HOLM Boutique & Spa

A design haven in Malta

Discover a bright, art-filled stay at HOLM Boutique & Spa in the seaside town of St. Julian’s. From candy cane stripes to plant-themed wallpaper to bold pops of primary colors, each of the 29 rooms feels whimsical.

Like the rest of the property, Ikonika Spa feels modern with accents of rich gold paired with textured white surfaces and untraditional, contemporary angles. Go there for an array of soothing treatments, from facials to massages to hand and foot rituals and facilities like a Himalayan pink salt relaxation room and a footbath area.

The hotel serves a complimentary breakfast of fresh fruit, yogurt, pastries and hot dishes in a space with black-and-white geometric flooring and eccentric white chairs sculpted to look like backsides. One of the design highlights is outside: the pink-tiled rooftop pool adds another welcome dose of color.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Each accommodation at the boutique hotel offers a distinct décor theme. The Deluxe Room feels like a modern art piece, the Family Room incorporates nature motifs and the Executive Suite’s gold and blue highlights create a classical space.
  • The infinity pool on the roof offers one of the best views of the surrounding cityscape, distant sea and neighboring valley.
  • Choose one of the signature Ikonika Spa rituals, which include a back massage and access to the foot spa, steam room, ice room, sauna, cold bucket shower experience, destress inhalation lounge, indoor pool, hot tub and fitness center. The ritual promises bodily restoration, detoxification and increased energy. For facials, the spa utilizes products by Elemis, the 30-year-old British skincare company.
  • HOLM sprinkles fun design touches throughout the property, like bust sculptures and white elephants and monkeys serving as lamps, and wallpaper with bold jungle and crest prints.
  • For a special trip, the Deluxe Suite with Outdoor Spa Bath comes with cherry-red and rose-pink accents, a separate sitting room and a terrace with an alfresco hot tub.
