Located in the northern part of the island and overlooking the turquoise waters of St. Paul’s Bay, the all-inclusive DB San Antonio hotel oozes class and indulgence. One of the largest hotels in Malta, it has a variety of modern facilities including restaurants, bars, fitness and spa facilities. With a choice of two outdoor swimming pools, a kids’ option and a 10th-floor rooftop pool (the rooftop pool is open mid-June till mid-September (weather permitting)), the hotel is also within walking distance to the sandy beach, meaning those wanting to swim are well looked after.
Conveniently located for exploring, the hotel is also close to the casino, National Aquarium, and public transport links, making the delightful St Paul’s Bay region easily accessible. If you’re looking for pure relaxation, the Moorish style Spa Centre offers a range of natural treatments, with a hammam, sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi, so you can put your feet up and unwind. Indulge your taste buds by visiting one of the five on-site restaurants, serving a range of cuisines from Indian and Moroccan to Italian and Asian. Afterwards, head to the Kosy bar for a delicious cocktail or two, whilst watching the live entertainment.
The DB San Antonio Hotel and Spa is located in the village of St. Paul’s Bay in the north of Malta. Traditionally, the town was a fisherman’s village but this has changed over the years as tourism has become a more constant presence. Despite this, the town has retained the quiet character of Maltese village life, mainly down to the fact that its population is just 22,000. Overlooking the bay, the DB San Antonio Hotel offers guests picturesque vistas, while walking down to the hub will bring with it a number of eateries, cafés and bars.
The location of the town means it’s an ideal place to stay for those wanting to explore other parts of Malta too. Destinations that can be easily reached via car include Casa Bernard, a Maltese palace which was built in the 16th century, Esplora, a science museum big on interactive displays and exhibits, and Fort Rinella, Malta’s only historic fort that’s open to the public. Outside of these attractions, guests can drive to capital Valletta in 35 minutes, major city Rabat in 25, and the beautiful Golden Bay Beach in just 15.
