Attend a traditional church service this Christmas in Malta


In the midst of all the joy and laughter, we sometimes forget the true meaning of Christmas. But if you’re in Malta this festive season, you won’t be able to miss the strong religious heritage that the islanders proudly carry with them throughout the holidays. From Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve to after-lunch Mass on Christmas Day – there’s no better way to celebrate the feast than by attending Church and enjoying a good meal, the things that are truly sacred!


Celebrate Christmas at any of our AX Hotels this year – from Early Morning Buffet Breakfasts to Christmas Day Lunches and Dinners, our wide choice of dining outlets and hotels will leave you spoiled for choice on December 25th!


Early Morning Breakfast in Sliema and Qawra

The Early Morning Breakfast is a great way to spend quality time with family, exchange gifts and start the day on the right note, after attending the traditional Midnight Mass that is embraced in all parishes in Malta. It’s an exciting occasion for the youngest in the family to stay up till past midnight, and an opportunity for the older generations to share significant experiences with their closest ones. The tradition is prominent in towns such as Sliema, Valletta and Mdina, where you can also take in the stunning Christmas lights lining the streets. After Midnight Mass, get together with family and enjoy an Early Morning Buffet Breakfast at AX The Palace or AX The Victoria Hotel in Sliema. Alternatively, head to AX Seashells Resort at Suncrest, where you can indulge in a delicious Buffet Breakfast at Coral Cove restaurant in Qawra!

Christmas Day Lunch at AX Hotels

Other families forego the Christmas Eve traditions, opting for a cosy evening at home instead. Christmas films are perfect for a night like this, as are seasonal treats and fluffy jumpers. Then comes a good night’s sleep, after which families are ready to celebrate the big day together. Enjoy the excitement of Christmas morning and treat your family to a Christmas Day Lunch instead of cooking at home. With AX Hotels, you can make the most out of Christmas Day with a Buffet Lunch at AX The Palace or AX The Victoria Hotel in Sliema, or AX Seashells Resort at Suncrest. Let the merriment flow as you sit back and enjoy the warm company of friends and family, allowing us to handle the preparations!

AX The Victoria Hotel - Christmas Dinner

Celebrate Christmas with a Special Dinner

If you’re looking for a place to enjoy a quieter Christmas Dinner, away from the busy restaurants – Christmas Day Dinner could be an ideal option. The 5-star Grain restaurant in Valletta is the perfect place for a festive get together, with an exquisite a la carte that bends the rules. For a joyous dining experience, head to the Cheeky Monkey Gastropub in Valletta or Qawra, the place where it’s okay to indulge in one too many drinks! For a more family-oriented atmosphere, Luzzu Restaurant and Tal-Kaptan, both located on the Qawra seafront, are perfect choices for a pleasant Christmas evening!
