Iniala Harbour House

Malta’s Iniala Harbour House is actually four side-by-side historical houses in Valletta, a city on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Overlooking the stunning Grand Harbour at St. Barbara Bastion, this boutique hotel by Iniala Group offers 23 uniquely designed accommodations — from sprawling suites with kitchenettes and plunge pools to cozy rooms with epic harbor views from your bathtub. And despite the buildings that date back to the 1600s, all of the accommodations have sleek, modern design punctuated with bold art and sculptures. Located on the rooftop, ION Harbour, the hotel’s flagship restaurant by notable chef Alex Dilling, is a local favorite for haute cuisine. Essensi spa, within the hotel’s ancient vaults (similar to a stone wine cellar), offers an extensive treatment menu, a heated pool, a sauna and a relaxation room that provides utter tranquility.
