A Romantic Getaway in Valletta

...Why you should stay at Casa Ellul boutique hotel?

A romantic getaway in any city starts with the hotel: a bad experience at your hotel of choice will certainly kill any romance. Therefore, if you’re planning a romantic getaway in Valletta, Casa Ellul should be your go-to boutique hotel. Here’s why. 

Victorian-era palazzo

Casa Ellul is housed in a Victorian-era palazzo that dates back to the early 19th century. The exact construction start date is unknown. However, historians suggest that it was sometime around 1830 – when a previous Knights-era building was demolished to make way for a group of houses. 

Casa Ellul features early Victorian characteristics: it’s aesthetically pleasing – with ornamentation in the form of graceful wrought ironwork, subtle panelling and floral motifs. It also enjoys plenty of natural light and galleriji aplenty (the Maltese version of the sliding sash and canted bay windows). 

Individually-designed suites

Each suite has been individually designed and has furnishings that have been carefully selected for that particular suite. For example – suite 3 has a custom-made wallpaper depicting a Maltese landscape; suite 6 is the epitome of minimalist interior design, while suite 2 is quasi-Parisian in style. 

Suite 7 stands out from the rest of the suites by having a private terrace and jacuzzi. Moreover, suite 7 guests can enjoy excellent viewpoints of Valletta’s rooftops, Marsamxett Harbour and the Carmelite Church while enjoying a glass of bubbly in the terrace’s jacuzzi.

And what about the bath tubs in suites 2 and 5? These suites have a free-standing, Hidrobox bathtub, which maintains the water temperature throughout providing maximum comfort to the guests, whilst transforming bathing into a luxurious experience. 

Views of the Carmelite Church

The Carmelite Church is one of Valletta’s main tourist attractions and is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

History buffs will be pleased to learn that the majority of the suites offer an unparalleled view of the Carmelite Church. This means that you can enjoy views of the majestic Carmelite from the comfort of your bath or bed.

Sophisticated guest services 

Casa Ellul takes pride in its exceptional guest services. These include a 24-hour front desk, in-suite spa treatment, daily housekeeping (included in the room rate) as well as a private bathroom in each room. In addition to all of these services, Casa Ellul has a breakfast room – with breakfast served daily between 7 am and 10.30 am. 

In-suite spa treatments

Fancy a deep tissue massage or manicure – but don’t want to leave your suite? Worry not, as Casa Ellul offers in-suite spa treatments. Yes, you heard that one right! Choose from a range of massages that include classics such as aromatherapy massage and more bespoke ones such as the La Prairie platinum facial. 

Valletta is a romantic city in itself

Forget Paris – Valletta is one of Europe’s most understated romantic cities. Take your lover’s hand and throw caution to the wind by spending a weekend exploring the city’s hidden nooks and crannies. 

Plenty of romantic restaurants to choose from

Casa Ellul is just a stone’s throw away from Valletta’s main attractions and top restaurants. If you and your partner are self-confessed foodies, then you’ll definitely enjoy the city, as it’s Malta’s gastro hub. Here, you can find every type of eatery under the sun.
