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:

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.

A Guide to Romantic Malta

Planning a romantic holiday? Take a look at our guide to romantic Malta for the most amorous spots on the archipelago

Romantic Guide to Malta | Valletta at Sunset © ViewApart/iStock

Malta sure knows how to do romance. With sunset views over the Dingli Cliffs and St George’s Bay, quiet strolls around the beautiful Barrakka Gardens, and the romance of Malta’s many secluded beaches and bays, it’s incredibly difficult not to be swept away by Malta’s charms. Whether you’re planning a romantic minibreak, a honeymoon, or a memorable proposal, take a look at our guide to romantic Malta for the ultimate couples’ itinerary.

Mdina – The Silent City

An area of the island as old and chequered as the history of Malta itself, the charming citadel of Mdina has been fortified since as far back as 1000BC. Once the grand capital of Malta, when rule over the island was taken by the Knights of St John –a sea-based force who favoured Valletta and the Grand Harbour as their base – Mdina became the playground of the Maltese nobility instead. Perched atop a rocky hill, and remaining relatively untouched by modernity (no pesky cars or bikes to disturb your romantic reverie), Mdina has preserved its medieval aristocratic ambiance with towering walls and peaceful shady streets. The city’s lofty position affords stunning views over the island and, on a good day, across to Sicily, providing a romantic aura quite unlike any other.

Blue Grotto

Kick-start a romantic day out with a private tour in a traditional brightly painted fishing boat known as a luzzu. A key spot to look out for is the Blue Grotto, a spectacular 30m high natural limestone cave formation. According to mythology, it was here that sea nymphs captivated sailors with their charms – perfect if you’re planning to do some wooing yourself.

Fomm ir-Riħ

One of Malta’s most underrated sites, Fomm ir-Riħ, is an isolated beach alcove with unbeatable views over the cliffs and valleys. Take a dip in the calm crystal clear waters of the ocean or stroll along the pebble beach. The secluded spot is only reachable by foot via a steep path near the village of Baħrija, and while it’s hard to get to, this only makes it more rewarding. With no other visitors to spoil the views or interrupt a special moment (…or proposal?) it’s well worth the effort.

Barrakka Gardens

Set on the coastline of the historic town of Valletta, Barrakka Gardens is a slice of peace and quiet in the capital city. With Roman-style arches and captivating views over the Grand Harbour, the upper section of the gardens is particularly picturesque, while the lower part makes for a charming walk through lush vegetation. As you explore, make sure to stop by the garden’s many classical statues for a window into Maltese history.

St George’s Bay

If you’re staying at our St George’s Bay hotel, then you’re already smack bang in the middle of one of Malta’s most beautiful areas. Overlooking the picturesque bay, with its narrow golden sandy beach and harboured multi-coloured boats, our hotel is a prime spot for dinner with a view. Gaze over the bay as you feast on flavoursome Italian cuisine at Da Marina, or head inside to fine dining restaurant Caviar & Bull for a gastronomic exploration through the Mediterranean.

Dingli Cliffs

A romantic trip just isn’t complete without a sunset viewing. For the ultimate vistas, hike to the highest point in the Maltese islands, the Dingli Cliffs. Take a perch near the tiny chapel dedicated to St Mary Magdalene and watch as the setting sun transforms the sky into whole spectrum of colours. If that’s not enough to make you fall in love with the place (and each other), then just wait for romantic Malta’s trump card – a full blanket of stars.
