The Phoenicia


Iconic architecture, rolling gardens and five-star service on Valletta’s doorstep.

Malta’s capital city, Valletta, is sometimes known as ‘Superbissima’, or ‘most proud’.

It’s easy to see why when you take in the panoramic views of the city’s Grand Harbour and 17th century skyline – which is a UNESCO world heritage site – from the Palm Court lounge of The Phoenicia Hotel.

The Phoenicia is a member of the Leading Hotels of the World, and we think it’s the perfect base for couples to explore historic Valletta from.

The hotel itself is set in 7½ acres of gardens, which roll right up to the city’s ancient fortified walls. You can wander through the immaculate gardens, take a dip in the outdoor pool, or retreat from the sun in one of the freshly renovated rooms and suites. Campbell Gray Hotels and Peter Young Design have carefully restored the rooms to their former glory, even down to the detail of the original tiled floors.

It’s a secret escape, tucked away in its grounds so you feel you’re in a world of your own. And when you’re ready to explore, Valletta is on your doorstep, only ten minutes’ walk away.

The Phoenicia is a ten-minute walk from the Valletta waterfront, and 20 minutes’ drive from Malta international airport.
