Valletta, Malta

A Stunning Boutique Hotel

A Prime Location For A Spectacular Hotel

INIALA Harbour House is discreetly located within 4 stunningly renovated townhouses, perched atop Valletta’s spectacular St Barbara Bastion – the city’s most-coveted street for its unobstructed Grand Harbour views and location within the city centre. Spacious rooms offer seductive views of the Grand Harbour and the historic Three Cities. INIALA Harbour House has brought an unprecedented level of luxury and experiential travel to the Maltese Islands.

Why we love this!

“From the moment I stepped through the grand entrance, I knew INIALA wasn’t just a hotel; it was an experience waiting to unfold. The lobby, with its blend of contemporary design and historic charm, set the tone for what would be an unforgettable stay.

Let’s talk about the rooms! Mine was a sanctuary of luxury, a cocoon of luxury if you will, that overlooked the sparkling sea. Every morning the sun streamed through the window, and for anyone that knows me, knows that I enjoy nothing more than waking to beautiful views and this view was up there with the best.

What truly set INIALA apart was the people. The staff always with a warm smile and genuine desire to make my stay exceptional, was a welcome bonus.

Now, outside of the hotel was a whole other ‘wow’ moment. The views from the front of the hotel, overlook the Grand Harbour and the historic Three Cities, which are simply breath-taking. The city of Valletta behind the hotel beckons… from the moment you step out on to the cobblestone streets, you feel immersed in the centuries-old charm. This is a city where the modern world meets old world tradition. A really great vibe, with a bustling cafe culture, shopping and history all right on your doorstep. You couldn’t be in a better location!

This luxurious hotel isn’t just a place to stay; it’s the perfect launchpad to discover Malta. It’s hard to convey how much I loved this hotel and certainly want to go back and share with the family. I’m so pleased that I found this hidden gem and would highly recommend when visiting this beautifully surprising island.

Oh and did I mention that it also boasts a Michelin-Star restaurant! ~ Karen
