Welcome from the hotel's General Manager

Tonio Small gmAt the Xara Palace Relais and Chateaux, a unique hotel in Mdina, known as the Silent City, elegance, tradition and prestige are combined with hospitality which pays careful attention to the requirements of the guests. Our aim is to make you feel at home, ensuring you the efficiency of five-star service and a unique travel experience.

Being the only hotel in this medieval city, The Xara Palace Relais & Chateaux gives a great responsibility to the directors, management and staff to live up to the reputation of this enchanting and historical city. Since the Palace was built in the 17th century, it is important for all of us to manage this nobleman’s home sympathetically, both in terms of preserving the medieval grandeur and also in supplying the most modern technology and comfort for our guests.

Forming part of the prestigious Relais and Chateaux, my team and I need to live up to a vision that encourages a diversity of cuisine and hospitality, and a commitment to bring richness and added value to the history of hospitality.

At The Xara Palace Relais & Chateaux, we take pride in having been selected by world-leading travel specialists Gayot and featured on Fox News as one of the world’s top ten castle hotels that attracted visits by celebrities and Royalties such as Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Sharon Stone, Orlando Bloom, Jennifer Anniston, Bruce Willis, Joseph Calleja, Lucio Dalla, Prince Charles and a long list of VIPs, politicians, entrepreneurs, business leaders and other prominent figures.

Managing The Xara Palace Relais & Chateaux is an important, daily commitment for me, which also involves the constant training and motivation of my team, composed of people who work with passion.
