The Harbour Club

Our ability to provide this experience in a carefully converted warehouse that was built by the 64th Grand Master of the Order of Malta in 1712, gives our diners a unique dining experience. Indoors, one may enjoy a cosy interior, decorated elegantly with a recycled deck of an American ship. On the terrace, the stunning view of the Grand Harbour as you enjoy a glass of wine and one of our exquisite dishes, will remain memorable.

Forbes Travel Guide’s 2022 Star Award Winners

Travel has made its big comeback. All of those delayed openings and canceled vacations, conferences and celebratory getaways have given hotels and resorts plenty of time to upgrade their services, rejuvenate their facilities and re-envision a better experience for guests. As travelers return to their favorite properties—or seek out new ones—Forbes Travel Guide has announced its 2022 Star Awards for the world’s most outstanding hotels, restaurants and spas. For the 64th annual list, FTG ventured into new destinations, such as the Canary Islands, Greece, Ibiza and Malta. The winners include 323 Five-Star hotels, 558 Four-Star properties and 401 Recommended hotels. There are also 74 Five-Star restaurants this year, 112 Four-Star eateries and 67 Recommended restaurants, as well as 102 Five-Star and 193 Four-Star spas worldwide. To find the best of the best, Forbes Travel Guide’s incognito inspectors stay at each hotel for three days and two nights, posing as ordinary guests. They test up to 900 objective, rigorous standards, from modern-day luxuries—such as whether a room is set up to enhance sleep or whether the food-and-beverage choices are health-conscious—to more traditional amenities, such as the quality of the décor and the courtesy of the staff. Seventy-five percent of a hotel’s rating relies on service, while the remaining 25 percent is determined by the quality of its facilities. See the full list of 2022 Star Awards winners here, and learn more about the newest additions to the collection below.

La Falconeria

Located in the center of Valletta, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, La Falconeria Hotel is close to many of the capital city’s gems, including St. John’s Co-Cathedral, museums, restaurants and bars. But the Malta hotel has its own draws: it resides in a rococo-style structure that dates to the 1500s, and some of the building’s historical elements have been preserved, including a limestone lion at the bottom of the marble staircase and an original cistern that makes up La Falconeria’s plunge pool. The back half of the hotel was destroyed in World War II, so it feels more modern even with the historical touches, and an open-air courtyard sits in the middle. Among the 43 rooms, the executive suites are the highlight — they come with a large terrace overlooking the cityscape or Marsamxett Harbour. Other onsite amenities include a gym and a lounge.

The 137 rooms and suites are tastefully appointed in soothing neutral tones, each with brown marble bathrooms and balconies. The spa is a sanctuary, with a full indoor hydrotherapy circuit, a Turkish hammam, and one of Europe’s largest ayurvedic centers. There’s an excellent fitness facility and two outdoor tennis courts. Hotel dining includes L’Ortolan and Il-Baldakkin Bistro and Lounge, Mediterranean restaurants that feature locally sourced meat and seafood and organic produce grown on the grounds; Gazebo, a seasonal alfresco grill; and The Pool Bar, a warm-weather spot serving refreshing cocktails and snacks to replenish you after a swim.

Urban Valley

Tucked inside the leafy Wied Ghollieqa Nature Reserve, Urban Valley Resort & Spa gives you easy access to the great outdoors (including the largest population of Malta’s endangered national tree, the sandarac gum). Yet, its central location also puts you close to the island’s most popular and visited sites. When it comes time to return to the Malta hotel, make use of the tennis courts, archery offerings and spa, which includes a pinewood sauna, steam room, indoor heated pool, fitness area and three treatment rooms. For cocktails, try Thistle Lounge Bar or alfresco Viento, and for meals, make a beeline for Silver Heron or the seasonal Tri Bistro. Elsewhere on the property, you’ll find amenities like a greenhouse and gardens, two large freshwater outdoor pools — one of which is for children — and a spacious deck overlooking the nature reserve. The most luxurious overnight options are the penthouses with marble floors, roomy terraces and outdoor sun loungers.
