Gorgeous beaches like those of the Caribbean, cultural wealth in the capital Valletta and exclusive luxury shopping: many worlds meet in Malta. Anyone who wants to spend a holiday in a 5-star hotel is in good hands on the diverse island. With its charm it convinces many luxury holidaymakers and on top of that it captivates with its beautiful nature.
A holiday in a 5-star hotel in Malta naturally includes a little bit of Luxury shopping. The capital Valletta in the north-east of the island is a real shopping paradise: Shops with national and international brands make the hearts of all fashion connoisseurs beat faster. The exclusive boutiques and small cafés on Republic Street give the quarter a special atmosphere but shopping is not the only thing that makes Valletta so charming. The Upper Barrakka Gardens are especially worth a visit. The gardens shine with beautiful architecture and a well-kept fountain in the middle of the park. Moreover, from there, one has a great view over the Grand Harbour. The St. John`s Co Cathedral in Valletta also impresses with its interesting architecture. The church was built in the 16th century and golden decorations in the splendid baroque style adorn the interior of the cathedral. Thanks to its cultural wealth, the city is in theUNESCO World Heritage List since 1980 and was even declared European Capital of Culture in 2018. So for all those interested in culture, the capital is an absolute must.
Those who stay over night in a 5 stars hotel in the north of the island should not pass up a visit to Mellieha Bay. It is the longest beach of the island and blooms full of life: Locals as also vacationers gather at the beach in order to enjoy the Mediterranean sun and the crystal clear water. Some places are particularly shallow and quiet, making it increasingly popular with families with small children. Water sports enthusiasts are also well catered for on the beach: both water skiing and windsurfing are popular sports in Malta. On the other hand, the complete contrast program can be found in Ghajn Tuffieha in the northwest of the island. The small bay with its idyllic tranquillity and picturesque landscape is a real insider’s tip and especially popular with beach holidaymakers and couples.
There are no 5-star hotels on the Sister Islands, but they shine with their unique beauty: Comino is the smallest of the three and is known above all for its Blue Lagoon. The clear turquoise-blue water between the bays makes the lagoon live up to its name. You can visit the place on a day trip by boat and get an idea of the incredible scenery. The other neighbouring island of Gozo is the perfect place if you like it a bit quieter and want to enjoy your holiday away from the hustle and bustle. Just go for a walk, switch off and capture the one or other motif of the great landscape. But if you have ever been to Gozo, the best place to go is the island capital Victoria. Restaurants and cafés welcome visitors warmly and round off the trip to the island.
