Mediterranean Magic

Ibiza undoubtedly has a lot to offer its visitors from it world famous nightlife to the quiet, historic Ibiza that remains a favourite for a whole different kind of holiday maker. But we started to ask ourselves what else the Mediterranean has to offer?

So, if you want to try something a little bit different here are 3 of the best hotels that we have found around the Mediterranean, enjoy.


Anyone looking for a luxury holiday with beautiful weather and unmistakeable charm should definitely consider Sicily. The Island is blessed with a number of great locations but the incredible Taormina is always popular with its dramatic scenery and, of course, excellent hotels. One of our favourites is the Belmond Villa Sant’Andrea.

With luxury suites, heated pool and views that would not look out of place in a Hollywood film, this hotel is definitely worth every penny.



With almost 2,000km of Mediterranean coastline, Sardinia is popular with tourists year round. The second largest autonomous region of Italy behind Sicily, Sardinia is blessed with a beauty that you would find difficult to find anywhere else.

One of our favourite hotels here is the Five Star ‘Hotel Cala Di Volpe’ which was designed by the architect Jacques Couelle. The location is excellent, offering wonderful views of Costa Smeralda and the Olympic sized salt water pool is enough to keep any water lovers happy.



The islands of Malta and Gozo are absolutely perfect for any kind of holiday maker from singles to couples and families. You can enjoy the city life of Valetta or enjoy the excellent beaches that surround the islands, soak up some of the rich history or enjoy an active trip incorporating all the great waters sports trips available.

We managed to find a site dedicated to offering the best holiday options in Malta and Gozo at great prices in, and focusing on just this area we found some great 5 star options including our favourite at Valletta’s Grand Hotel Excelsior.

The hotel comes packed with everything you would expect of a 5 Star hotel in Malta including a sauna, spa, fitness room, gym, business centre and more and with 5 great restaurants and cafes you will not be struggling to find some great dining or handy snack.
