The Xara Palace, now a family-run, exclusive, boutique Hotel, originally served as a residence for the noble family Moscati Parisio. It was used by the British during the war. In 1996, the property was bought by the Zammit Tabona family with a vision to restore the building to its former glory, and for the delight of discerning visitors, to create a unique hotel experience, previously unavailable on the Maltese Islands. The Xara Palace is a magical place of charm, character and calm, a haven to the senses.
