LABRANDA Riviera Resort & Spa


The newly refurbished LABRANDA Riviera Premium Resort & Spa is located in one of the best-preserved areas of northern Malta. The large hotel overlooks the scenic Marfa Bay and sits next to our private Hola Beach Club with majestic date palms. The islands of Comino and Gozo are visible from the property across a blue shimmering channel, creating an idyllic atmosphere of relaxation and island fun.

As a guest of LABRANDA Riviera Premium Resort & Spa you will have access to a wide range of amenities. Including, 3 outdoor swimming pools, a heated indoor seawater pool and a full-service spa center. At our spa, guests can choose from a wide range of therapy and beauty treatments. True relaxation, however, requires a holistic approach. It is more than just laying by a body of water or getting a massage. Enjoying superior food is an important part of a comforting and rejuvenating vacation. The ability to indulge on an appetizingly crafted restaurant quality meal, or tasty snack poolside, is among the most important experiences for guests of a select resort. Therefore, the Riviera does its best to offer a wide array of world-class restaurants, as well as bars for its demanding clientele.

LABRANDA Riviera Premium Resort & Spa is located in Mellieha, a popular town with travelers in Malta. This large village offers visitors a nice mix of experiences, from your idyllic sandy beaches and delicious seaside restaurants, to several historical sites. The latter include Saint Agatha’s Tower, the Church of our Lady Victory, and the Mellieha WWII air-raid shelters.

Finally, LABRANDA Riviera Premium Resort & Spa also provides more adventure seeking guests with the ability to take part in various watersports & scuba diving activities, making it the perfect destination for travelers who are looking to have a diverse choice of vacation activities, while on a Mediterranean holiday.
