Victor dropped Damien and I off at Mdina so he could swing by his boss’ house for a job. It was still raining, so naturally we headed indoors. It just so happened that indoors was Fontanella Tea Rooms…which inevitably lead to cakes and milkshakes!

It looks extremely challenging and a little daunting (especially the 20,000 word dissertation at the end!) but ultimately 2015 would be the best time to do it and opens doors for me.

It is now Saturday and we came through the Suez Canal again yesterday without incidence. We had a couple of helicopters checking us out and two tug boats followed us all the way through. It is still an amazing feat of engineering and saves thousands of sea miles for the traffic that uses it.

Another day spent atop an open top bus seeing the sights of Malta. We're getting so used to travelling without a roof it may be that when we get home we may have to take to our cars with a saw. But it is a great way of getting around. Today saw us travelling across the island to the ancient fortress towns of Mdina and Rabat. These really are very old - Rabat was taken over and re-built by the Romans- such is ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Juliani Saint Julian's
My husband and I stayed in the Hotel Juliani for 3 days on a last-minute short holiday. The hotel has a modern decor, with everything done up in grey/black and turquoise and with green glass tables. We stayed in a suite, because nothing else was available, but it was well worth it: a big room with a balcony overlooking the sea, a jacuzzi and two televisions. The hotel has a garage - an asset for people with a car, as itīs hard to find a parking spot in the area. The most attractive feature is the roof-top terrace with pool, serving good middle of the road food with a beautiful view over the bay. Staff were polite and helpful, and breakfast ample. I would stay there again.
My husband and I struck gold on our first visit to Malta
-we stayed at the Hotel Juliani! We have nothing but praise for every aspect of the hotel.The location was excellent -the decor and facilities first class and the service courteous,efficient and warm.
We thoroughly enjoyed the food which deserves the plaudits received.
We will definitely be returning to the hotel and have no hesitation in recommending it as a wonderful place to have a relaxing holiday.
Juliani, Great Service, Location, Food
We arrived at Juliani in the early hours and were greeted from beginning to end with what I can only describe as amazing service. We initially were only booked for 2 nights but added a first night with an extra person. Although we booked into a cheaper room they gave us the Junior sweet for no extra charge.
We sat on our balcony over looking the most picturesque bay whilst the sun shone at night and a cool breeze blew during the amazing evenings.
Some friends joined us on the second night and having got the dates of the booking completely wrong, the hotel sat all down, provided a local aperitif and gave them another suite for the price of the cheapeast room- this was despite it being our faults. We could not fault this amazing service.
We ate the first eveninga at Meze, which is on the rooftop under the stars during the summer. We had a wonderful set of varied seafood with 3 courses, wine and coffee for around 40 euros each. Given the quality of the food and amount wine we consumed we were very impressed. Stunning meal and stunning views.
Second night we look around locally but deciced on the Zest restaurant (also part of Juliani) this asian fusion cuisine was superb. I recommend the quail with mango, the yellow prawn curry and the red snapper in banana I lleaf. Truly some of the best and freshest food i have ever eaten.
The room was of good size with very nice bathroom and was immaculately clean. Every approach to the front desk led to a response without fault. We booked a car and got the same rates as if we went down to the rental agency ourselves (I checked).
The breakfasts were delicious but simple with a great choice of freshly squeezed juices, the most superb espresso and machiato ... generally everything was of a high standard.
Location wise is very nice, just far enough away from the St Julians nightlife but a 5 - 10 min walk. We hired a car to drive around the island which we really found no problems at all despite people chatting about how bad the maltese drivers are.
All in all this place made it a perfect trip and really stamped its mark on us all. I would never hesitate to recommend this hotel.
Wonderful birthday present
Took my partner to the'Juliani' for her 50th birthday earlier this month. Booked a Junior Suite but was upgraded to the Ambassador Suite. This was superb and the view over Spinola Bay is great. I highly recommend you spend a bit more and book a front facing room. The food and service in the 'Zest' restauarnt was first class. Did not visit the 'Meze' restaurant as intended but it was clearly very well known. We had a hire car but nevertheless it is very well placed for buses to Selima/Valetta etc. The bay also seems to be the culinary centre of the island. In summary a Boutique Hotel that I highly recommend.
Wonderful boutique hotel
Stayed here for a week in a junior suite during low season. It is truly a wonderful gem of a hotel, with fabulous views of the little harbor-bay with colorful fishing boats and 2 fantastic restaurants. The hotel staff speaks English well and is super friendly. The bus to town stops right in front of the hotel, so every destination is easy to get to. Even the breakfast buffet was delicious. It is worthwhile to spend a bit more for a front-facing room with a view and a terrace. I've stayed at a lot of hotels for business / pleasure, and I would not hesitate to recommend Hotel Juliani highly.
Gastronomic experts are at work
The Hotel Juliani, including the in-house restaurants, provides hospitality at its finest and is among the best that Malta tourism has to offer.
I have had my friends stay at the hotel and been a guest at the restaurants countless times.
I have also organized a large corporate function together with the Julianis most professional management.
The location is breathtaking overlooking serene Mediterranean scenery.
Especially I would like to point out the in-house Restaurant -Zest - offering a mix of Asian and Continental fine food that has your taste buds loving you for eating there.
There is no better place, to relax before dinner while taking in the view of the balcony of the restaurant while sipping your aperitif, awaiting simply amazing food.

