Searching for the perfect blend of peace, sun and style? Think holidays in Sliema.
It may be one of Malta's most popular resorts, but Sliema is something special. Even its name tells you that – 'sliem' is Maltese for peace. Need we say more? Sophisticated Sliema leaves the bright lights and raucous nights to its neighbours and sedately gets in with offering 5 star treatment to its guests. So bag a bargain holiday to Sliema and get those Prada sunnies ready for action.
Once the hotspot for the wealthy residents of Valletta, Sliema's streets are still lined with their honey-coloured town houses and elegant villas. And the town's clientele haven't changed much either. Make like them and spoil yourself rotten at the Fortina Spa Resort 5Star or sit back beside the rooftop pool at Hotel Waterfront, drinking in the views across the bay to Valletta.
Slip on your sandals and take a leisurely stroll along the 5 kilometre long promenade – the centre of Sliema's life. At one end is St Julian's Bay. At the other, smooth rock platforms that dip down into the sea. In between, boutiques and craft shops jostle with restaurants and cafes, lidos and watersports stalls.
Evenings in Sliema are what you make them. A candlelit dinner of fine cuisine, be it Italian, Mexican or Maltese. Followed up by a trip in karozzin (horse and cart) and a glass of wine under the stars at a quiet bar. Or grab a burger before heading off to Paceville's raging nightlife – bars, clubs and disco galore.
Sliema holidays – the sophisticated way to enjoy Malta.
