A 19th-century former private villa, the elegant Corinthia Palace is in the village of Attard, between the medieval walled city of Mdina and the harbourside capital of Valletta. The San Anton Palace and botanical gardens are next door.
The St George's Bay hotel, recommended by Condé Nast Johansen's, has sweeping views of the Mediterranean and a private balcony in every room. There are nine restaurants and bars to choose from and the sandy beach and entertainment centre of St Julian's are only a 5-minute walk away. A free shuttle bus runs daily from both hotels to Valletta, the resort of Sliema and Marsa Golf Club.
A 2-night minimum stay applies. You may need to be flexible with dates to get the best price.