As a frequent business traveller, I have very high expectations from the establishments i stay in, that's why I found this diamond in the ruff of a hotel delightful! Firstly the rooms are exquisite in their design and the beds heavenly comfortable, I recommend the Deluxe suite overlooking the St Julian's bay, gorgeous view! Secondly, all three bistro/restaurants in the hotel are ranked as the best of their class in Malta and let me tell you... they are amazing, from sushi at Zest to kebabs at Mezze and a latte at the cafe! Thirdly, the staff and management are extremely helpful and accomodating which makes the difference between this smaller more charming & intimate hotel vs. the big chains. Lastly but not least, although it is considered a Boutique hotel, this boutique hotel catered to my every business need from fast internet access in my room to a conference facility. Overall, this boutique hotel carries a big punch and distinguishes itself from the pack, i highly recommend it! Georges B. Dubai, UAE
Hotel Juliani is a great boutique hotel that we would highly recommend. The rooms are nice, the restaurants are excellent and the staff was helpful. We really enjoyed our stay there. No complaints at all.
Just keep in mind that if you want a large pool or swimming area connected to your hotel, this is not the place for you. But it is excellent for touring around Malta and you can always find a place for a swim in Malta.
Delightful and Personal
A delightful boutique hotel with a spectacular view of St Julians Bay. My wife and I stayed in a very comfortable and very clean room overlooking the bay. The view in the morning is simply spectacular. Most important of all however is the attention to detail by a very friendly staff. We dined in all three restaurants. All different but all very good. Highly recommended in our opinion.
Boutique hotel with views over Spinola Bay, St Julians
The Juliani is a modern luxurious boutique hotel that was once a seafront town house. It is described as, "A showcase of modern eye-catching design and decor, comfort, style, and service. The description is truly accurate of a well run hotel. The attention to detail by the owner is a feature that is recognised throughout the hotel. My wife and I stayed here for a week at the beginning of Sepember in a deluxe suite with spectacular views over the bay. The friendliness and helpfulness from all the staff can be credited to the example being set by Erika who owns this delighlful hotel.
The Juliani boasts three restaurants featuring a world of cusines from the Mediterranean through to Japanese and Thai. We dined in all of these and the food was truly magnificent.
If you are looking for a small luxurious hotel which has 44 deluxe rooms of which 11 are suites and offers 5 star service, the Hotel Juliani should be given serious consideration.
