“A Real Gem”
Reviewed 21 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We recently celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary at Indulgence Divine.
The house is a work of Art and the town of Birgu is steeped in history.
We really enjoyed visiting Valletta and Mdina. There is so much to see and do in Malta.
The local restaurants are great and the people are warm and welcoming.
The owner and his team are very helpful and caring.
We had a great time.

“Wow!.. What a find”
Reviewed 16 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

What a fantastic stylish home in a wonderful location. Minutes from the Grand Harbour and little boat rides to to the other cities
The house was designed beautifully. Joseph the house manage picks you up from the airport and genuinely cares about making your stay the best it possibly can be.
We went for my wifes 40th Birthday and couldnt have asked for more. Beautiful accommodation, warm locals and lovely weather
Back to the house... It's loved, clean, colourful and modern with its historic features. Everything is wonderful, from the cups of coffee on the roof terraces to stepping over the road into the tiny restaurant.
Will certainly be returning.
The owner Aldo really cares, and attention to detail is a must for him.... From a welcome pack, phonecall during the week, and emails from initial booking on where to visit
On one hand I want to tell everyone how good this place is.... On the other hand i want to keep it a little secret so its not booked the next time I want to stay... A little Gem... 10 stars out of 5!!!

Dear Glennrick,

We're all flattered by your praise. Both Joseph (Manager) and Josephine (housekeeper) were delighted with your comments, as was I. Please don't hesitate to share with others, as long as you make sure to book suitably early. :-) We look forward to seeing you again very soon.

“Living in a real work of art!”
Reviewed 12 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We had a fantastic time at Indulgence Divine! We stayed here for our honeymoon, and are so glad we did. The attention to detail in the house, in terms of both design and comfort, is second to none, and the photos speak for themselves (if anything they don’t do it justice). As a former arts student, I loved that we were really living in a beautiful work of art.

We were greeted by the house manager Joseph who showed us everything we needed to know, and were given a generous welcome pack which means we didn’t have to rush off to the shops to have our first cup of tea.

The kitchen is a great feature, perfect for making dinner for 2, however they are also a few lovely restaurants doted about the narrow medieval streets of Birgu. Our deposit was returned 1 day after our trip. Aldo is concerned about your stay, so everything is labelled and there is a ‘bible’ that explains EVERYTHING in the house.

We would recommend this place to anyone thinking of staying in Malta, and we have been raving about this dream house to everyone back at home. It is 5mins away from Valletta by Water Taxi, and in its own quiet charming location. Our only regret is that we did not have enough time to ‘stay in’.

Thank you Aldo and team for making our honeymoon so special.

Dear Clara and Oliver,

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on Indulgence Divine. I find it flattering that you should choose our place for your honeymoon - so thrilled that you loved it. Our guests always find it a dilemma whether to dine 'at home' or choose one of the lovely restaurants in Vittoriosa - I must admit I've been there myself. I'm glad you made use of the water taxi to Valletta. It's a great way to see the fortifications of both cities in all their beauty. I'm glad that we managed to add something memorable to your honeymoon. We'd love to see the photos! Joe and Josephine send their love along with mine.

“Dreamy”
Reviewed 26 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed one week in October and it was great. The lovely historical building, the rooms' design and decor, the modern kitchen and bathroom, the terrace, the secret place. What was as great was the location. Birgu is the place to be and this apartment has the best restaurant across the street.

“Stunningly beautiful house which oozes history and style”
Reviewed 14 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We really cannot think of enough superlatives to describe this wonderful house. Aldo has converted this 16th century house with immense style and it was an utter joy and privilege to have been able to stay there. We only wish it could have been for longer.

The location is great - just a short walk from the marina which was a pleasure to wonder around when we weren't off sightseeing. It is perfectly located for visits to Valletta which is just a short trip across the harbour by water taxi or the ferry. There are also some excellent sites to visit within walking distance of the house including the Inquisitor's Palace, the Malta at War Museum and the Maritime Museum.

Aldo and Joseph made us feel so welcome, meeting us at the airport which was much appreciated. And the welcome pack is a very thoughtful touch.

We cannot praise this house highly enough and hope to return soon.

“Beautiful Apartment. Stunning location.”
Reviewed 12 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Indulgence Divine is a beautifully rennovated 16th century townhouse. A perfect balance of ancient and modern with incredible attention to detail. A designers paradise set in the wondefully photogenic city of Vittoriosa. We felt this was a great place to stay away from the throngs of tourists and only a short ferry ride away from the capital Valletta.

We were made to feel very welcome and the welcome pack was the best we've ever received. If you're looking for a base to explore Malta and Valletta we think you would be struggling to beat this accommodation in terms decor and luxury. We would definitely recommend it to all our friends and stay here again should we decide to return to Malta.

“Fantastic Accommodation”
Reviewed 22 September 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The property felt so luxurious, a real gem. It was brilliant to be somewhere with so much history and so much to look at, with virtually no tourists around. I would highly recommend staying in Birgu and travelling to other locations, it was very easy. We had a lovely meal in the osteria opposite and the bars in the square had a great local vibe.
