We got through the indulgent Christmas season - with all its family events - and even the first month of the year. And now it's time for a break, no? Here are six hotels to choose from for a perfectly cosy winter weekend getaway!

1. Hugo’s Boutique Hotel 

In the heart of Malta’s party-town, Paceville, you will find the lavish Hugo’s Boutique Hotel. Part of the franchise belonging to the late Hugo Chetcuti, the grand hotel is nothing short of fantastic. The soundproof rooms are furnished with a touch of the contemporary, with some rooms even boasting jacuzzis! You’ll feel like a true king or queen when staying at Hugo’s.

2. Casa Gemelli 

Casa Gemelli is a little guesthouse situated in the heart of Victoria (Gozo) between the two theatres, Aurora and Astra. The guesthouse is run by twin sisters, Anna and Sonia, who embody the essence of Gozitan hospitality as enshrined in the friendly, personalised service of this family-run business. With various rooms possessing prime views of the Cittadella and breakfast which is absolutely divine, Casa Gemelli is definitely an option for your weekend stay!

3. Hilton Malta 

The newly-renovated five-star hotel has a reputation that precedes itself. Gorgeous, modern and contemporary rooms are just waiting for you at the Hilton! Take a sip of champagne at the stunning Quarterdeck Bar before heading down to a buffet dinner at Oceana. Need to destress? Head down to Myoka’s 5 Senses Spa for a full body massage that will rub your worries away.

4. The Westin Dragonara Resort Malta 

The Westin seems to be a fortress, perched on a private peninsula just outside Paceville. With a beautiful archway as one of its entrances, this hotel welcomes you warmly to a luxurious stay. Cosy up with a hot cup of coffee at ORVM Lounge and Piano Bar which will make you feel as if you're on a movie set in Paris! Want to try your luck? Head on down to Malta’s historic casino just a stone’s throw away from the resort.

Overlooking one of Malta’s golden beaches, Radisson Blu is nothing if not the bomb! With breath-taking views of the Mediterranean Sea, the spacious rooms will definitely be the right fit for your weekend stay. Indulge in the Mediterranean breakfast on offer which is absolutely to die for, and if you’re lucky, soak up some sun by the pool.
