We advertise this offer at up to 33% off. We calculate this discount percentage based on the rates we offer compared to a price check of other online travel providers offering the same product and travel date. An example of our maximum discount is:

On 07/05/2019, leaving from London Gatwick, two people may book a three-night stay in a Standard room (inclusions as noted above) and will pay £399 per person, per stay, compared to a third party online rate of £599 per person, per stay. Based on this calculation, by booking with Secret Escapes, you will save 33%.

The discounts, price and availability stated above were checked on 01/11/2018.

Due to fluctuations in other travel providers’ prices, the discount advertised will not always be the same discount on the “from” price.

The lead price shown is subject to availability, which will naturally decrease during the course of a sale as the relevant dates are booked.

The offer is 100% non-refundable and date changes are not possible once the booking has been made.

Your contract is with Secret Escapes with ATOL number 11257.

Be one of the first to enjoy plush, grown-up style at the first five-star luxury hotel in Valletta, Malta's historic capital city - breakfast and all travel included

A blend of Baroque architecture and swish style, nowhere in Valletta screams contemporary-chic quite like the brand-new AX Palazzo Merkanti, which is opening for 2019. An up-and-coming landmark base, Valletta's first five-star luxury hotel is primed to please even the most discerning traveller, with beautiful interiors blending rich materials and fabrics, dramatic colour palettes and statement lighting. It's not all about the splendid style at this hotel, though: guest rooms set the designer bar high, and are tranquil havens to return to after a day of sightseeing, while the restaurant is a go-to for refined fine dining.

AX Palazzo Merkanti's location in the heart of Valletta makes it the prime spot from which to enjoy a spot of sightseeing. You'll be within a 10-minute stroll from key attractions, including the Grand Master's Palace, Fort St. Elmo, the Grand Harbour which overlooks scintillating azure waters, and Saint John's Co-Cathedral - all spellbinding displays of history, culture and refined architecture. Malta International Airport is within a 20-minute drive from the hotel.

Treat yourself to a fine dining feast at the hotel's own Rosselli Restaurant, where a sophisticated menu meets a superb dining room setting. AX Palazzo Merkanti is also well situated in the centre of Valletta - great for getting to know the city's culinary thrills.


AX Palazzo Merkanti is situated in Valletta, capital city of the Mediterranean island nation of Malta, within a 20-minute drive from the airport. Valletta bursts with historic wonder: take time to visit the Grand Master's Palace, Fort St. Elmo and the National War Museum, before getting your fill of ancient history at the National Museum of Archaeology. Saint John's Co-Cathedral is a must-visit, too: dating back to the mid-1500s, it's a grand, gold-hued affair that stuns with its ornate ceilings, floors and arches.
