Rooms

All 136 of our luxury bedrooms and suites at The Phoenicia Malta have been lovingly restored.

In collaboration with Peter Young Design, The Phoenicia Malta have worked to retain the original features of the rooms, including the authentic tiled floors. Our rooms benefit from astonishing views made possible by the hotel’s unique vantage point overlooking the island’s historic buildings, the Grand Harbour and Valletta, Malta’s capital city.

Destination

Megaliths, medieval dungeons and Calypso’s Cave – The Maltese Islands are positively mythical.

The narrow meandering streets of the towns and villages are crowded with Renaissance cathedrals and Baroque palaces. The countryside is dotted with the oldest known human structures in the world and the Islands have rightly been described as an open air museum.
