Malta’s gem 4-star Hotel Windsor is located in one of the island’s most stylish resorts and has been a long time favourite amongst British tourists. With 92 rooms, some newly refurbished, you’ll be able to cruise the web with free WiFi in superior rooms and enjoy flat-screen TVs.
In its tight back-street setting, the Windsor’s restaurant is located next door, serving international food in a buffet style. After dinner, grab a drink in the cocktail bar, or enjoy a night celebrating the local culture. In the summer, you can enjoy a relaxing drink and great views at the rooftop pool bar. If the pool isn’t providing enough physical stimulation then jump into a good quality gym and pump some iron.
Sliema is good swimming territory if you want to jump into the Mediterranean Sea, but this isn’t a classic beach resort. Like most of the Maltese coastline, it is largely rocky without beaches, but this does not stop you from sunbathing or enjoying the vibrant water-sports provided along the coastline. Take a stroll along Sliema’s stunning promenade, one of the best and also the biggest in the Mediterranean.
Sliema is a great little resort on a great little island. The neighbouring St Julian has some lively clubbing to contrast with Sliema’s laid-back social scene. A little further down the coast, perhaps on a day trip by ferry, visit Valletta, the island’s capital, which is an exciting historic city with an increasingly trendy shopping and social scene, and lots of great things going on in the run-up to its year as European Capital of Culture.
