The Tal Fanal Apartments are located in the sleepy hamlet of Ghasri towards the North West coast of Gozo. The locality of Ghasri is Gozo's smallest village, ensuring that guests enjoy a relaxing holiday in a typical village environment.
The Complex of Tal Fanal is built around a large central pool area which includes extensive sun terraces providing enough sunbeds and sun umbrellas to cater for all guests of the complex. The complex is set in a garden theme and is adorned with numerous plants and palm trees.
The atmosphere of the complex has been designed for total relaxation and tranquillity and so, therefore, the hotel does not offer a range of leisure facilities such as fitness rooms or health centres. Such facilities are within easy reach of Tal Fanal, and guests who choose to rent a car during their time at the complex will find that there are lots of available parking spaces around the complex.
The Tal Fanal Complex does not have its own restaurant however Gozo is very popular for its local restaurants serving a selection of traditional Gozitan and International cuisines. Restaurants in the coastal villages such as Xlendi or Marsalforn specialize in serving some of the finest fish dishes caught in the Mediterranean. Restaurants that are particularly recommended for their fine cuisine are ‘Ta Frenc’ or ‘Il Mina’.
Gozo can be explored on foot, by bicycle or using local buses which all depart from the main terminal in Victoria.
Gozo is renowned as the mythical island of Calypso, who drew Homer's hero Ulysses to its shores for a seven-year hiatus. Though there are only five kilometres of sea between Malta and Gozo, the islands are distinctly different from each other. Gozo is a third of the size of Malta, more rural and tranquil, greener, less bustling but still full of life. While authentic houses of character have been renovated to suit the most exigent contemporary clients are the speciality of Gozo, the Island also has luxurious hotels. The size and natural setting of the island conspire to make it a prime location for high-powered board meetings, small conferences, workshops and incentives. Gozo is a must-visit location. It is almost always included in leisure-time arrangements. It is particularly renowned for active day tours and outdoor events. Moreover, the island is a conference and incentive destination in its own right, and has the facilities to prove it.
Ghasri is the smallest village on Gozo and therefore is quite remote from the main centres on Gozo. Guests who wish to enjoy the island to its full potential are recommended to consider a period of car hire. The apartments are only a few minutes drive from the locality of Dwejra, home to the famous ‘Azure window’ and ‘Inland sea’. Boat trips can be taken around the coast to see the corals by the window. Ramla Bay is Gozo’s largest beach and is watched over by ‘Calypso’s’ cave.
