In less than a year since its grand reopening, the 4-star AX ODYCY Hotel in Qawra is delighted to announce its triumph at the Traveller Review Awards 2024 run by, the world’s leading online travel marketplace. The award recognises AX ODYCY for its outstanding hospitality, as reflected in the positive review scores from guests who have experienced the hotel’s contemporary facilities and exceptional service.

Now in their twelfth edition, The Traveller Review Awards are an annual appreciation programme that recognise hospitality operators who go above and beyond to create exceptional experiences for guests. The review score for the 2024 edition is derived from the average of all guest reviews published on, across its website and app, between December 1, 2020, and November 30, 2023, further highlighting AX ODYCY’s remarkable achievement within 12 months of opening in May 2023.

Claire Zammit Xuereb, Director of Hospitality at AX Group, shares her gratitude, “At AX Hotels, we’ve received our fair share of industry awards and guest recognition over the past 40 years operating in the business, but this award holds special meaning. Early recognition like this underscores our team’s commitment to exceptional service and creating memorable guest experiences. When we reopened the newly refurbished hotel in May 2023, our aim was to offer something distinctive in Malta. We wanted to create a destination that embraces a diverse range of travellers, which offers unique journeys for each guest to find something special and tailored to their preferences. It’s immensely rewarding to see so many guests creating special memories with us. This award only fuels our determination to build on the high standards of hospitality we’ve set from the start.”
