WHEN IN MALTA
Iconic hotel The Phoenicia, located in Floriana just outside Malta’s capital city of Valletta, reopened earlier this year after major renovations.
Now part of the CampbellGray Hotels family, the distinctive property was carefully restored by Peter Young Design and Mary Fox Linton, who remained true to the noble building’s rich architectural legacy. The sprung loaded dance floor in the Ballroom, for example, a favorite of Queen Elizabeth’s, was kept intact. All 136 rooms were refurbished and upgraded, as were the hotel’s grounds, terraces and classic façade. New features include an outdoor infinity pool overlooking Masamxett Harbor, Café Phoenicia and PureGray Health Club and Spa. The Phoenicia is a fantastic new reason to visit Malta.
