I Bet This Is The Best Boutique Hotel In Valletta

Casa Ellul take comfort seriously, it is not a game to them

Working in the gaming industry is pretty tough. The competition is stiff, the stakes are high and the hours are long.

Players from around the world are online at all hours, regulation is tight and the team is young, multicultural and hungry for success.

Sometimes, I just need to get away from the office, though the opportunity doesn’t easily present itself to be offline, so taking the water taxi from Sliema front across the Marsamxett harbour to Valletta gives me the separation I need and what better skyline to make you feel you are somewhere special, and a world away from my computer screen.

A short hop up to the city takes me to Casa Ellul, a small and truly luxury boutique hotel in the centre of Valletta which I discovered a few months ago, having used it for VIP guests to stay in for a casino tournament. I have to admit I got a bit jealous and decided to make it home for my next city break.

Now although this is my third visit, I still get treated like a VIP, still get a buzz when I have a new suite to discover and I try new restaurants and go to the theatre or bar to round off the weekend.

Now it’s time to switch off my PC, switch off my brain and switch on my hot tub. Please, excuse me.
