Corinthia Palace Malta

Classic Roman architecture and modern amenities

Located in the upscale neighborhood of Attard in the center of Malta, Corinthia Palace Malta was originally a regal villa built for the island’s chief justice. Glide up the stairs past the grand columns into the palatial lobby, where you’ll be welcomed with a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice — a nod to the Maltese orange trees throughout the hotel’s lush gardens.

Like a set from the 1960 movie La Dolce Vita, the Corinthia brand’s first hotel — with 147 rooms, including nine suites, six Executive Suites and two Palace Suites — is a place for those who enjoy classic architecture, traditional decor, formal service and culinary excellence.

Speaking of gastronomic adventures, the hotel welcomed renowned chef Francesco Mazzei to Villa Corinthia in 2023, which propelled the restaurant to a top culinary destination, serving authentic Italian classics. Above Villa Corinthia sits Bahia, a space offering three unique menus that transport you to different time periods. Another one of the hotel’s premier dining experiences is Rickshaw, where you can dine under the stars and relish the flavors of the Far East.

Aside from the restaurants, there are other spots in the hotel to check out. Unwind in the expansive pools. Or indulge in some well-deserved pampering at the luxury hotel’s Mediterranean-inspired spa, Athenaeum, featuring a garden plunge pool, sauna, heated beds, experience showers and more.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Surrounded by verdant gardens, the split-level outdoor pool is an oasis. Every room comes with a spacious balcony and most overlook the gorgeous, formal English gardens.
  • Because of its central location on the island, this Malta hotel is well-situated if you plan on exploring many different attractions and towns. It’s roughly a 15-minute drive away from Valletta and equidistant to Mdina, the medieval city. It’s also quiet, away from the crowds on the coast.
  • Athenaeum is a spa to visit — it’s a wonderment of wellness with a clean, Zen design. Treatments use everything from Maltese aromatherapy to ESPA products. Make it a spa day by reserving the adults-only Vitality Suite and adding on one of the Vitality Experience menus with nibbles and drinks.
  • The property has beautiful architecture with an Italianate structure and a Corinthian columned entrance. Originally built as the private residence for a prominent Maltese citizen, today it offers all-day dining and space for events. 
  • Impressing in the kitchen since he was 14, chef Mazzei brings a wealth of epicurean experience to Villa Corinthia. Be it with hand-cut tagliolini or just-caught black cod, Mazzei’s mission is to cook up memorable meals every night.

  • Helmed by the talented chef Tyrone Mizzi, Bahia sets forth an imaginative Maltese dining experience. An art-like centerpiece with metal tubes on the table is actually the menu: choose the corresponding metal for the Past, Future or Present. The seven-course Past degustation offers a taste of Maltese history, while the multi-course Future reinterprets classic local dishes with a modern edge. The Present menu reveals the à la carte offerings.
