Xara Palace Wedding | Relais & Chateaux Wedding Venue in Malta’s Silent City

Immersed in the unique charm afforded by centuries-old palatial settings in Mdina, Malta’s former capital city, wedding receptions at the The Xara Palace Hotel are equally romantic and lavish.

The Xara Palace Hotel offers a selection of multiple venues catering for party sizes ranging from the most intimate to a grand affair of 300 guests, and an option of both indoor and outdoor reception venues. The Xara Palace Hotel is a luxury boutique hotel built into the walls of the medieval city of Mdina, and promises a truly once-in-a-lifetime setting for the wedding of your dreams.

The most unique aspect of The Xara Palace Hotel is that it is situated in the medieval city of Mdina, boasting spectacular views of the island of Malta from the imposing bastion walls. The height of the venue, perched high above the beautiful surrounding countryside makes for a uniquely idyllic backdrop for a wedding.

Each wedding hosted by the The Xara Palace Hotel is as unique in its own way as the happy couple. The most memorable wedding in recent weeks for the talented team, was an Indian themed wedding which lasted 3 days. The Xara Palace Hotel and the adjoining Pjazza in Mdina was adorned with lots of bright colours, and the expert “in house” chefs prepared a lavish buffet style meal with their renowned flair and talent for a wide variety of cuisines. A wonderful experience alike for the wedding party, and the friendly team behind scenes.

Although Malta doesn’t have many days where it rains, The Xara Palace Hotel offers the convenience and luxury of having both indoor and outdoor spaces to avoid any possible problems.
