Gozo’s newest 5* resort, the Kempinski San Lawrenz Resort offers everything that a luxury spa resort should. Recently voted amongst Europe’s top destination hotels.
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.
The village of San Lawrenz, like most villages on Gozo is small and friendly although it can be quite remote from the main centres and popular sites on Gozo. This provides plenty of privacy for guests, however, it also means that guests who do like to enjoy the island to its full potential are recommended to consider a period of car hire. The most famous of the sites on Gozo is the ‘Azure Window’ and ‘Inland sea’ which is only a short distance from the Kempinski resort. 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.
