Malta’s Top Five Star Hotel, the Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa, Launches Pet-Friendly Program for Four-Legged Guests!

Taking a five-star holiday with your four-legged best friend in Malta was made easier this week. The five-star Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa launched “Palace Pups,” the Mediterranean island’s leading pet-friendly hotel program.  The Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa is located in the beautiful garden section of St. Anton, next to Malta’s Presidential Palace.

Designed by pet-lovers for pet-lovers, this luxury offering makes it easy for Corinthia Palace Hotel guests to bring their dogs, cats or others animals with them while they visit Malta.

“This sort of program works brilliantly overseas at some of the best hotels in the world,” says David Woodward, general manager for the Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa. “So we wanted to offer the same facilities to local pet owners, as well as our guests from overseas.”

Corinthia Palace has “designated rooms where pets can stay with their owners, specialized pet facilities, and even a safe space in the garden where dogs can run off the leash.  

Woodward added, “Of course we have also kept our non pet-owning guests in mind every step of the way. Visiting pets must be kept on a leash when in the public areas, and will only be able to join their owners in ‘doggie designated’ parts of the hotel. The program has been very well received so far and we’re thrilled to have already had a number of four-legged guests in recent weeks.”

The hotel offers a variety of facilities to its canine visitors, including:

• Doggie check-in

• Complimentary in-room facilities including bowls, a bed, treats and toys

• A doggie room service menu, with a range of fresh foods available that are all cooked up by the hotel’s talented team of chefs

• Dog walking and dog sitting facilities

• Dog massages and grooming

Additionally, for every pet visitor, the hotel will be making a donation to a local dog sanctuary.

About Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa

Located in the heart of the island of Malta, adjacent to the Presidential Palace and public botanical gardens, the 156-room five-star Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa exudes grace and historic charm. It is positioned between the island’s capital Valletta and Mdina, the picturesque medieval silent city that is still inhabited till this day.

 This opulent hotel offers the leisure guest an extensive range of facilities, including the Athenaeum Spa and Health Club, complete with a wide range of revitalising treatments, indoor and outdoor swimming pools and tennis and squash courts.

With a century old restored villa as its main dining venue, this hotel is all about warmth, personal attention, and traditional elegance - a breath of fresh air in today’s world of impersonal hotels. Alternatively, guests can be pampered at the hotel’s exclusive Far Eastern restaurant Rickshaw, or, in summer, at the star-gazing pool terrace restaurant.

For the business executive, the very best in state-of-the-art facilities are available, with two large conference rooms easily accommodating 550 delegates, while six syndicate rooms and two boardrooms are ideal for smaller groups.

The Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa was inaugurated in 1968 and has been the winner of several ‘Best in Class’ awards over the years, including the prestigious Best Hotel in Malta award for the last six years by the International ‘World Travel Awards’, considered as the ‘Oscars’ of the travel industry.
