Located right inside Mdina’s mediaeval walls (Malta’s highest point), Xara Palace is a luxury boutique hotel -a member of the prestigious Relais & Châteaux organisation- and provides quiet accommodation with breath-taking views over Malta and the Mediterranean sea. Mdina’s monuments, museums and Roman villas are just a few steps away.
Set in a 17th-century palazzo, interiors feature antique furniture and original paintings as well as the latest modern amenities.
Stay in one of just 17 unique and exclusive, individually decorated rooms and suites (28-101m2) which feature romantic decor, original paintings, antique tapestries and furnishings. Some come with their own panoramic terraces and hot tubs or are set on two levels, with their own lounges. All come with air conditioning, DVD and CD players, and king-size beds.
Work out in the Palace’s small gym and follow up with a relaxing sauna before heading to the De Mondion Gourmet Restaurant with its fabulous views or the more casual Trattoria AD 1530 on the intimate piazza for a delicious dinner.
