After a barbeque, sip on a digestif and relax in the bubbling five-seater hot tub. Alternatively, sink into the plush sofas and switch on Netflix.

Four well-appointed bedrooms await you. The first bedroom has a comfortable king-sized bed and a floor-to-ceiling door that leads out onto the large terrace.

Ramla Retreat is situated on the small island of Gozo, set in the heart of the Maltese Mediterranean Sea. There is no international airport on Gozo – something which makes this island feel all the more remote and tranquil. Guests are advised to fly to Malta, and then hop on the short and frequent ferry to reach Gozo.

Ramla Retreat can be located on the outskirts of the quaint village, Xaghra and 3.6 km east of Gozo’s capital, Victoria. Siting above the beautiful Ramla Bay and just a stones throw away from the UNESCO and World Heritage Site, Ggantija – this apartment is in the perfect location. Not to mention all the main amenities are within walking distance.

Whist the island of Gozo is only seven kilometres long, and just over thirteen kilometres wide, there will be something for everyone. Whether its historical sites, fortifications, ruins, and castles, religious churches, chapels, convents, and monasteries, nature’s trails and treks amongst the natural flora and fauna, city sightseeing and shopping, sampling the best of the local homegrown cuisine, or simply sunbathing on of its many golden sandy beaches, you’ll always be spoilt for choice in Gozo. To explore the treasures found on this island, a car is perhaps your best bet.

Enjoy the slower pace of life and soak up the Gozitan sun. Crystal clear waters can be found at each beach and cove, enticing you into the serene waters. Spend the days swimming, snorkelling or even diving. In fact, Gozo is known as a popular diving spot, great for first timers and experienced divers too. Swim with schools of colourful fish through the networks of undersea caves and sunken WWII bombers! Families with young children will enjoy the nearby infamous Rambla Bay, featuring long stretches of striking red sands, set against craggy cliffs with lifeguards for safety. Options for water sports are never ending… paddleboarding, kayaking, tubing, wakeboarding or water-skiing!

There are some great hikes on Gozo that let you see the peaceful countryside, peppered with remarkable geological features begging to be explored. Enjoy the hike from Xaghra to Rambla Bay or challenge yourselves and hike up to the Sanap Cliffs. Each hike is bound to reward you with captivating views. Afterwards, find a spot to eat some delicious, fresh Gozitan food. The locals are well known for their incredible hospitality, encouraging visitors to come back time and time again.
With natural wonders, ancient ruins and delicious food, there is something for every guest – it truly is the perfect holiday destination!

Known for its clear, shallow waters, this is another perfect option for young children. Or, for the more adventurous, snorkelling or diving are popular activities at Xlendi Beach!

Experience the thrill of an action-packed holiday and go mountain biking, kayaking, clifftop hiking and even horse riding! Alternatively, embrace the history, culture and stories that entertain young and adults alike. Visit the megalithic temples at Ġgantija, and the recently restored Il-Kastell fortress towering above the capital of Gozo, Victoria!

For a more laid-back adventure, take a boat ride and tour the coast. You can get to dive and swim at many idyllic spots or you can opt to sail out to Comino, the island that captures the imagination of many. If you’re interested in exploring the island we suggest that you plan a day and return to Gozo at sunset.

Reviews

  • Excellent stay!

    on 31/08/2023

    Accommodation suitable for a large group of people (8 people for us), very spacious. Complete amenities, despite the fact that the pool is shared, we have been able to enjoy it as a wish, the hot tub is a real plus. Bedrooms, very modern bathroom. Comfortable beds. Excellent stay, we recommend.

  • Very good

    on 18/08/2022

    One of the best places that we have stayed in. It is even better than the pictures, amazing host. If I come back to this area I will definitely be staying here.

  • Worth a visit

    on 10/08/2022

    This was a restful Oasis in Gozo. We enjoyed the hot tub and the house and visited the beach at Ramla bay. If you visit Malta, this place is a must.
