About QAWRA Palace Resort & SPA
The Qawra Palace Hotel is a 4 star family-run hotel located in the village of Qawra, on the northern coast of Malta. This quiet resort town allows you to focus on a restful and relaxing holiday. The hotel’s sun terrace and large pool are perched directly on the waterfront providing views over Salina Bay and out to the Mediterranean while you relax on a sun lounger. The poolside facilities, a pizzeria, bar and gelateria, mean you barely need to move from your spot by the pool for a cocktail or a bite to eat.
Offering stays on a bed and breakfast through to a full board basis, you can take advantage of the hotel’s various food offerings. However being centrally located in Qawra, the hotel is close to a range of local shops, restaurants and bars with several British pub themed bars for a small taste of home.
Who Is It Great for?
Guests who’ve stayed at the Qawra Palace Hotel recommend it for couples, with the hotel’s location and the views from the sea view rooms being noted as major positives. The onsite coffee lounge also received high marks.

Local Area and Things to Do
The waterfront opposite the hotel is a rocky shoreline, which is nevertheless great for swimming and a renowned snorkelling spot. Just 200 m north of the hotel is a public beach, Ta Fra Ben, with sun loungers for hire and a beach bar on hand for a cooling cocktail. If sand is a must, the Buġibba beach is 750 m from the hotel, and the famous Golden Bay is 9 km away.
A visit to the adjacent village of St Paul’s Bay is a big attraction for history buffs to visit Wignacourt Tower, a defensive structure built by the Knights Hospitaller in 1610. The harbour is the starting point for boat tours to the nearby island of Gozo, and Comino’s famous Blue Lagoon.
