My favourite spot in Malta

Excelsior Hotel Malta Views

From its position on Malta’s most breathtaking waterfront, the Grand Hotel Excelsior Malta is a truly memorable property, both in terms of the beautiful setting and the luxuriousness of the hotel itself. A few minutes walk from the centre of Malta’s capital city, Valletta, the hotel manages to be both a relaxed beach resort and a city centre hotel within easy reach of a picturesque 16th century walled town filled with priceless architecture, culture and art. It is the ideal blend for those who are looking to experience the very best that this part of the island has to offer.

Ideal Location – near Valletta

The superior 5 star hotel in Malta is perfect for exploring Valletta (designated the European Capital city of culture 2018), from taking in the sights and sounds of the traditional markets, to attractions like the National Museum of Fine Arts, the Malta Experience and the St. John’s Co-Cathedral and St. John’s Museum, which are only a short walk away. Many of Malta’s most historic spots including the Grand Master’s Palace and the Fort St. Elmo are equally as accessible and the hotel affords stunning views out over Marsamxett Harbour and Manoel Island, as well as being ideally located for exploring the rest of the island.

Superior rooms for your holiday

The carefully designed rooms in the hotel blend the classic and contemporary, incorporating uncompromising five-star features with all the modern convenience that you would expect from such a luxe establishment. The views are particularly breathtaking – The Deluxe Partial Sea View Rooms offer 90-degree views of Marsamxett Harbour and Manoel Island and for an especially spectacular vista, the views from the Deluxe Seafront Rooms extend an impressive 180 degrees.

5 star facilities and service

The hotel itself is a VIP experience from start to finish and, as a result, has hosted everyone from royalty to international celebrities within its walls. The broad range of facilities cements this status–here you will find everything from a private sandy beach to award winning chefs producing mouthwatering dishes at the hotel’s numerous dining establishments, such as the Tiki Bar & Restaurant and the Spice Island Restaurant. Le Grand Spa is an onsite haven of pampering – the exclusive Thai Maharlika treatment is particularly worth trying – and there are large indoor and outdoor pools within the grounds, a private 30-berth marina and a number of sophisticated bars in which to enjoy a cool sunset drink whilst enjoying the spectacular views from the elegant hotel grounds.

Valentine’s Day Do’s & Don’ts (Part 2)

Grand Life January-March small-page-004

Have you enjoyed reading Our Valentine’s Day Do Not Do List? Here’s a list of what you can do to make your Special Person’s Valentine’s Day that little bit more Special…

Do’s:
1. Send a surprise gift to your sweetheart’s place of work or home. Alternatively, deliver the gift personally if possible.
2. When selecting a gift for the special person in your life, ensure that it can be used all year round. Avoid items which say ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’. Go for something practical.
3. Choose something which has a personal touch to it such as engraved item.
4. Ladies, consider his hobbies and interests when choosing his gift. If he is a fan of video games, the latest version of his favourite one might score you high points! Plus it’s safer than coming up with original gifts which he might not like.
5. Try to make a card yourself. There are many beautiful cards you can buy at the store, but putting an extra effort to do something different and original will add little bit of romance.
6. Prepare a home-cooked meal yourself, whether its breakfast in bed or lovely candle-lit dinner.
7. Be romantic – make an effort to dress up and be sure to compliment your loved one. Even if you aren’t the most romantic type try your best on this special day.
8. Ignore you electronic devices, including your mobile, as much as possible.
9. Gentlemen, write a love letter to your partner, summarising your feelings, the reasons why you fell in love with her and what makes her so significant for you. It is likely that she will keep that letter as a reminder of the unique connection you have for the rest of her life. If the letter is hand-written, you will enhance the sense of romance.
10. Make an extra effort to please your partner, such as accepting to watch a movie that suits his/her tastes more than yours.
11. Offer your partner a massage. Rather than organising a day at the spa, take the matter in your own hands and do some research basic massage techniques. All you need is your hands, massage oil, relaxing music and scented candles.
12. Prepare a surprise for your Valentine when s/he gets home. Put little notes around your home with romantic messages or prepare a follow the lead game which will eventually lead to a surprise gift.
13. Relax, take it easy and make sure not to over do it. All it takes to make this day special is a bit of thought and fantasy. Making an effort should not be too difficult, since it is for that one person you share your life with.

So spend some quality time with your better half this Valentine’s Day. Book a couple’s spa package, a romantic dinner, a relaxing evening with some live jazz music or spend a few days at the Grand Hotel Excelsior Malta.
