Why choose between idyllic nature time and exciting urban activity when you can have both? Enjoy blissful relaxation in a chic resort set over a valley that stretches towards a bustling city centre. And there’s even more reasons the Urban Valley Resort & Spa is the perfect place to stay.
1) A perfect location to enjoy the best of both worlds
One of the main highlights of the Urban Valley Resort & Spa is its excellent location. Retreat to a charming accommodation set within Wied Għollieqa Nature Reserve in Kappara, surrounded by trees and overlooking a beautiful valley. Nothing but birds singing can be heard here, but you’re far from cut off from civilisation. Whenever you feel like it, venture out and discover the variety of entertainment, shopping, street cafés, historic sights and much more, all within easy reach.
2) Free shuttle to a myriad of experiences
Kappara is walking distance from popular St Julian’s and Sliema, where you can also take a ferry across the harbour to the capital Valletta. Or use the resort’s complimentary shuttle service to these three top locations! Get frisky at St Julian’s wide variety of entertainment and bustling nightlife. Soak up the sun at an outdoor café in Sliema after your shopping spree, or swim at its gorgeous rocky beaches. Delight in exploring historic Valletta’s museums and piazzas. Reach the rest of the island’s attractions easily with buses from Sliema or Valletta.
3) Idyllic moments at the resort and spa
Only birds chirping and valley views from the resort’s two large freshwater outdoor pools, one of which includes a children’s pool, and sundeck, however. And pamper time at the well-equipped spa, with treatments such as the Abhyanga Ayurvedic massage and Hydrocure facial. More relaxing moments abound in the Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and heated indoor pool. These are just some of the bliss moments available to you when all you want to do is relax and unwind.
4) Action at the resort’s fitness and sports amenities
Springing into action does not warrant leaving the resort. A game of tennis anyone? Tennis equipment is complimentary so just book your court! How about a complimentary archery session? Hone your skills with that bow and arrow! There’s also a small fitness room for those who enjoy a regular gym workout to get that blood pumping. Or simply take a relaxing stroll around the extensive gardens overlooking the valley if you’re not feeling all that frisky; look out for the birds! Kiddos also have their very own play park.
5) Delicious food and beverage options to satisfy all tastes
Settle into a cosy vibe with a good book and a hot coffee, and perhaps a light snack at Thistle Lounge Bar. Summertime may call for poolside cocktails or a glass of fine wine at Viento, while Tri is perfect for al fresco cocktails and a light snack. Indulge in delightful healthy breakfasts and buffet dinners at the resort’s main restaurant, the Silver Heron, using produce direct from the onsite greenhouse! Your taste buds will thank you for the delicious buffet of antipasti, salads, pasta, soup, roasts, tasty accompaniments, cheese and dessert.
6) Your pet can join all the fun
Furry friends are welcome at the resort in special pet-friendly rooms that come with a pet bed, bowls, treats, toys and a litter box or disposal bags. Your pet can also indulge in wholesome food that’s prepared by the Executive Chef that’s available for room service. Meanwhile, Puss or Pooch can join you for breakfast, lunch and dinner at the Silver Heron Restaurant’s pet designated area, for walks around the resort or for chill time by the outdoor pool. Book your pet at the time of booking and enjoy an escape together.
7) LGBT wedding packages to be announced later on in 2020
