Jubilee holidays at the majestic Phoenicia Hotel in Malta
If you want to make the most of the Jubilee holiday period but don’t want to miss the sense of celebration, then book a break at the historic Phoenicia Hotel in Malta which has a longstanding connection with our Queen. As a newlywed Princess Elizabeth, she danced in the hotel’s Grand Ballroom during her time on the island, and has returned on several occasions over the years since.
Malta is expected to be a popular destination with the 15 million holidaymakers planning to take advantage of the long break, and with its British heritage combined with the Mediterranean climate, it’s an ideal choice. The Phoenicia Hotel sits by the bastions of the capital, Valletta; a UNESCO World Heritage City which boasts breathtaking architecture, a charming waterfront and a thriving cafe culture.
To celebrate the Diamond Jubilee, the Phoenicia Hotel is offering a three night package, valid for travel between 2nd to 6th June 2012, which includes accommodation in a classic double room on a bed and breakfast basis, a three-course dinner with wine in the Phoenix Restaurant on the first evening and a Moet Champagne afternoon tea in the regal Palm Court Lounge – the perfect chance to raise a glass to Her Majesty. Return taxi transfers are also included, with price per person sharing just £292*.
Fly to Malta for the Jubilee weekend from a wide choice of UK departure airports, with prices from £222.98 return**.
For those wishing to stay on a little longer, the acclaimed Ghanafest music festival commences on 8th June at the Argotti Botanical Gardens in nearby Floriana. Visitors can enjoy traditional Maltese ‘ghana’ or folk song, as well as music from Morocco, Greece and Spain, as renowned musicians gather to play at this three-day family-friendly event.
