Gozo's original five-star hotel continues to offer understated luxury and an exclusivity that's unique in Malta. Set atop one of the island's highest points, this high-class retreat has 1½ square miles of nature reserve for guests to explore. The low-rise buildings blend in with the topography and are surrounded by verdant native gardens and woodland. There are pools on-site and a private rocky inlet a 10-minute drive away (by hotel shuttle bus) for swimming and snorkeling.
If traveling with children, book a room close to the family pool; couples should opt for rooms around the main pool.
