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.

Enjoy 5-star luxury at The Xara Palace Relais & Chateaux, a 17th-century building set right in Mdina's mediaeval walls. The property features unique and exclusive rooms. The Xara Palace Relais & Chateaux provides accommodation with views over Malta and the Mediterranean Sea. Interiors feature antique furniture and original paintings. Some rooms come with a terrace and hot tub or are set on 2 levels with a lounge. All have DVD and CD players, iPad and iPod docking stations and free WiFi. Mdina's monuments, museums and Roman villas are just a few steps away from The Xara Palace Relais & Chateaux. Buses leave from nearby and travel across the island. Work out in The Xara Palace Relais & Chateaux small gym and follow up with a relaxing sauna before heading to the De Mondion Gourmet Restaurant or the more casual Trattoria AD 1530 for dinner.
