Best Boutique Hotels in Malta and Gozo

There is something wonderfully enchanting about Malta. Diverse landscapes complement an incredibly rich and mixed heritage (due to a long line of rulers that took over) - it is certainly a unique island in the Mediterranean that is set between Sicily and the coast of North Africa. Original housing and palazzos have cave-like interiors and a Renaissance and Art Nouveau imprint of style. Places such as the 16th-century masterpiece Grandmasters’ Palace, majestic Royal Opera House and the Sacra Infermeria are an immediate step back in time. Valletta is the buzzy city that welcomes thousands of curious cruise passengers on a daily basis, Gozo is an isolated slice of paradise and Birgu is a historical area which is great to visit. You can unwind and enjoy sundowners on the beach or one of many beautiful bays or get your hiking shoes on to unravel the historical jewels and culture of the island. In 2018 Valletta was named European Capital of Culture and we can see why. Thinking of planning a holiday to Malta or more specifically Gozo? Here are some of the best boutique hotels to book.
