The Island of Sunshine and History
My luxury trip to Malta was a journey through time and indulgence. The island's rich history, including its connection to the Knights of St. John, left me in awe of its remarkable past. Our stay in opulent hotels was complemented by exquisite Michelin-starred dining, offering a culinary experience that was nothing short of extraordinary. Sailing to the neighboring islands allowed us to explore hidden coves and crystal-clear waters, while engaging in traditional crafts and marveling at the captivating architecture. Malta's local wines added a delightful twist to our taste buds, blending unique flavors with each sip. As responsible travelers, we extended our journey by supporting local communities through visits to farms, olive groves, and charming family-owned restaurants. This not only added depth to our adventure but also contributed to sustainability and cultural preservation. In Malta, the perfect synergy of luxury and local engagement made our trip not just memorable but also a positive force for change.
Best time to visit: May, June, September and October
