The Maltese summer is reaching new, refined heights

The warmer months at the Phoenicia Malta are a sublime mix of food, drink, music and wellness.

Sunsets overlooking the inifinity pool nestled in the heart of Valletta’s 16th-century fortifications, Msida creek shimmering in the distance? Don’t mind if we do. Add a cocktail and a sushi platter, and we’re talking perfection.

The Phoenicia Malta has ushered in the return of Maltese summertime with the launch of a new programme of laid-back luxury summer experiences, with many al fresco events focused on the gloriously-appointed The Bastion Pool, alongside special spa and wellness experiences. Officially launched last week, The Phoenicia Malta Summer Experience features regular events designed to help guests relax and rejuvenate while the sun shines, all held within the luxurious comfort of this five-star location.

Mediterranean living is elevated thanks to a focus on wellness, with a summer programme that include Sunrise Yoga and a Sunset Fitness Class – both held in the tranquillity of the hotel’s renowned gardens. Guests after a more energetic session can also keep fit in style in the ABS & TONE Classes with Sam on Fridays throughout June, as well as indulging in The Phoenicia Malta’s state-of-the-art spa.

Entertainment and culinary delights are also very much on the summer schedule, with Summer Evenings By The Pool at the Bastion Pool Bar & Restaurant. The Phoenicia Malta’s Insta-worthy infinity pool, the series includes a themed event with live music every weekday evening.

Flavours of Sicily presents exquisite Sicilian wines in collaboration with Donnafugata Winery every Monday, served alongside a specially crafted Sicilian dish, while rum lovers shouldn’t miss the selection of Zacapa Rum cocktails at South American Vibes on Tuesdays.

Barbecue Under The Stars offers a mid-week barbecue the Maltese way and, to complete the week, guests can sit back at a Gin & Jazz evening on Thursdays and tequila Fridays in collaboration with Don Julio Tequila. Plus, guests can take a front-row seat, cocktail in hand, to Malta’s exquisite summer sunset at a Sundown Chillout session with a DJ every Sunday. Within the hotel’s elegant Palm Court Lounge, there’s also the chance to while away the summer to the tunes of the resident pianist, or even mix and mingle with The Phoenicia Malta’s management.

To create more sublime summer moments, The Phoenicia Malta has carefully curated a regularly updated series of luxury experiences across Malta, such as a local wine tasting at Markus Divinus, a picnic harbour boat cruise, a chauffeur-driven day tour or a romantic moonlight swim exclusively for two at The Phoenicia Spa & Wellness.

“Our goal is to provide a haven of relaxation, wellness and entertainment for both our local and international guests as their summer destination of choice, with a vibrant summer programme that epitomises the spirit of Maltese hospitality,” says The Phoenicia Malta General Manager, Robyn Pratt. “We invite everyone to experience the magic of a Mediterranean summer at The Phoenicia Malta.”
