Lobby Bar
Great for after-work drinks and lunch meetings.
Solana greets all guests with a welcome drink when they arrive. Whether it’s a quick meeting with a colleague or a casual catch-up with a friend, we’ve redesigned the lobby into a welcoming place for people to get together. The artful lamps turn the lobby into a stylish cafe. So go ahead and order an espresso or spritz from the lobby bar and make yourself cosy on one of the plush sofas. The bar serves light refreshments and snacks during the day, and pre-dinner cocktails and nightcaps in the evening. Make this your first and last stop at Solana.
Bellini Restaurant
The best choice for large parties and events.
The main restaurant is also our guests’ favourite restaurant for social events and conferences. The well-lit, buffet-style venue seats 160 people as well as an additional 50 on the outdoor terrace. Outdoor diners have the chance to enjoy a spectacular view over the valley. In the morning, hotel guests are treated to a full continental and English breakfast. In the evening, Bellini serves themed dinners that change daily. The restaurant also serves lunch when required, and can specifically cater to your special event. We want all our guests to have the option of enjoying Bellini, which is why we made it fully accessible for all levels of mobility (including WCs) and we also have a play area for kids.
Tosca Restaurant
All your Italian favourites.
If you love authentic Italian food, you’ll love Tosca. This award-winning restaurant serves all the Italian classics, plus daily specialities and fresh seafood. Open in the evenings, you can wine and dine inside or on the veranda. 
Escape the city and enjoy cocktails in style at the Top Deck.
When the weather gets warm, we’re delighted to open the poolside bar. Located right next to the rooftop pool, the pool bar serves cocktails, aperitifs, and nightcaps. Solana’s rooftop, an oasis in the centre of Mellieħa village, is Malta’s best kept hidden gem. Here you’ll be elevated from the hustle and bustle of the village streets, whether you’re floating in the pool or lounging on the terrace under an umbrella.


Panoramic Pool & Sundeck
Solana’s rooftop pool offers impeccable views of the sea and Malta’s sister islands, while the outdoor lounge area offers shade under the umbrellas. Swim over to the seasonal bar where you can order beverages without ever leaving the pool. A drink in hand is a nice accompaniment to a stunning sunset over Mellieħa.     
Heated Indoor Pool
The Solana Hotel boasts a large indoor leisure area. The primary attraction is undoubtebly the indoor heated pool but guests can also enjoy a sauna and the services of Nataraya Spa & Wellness Centre.
Fitness Centre
Exercise on your own in our modest fitness centre, outfitted with a variety of machines and free weights. All hotel guests have complimentary use of the gym. We keep our fitness facility well-maintained so you can stay in shape, even when you’re travelling.

Points of Interest

Mellieha was once an isolated 15th century hamlet perched on the ridge overlooking Ghadira Bay. Re-inhabited in the early 18th century, it has since developed into a flourishing town though it retains a quaint historic centre with narrow streets and stepped alleys. From the terrace of the Parish Church, there is a panoramic view over Mellieha Bay and the surrounding countryside. Mellieha today is a modern town noted for its large private villas and houses which have been built on land overlooking the bay. While the town has developed into a resort, it has managed to retain some of its rural character.
  • Located in the centre of the village of Mellieha.
  • Local bus connections to Valletta  – 2 minutes from the hotel.
  • Malta’s largest bay called ‘Ghadira bay’ is located 1 Km from the Solana Pergola hotel.
  • Bus connections to the beach – 2 minutes from the hotel.



Nataraya Day Spa & Wellness

Or indulge in our spa packages, which include holistic therapies, massage, facials, and hydrotherapy. A full body massage is a wonderful way to pamper yourself after a day exploring Malta. At Nataraya Day Spa & Wellness, an oasis of tranquillity and rejuvenation await.
Nataraya Spa in Mellieħa has set the benchmark for extraordinary luxury day spa experiences.  Our singular focus is on creating a tranquil haven for you to rejuvenate your mind, body and spirit.
Using only the finest organic ingredients, our therapeutic treatments renew wellness and encourage complete relaxation. Whether you’re looking for some “me time”, planning a spa party, spoiling a mother-to-be, or thinking of a couple’s treatment, our highly qualified spa professionals will guide you through a journey created especially for you.
From our indoor pool, chromotherapy hydro bath, and beautifully appointed treatment rooms to our serene relaxation lounge and gardens, Nataraya Spa provides a sanctuary in the heart of the Maltese Islands, for you to enjoy peace and tranquillity.
It’s so much more than a treatment. Nataraya is an unforgettable experience in the heart of Mellieħa with divinely restorative results.
The Sauna at Nataraya can be used as a means of calming the body and relieving stress and is well known for its many health benefits. For those new to the experience, our sauna is a dry heat that’s best enjoyed between 70-90 degrees., humidity in the dry sauna is set less than 5%. This type of heat increases the body's core temperature. Sweating is encouraged which releases impurities from the skin and pores.
Chromotherapy Hydro Bath
Chromotherapy (or colour therapy as it’s often called) involves the use of colour and light to stimulate wellbeing. Different colours and shades have varying wavelengths and significance. Each colour on the spectrum will have its own effect on the body, mind and emotions. While the exact origins of chromotherapy are lost in time, there are records of colour being used as therapy in several civilizations around the world. In ancient Egypt, Greece and India, colours were used to heal different ailments; ayurvedic medicine, for example, associates different shades with the body’s seven energy centres, or chakras. Why not take a dip in our chromotherapy hydro bath during your spa visit
