Kempinski Hotel San Lawrenz 

Soak up the island charm

An elegant old-world retreat on quiet Gozo with an award-winning spa.

You’ll be greeted by the scent of lavender, basil and rosemary from the moment you arrive at this secluded retreat. Wrapped in over 30,000 square metres of garden, this old-world resort is an elegant hideaway on the western side of relaxed Gozo, just a ten-minute drive from the capital, Victoria. 

Why we love Kempinski Hotel San Lawrenz

  • The award-winning spa features heated indoor pools, a Turkish hammam and a dedicated Ayurveda centre

  • It’s a superb get-away-from-it-all spot, with extensive semi-tropical gardens deep in the serene Gozo countryside

  • The food focuses on fresh, organic ingredients, many hand-picked from the hotel’s own fruit and vegetable garden

  • When you want to explore beyond the grounds, the hotel offers a complimentary bus shuttle to Victoria and Ramla beach daily

You can sample everything from typical local dishes to freshly caught seafood al fresco at the resort’s varied dining venues.

L'Ortolan The resort’s buffet restaurant serves up European and Mediterranean dishes for breakfast. Grab a table on the terrace overlooking the pool for that first coffee of the day.

L-Istorja Open for dinner only, this characterful à la carte venue specialises in Maltese and Gozitan cuisine, with signature dishes such as rabbit-filled parsley ravioli.

Il-Baldakkin Bistro & Lounge Open all day for food and drinks, this laid-back spot with views of the pool has a menu of casual favourites from sandwiches to steaks.

Gazebo During the warmer months, you can experience al fresco dining at this charming grill and fish restaurant.

The Pool Bar If you don’t want to wander too far from the water, you can order a refreshing cocktail or snacks at the Pool Bar.

Sitting under the wooden ceiling at L-Istorja, dining on authentic Gozitan specialities, is an experience not to be missed.
