Book now (price from £36.44)

Address: 39 Main Street, Balluta Bay, Saint Julian's, STJ 1017, Malta

Star rating:
5 star hotel

4.5

Big modern five-star hotel overlooking the bay of Saint Julian’s.

Perched above Balluta Bay in Saint Julian’s, the Meridien offers some of the best views of the bay as well as the sea – largely because they exclude the hotel!  The interior is attractive and well-designed with excellent facilities and, though large, is not as vast or impersonal as the biggest chain hotels.

Location

In the main upmarket tourist area of the island, Saint Julian’s, surrounded by other hotels and restaurants and a few minutes walk from the restaurants and nightclubs of Paceville. This is a built-up area, although it is just possible (mostly at night) to discern the fishing village it once was. Well served by buses, and the shops, bars and restaurants here stay open much later than in other parts of Malta.

Bedrooms

Spacious and fresh with tiled floors. All have a balcony or terrace – though ask for an upper floor or sea view room if you really want to enjoy them. Spacious bathrooms with (unusually) a separate WC.

Public areas

Contemporary design and very spacious with plenty of comfortable places to sit – inside and out - and free WiFi hotspots.

 

Eating and drinking

The hotel’s two main restaurants are both highly regarded by locals and have very different settings. The Villa Brasserie, serving modern French and Mediterranean cuisine, is in a nineteenth-century villa in front of the modern hotel with a striking, dark interior and outside terrace overlooking the bay. The Scirocco restaurant is the contemporary buffet restaurant in the main hotel building. There is also a grill by the pool in summer.

Leisure facilities

Full spa facilities and gym along with a large indoor pool beneath a high ceiling supported by vast classical columns. Rooftop outdoor pool (in summer) as well as a children’s pool (also summer only) and a small kids playground.

Service

Generally efficient and helpful.

Who stays there

Business people and tourists, some families.
