The Phoenicia Malta


The recently re-opened Phoenicia Malta has undergone a large-scale refurbishment reaffirming its long-held reputation as Malta’s leading luxury hotel. A recent addition to the CampbellGray Hotels portfolio, the relaunch heralds a new era for this much loved grand hotel located in the island’s capital, Valletta.

 The Phoenicia’s renovation is testament to the commitment by CampbellGray Hotels to providing unmatched comfort, thoughtful service and modern amenities that today’s luxury global travellers expect.

As The Phoenicia Malta’s architectural beauty is widely considered to be one of the sights of Malta, the re-launch is sympathetic to the hotel’s heritage with the design by Peter Young Design and Mary Fox Linton.

Gordon Campbell Gray, Founder of CampbellGray Hotels said “The Phoenicia has long been regarded as the Grand Dame Hotel of Malta and, when the opportunity arose to take over this classic property, I jumped at the chance. Our aim has been to restore The Phoenicia to its original grandeur yet implement improvements that will appeal to a discerning modern-day guest”.

Built in 1939, The Phoenicia was Malta’s first luxury hotel, giving it a wealth of history and a unique charm standing proudly on the doorstep of Valletta. Its interior harbours an imposing Art Deco influence sustaining 128 bedrooms and 8 suites, affording some truly majestic views from most rooms and terraces. The lush 7.5-acre garden combines ornamental features with a dedicated kitchen garden that supplies the restaurant with fresh produce.

A stroll through its grounds leads the way to the hotel’s magnificent pool overlooking the Vallletta bastions that frame a panorama of harbour views below. Malta’s iconic historic hotel flanks the main gates of the capital Valletta. Built by the British in the 1930s, The Phoenicia was a favourite of the Queen and since its recent change of owner and 2017 major refurbishment has joined Leading Hotels of the World.
