Join us for some early Winter Sun as we head off to Malta

A beautiful LGBTQ holiday destination, nestled deep in the heart of the
Mediterranean, Mythical, magical Malta!

A beautiful island located in the Mediterranean – due to a
succession of rulers from the Romans & Moors, Knights of Saint John, the French and
British Malta is renowned for its fascinating historic sites. The island’s countryside is
dotted with medieval towers, small chapels and the oldest known human structures in
the world. The Island (including Gozo and Comino) have rightly been described as an
open-air museum. With its sunny weather, attractive beach and thriving nightlife and
7,000 years of incredible history makes our holiday a must do for this October.
We kick off the holiday with our hosted group dinner, a great way to meet everyone in
the group.

During the week we will take you on 3 excursions around the island. Don’t
worry though, there will be plenty of time to explore the surrounding area, relax by the
pool or on the beach or pamper yourself with a spa treatment (or two!) located within
the adjacent Corinthia St. George’s Bay. With a wide selection of relaxation therapies, as
well as a sauna, indoor pool, and Jacuzzi, the Spa offers the ultimate pampering
experience.
We take meals together in local restaurants, go on excursions together and have a whole
lot of fun along the way. We keep on saying it but our holidays really are all about
community and sharing a wonderful holiday experience. At the end of the week, we say
our fond farewells at our hosted group dinner. It’s always the hardest part of the holiday
but we know you’ll be going home having had a fantastic holiday and formed firm
friendships for life!

Travelling Solo? We know the thought of going on a group holiday alone can be
daunting. Let’s start by saying that all the women who have taken that extra leap to
book on one of our group holidays have not regretted it, and for some it has even
transformed their lives.
The first step is to pick up the phone and talk to one of Diva Destinations friendly staff
members, who will give you as much time as you need to talk through the holiday,
telling you what to expect and stories of our adventures; we can also answer any
questions. By the end of the call we feel sure you’ll feel less apprehensive AND …. ready
to think about booking.  We never wish to pressurise anyone and are happy to have
further conversations as needed.
The second step is the holiday itself and our Diva Destinations host is with the group
throughout the time, making it easy for you to relax and socialise; and to ensure
there will always be somebody to share your holiday moments with. You can dip in and
out of activities as you please. Flexibility is important and remember it’s your holiday so
you should feel free to spend your time entirely as you wish.
The main questions… We’ve hosted holidays now for the past 5 years and every year
the main questions we’re asked are ‘Will I fit in?’ ‘Am I too old?’  The answer to those
questions is YES and NO. We always have a great mix of women of all ages, from all
walks of life and with a range of interests; but with one common interest – to meet members of our community in a relaxed and friendly environment and enjoy a wonderful
holiday

Your Hosts

Jen & Caron from Diva Destinations have over 25 years’ experience in the travel industry
and hosting our group tours. Jen founded Diva Destinations in 2013 and quickly realised
there was a need for a travel company to bring queer women and those who are non-
binary together in a relaxed and friendly way while enjoying an amazing holiday, forming
lasting memories and new found friendships. Caron joined the business in 2017. As a
host she thrives on bringing people together and enabling the intrepid traveller to be
unleashed in all of us. Oh, and by the way Caron is a pretty good golfer!! She run GIGS
(Girls in Golf Society) so if you fancy joining take a look at their website.

T&C’s

We do require a minimum number to run our trips. Therefore, in the unlikely event we
don’t reach our minimum numbers we will reimburse your deposit in full. In the
meantime, we request that you don’t make any arrangements for the trip including train
travel, car parking etc until we guarantee our holiday.

Accessibility

The hotel has limited availability of full wheelchair accessible rooms therefore, we kindly
ask you to send us your requirements so we can prepare the hotel and block the room
for you. The hotel is 5 minutes away from the sandy beach of St. George’s Bay (outside
hotel premises) which can be reached via the spacious public sideways which are
wheelchair accessible.
