A 19th-century former private villa, the elegant Corinthia Palace is in the heart of Malta, between the medieval walled city of Mdina and the harbourside capital of Valletta. It's next to the botanical gardens and the San Anton Presidential Palace. The hotel has indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a Jacuzzi, a fitness centre and a spa offering over 50 different treatments, plus an oxygen bar and a flotation tank. Dining options range from the formal Villa Corinthia to a pizza and pasta restaurant and a cafe. A free shuttle bus runs daily to Valletta, the resort of Sliema and Marsa Golf Club, and to lively St Julian's in the evening.
Simonseeks, the independent travel review website, describes the hotel as "calm and peaceful... tucked away from other tourists", providing "a taste of what Malta was like 20 or 30 years ago".
