Resort Description

Hotel 1926 is a stylish 4* getaway in the atmospheric neighbourhood of Sliema in Malta, offering modern chic design with an enchanting touch of 1920s flair.

For a small island, Malta offers a huge list of unforgettable experiences both above and below the water. For divers, the crystal-clear conditions set the scene perfectly for wreck exploration, admiration of giant, quirky rock formations and some unique marine flora and fauna. Various bream, nudibranchs, octopus, flying fish, stingrays and parrot fish are just a few of the species you may encounter. 

On land, marvel at the Megalithic Temples of Malta, said to be one of the oldest man-made structures still standing. For something a little more chilled-out, head to the spa (entrance is included in the price of your room), or take a stroll down to the beach club and order an Aperol spritz to enjoy as you watch the sun set over the Mediterranean Sea. 

How to get there
