The digital nomad lifestyle, where individuals work remotely and embrace a location-independent way of life, is becoming increasingly popular. Malta, a Mediterranean island country, is at the forefront of this movement. Boasting stunning landscapes, a rich cultural heritage, and a digital nomad visa option for South Africans, Malta has become a sought-after destination for those seeking a unique and flexible lifestyle.
To further attract digital nomads, AC Hotels by Marriott has recently opened its first property on the island – the AC Hotel by Marriott St. Julian’s. Strategically situated in the coastal town of St. Julian’s, the hotel provides convenient access to beaches, restaurants, and the historic capital city of Valletta.
The AC Hotel by Marriott St. Julian’s offers 106 contemporary guest rooms and suites, carefully designed to meet the needs of telecommuters. Each room is equipped with plush bedding for a comfortable night’s sleep, Nespresso machines to satisfy the need for caffeine, and an ergonomic workspace for uninterrupted productivity.
During leisurely moments between remote meetings, digital nomads can unwind at the AC Lounge on the rooftop terrace, taking in the breathtaking views of St. Julian’s skyline while enjoying cocktails. The rooftop area also features a heated pool, providing a perfect oasis for relaxation after a productive day.
The hotel strives to maintain a balance between work and lifestyle amenities. It offers an indoor pool and a well-equipped gym with state-of-the-art Matrix equipment, catering to the overall wellbeing of digital nomads. Whether one desires a rejuvenating swim or an invigorating workout, the hotel ensures a fulfilling experience.
South Africans with a digital nomad visa can reside and work in Malta for up to a year, allowing ample time to explore and appreciate the picturesque beauty of the island.
