We enjoy travel and take several breaks each year to new destinations but we have been visiting The Phoenicia regularly each June for many years.......we went first to explore Malta's many historic sights and enjoy its superb climate. We now return each year in order to stay at The Phoenicia - to get away from our hectic working lives and take time to relax and recharge our batteries .
The Phoenicia, which is one of our favourite hotels in the world, is a welcoming five star hotel which has much to offer the discerning traveller seeking to escape to a haven of peace and quiet. It 's location just minutes from the entrance to Valletta, the island's capital which is a world heritage site, and also the main bus station, is ideal for those wanting to explore Malta's rich heritage.
But although the hotel is at the heart of the popular island, once through the hotel's main doors residents find a cool haven of peace and tranqulity. The staff are its biggest asset, always being warm and friendly and ready to help in any way. Many have been at the hotel for a long time, helping to give it a family-run atmosphere and all seem to be proud to work at The Phoenicia which has a special place in Malta's history.
The hotel's Palm Court Lounge and main restaurant have recently been refurbished and both now look even more inviting. The work has been done with imagination, with the impressive new look in keeping with the hotel's colonial character which is one of its biggest charms. The bedrooms on the third and fourth floors have also been tastefully refurbished and among the new features is flat screen televisions. The first and second floors are due to be done this winter.
The hotel's 'secret garden' at the rear is a must see.....it is full of colourful blooms and a joy to explore on a summer's day - or in the evening when it smells fantastic. The pool is at the end of the garden, hidden from the rest of the hotel, and is a real discovery for first time visitors. The pool area is large with shady areas, a bar and poolside cafe. There are plenty of comfortable loungers for sun worshippers and the views of the harbour are fantastic. But most of all it never feels crowded!
We have no hestitation in recommending this superb hotel and am sure new visitors will find it as appealing as we do.
