When it comes to the festive season, not everyone wants to hole up and hang around the family, singing Christmas carols and listening to Aunt Joy’s same story. With options of festive fever and the opportunities to travel to Europe’s Islands, Malta New Year celebrations may just be that ticket that you’re looking for.
With a wide selection of beaches and amazing hotels on the historically rich islands, you can easily spend a week in paradise but it’s really the New Year Celebrations that people travel to the islands of Malta for at this time of year. So in anticipation of next year’s festive season and while you thinking of planning your new year’s trip with some amazing Gozo holidays on the Islands, let’s take a look at what is happening this New Years in Malta.
1) New Years Eve Gala and Buffet at St Julians Meridian Hotel – At one of the most luxurious hotels on the whole of the main island you’ll find a selection of amazing food and live entertainment on offer for families and couples to wish away the last few hours of New Year’s 2011 in Malta. This amazing buffet dinner will come with the sizzling sounds of freshly prepared food, accompanied by a talented 4 piece band playing some of the greatest hits through the ages. A steal at the price of 75 Euros per adult and children half price to enjoy the lovely venue on the border of the beach.
2) Grease to Black Eyed Peas at the Malta Fairs and Convention Centre – If you’re in the mood to boogie into the Malta New Year with you dancing shoes on, you’ll enjoy the variety of music and amazing lighting on show at the Convention Centre. In the city of Taqali, you’ll find the best tunes hitting the dance floor courteous of DJ Alex Grech (Reflex) which will bring together all ages and a myriad of song choices under one roof. Start with a cocktail from the early hours and from 20:30 local time, you need to start shaking your body.
3) La Soiree Chic at Dolmen Hotel Malta – If you want a New Year celebration with a touch of class and panache, then the black tie event happening at one of the top 5 Star hotels on the Maltese coastline may be exactly your martini. With welcome drinks and canapés and the opportunity to mingle at an open bar throughout the evening and find that special someone, this event has the class of the elite social scene. 50 Euros will get you in early and the hotel provides live entertainment as well as a cheaper stopover rate for those needing to sleep soon after the New Year is upon you in Malta.
These are some of the reasons that people cannot resist enjoying the Malta New Year experience. Next year I suggest you make that booking early and ensure that you have the festive party of a lifetime on the Malta Islands!
