Resort Description

Primera Hotel is one of the most popular 3* hotels in the Bugibba area, boasting a rooftop pool and terrace with atmospheric views of the neighbourhood and ocean beyond.

It's location is perfect for divers and non-divers alike. Only a short stroll from a well-respected PADI 5* IDC dive center, you'll be whisked off on a moment's notice to some of the best diving destinations around Malta, Comino and Gozo. Here, you can explore historic wrecks, admire epic rocky topography and search for camouflaged octopus hiding in nooks and crannies. 

For the non-divers, or those simply looking for post-dive activities, Malta offers a huge selection. Head down to Valletta for epic views, cobbled streets and tasty food, or go south to the Megalithic Temples (said to be the oldest man-made structure on earth that's still standing). TV-buffs will be sure not to miss out on a trip to Mdina, otherwise known as Kings Landing in Game of Thrones. 

How to get there


  • The best airport to fly into is Luqa Airport, which is 45 minutes drive from the hotel by car. 
  • The resort will arrange round-trip transfers on your behalf for an additional fee (advance notice required). 
  • Check in time is 2 pm. 


  • Check out time is 11 am. 
  • On the final day of your stay, the resort will drop you back at the airport (additional cost, advance notice required).
