The Phoenicia, the first luxury hotel in Malta, is situated in 7.5 acres of mature gardens at the entrance to Valletta, the capital city. Commanding glorious views from its elevated position overlooking the port, Mediterranean and the historic city dating back to 1566, the hotel is within walking distance of the Island's shopping and business districts, as well as the bustling restaurants and cafes of the waterfront. The impressive Parliament House building, designed by Renzo Piano, is opposite the hotel through the city's "gates". The Phoenicia's architectural beauty is classed as one of the sights of Malta, along with other historic buildings, such as St. John's Co-Cathedral, the Grand Masters Palace and the Auberge de Castille. Its typical Maltese style is a striking contrast to the baroque and massive bastion walls that surround Valletta.The hotel guest rooms feature traditional Maltese tiled floors and large double-glazed windows, and the hotel's two restaurants serve delectable Mediterranean cuisine in a romantic and stylish setting. Guests can enjoy a drink at the club bar or in the elegant palm court lounge with live music, and relax with a book in the tranquil gardens or on the impressive outdoor pool deck set next to a towering Valletta bastion and with spectacular views of the harbour.
