The island country of Malta is directly south of Italy in the Mediterranean Sea. Mdina, the island's historic capital, is in the center of the island. Malta International Airport is 20 minutes from Xara Palace, with limousine service available.
About This Hotel
The question isn't why stay at The Xara Palace Relais & Chateaux, perched on a hilltop on the island of Malta and surrounded by the ancient fortifications of Mdina. It's why not.
Whether arranging a vacation or robbing a bank, the planning process tends to follow the same trajectory. First confusion. Then revelation. Then clarity. In the case of The Xara Palace Relais & Chateaux, the revelation is this: Why would I stay in a resort when I can stay in a 17th-century palace? The rest takes care of itself.
The palace's outer shell may be old, but the amenities sure aren't. Free wireless internet is available in most rooms and public areas, while a mini gym and sauna help fight the not-so-inevitable vacation bulge. On the other hand, the gourmet dining of on-site Mediterranean restaurant de Mondion, routinely voted the best in Malta, might send you packing with a couple extra pounds. And don't even get started on the pizza at Trattoria A.D. 1530 and tasting trips to the nearby Meridiana Wine Estate.
Nearby casinos, nature walks, boat charters, and historical sites keep you busier than you likely thought possible on this sleepy Mediterranean Island.
