Mellieha and Mellieha Bay (locally referred to as Għadira) are popular locations in Malta for a typical sun & sea type holiday and there’s a variety of Mellieha hotels you can choose from.
Hotels and other types of accommodation like self-catering apartments are in high demand here, mostly during the high season (June-September).
In this overview of hotels in Mellieha, I put forward a selection of options based on personal experience and those of family and friends. If a hotel isn’t worth recommending you will not find it on this list.

Lure Hotel & Spa is without doubt the best hotel in Mellieħa, offering the highest quality accommodation in the area. This exclusive family-run designer hotel is situated at the village’s quaint main square and offers comfort and relaxation in an exclusive setting.
Strictly speaking, the Radisson Blu Resort & Spa isn’t located IN Mellieħa, but in the wider area of which the village is part.
The hotel earned its spot on this list simply because it’s one of the few 5-Star/luxury hotels around and its location is unique, sitting on the edge of Golden Bay (on the West coast of Malta).
The Maritim Antonine is a good value option, located along the main road leading down to Mellieha Bay.
With well-equipped rooms and various services and facilities, it’s also a good family holiday option.
The Seabank Hotel Malta is a bit of a staple in the area, having been around for decades, right in the corner of Mellieha Bay. Despite being an old name in the choice of hotels, having undergone extensive refurbishment and expansion in recent years, this is one of the better Mellieha hotels in the area once again.
And it shows, if there’s one hotel you need to book early on, it’s the Seabank: It’s a highly popular choice, also for family holidays.
The Ramla Bay Resort used to be a firm favourite among Mellieha hotels, particularly because of the self-catering apartments and studio apartments with sea views that they used to offer.
Although that charm’s been kind of ruined with the towering annexe with more hotel rooms, it’s still a good option to consider, with a combination of its unique location (and quiet area) and comfortable, well-furnished rooms.
Located next door to the Ramla Bay Resort, the LABRANDA Riviera Hotel & Spa is another 4-star option among Mellieha hotels, in the northernmost part of Malta, with views of Comino and Gozo.
Also remote and located in a quiet area, it’s another good option if you’re looking for a resort. Clean, spacious rooms with modest but nicely designed interiors, good facilities including a large outdoor pool, LABRANDA gets the package right and receives generally positive reviews.
The Pergola Hotel & Spa has been a solid choice for hotels in Mellieha for years and having received a recent facelift, it’s still going strong.
Away from the main road, the hotel is located in the upper part of the village in a quiet part of town. The rooms and facilities are modern and well-finished but prices increase rapidly the closer to summer you get.
The outdoor pool, its bar (in a naturally-formed cave) and the restaurant all receive positive reviews
The Solana and Spa is another good option which is located in the same street as the Maritim Antonine. Having undergone a refurbishment in recent years, they offer good quality accommodation at reasonable rates (provided you book well in advance).
The Mellieha Holiday Centre (also referred to locally as the Danish village – it being a popular destination promoted by specific travel agents in Denmark) is a unique concept in the area.
This is the island’s only real bungalow park and is one of the few remaining accommodation options that aren’t multi-storey high rises. In fact, the privately laid out bungalows are surrounded by greenery (also a premium in Malta) and are located right across the road from Malta’s largest sandy beach: Mellieha Bay.
NOTE: This hotel is not always available when demand is high (particularly in the high season). Book early!
The Luna Holiday Complex has been around for a while and is a bit of a staple in the area. With regular refurbishments, it’s still a popular hotel and offers well-sized rooms right on the edge of Mellieha, on the road that takes you up to the village.
