Why Stay At Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa
The tiny island nation of Malta, easily accessible via a 90-minute flight from Rome, doesn't lack in holiday retreats, yet few compete with the Corinthia Palace Hotel and Spa, a 152-room hotel that provides complimentary massages and free shuttle service to a private beach.
Though lesser known than neighboring Sicily, Malta, located 60 miles south at the crossroads of Africa and Europe, epitomizes the European holiday destination. The limestone island is filled with Roman and Greek ruins and lined with beaches that rival Sardinia's Emerald Coast. It's this mix of culture and luxury that draws savvy travelers to the Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa, a grand hotel set on the main island within a former 19th-century private villa, located between two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including the medieval city of Mdina. Not unlike Corinthia's other properties in more familiar destinations (London, Lisbon, St. Petersburg), this resort is accented with ornate design touches, including a columned dining room and a courtyard centered on a sunflower-sculpted fountain. The property's trump card, however, is that all of the 152 rooms have balconies that look onto more than three acres of sprawling grounds dotted with swimming pools, tennis courts, and verdant, meticulous gardens. After a day exploring the area, join island locals at one of the hotel's six restaurants, including Rickshaw for Asian-fusion and Azure Pool restaurants for fresh seafood salads.
Malta is known for its local crafts, especially handmade lacework tablecloths, ceramic plates, vibrantly painted pottery, and glasswork, sold in the village of Ta' Qali. Ask the hotel concierge to arrange to get you there by bus.
Corinthia offers a generous range of dining options. Be sure to try the poolside restaurant, Pizza, Pasta e Basta, for fresh pastas and crispy pizza pies.

Why We Love Attard
Located in the center of the island, Attard is close to everything, and offers everything—shopping, restaurants, theaters, museums, diving, and more.
Culture Watch: Malta's art scene plays second fiddle to the beaches, but that doesn't mean you should skip Tempra Museum, which houses Malta's only permanent modern art collection. Free admission. Municipal Council, Church Square, Malta. 011-356-21520011.
History Tour: Opt for a guided tour of Malta's stunning cathedrals and the Grand Master's Palace led by one of the many tour guides and skippers who wait for clients by the Grand Harbour waterfront. All guides are well versed in island lore, though be forewarned: few speak English. Grand Harbour, Valletta.
