A Maltese institution The Phoenicia dates back to 1939 and is considered the country’s most majestic hotel. Situated by the gates of the historic capital Valetta it’s a five star retreat close to the harbour where you’ll experience Maltese hospitality at its finest. There are seven spaces within the hotel in which to wed; the most romantic of which is an alfresco gazebo set amidst seven acres of exquisite gardens beside the hotel’s swimming pool offering magnificent sea views all around.
That’s the wow factor taken care of…what about the essentials? Worry not, the hotel’s Wedding Planner looks after every aspect of your Big Day which is made even easier by the special packages they offer. Their A Day To Remember package costs £5015 for up to 30 guests and includes full coordinator services with preparation of all documents and fees, dressed seating, mandolin player or classical pianist, sparkling wine with canapés, three-course meal with wine, DJ, flowers, wedding cake, bouquets for the bride and bridesmaid, photographer, bridal make-up, personalised menu cards and much more – all you need to do is turn up. If you’re after a bigger wedding abroad then the hotel does accommodate larger parties and can offer a range of lavishly decorated rooms which can be used for all aspects of your celebrations.
Honeymoon wise, if you’re marrying at The Phoenicia the hotel has special rates for couples. There are eight luxury suites ideal for honeymooners who are pampered throughout their stay. With champagne and chocolates on arrival and fabulous facilities to enjoy, you’ll soon feel in your element. One of the hotel’s biggest attractions is its fine dining cuisine, created under the artistry of Executive Chef Saul Haveli. He doesn’t just prepare delicious food, he also oversees the hotel’s gardens where much of the vegetables are grown organically – an aspect you’ll also be able to savour as part of your wedding breakfast if you do choose to marry at and stay here.
Aside from losing yourself in the decadence of the hotel (wait until you try the bespoke cocktails served up in the Blue Bar and have tasted the fresh fish served at The Pegasus Restaurant), the hotel will arrange pre-wedding photoshoots at some of Malta’s most picturesque locations such as Mdina or the Three Cities followed by a honeymoon trip in privacy on a luxury yacht visiting the Maltese islands which are considered some of the most romantic spots in the Mediterranean.
