Sightseeing, honing in on history, tasting local culture and trying new experiences are all good reasons to travel, but sometimes, we just want to get away from it all, sit back and relax! These fabulous resorts in Malta, Gozo and Comino are a one-stop-shop for comfort, entertainment and relaxation... you need nothing more for your holiday to truly unwind and recharge!

Here, we picked some of the best resorts in the north of Malta, Gozo and Comino for you. Surrounded by nature, within reach of the Mediterranean Sea and with myriad facilities including a spa and sports facilities, these luxury resorts have all you could hope for during your retreat.

Gozo

Gozo has already earned a reputation for being the island of retreats. The unspoilt nature and slower pace of life of the islanders ensures this place remains a pristine gem in the Mediterranean.

The hotel includes family rooms that sleep up to four, suites with private jacuzzis, and detached, stone bungalows. Amenities include three restaurants, a bar, an indoor pool and an outdoor pool, a fully equipped spa, a private beach and a beach club.

Comino

You probably can't get further away from it all than by retreating to the tiny island of Comino. The almost uninhabited island has just four residents, a single hotel and a tiny police station.

The Comino Hotel is a seasonal four-star hotel that is open only during the summer months. It is located in San Niklaw Bay, away from the hordes of tourists that visit the Blue Lagoon daily; you'll be able to enjoy that in its pristine state before or after the ferry schedules. The hotel is indeed secluded but you'll be far from bored.

Apart from the island's unspoilt wilderness, its points of interest and its delightful beaches, the hotel offers two private sandy beaches, two large outdoor swimming pools, scuba diving, water sports, tennis, mountain biking and other activities. The hotel offers hotel rooms and private bungalows, and includes several bars and restaurants and a mini-market.

Malta

Malta may have the reputation of being the busier, cosmopolitan island of the lot, but the north retains an abundance of natural environments to relish.
