This week we revisited The Phoenicia, a hotel located in a superb spot, just outside the vibrant capital of Valletta on the edge of the city’s 16th century bastions and surrounded by gorgeous landscaped gardens. Both a landmark and a luxury retreat, this hotel is proud to be celebrated as Malta’s most iconic hotel. After an extensive refurbishment over the last few years, the latest addition to the hotel is now ready!
Introducing the Deep Nature Spa, an environment of sophistication and light.
We love the use of materials like walnut timber, marble and Maltese stone that give this spa a modern yet natural environment making it a genuine Maltese retreat. The historical wall that runs through the spa forms the spine of the area through which the old and new sit beautifully together.
This spa boasts an indoor pool, a fitness area with state-of-the-art equipment, a relaxation area featuring a salt room, sauna, steam room and multi-jet showers along with 5 treatment rooms were you can treat yourself to a tailor-made massage or expert facial treatment.
This latest addition is a top luxury service that should not be missed when visiting this fantastic hotel.
New Embassy Valletta Hotel opens its doors
The Embassy Valletta Hotel has just opened its doors and is welcoming guests in its 81 beautifully designed four-star superior rooms. The hotel is located in Valletta’s iconic Strait Street and in close proximity to all places of interest, making it an ideal spot to explore the city. The design offers a combination of modern and contemporary features in a cosy atmosphere, providing an aura of comfort and casualness.
The hotel features luxurious and spacious rooms including a mix of Deluxe Rooms and Family Suites, together with Superior Rooms that boast breathtaking views over the city and Marsamxett Harbour. An energising breakfast is served on the hotel’s rooftop terrace – a unique space to start your day or witness spectacular sunsets above the city with unexpected panoramic views stretching to Mdina and beyond.
Guests staying at the Embassy Valletta Hotel can also experience the roof top heated infinity pool, which can be enjoyed at any time of the year. The focus of all activity is the elegant, bright, and comfortable courtyard, where one can meet at any time of the day and taste an array of light culinary delights and cocktails. The Embassy Valletta Hotel features excellent conference facilities equipped with the latest technology and a dedicated events team tasked to deliver seamless businesses experiences. Guests can also de-stress and keep active during their stay in the hotel’s fitness room.
Hubert Debono, general manager of the Embassy Valletta Hotel, said: “We want to provide our guests with a fresh and inviting atmosphere where they can enjoy an unforgettable stay in the heart of Valletta. The Embassy Valletta Hotel is the perfect starting point for a unique discovery journey of Malta’s capital. We’ve combined the city’s quintessential charm with a contemporary sense of style to meet and exceed the expectations of our guests.”
The opening of the Embassy Valletta Hotel is the final stage in the complete renovation project of the Embassy building in Valletta. The project has been driven by the vision and passion of one of Malta’s leading architects, Martin Xuereb and his team. They have managed to achieve the seemingly impossible design according to the Embassy’s vision of retaining the pre-existing building envelope and height while at the same time incorporating Valletta’s largest hotel with all its facilities, six boutique cinema theatres, as well as Agenda Bookshop, Costa Coffee, Bingo Hall, Dean Gera Hair Salon and AKI Restaurant.
