The Xara Palace is a unique 17th century palace hidden away in the medieval fortified city of Mdina, the old capital of Malta.
Perched on centuries-old bastions, surrounded by stunning baroque architecture, The Xara Palace, with its luxurious accommodation and award winning cuisine, is truly a haven in which to pause and be pampered.
Sensitively restored to reflect its former noble standing, the exclusive 5-star boutique hotel boasts seventeen luxury rooms and suites enjoying stunning views, all individually and tastefully designed.
Our promise to our guests is an impeccable attention to detail – from the décor to the serene, unhurried pace of life at The Xara Palace Hotel, through every facet of our service.
The Xara Palace prides itself on its meticulous care of guests. But it doesn’t just reserve this people-centered approach for customers—the hotel also devotes considerable energies to raising funds for charities.
It supports local charity, Dar tal-Providenza, which offers accommodation that can provide a warm and family-oriented environment to people with disabilities who are unable to continue living at home. The hotel makes both direct donations and organizes an annual gala dinner for some 150 guests, held in the piazza directly in front of the palace. The event typically raises over €50,000. The Xara Palace also supports a smaller charity, Sponsor My Future. This raises money to enable underprivileged children in Ruiru, Kenya, to attend school—as well as supporting their families. The hotel creates a dedicated dish on its restaurant menu, which it uses both to raise funds for the charity and promote its work.
