DESTINATION GOZO

In the heart of the Mediterranean, just south of Sicily, lies Gozo. Malta's little sister is an unspoilt island with green hills, dramatic cliffs and secluded bays surrounded by water of the deepest blue. On the edges of one of Gozo's picturesque valleys to the far west of the island, a small haven of luxurious tranquillity awaits: the Kempinski Hotel San Lawrenz. A stone's throw away from the villages of Għarb and San Lawrenz, it takes all of five minutes by car to reach the spectacular Dwejra coastline. Here the famous Azure Window, a natural rock arch towers about 50 metres above the sea, dwarfing anything underneath. Dip your toes into the clear, shallow waters of the nearby Inland Sea, connected to the open sea only by means of a 100 metre long tunnel through the rocks, or let one of the fishermen take you for a boat-ride through the narrow cleft and show you the gigantic Azure Window and the deep-blue surrounding sea, from a different perspective!

Wherever you are on the island, the sea is never farther away than a few minutes' drive. The surrounding sea of Gozo is still largely unspoiled, crystal-clear and warm; swimming and snorkelling are superb. The largest sandy beach, Ramla Bay, and the seaside resorts of Marsalforn and Xlendi are the main crowd pullers in Gozo. However, the coastline is interspersed with many little hidden bays and inlets that play to your illusion of being alone on the island.


THE HOTEL

The five-star countryside resort is of traditional Maltese architecture, and built with local honey-coloured limestone. The resort is set amid 30,000 m2 of grounds that include a landscape of 3 outdoor swimming pools as well as one of its unique features, the vast garden. Apart from providing the hotel restaurants with field-fresh produce such as vegetables, fruit and herbs, it offers guests a soothing environment for a stroll, or a peaceful rest on one of its wooden benches.

The 122 spacious guest rooms, 48 of which are suites, are decorated making use of traditional local elements, such as wood and natural limestone. The entire resort has an elegantly rustic atmosphere about it, accentuated by natural stone floors, palm trees and flower beds, and complemented by abundant use of massive wood. Colours are Mediterranean - ranging from golden yellow to full orange, from clay-red to warm brown - creating a soothing and stylish ambience that invites guests to linger and relax.


ACCOMMODATION

Our guests enjoy the ultimate in comfort and relaxation of elegant and spacious rooms. While during the hot summer months cool stonewalls and air-conditioning offer reprieve from the heat, the rooms' generous size and pleasing ambience will be appreciated when longer stretches of time are spent indoors in the cooler season.

Each room has a private balcony overlooking either the beautiful valley of San Lawrenz, landscaped garden or pool areas. All rooms are equipped with individually controlled air-condition and heating, cable TV, safe, mini-bar, tea and coffee making facilities, direct telephone and wireless Internet access. Bathrobes and slippers come with the compliments of the hotel, for our guests' convenience.


CONFERENCE, INCENTIVE & BUSINESS TRAVEL

The conference and meeting rooms at the Kempinski Hotel San Lawrenz are a fitting backdrop for an incentive meeting, giving delegates a perfect setting to work and to relax. Our facilities accommodate small meetings to large conferences. The main conference room with its high stone arches is spectacular and has the aura of a medieval banqueting hall, also a beautiful venue to celebrate special occasions such as birthdays and weddings.

Three smaller meeting rooms are interconnecting and can each cater independently for individual, smaller groups, serve as break-out rooms, or open up into one large meeting space. A full range of conference facilities, including systems for sound, lighting and projection, as well as full secretarial support and wireless LAN, guarantee the success of any event of any size.


RESTAURANTS & BARS

Often the highlights of a holiday that remain in mind most vividly even long after a vacation are culinary pleasures and enchanting dining experiences. With this in mind, the Kempinski Hotel San Lawrenz ensures that dining in its restaurants is a delight for both, the eyes and the taste buds. All restaurants have large terraces for al fresco dining in the warmer season.

Guests may enjoy their dinner in the elegant ambience of the elegant Restaurant L' Ortolan, which offers outstanding Mediterranean and Maltese cuisine with field fresh vegetables, olives, herbs and citrus picked fresh from the resort's own garden. Country cheeses, olive oil, brilliant red tomatoes exploding with flavour, plates heaped high with tasty fruit - all prepared and served with great care and attention. Kindly note a smart-casual dress code applies.

