Make the most of Malta’s carnival

25th January 2011 Print

Immerse yourself in Malta's ancient carnival while staying at the luxurious five-star Phoenicia Hotel, set by the bastions of Valletta.

Dating back to the 16th century, this wonderful five-day celebration takes place from 4th March in a number of towns and villages around the island and is a must-see for visitors. Watch the beautiful floats go by and get swept away by the atmosphere of this very authentic Maltese festival, enjoying fantastic food and hospitality.

Explore the different towns and villages taking part in the celebrations with a complimentary three-day car hire currently available through the Phoenicia Hotel. This fantastic offer gives guests the chance to go off and explore this historic island at their own pace, and there couldn't be a better time than during Carnival!

After a day exploring, relax and soak up some sun on the hotel's Bastion pool deck, set into the city walls, and enjoy a meal at the award-winning Phoenix Restaurant before taking an evening stroll into Valletta to see more of the celebrations.

Guests can enjoy five-star luxury including the three days car hire for just £68 per person per night, based on two sharing a classic plus room with breakfast. For more information or to book, visit:
