At Corinthia, we always strive to provide the best rates on our website. If you don’t think we have, we’ll pay for 100% of your room on the first night, and price match the rest. Should you find a lower price elsewhere, please submit a claim within 24 hours of your original booking and we will respond within two working days. Please note, this also applies to discounts and promotions available on

Process for making a claim:

Step 1. If within 24 hours of a confirmed reservation with Corinthia Hotels made on, you find a lower rate for the same hotel, room type, inclusions, stay dates, discounts and payment conditions, please contact the relevant email address from the list below to make your claim. All claims must be made within 24 hours of the original booking and at least 24 hours prior to the standard check-in time of the hotel.

Step 2. Your claim should be supported by the URL where the lower rate was found and a screen shot which clearly displays the date of stay, room type, same hotel, inclusions and payment conditions of the lower rate offering on the competing website. Please include your contact information (name, email and phone number).

Step 3. If we are able to verify that the lower rate found qualifies for the Best Rate Guarantee, and all other terms and conditions are met, Corinthia Hotels will pay for 100% of the room charges of your first night, and will price match the room for the rest of your stay. You will be charged for all nights booked at the matched rate, minus the first night which will be free.

To make your claim, email the relevant hotel on one of the following:

First night free, match rate for rest of stay, no minimum nights

We reserve the right to deny a claim if the availability of the Competing Rate cannot be independently verified at the time of processing the claim.
12. The Best Rate Guarantee does not apply to packaged rates. Packaged rates include Hotel accommodations sold as part of a travel package in which the Hotel does not provide all services (including but not limited to airfare and/or car rental, tours etc.) and Hotel accommodations sold with additional amenities.
13. Corinthia Hotels may deny a claim where the difference between the rates is less than 1%.
14. If the Competing Rate is in a different currency from the rate booked on, the Competing Rate will be converted into the same currency as the rate offered on our website using the exchange rate as published in in place at the time the initial reservation was made. Discrepancies may occur between Corinthia Hotels' rate and the Competing Rate due to differences in exchange rate sources. If the rate discrepancy is solely due to exchange rate fluctuations, we reserve the right to deny the claim.

An Active Christmas in Malta

From winter cave diving to walks along the rugged coastline, escape the stodge of a traditional Christmas in Malta

Sunset ©

It’s hard to fault a traditional Christmas. But for those who tend towards SAD (that’s “Seasonal Affective Disorder”, not just free-floating malaise), keep their electric blankets on year-round, and have an antipathy towards all things icy, then it could well be time to consider spending Christmas in Malta.
an active christmas in MaltaEven in the depths of winter, Malta serves up sunglasses-friendly weather. Temperatures rarely dip into the single digits, and while chilly nights require jackets, the island’s famous sun can certainly be relied upon. The list of adventure sports are endless – visitors can hike around Mellieħa, mountain bike on Gozo, go riding at Ghajn Tuffieha, rock climb at Wied Babu or even try some winter cave diving at Ghar Lapsi.

Hiking At Mellieha

Malta’s historic, picturesque towns and villages – consider that Christmas in Malta may also be a good time to work on your photography skills – are a good place to begin. Comb the cobbled, stony streets of Valletta and Rabat before taking to the countryside. The terrain near Mellieħa is one popular option for walkers (and rewards with incredibly attractive bay and beach views), while just a hop across the water is the small island of Comino. Once pirate territory, the visit holds particular appeal for kids, who can dip more than a few toes in the splash-friendly Blue Lagoon.

Mountain Biking In Gozo

For those looking to up the ante on their explorations, Gozo – the second largest of Malta’s islands – is famous for its rough and rocky terrain. Without the drenching humidity of summer, the island is more accessible to mountain biking enthusiasts. But even if you’ve indulged in a little too much panettone – or are travelling with children too young to tackle the hills – 4×4 Gozo Jeep Tours provide fun, fuss-free trips around the island.

Horse Riding In Ghajn Tuffieha

After the presents have been opened and the sweets ingested by the fistful, balance out your Christmas in Malta with a bit of fresh air. Suitable for children as young as five, Golden Bay offers horse riding courses around some of Malta’s most scenic turf. Based in Ghajn Tuffieha in the north of Malta, the school leads families through one-hour nature rides – or longer sunset rides – around the region.

Rock Climbing At Wied Babu

Given its stony scenery, Malta is famous among rock climbers. If scrabbling up a sheer rock wall sounds like just the ticket, there’s no shortage of climbs available, try the canyon at Wied Babu, or if that’s not to your tastes, then Malta hosts over 1,300 individual climbing routes, with choices ranging from bouldering and sport climbing to deep water soloing. MC Adventure offers equipment and guidance for hardened climbers, while also introducing first-timers to the sport – the perfect way to burn off that Christmas pudding.

Diving At Ghar Lapsi

And what of Malta’s famous waters? The country’s coves, bays and beaches, may seem better suited to summer purists, but while winter is less bikini-friendly, it also happens to be diving season. After squeezing into a wetsuit, swimmers can expect high visibility and relatively warm waters. Home to dozens of dive centres, divers of all levels can have a go – beginners should try the beautiful cave dive at Ghar Lapsi.

Sun, sea, and warmth: though Christmas in Malta won’t be white, travellers may just come back fitter than when they arrived. New Year, new you. And all that.
