AX The Palace 

Relax in regal style

This lavish hotel has a fantastic central location in Sliema.

AX The Palace is an elegant hotel in the heart of Sliema, with intricate chandeliers and plenty of art adorning the walls. Its superb location means you’re just a few minutes’ walk from both the seafront and the main shopping centre. Mornings start with a wholesome breakfast at The Tabloid. Then make your way up to the rooftop where sun loungers line the infinity pool with views of the city and the sea beyond. The pool bar is just steps away and the top floor of the hotel is entirely dedicated to leisure facilities including a spa and fitness room.

Why we love AX The Palace

  • It has a superb rooftop infinity pool with far-reaching city views and a bar so you don’t need to stray too far from your lounger

  • It’s conveniently located within walking distance of Sliema waterfront and the restaurants and bars of St Julian’s

  • The excellent spa has a menu of classic and Ayurvedic treatments, including reflex foot massages and relaxing facials

  • There’s a continent of Asian flavours at the hotel’s stylish rooftop restaurant, from poke bowls to teppanyaki dishes
