With its unique location at the heart of the Mediterranean, surrounded by deep blue waters and bathed in over 300 days of sunshine each year, Malta is quickly becoming one of Europe’s most popular wedding and honeymoon destinations. The island is easy to get to with direct flights from Dublin, Cork and Belfast. But it is more than just its location that makes Malta a chosen destination for weddings.
With its expansive 7.5-acre garden overlooking the Marsamxett Harbour and the Island’s skyline, The Phoenicia Malta stands out as one of the island’s most stunning wedding venues. The hotel itself is an architectural icon, steeped in a history that makes it part of the very fabric of the old city of Valletta. It has a combination of both indoor and outdoor venues that vary from the intimate to the more grandiose.
Inside is the Grand Ballroom where Her Majesty the Queen and Prince Philip once spent their evenings dancing together – the perfect setting to a fairytale romance. With its more understated grandeur is the Rotunda, set around an original art deco fountain among acres of landscaped gardens. A walk through the Phoenicia’s gardens leads to the secluded Gazebo located against Valletta’s medieval fortified walls with stunning sea views over Marsamxett Harbour. Cross the little stone bridge at the edge of the gardens and happen upon the Bastion Pool, with the most spectacular sea views from across the large pool deck.
The Phoenicia also offers a range of wedding packages, providing couples the option of a professional wedding team to take care of all the details, including flowers, catering and music.
Thanks to its extensive history, The Phoenicia offers its guests not only a considerable choice of menus and set-ups, but also the finest standard of service as endorsed by being Malta’s only member of The Leading Hotels of the World. The banqueting team work in tandem with the kitchen brigade to create the most memorable moments, mixing delicious food and service with chosen entertainment and professional set-ups.
There are very few venues in Malta which offer the character, individuality and flexibility that The Phoenicia’s extensive range of superb amenities, venues and gardens provide.
