ThirtySeven Gozo was a beautiful guest house which was the ideal escape from reality. Don't go expecting a normal hotel - go expecting the feeling that you are being hosted by people in their own home, as it is clear that they only want you to be comfortable and happy in their much loved retreat.
Our week was nothing but perfect, our stay was made all the more wonderful by the generosity and sincere gestures made by the owners.
Breakfast was simple but delicious, the grounds well kept and beautiful to simply do nothing in, and the intimate evening meals were cooked to perfection.
We explored the local area by foot or by taxi (the local service used by the guest house were a delight to chat to, and again had plenty to suggest and recommend). The nearby port of Xlendi offered great sunsets and plenty of wonderful places to dine. We were lucky to visit San Lawrenz during one of their festivities - so lovely to see authentic celebrations in such an unspoilt village.
There is plenty to do on the island of Gozo, and I would suggest you ask Patti, the runner of ThirtySeven, for any suggestions and hints - she certainly knows best, and her recommendations were spot on whether dining out, taking a stroll, or finding the best beach to visit.
If you're looking for a unique stay, and are happy to trust the hosts - you can't go wrong with this lucky find.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to Gozo, the island of Calypso, an idyllic sanctuary of land in the middle of a sapphire colored sea. We have and continued to aim to create an atmosphere within the Thirtyseven Hotel walls that matches the nature of the land. Behind our walls stand an oasis of gardens, a relaxing breeze from the ocean, and each room suite is designed differently and is as boutique as can be. Regardless if you are into design, good food, going to the beach, let us enchant you in what Thirtyseven Hotel is all about. Thirtyseven Hotel is located in the village of Munxar, a ten minute walk from the bay of Xlendi, Sanap Cliffs and Victoria the capital of Gozo. It is also a 15 min drive from the harbour terminal Mgarr. We don't like the idea of relaxation and luxury being mutually exclusive at Thirtyseven Hotel. We believe there is a place for both in the same setting. There can be luxury without grandiose overtures and there can be relaxation without skimping on design. At Thirtyseven Hotel, we look to combine the best of both of these things, to satisfy both needs simultaneously, to please the search for both of these qualities - be it yoga, massages, trips to coves or beaches. Let us help and organize in your search, your exploration to find the best of both of these worlds. Luxe and Lax. Thirtyseven Hotel is filled to the brim with possibilities of different ways of detaching and detoxing from the hustle of day to day life. From scuba diving to bungee jumping to painting or pottery or to yachting. Let us know what will help you find the right experience and we will be thrilled to help you.
