All Inclusive Holidays in Malta
Why go all inclusive to Malta?
Malta's high quality all-inclusive resorts are little self-contained oases by the sea where the emphasis is on long lazy days in the sun, swimming from a blue flag beach or relaxing by the pool with every need taken care of. Maltese hospitality is second-to-none and you can expect friendly and experienced staff, top-notch service and well-equipped facilities.
Staying at a beachside all-inclusive resort in Malta makes perfect sense if your prime reason for travelling is to enjoy the blue skies, golden sand and deep bays glinting in the sun. With all your meals, drinks and beach facilities close to hand, you can concentrate on enjoying the blissful scenery and balmy weather.
In the spirit of unwinding on holiday, many Maltese all-inclusive hotels feature gorgeous on-site spas offering beauty treatments and relaxation therapies. The island is also known for its crystalline blue waters and excellent diving prospects so some of the larger resorts have their own dive centres with scuba for everyone from beginners to experts. It's a great opportunity to get to know the underwater world, and there's usually snorkelling equipment and other watersports available too for those who prefer exploring from the surface.
Some of Malta's all-inclusive hotels are more like mini villages with everything you could wish for an exceptional stay. In the seaside tourist town of Bugibba in the north-east of Malta, the four-star San Antonio Hotel and Spa is a popular choice for travellers who want to stay in a self-contained resort. Rooms have balconies with a view and fresh and bright interiors, there's a smart buffet plus a la carte restaurants serving up fusion and Moroccan cuisine and there's a huge outdoor pool in sight of the seashore with plenty of sunloungers for catching the rays. Guests in search of a haven of tranquillity can take advantage of the rooftop infinity pool for adults only and visit the traditional Moroccan-style Marquis Spa with a long list of treatments to indulge in.
In the same region, St Paul's Bay is known for its quiet and relaxing ambience, with some beautiful spots for swimming in clear deep water from the rocky shore and a view over to St Paul's Island opposite. The best all-inclusive accommodation packages here include Seashells Resort at Suncrest and Dolmen Resort Hotel and Spa.
All about the beach
Enjoying a resort-based holiday anywhere in the world is about choosing a well-equipped hotel in the right location. If you are visiting Malta for a bucket-and-spade holiday with the kids then Malta's northern peninsula offers the most enticing beachside resorts. Mellieha has some excellent accommodation options if you want an all-inclusive hotel by the beach that's also within easy reach of shops, eateries and entertainment. The town sits on a hillside above the longest sandy beach in Malta, skimming the edge of a wide turquoise bay. Fortunately Mellieha boasts one of the island's best all-inclusives - the four-star Seabank Resort, with several restaurants and bars all included in the overall price, and situated just a stone's throw from the golden strip of sand. The Hotel Mellieha Bay is a slightly cheaper option that still has top-notch all-inclusive facilities.
Also indenting Malta's picturesque northern peninsula, Golden Bay, a wide shelf of soft pale golden sand flanked by hillsides and with several eateries set back from the water, is said to be the most scenic beach in Malta. The Radisson Blu Golden Sands Resort and Spa has the prime spot just behind the beach and features an all-inclusive package that more than covers all the basics. There's a choice of places to eat and drink, a large seafront pool and a wide range of aquatic activities to ensure everyone has fun in the water. As well as the beach, the hotel is right next to the unspoilt landscapes of Malta's first national park, Majjistral Nature and History Park, criss-crossed with walking paths and where you can take in lofty views from towering seacliffs and discover an old World War Two observation post.
Slightly more remote but very appealing none-the-less, the large, luxurious and all-inclusive Ramla Bay Resort on the northernmost point of the island has a private sandy beach and large welcoming Maltese-style rooms with balconies overlooking the ocean or the countryside. It's a self-contained resort with a large buffet restaurant and an al fresco seafront eatery, plus an all-day snack bar, and a cocktail terrace at the water's edge. Whether you want to relax or try some refreshing activities, the Watersports Hut offers everything from jet skiing to parasailing, while free sunloungers are available on the beach. The hotel's Spa Du Soleil is a haven of tranquillity with a pool, sauna and palm-shaded gazebo offering indulgent facials, massages and other calming therapies.
Paradise Bay is among Malta's prettiest beaches and the all-inclusive Paradise Bay Resort Hotel is just nearby, with its own private stretch of golden sand, a spa, PADI-accredited dive centre, and easy access to the rest of the island via a resort-run transfer, several bus routes and its close proximity to ferry services. Like Ramla Bay Resort, the four-star Paradise Bay hotel is near to the northern port of Cirkewwa where you can board boats to the neighbouring isles of Comino and Gozo. Water babies in particular should not miss a trip to Comino's Blue Lagoon, a natural lido of crystal-clear calm water surrounded by smooth flat rocks.
Venturing beyond the resort
Travellers keen to venture beyond the relaxing confines of the resort should head straight for the magnificent island capital of Valletta, built by the crusader knights of St John and with more than enough atmospheric places to fill up a day's sightseeing. The medieval citadel city of Mdina with pedestrianised streets and island views is another lovely spot to stroll and explore. Owing to the stunning natural beauty of Malta's coastline, boat trips are another popular activity for visitors. Most all-inclusive hotels arrange excursions for guests or will be happy to offer you information on local tours and transport.
