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.

Traditional Malta Summer Feasts

What comes to mind when you think of Malta during summer? Feast, food, fun, sun, holidays, relaxing, fireworks…. Oh the list is endless!

It is widely known that during the summer months there is a feast almost every week. But one of the biggest feasts in Malta is that of Santa Maria which is celebrated on the 15th August. Several towns and villages around Malta celebrate Santa Maria, namely Mosta, Attard, Mqabba, Qrendi, Gudja, Ghaxaq and Victoria Gozo. Besides it is also a religious and public holiday in Malta so even the Maltese are out to celebrate.
