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.
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.
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.

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.

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.

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. Follow up your workout and shower with a dip in the pool or trip to the Spa, both available at Solana.
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 characters.
