Situated in the small town of Mellieha, the Solana Hotel and Spa is close to Malta’s largest Blue Flag beach. The hotel offers a great base for exploring the Maltese islands, with its modern accommodation, varied dining options and panoramic rooftop pool. Plus, there’s a fitness centre and a calming spa, complete with an indoor heated pool.

Solana Hotel and Spa lies in the centre of Mellieha town, just over a mile from Malta’s largest sandy beach, Ghadira Bay. There are restaurants and shops in the immediate vicinity, and the historical chapel of Our Lady of the Grotto is just 350 metres away. For family fun, take a two-mile trip to Popeye Village theme park, or head to the Cirkewwa Ferry Terminal (less than four miles from the hotel) to visit the beautiful sister islands of Gozo and Comino. Valletta, Malta’s capital, and Malta International Airport are both about 14 miles away.

The accommodation comprises a selection of rooms, suites and studios. All are decorated in a contemporary style, and standard amenities include individually controlled central heating and air-conditioning, tea and coffee making amenities, a minibar and complimentary Wi-Fi. Luxury Suites are located on the highest floors and offer a large private terrace. Self-caterers may prefer to stay in a Studio Apartment or Junior Suite, both of which come with a kitchenette, as well as a private balcony or terrace.

Comfortable loungers encircle this pool, and there’s a star light ceiling, which helps create a calming ambience. Nataraya Spa tempts guests with a menu of therapeutic treatments and boasts a chromotherapy hydro bath, harmonious treatment rooms, a serene lounge and relaxation gardens.

The hotel has three inviting restaurants and two bars. Bellini Restaurant is a buffet-style venue with indoor seating and an outdoor terrace. They serve full continental and English breakfasts in the morning and themed dinners made with local ingredients during the evening.

The Prickly Pear is a well-lit restaurant, tastefully decorated with Maltese patterned tiles and plush furnishings. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the a la carte dishes are typically inspired by local or Mediterranean cuisine and can be paired with a selection of local craft beers, wines or cocktails. There’s also Tosca Restaurant which opens in the evenings. This restaurant offers an outdoor dining veranda and a varied Mediterranean menu which includes tasty antipasti, fresh salads, handmade pastas, pizzas and seafood specialities.

The Lobby Bar serves light refreshments and hot drinks throughout the day, and pre-dinner cocktails during the evenings. In the warmer seasons, you can also order drinks and snacks at the Top Deck bar, adjacent to the rooftop pool.
