It’s difficult to call it history when it’s still so present: these islands are etched with millennia of bygone times, from the walled Silent City of Mdina to the craggy Gozo coast bearing the mark of a complex past. Its myriad of architectural styles, ancient landscapes and rich culture are all shaped by centuries of change. Out of this indelible link with the past comes a breath of something new, honouring the archipelago’s history but also bringing a distinct touch of modern sophistication.

Located in St George’s Bay, a buzzy cove just a short drive from Valletta, InterContinental Malta embodies the new face of the island nation. Splashed with dusky hues of paint, the hotel’s spacious rooms open onto a private balcony, while the luxury suites are decked out with state-of-the-art technology and offer access to Club InterContinental lounge and an ocean-view terrace — the perfect spot for cocktails and canapes.

Foodies are spoilt for choice at InterContinental Malta. Fresh seafood and Sicilian-style dishes grace the tables at Paranga, a waterside restaurant with a teak deck overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. The enticing sizzle of the grill during summer nights will rouse the appetite of guests passing by Narcis Pool Bar & Grill, while creative Maltese specialities are on the menu at Al Fresco Gardens, set within the hotel’s landscaped gardens. Last but not least, the marble and charcoal-hued Waterbiscuit serves delicious, nutritious plates throughout the day.

The indulgence continues onto the rooftop, where an infinity pool looks out over the turquoise bay. Carisma Spa & Wellness is a must for guests looking to unplug from modern life, complete with saunas and steam baths, plus an array of treatments on offer — from facials, body wraps and scrubs to massages, mani-pedis and reflexology.

With 24 meeting rooms — some hosting up to 1,700 delegates — InterContinental Malta also caters for any business meeting, conference or event.

Sandy beaches, excellent watersports, a thriving foodie scene and historic UNESCO sites are all to be enjoyed in Malta, with InterContinental Malta the perfect place to discover these tiny islands’ rich, colourful identity.
