Serandipians will welcome VisitMalta to the network as a new Preferred Destination Partner as of January 2024. The Maltese Islands, set in the middle of the Mediterranean, are a treasure trove of history and culture, and present visitors with an opportunity to immerse themselves in centuries of history while enjoying the very best of modern facilities.
“It is a perfect destination for Serandipians Member Travel Designers’ clients, who are keen explorers of luxury through nature, arts and culture,” said Quentin Desurmont, CEO and Founder of Serandipians. “We are privileged to be facilitators of such serendipitous discoveries.”
With spectacular views over the Grand Harbour, boutique hotels beaming with character, and Michelin-starred restaurants, the capital city of Valletta is the place to be for both history buffs and foodies. It also gets a seal of approval as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Malta has great global connectivity and can be reached within three hours from Europe’s major capital cities. Private jet companies offer exclusive, tailored services meeting clients’ specific aviation requirements.
The Maltese Islands are blessed with crystal clear sea, inviting watersports and boating aficionados to enjoy the refreshing waters and the panoramic views. Whether it’s on a vintage schooner or a high-tech superyacht, translucent Maltese waters are an invitation to relax and have a dip. A yacht charter is a wonderful way to view the pretty coves and rocky cliffs of the Islands, whilst one may also enjoy activities such as Stand-up paddling, kayaking, jet-skiing, windsurfing, and more. The country is also popular for the wintering of boats due to its unbeatable climate and a joie de vivre approach.
Gastronomy in the Maltese Islands is both a delight and an adventure. It’s a true reflection of the Islands’ 7,000 years of history, with influences from the Arabs, Phoenicians, French, British, and of course the Mediterranean. From traditional dishes to modern and international cuisine, idyllic settings offer a special backdrop. Whether it’s the breath-taking sea views, charming traditional courtyards or stately homes, it makes the food taste even better and a memory more cherished.
For those in search of an inner cleanse and a mental break, nothing beats Gozo, Malta’s sister island which is reached within a 25-minute ferry ride. Gozo has retained its authenticity and adopts a slower pace of life. It offers both the beautiful natural beauty and like Malta, some incredible well-preserved ancient history. Typical characterful villas are the most popular accommodation in Gozo, where guests may enjoy the view, hire a masseur, or a private chef. Outdoors, one may enjoy countryside walks, outdoor yoga sessions, snorkelling in the waters and rock climbing for the more adventurous. In particular however, scuba diving in Gozo is first class.
“We are excited and proud to be joining Serandipians,” said Christophe Berger, Director VisitMalta Incentives & Meetings.
“The Maltese Islands are incredible and deserve to join this high-end network of suppliers and destinations. The Islands pack in more than anyone would think, especially when it comes to history and heritage, culture, and anything to do with the marvellous waters, be it yachting, diving, snorkelling, and any kind of watersports.
“Infrastructure on the islands continues to grow, with some prestigious international brands in the pipeline. We look forward to developing our relationship with Serandipians while continuing to expand the luxury tourism sector in Malta.”
Born in Europe as Traveller Made, the network rebranded to Serandipians in 2021 and gathers now over 530 travel-designer agencies in more than 74 countries around the world, making it the most international luxury travel network community. In addition, over 1,200 luxury travel purveyors such as hotels and resorts, villas, yachts and destination management companies, as well as beautiful destinations come to complete its portfolio.
