Le Meridien in Balluta Bay, St Julians, has a few restaurants attached to it, including the well-regarded Villa Brasserie. Likewise the Westin Dragonara in St Julians.
Importantly, you can earn Starwood Preferred Guest points at these restaurants without needing to be a guest at the hotel. This is unlike, for example, the Hilton, where you specifically need to be a hotel guest to earn HHonors points on restaurant purchases.
Points are earned at the rate of 1 per USD $1 equivalent spent.
Finally, if you fancy the Le Meridien hotel for a Malta break, it currently has the two following offers:
- 20% off 3+ night stays booked before May 31, 2013 for stays completed before August 31, 2013.
- 30% off 7+ night stays booked before April 30, 2013 for stays completed before August 31, 2013.
