The Palace is a luxury hotel at the top of a hill with views over Sliema city and the Mediterranean Sea on the island of Malta. The hotel is steps from Ghar Id-Dud, the nearest sandy stretch of shoreline, and looks out to the capital city, Valletta. There's also a boat-lined harbour within walking distance where you can enjoy a drink or bite to eat at the local bars, restaurants or cafes. The hotel has a contemporary look with modern furniture and statement lights including a grand chandelier in the lobby. There are three restaurants and three bars, some with panoramic views of the coast. The Palace also has two outdoor swimming pools with plenty of places to relax in the sun or the shade. If you fancy a drink during the day, you can use the pool waiter service, so you won't have to get up from your lounger. Over 18s can use the hotel's spa where there's an indoor pool and sauna. You can also book wellness and beauty treatments such as massages, facials and manicures. If you'd like to go exploring, Bizazza Street is a short stroll from the hotel. There you'll find more restaurants and shopping centres selling everything from clothes to souvenirs.
The coastline in this part of the island is rugged with flat rocks rather than beaches but there are sandy stretches of shore such as Balluta Bay, 1km from the hotel. Here you can go swimming, snorkelling or scuba diving. In the heart of Sliema, you'll find boutique shops and high street chains, one of the most popular areas being Bisazza Street, 400m away.
