La Maltese is a luxurious cliffside villa 800 feet above the sea. It is fairly new boutique hotel in comparison to some of the other hotels (it opened in 2005) but is just as appealing.
Horseback riding, sailing, water-skiing, diving, boat trips, volcano excursions, spa, sauna - all are available to guests and there is a stunning outdoor pool with glorious views.
Many guests who have stayed in other small boutique hotels on the island say that La Maltese has by far the best food. Not a huge choice..but the quality is exceptional.
