Ta Cenc Hotel and Spa

Malta and Gozo, Europe

Ta Cenc Hotel and Spa is an island paradise within an island paradise. Set amongst 400 acres of beautiful grounds on the island of Gozo, Ta Cenc Hotel and Spa occupies its own private realm looking down over Gozo and across to Malta and Comino.

Built in keeping with the traditional local style, Ta Cenc Hotel and Spa is unlike any other hotel in Gozo or Malta. It is designed for your complete and utter relaxation; five star luxury is a way of life here.

Five star luxury at Gozo's island paradise – the Ta Cenc Hotel and Spa:

Built on Gozo's highest point, the Ta Cenc Hotel and Spa affords unparalleled views. From this vantage point, you really do feel unencumbered by life's day-to-day worries. All that matters is the clean air, the astonishing landscape and the soothing rays of the sun. Peace and tranquillity reign. If ever a holiday could offer a transcendent experience, this is it.

In keeping with the local style, Ta Cenc Hotel and Spa is tastefully furnished – with lots of real wood and local stone, reinforcing that feeling of being at one with nature. Guest rooms are tastefully appointed, but come with all the modern facilities you'd expect, including cable TV, radio, telephone, minibar / fridge and cooling system. You will also enjoy your own private terrace or garden – just ask for more details.

For many, the spa itself will be the main attraction. In its indoor and outdoor heated pools, its sauna and steam bath, you can luxuriate in peace and quiet and savour each moment. To ensure every single care is lifted off your shoulders, the wellness centre also offers a Jacuzzi and massage service. (While those looking to get sporty can enjoy the gym and tennis courts.)

With all of Gozo stretched out below you, there is so much to experience and enjoy. But you may find that a week isn't even long enough to fully enjoy the Ta Cenc Hotel and its own surroundings, let alone Gozo. Still, with a superb hotel restaurant and extensive entertainment facilities, there isn't really any necessity to leave the hotel if you don't want to.

Visitors to the Ta Cenc Hotel and Spa enjoy a particularly special kind of holiday ambience and a unique sense of tranquillity that is very hard to resist.

Disappointing mini holiday!

Review by TerenceV88 Zejtun, Malta

We were very excited to come visit this hotel for the very first time from the 2nd to 6th of June in order to celebrate our third wedding anniversary, however it turned out to be disappointing for several reasons:

  1. Lack of hygiene and COVID19 measures
  • lack of cleanliness especially in the rooms and pool area, sunbeds were old and required deep cleaning. We never saw any poolboy disinfecting them after use;
  • at breakfast the tables were cleaned with just a damp cloth, used over and over again for all tables with no disinfection whatsoever;
  • Although at the reception there is a sign to wait for the temperature to be checked we were kept waiting and no one checked our temperature or whether we sanitized our hands;
  • At the spa we made an appointment to schedule a time slot, but when we went there no one was present at the reception....

hence anyone could enter thus breaching the maximum capacity of the spa allowed in these pandemic circumstances;

  1. Disorganization
  • During our four night stay we were never served our breakfast as ordered, there was either something missing or either one of us kept waiting (more than 20mins) while the other eats;
  • Most of the servers were clueless and with insufficient training on how to carry out basic hospitality duties.
  • We were also informed that the kitchen was short staffed, only one chef on a Sunday morning over a long weekend!
  • When we were at the beach Lido no one welcomed us to see if we were hotel guests and show us the way, so we went ahead and chose two sunbeds with an umbrella. After more than an hour using them, a server came with other hotel guests and told us to move because they were booked. The server did not even excuse himself for not informing us that the sunbeds were booked and did not provide alternative sunbeds. We had to find other sunbeds and bring and set up the umbrella ourselves.
  1. Others
  • Room had broken items such as lamp and furniture;
  • Hotel in general, especially the rooms requires a major refurbishment as it seem to be stuck in a time capsule;
  • Although the breakfast food was decent, variety is very limited for a 5 star hotel;
  • The drain overflowed into the yard after taking a shower;
  • Wifi was not stable.

We understand that the hotel might be experiencing harder times due to the pandemic but still, the above mentioned points are not what one expects from a 5 star hotel which is one of the most expensive ones on the island. We had to try very hard to enjoy ourselves on our wedding anniversary hotel break and not let it affect us negatively.

It is very unfortunate because with some tender, love and care and proper upkeep the hotel would turn into a gem since the location, scenery and garden are beautiful and it offers peace and quiet that no other hotel in Malta and Gozo offers.
