With its unique architecture and picturesque views, Balluta Bay is captured in a curve of the popular promenade that stretches from St Julian's to Sliema. Balluta is situated on the northeast coast of Malta and is a favourite recreational spot frequented for swimming, diving and water sports. The triangular 'pjazza', features a typical "Gabbana" (a small hut selling snacks and refreshments). Its skyline is dominated by the neo-gothic Carmelite Parish Church and the timeless art nouveau of the Balluta Buildings. Le Méridien St Julians Hotel & Spa is situated on the south shore of Balluta Bay and is nestled on the former grounds that once surrounded the 19th century Villa Cassar Torregiani.
Malta: a Mediterranean gem
The Maltese Archipelago is situated in the heart of the Mediterranean sea, 93km south of Sicily. Malta, the largest inhabited island, Gozo and Comino unfold authentic landscapes characterized by splendid coastlines, clear bays, colourful beaches and inviting coves to explore. Take a 'Karrozzin' ride (a horse drawn carriage) through the ancient capital city, which adopts the preserved medieval nicknamed "The Silent City". Valletta, the Maltese Capital City, embraces a viewpoint worth noticing. Starting from Castille Square, visit St John's Co-Cathedral, the Palace of the Grand Masters and the National Museum, which houses an impressive archaeological collection.
Le Méridien St Julians Hotel & Spa is a great 5 star hotel located across the promenade of St Julians, which stretches up from the well-known night-life city of Paceville to the vibrant shopping center of Sliema. Hidden in the Balluta Bay curve, the property is far from noisy venues, allowing a relaxing environment, yet within walking distance of all centers of interests. Its orchestrated central location makes it the perfect spot to engage in the discovery of the fascinating islands.
Whilst boasting a contemporary style of interior design, the hotel benefits from its authentic cultural whereabouts.