In addition to your Ayurveda or Spa treatment, our specially trained chefs could prepare a well-balanced Ayurvedic or Spa meal for you, to compliment your treatments.

At the Trattoria San Lawrenz, by contrast, Chef Francesco Calore creates authentic Italian dishes in a more laid-back yet elegant atmosphere. At the Trattoria the cuisine appeals to all ages; besides meat and vegetarian dishes, why not try a mouth-watering pizza straight from the oven, or choose from the freshest fish available?

Our pool-bar offers refreshing drinks in a delightful and casual setting, while the adjacent garden restaurant Gazebo serves light lunches in the warmer season only.

Last but not least, Il-Baldakkin, the cafe and lounge, is a popular place to while a drink or two away on its alluring sundown cocktail terrace overlooking the pool and countryside. Make sure you won't leave the island without having tried one of our delicious Kinnie cocktails, for example Kinnie Mojito, which marries Malta's bitter-sweet soft-drink with Cuban rum and cane sugar, refined with a touch of lime and mint leaves from our herb garden - an enthralling melange of the tastes of Gozo! But here you also get the finest pastries on the island, a great cup of tea or coffee - and room service is taken care of as well.


WELLNESS & LEISURE

At the KEMPINSKI SPA at SAN LAWRENZ, guests can relax their bodies and minds, in one of the largest and best Ayurveda and Marine Care Centres in the Mediterranean.

A variety of Marine Therapies are available. These include Algae body wraps, balneo baths and peeling scrubs, facial treatments, refreshing Vichy showers, massages in the hydrojet tub, underwater massages, flash showers for stimulating circulation and many more. Apart from Thalgo products, which the hotel has been using since 1999, the luxurious treatments by the renowned Ligne St Barth are exclusively available at the Kempinski Spa San Lawrenz.

Guests can enjoy the heated indoor pool in a relaxed atmosphere or go to the steam baths or solarium. Furthermore, there is a Jacuzzi, 3 outdoor pools and an outdoor kids' pool.


AYURVEDA

"Health is purity, disease is impurity, purification is the treatment." The literal meaning of the word Ayurveda is "science of life". It is not only a science treating ailments and diseases, but it is a complete way of life to maintain good health. The concepts and practices are drawn from five thousand years of Indian wisdom, which are at your fingertips at the Kempinski Hotel San Lawrenz.

Our Ayurveda centre, the largest in the Mediterranean, is headed by a doctor qualified in Ayurveda medicine, assisted by professional staff, who are all originating from the birthplace of Ayurveda, the Kerala region in India.

Ayurvedic treatments include oil therapy, rejuvenation therapy, body slimming, aphrodisiac therapy, skin care, Panchakarma and other individual treatments from the Kerala region as well as therapies for mental well being.


FITNESS

For guests who seek more sportive activities, the facilities include a large, daylight fitness centre overlooking the garden and tennis courts with a full range of cardiovascular and strength resistance equipment as well as an extensive set of free weights.

Two floodlit tennis courts and 2 squash courts are complimentary for resort guests' use.


DIVING

A dive Centre gives the opportunity to discover the amazing underwater world of Gozo. The coastline is rich with harbours, inlets and coves between long stretches of cliffs.
Here, the Mediterranean Sea is at its richest, with abundant marine life, dramatic underwater scenery, caves, reefs, drop offs and visibility in excess of 40 metres. Gozo is known as the leading Mediterranean dive spot and diving is all year round with its amazing clear blue waters - a must for all divers.


GOZO KID'S CLUB

A variety of indoor activities including kids' and family pool are available as well as baby-sitting upon request.


OTHER SERVICES

The Kempinski Hotel San Lawrenz organises a variety of activities for its guests, such as island cruises and guided walking and cycling tours through the fascinating countryside. For those who would like to explore Gozo independently, we will be happy to assist with the rental of a car or scooter for delivery at the hotel.

We will be happy to organize the airport pick-up through our Limousine service.
