The Kempinski San Lawrenz Hotel in Gozo was branded 'Malta's leading spa resort' in the 2010 Word Travel Awards, (considered the industry Oscars). And if that isn't reason enough to visit, just take a look: the palm trees, the azure pool, the elegant fascia; it's a dream spa.
Built in the traditional hunting lodge style, the Kempinski Spa Lawrenz Hotel is nestled away off the beaten track in its own little private world, amid acres of fields and garden. It is the perfect environment in which to relax.
Visiting the Kempinski San Lawrenz Hotel is a unique holiday experience given over to helping you to relax. The restaurants offer outstanding Mediterranean and light Maltese cuisine and La Trattoria, specialising in Italian cuisine. There is also a pool bar, café and lounge with a sundown cocktail terrace. The hotel is designed so that you can stay in and around it for a whole week, without ever needing to venture beyond the perimeter – there is just so much relaxing to be done here.
Every room is a delight; light and airy with exceptional décor and furnishings. Rooms are all fully air conditioned, but also come with a ceiling fan too for optimum comfort. With a wide range of facilities including satellite TV, internet access and safe deposit box, as well as supremely comfortable beds, you'll have the perfect place to ensure each day's relaxation ends with a good night's sleep. Two exceptional restaurants (each with their own ambience and character) offer a delectable range of authentic Maltese and Mediterranean fare. Additionally, you can enjoy an al fresco meal in the gazebo and look out over the gardens where the chef picks so many of the fresh, ingredients that you'll enjoy.
Complementing the restaurants are the superb, Colonial style bar with its glass topped tables and ornate features and the poolside bar with its ornate pillars and cool recesses.
Of course the main feature at the Kempinski San Lawrenz Hotel in Gozo is the spa itself. The Quintessence Spa provides a host of treatments for your inner peace and wellbeing, from aqua flow treatments and marine treatments to a transcendent four hand full body massage.
Give in to relaxation, give in to Gozo and fall in love with the Kempinski San Lawrenz Hotel.

The Kempinski never disappoints. From the pools, to the spa and to the hotel staff, the hotel truly lives up to its status and reputation of being one of the best five-star resorts in Malta.
We booked the Standard Room - which was more than enough space for two people...
It was quite spacious, with a lovely sitting area in the balcony.
The Kempinski is ideal for stay-cations - we spent most of our time lounging by the main pool. The spa treatments are also more than amazing. The Winter Energizer Massage worked us in all the right places and relieved much of the tension in my shoulders.
The only criticism that I have is that the indoor pool had to be booked for use in advance, due to the COVID-19 restrictions - even if the pool was evidently empty. The jacuzzi and the Hammam area of the spa are also decommissioned for the time being. Moreover, the cocktails and the food in the hotel are a bit pricey.
Other than this, our experience at the Kempinski was one for the books.
If you want to get floated away in a dreamland, then this is a perfect spot for you. The luxury property holds true to it's European flair and I could experience it in every moment of my stay. The rooms are excellent and the swimming pools were very well maintained...
The choice of F&B outlets is great and the service standards are beyond expectation. Special thanks to Damian and his entire F&B team for making my breakfasts, lunches, and dinners amazing. And heartfelt appreciation to the GM for the overall operations of the resort.
If you come here thinking it’s a 5 star luxury resort you will be very disappointed. The rooms are VERY basic, made worse by the fact that all soft furnishings have been removed due to Covid - yet not in the public areas: go figure! We booked a junior suite but honestly I wish I hadn’t. It’s just a larger room with a coffee table and stained sofa...
No bigger than a standard hotel room in most hotels. The hard furniture (desk, cupboards, etc) have seen better days and are scuffed and marked. The toiletries are basic too. The only positive is that it’s very clean. Pool area in need of some TLC and pool loungers have seen better days. I have waited over a year for a week in the sun and paid good money to be here but I feel like I have been taken for a mug! Not what I would have expected of the Kempinski brand and won’t be rushing to one of their hotels any time soon.
Both the hotel and spa are excellent. Our two week holiday did have a couple of issues, they are not worth mentioning as the way everything was resolved and dealt with by the staff and management was befitting of the 5 star status. Food was good however Tmun in Mgarr beats everywhere hands down...
The spa was a highlight of the two weeks, 7 days of treatments left both of us feeling more relaxed than we have been for a very long time. I can’t recommend it enough.
Our stay was absolutely amazing. I will keep it short because my review will be a long gush review LOL.
The moment we stepped in everyone was so welcoming...
I could not find my passport and I totally forgot the pin code of my CC. I kept apologizing. Julie (at the reception) was so sweet.
I am lactose and gluten intolerant (forever cursed LOL). I felt so included dining and also having breakkie. I ate my first Maltese gluten free pasta at the L'Ortolan restaurant.
Pool was amazing. The garden is so cute. The staff is so polite. We (hubz and I) felt so relax. Room was clean. The maintenance lady did a great job.
Only a recommendation: Please include more gluten free pasta dishes.
Thank you guys so much. See you soon.
