We were really surprised everything was much better than even the lavish descriptions by the agent. It was just fabulous in every way and we enjoyed just hanging around the flat even though everything is nearby- even a very good Indian.
The views are breathtaking and I could spend all day sitting looking at the sea.
Definitely a must if you want a luxurious week doing nothing and recharging your batteries.
Ghallis Tower is absolutely beautiful. The location couldnt be better, everything is in walking distance. Beach, shop, restaurants etc. But who needs restaurants when you live at Ghallis Tower? The apartement is just lovely, bright, clean and perfect for bbq dinners on the terrace with an amazing sea view. Ghallis is an penthouse apartement so you have the whole roof terrace for yourself. The kitchen is very good equipped you find everything you need. Two big bathrooms and bedrooms with good madrasses. We had two wonderful weeks and would like to come back. Property manager Paul Hay, answer our mails and question very quick and we felt secure. Thanks for two lovely weeks at Ghallis tower...
Luxurious penthouse apartment with uninterrupted views of the sea from the seventh floor. It's veranda is huge, I'm not surprised that it has a dining table and chairs on the veranda capable of seating ten people with an appropriate sized barbecue. The penthouse veranda however is not suitable for children.
The accommodation has to be one of the most, if not the most, luxurious penthouse apartments in Qawra/Buggibba its extremely well equipped and unlike many that for some obscure reason (possibly taking Health and Safety to extremes) remove everything that is remotely edible.
Driving in Malta is an experience best avoided, the roads (potholes) are similar to Cyprus and the standard of driving is appalling. My Garmin Sat. Nav. listed 102 towns/cities in Malta but for some inexplicable reason didn't recognize Qawra nor Bugibba. I should have taken the advice of the letting agency and taken airport transfers. Cars can be hired locally by the day but there are numerous daily excursions to all the popular locations throughout Malta.
If you're looking for the little something extra you'll love the Ghallis Tower Penthouse. Not only is the apartment beautifully arranged in the style of Scandinavian Simplicity, you get to wake up every day to the most magnificent view. The apartment comes with a huge terrace, from where you can see the ocean, which is literally a stone's throw away.
Malta, of course, has a lot to offer, but whenever we felt like we needed a break we just walked down in our swimwear, crossed the street and arrived at a platform that allows you both sunbathing and diving into the deep blue. Another option that we took advantage of was to enjoy our private sunbathing station on the terrace with comfortable sunbeds and a homemade coffee from the professional espresso maker in the kitchen.
During our one week stay we tried to explore as much as possible but on two nights we stayed in the St. Pauls Bay Area and can highly recommend two restaurants: The Indian is very good and the other one is a real discovery! There is a tiny fisher house that serves Chinese cuisine. The owner though is a real Maltese and loves to prepare you authentic, fresh and delicious sea food. Just ask him what he can offer you off the menu ; )
The hosts did a great job making us feel welcomed right away by beautifully setting everything up upon our arrival. Also in terms of communication we had absolutely no problems. After spending an amazing honeymoon here there's nothing left to say but: Grazzi for the great stay and hopefully see you again, beautiful Ghallis Tower Penthouse!
