With Valentine’s Day soon upon us, it’s time to consider how to make your loved one feel extra special this February 14th.

Beyond the traditional sending of roses, chocolates, or a greetings card to your sweetheart, how about whisking them away to a romantic mini-break this year?

Here’s why Malta is the ultimate place to be, for this festival of lovers.

Stay in a Luxury 5-star Hotel

Imagine the scene: the sun beams into your suite in the morning, and chocolate, flowers and breakfast in bed is delivered to you, for you both to enjoy on your private balcony, overlooking a sandy beach and the crystal clear blue sea. The Radisson Blu St Julian’s in Malta can help you create this idyllic setting for a truly one-of-a-kind Valentine’s gift.

Relax Together at the Spa

With the Marion Mizzi Wellbeing Spa a part of the Radisson Blu St Julian’s, all you need do is wander down from your suite to indulge in some romantic pampering together. To make the most of your Valentine’s mini-break, why not pre-book a Couple Duet Treatment, where you can both enjoy a relaxing massage side-by-side in the specially-designed encirclement suite.

Spend an Evening in the Capital

When it comes to the perfect city for a date night, there are few in the world that can compare with Valletta. Steeped in beautiful architecture, the pedestrian-friendly streets are filled with high-end restaurants, quirky bistros, and elegant wine bars, so it’s easy to take in an intimate meal for two. Complete your evening together by sipping a cocktail, whilst taking in the glorious views across the famous Grand Harbour.

Sunset, Sea and Sand

There are few countries that, in February, can offer you a balmy evening on a sandy beach as a Valentine’s Day option. But Malta (probably) can! With an average of more than 300 days of sunshine per year, there’s a good chance the weather will be favourable for a starry-eyed stroll along one of the island’s many sandy beaches, before watching an exquisite sunset on the sea-lined horizon.

A Dining Experience from the Heart

Whether dining al fresco under the stars or inside by candlelight, in Malta you are guaranteed a romantic fine-dining experience that will complete your Valentine’s Day with your loved one. With many restaurants offering a special set-menu for the occasion, there is something to fit both your palette and your needs (a proposal, perhaps?). Celebrate an unforgettable meal at Le Bistro in St. Julian’s, for a which offers exceptional Mediterranean cuisine as well as an extensive wine list, so you can be sure to raise a toast to the next chapter of your love story, in style here in Malta.
