Hotel San Pawl


Hotel San Pawl is located in the town of St. Paul’s Bay, to the North of Malta. The comfortable and friendly hotel offers several dining services. Guests have access to many delicious food offerings at our many eateries. From the various Maltese specialities of our Main Restaurant to the delicious pizzas at the Pizzeria Grill House eatery. Hotel San Pawl has many recreation facilities within ist grounds. These include a refreshing outdoor pool with extensive sun terraces as well as our indoor pool (heated in winter) and a small fitness room available for our more health-centric guests.

Once a small fishing village, St. Paul’s Bay is now a popular resort-town that boasts a more relaxed atmosphere than some of its livelier neighbours. As a result, St. Paul’s Bay has managed to keep more of that small Maltese village feel that many no longer have.

Hotel San Pawl is located within close proximity to many of the town’s attractions. Restaurants and coffee shops are within a short walking distance from the hotel. The town’s popular beaches are also just a few 100 meters from the hotel. From the town you can also admire St. Paul’s Island. The latter is the site where St. Paul, the Apostle, allegedly landed after a shipwreck and from where Christianity was introduced to Malta. Travelers can also enjoy several active offerings in St. Paul’s Bay including various water based-activities and the long coastal scenic walk from St. Paul’s Bay to neighbouring Qawra.
