The Art of Glassblowing

Since Valletta Glass started its operation almost thirty years ago, skilled men has endured the tremendous heat to create beautiful forms from the fire using nothing more than their breath and a few simple tools. Working hard to polish their skills to uniformity and precision, each creation is as individual as the maker. A big variety of Valletta Glass unique pieces is available at this Luxury Malta Hotel’s Gift Shop, which is open daily from 8:30 am to 6:00 pm.

Should you wish to see a master of this craft at work, please contact Josette or Chris at our Executive Chauffeur Driven Office in the Grand Hotel Excelsior Lobby and we will help you get to the Crafts Village in Ta’ Qali, limits of Rabat, which is also very close to Old Capital City of Mdina.

If you would like to experience Malta and its traditions, the dedicated team at  this leading Luxury Malta Hotel will help you  plan your holiday. So book your  Malta Accommodation in a centrally located hotel near Valletta.
