Joy Schaa Chance 28 October, 2022 Malta

Blessed with over 300 days of sunshine a year, Malta offers ideal set-ups to meet & dine outdoors, throughout most of the year. Not only do the hotels offer extensive outdoor areas, but also tucked away olive groves, vineyards, small estates, beach clubs, gardens, and rooftop terraces can be exclusively booked for groups to dine in Malta and meet outdoors.

As a Malta-based DMC our event managers are experts in sourcing the perfect venues for meeting and incentive groups; always ensuring our outdoor venues have equally adequate indoor facilities. Here are our top 5 dining venues this autumn season.
