Bring in the New Year at Malta’s Phoenicia Hotel, where Brad Pitt was spotted twice over the summer as he dined in the hotel’s award-winning restaurant, and you’re sure to feel like a star. Packages for two adults start from just £715* including three nights’ accommodation with daily breakfast, a lavish gala dinner on the big night and return airport transfers.

With direct flights to Malta from a host of UK departure airports, it’s easy to create an affordable luxury escape, and with a car waiting to collect you from Malta International Airport, just 20 minutes’ drive from the hotel, you’ll feel like a VIP from the moment you arrive**.

Marketing director Clive Cordina comments; “The Phoenicia is very popular with British guests so visitors are certain to feel at home during the New Year celebrations, whilst also enjoying Malta’s unique Mediterranean charm.”

The gala dinner is a black tie affair and will take place in the sumptuous Phoenix Restaurant. Guests will savour a feast of fusion food devised by renowned head chef Bernd Maier. The Champagne reception is followed by a seven-course dinner, which includes creations such as a starter of smoked tataki of tuna with ginger caviar, avocado and lime ice cream on wakame salad, a truffled cream soup of sweet corn with poached quail egg and gamberi rossi, plus a main course of mille feuille of beef fillet and foie gras with blue potato, asparagus and mushroom on hot apple jelly with sherry sauce. After dinner, guests can return to the Palm Court Lounge for entertainment from a leading Maltese band as they prepare for the countdown.

And on New Year’s Day, with the capital of Valletta just a few minutes’ walk from the hotel, you can clear your head with a sunny stroll along the promenade of this magnificent waterfront, which dates back 250 years and has been beautifully restored.
