"A beautiful & confident home full of thoughtful, well designed features... We felt welcome from the word go."

Gay friendly Malta

We celebrate the fact that in these last few years there has been a revolution on this little island. In October 2015, ILGA-Europe ranked Malta 1st in terms of LGBT rights out of 49 observed European countries. After introducing civil partnership in 2014, the country has also legalised same-sex marriage in 2017.

Embraced by history

What is it that makes an accommodation LGBTQIA friendly? Is it the stylish interiors, is it the colourful fabrics? As a gay couple, the thing which makes us feel most welcome on our travels is the knowledge that we don't need to explain or justify who we are, and that our hosts welcome us with open arms.

Gay friendly holiday rental

As a gay couple, we understand that need because we've been there. Frankly, we feel that the world is fascinating precisely because of diversity. What a dull world it would be otherwise.

This 16th Century townhouse is also unique, refurbished with original pieces, dare we say with a touch of eccentricity. Its 400 year history will embrace you and whisper stories of past guests, each one individual a distinctive soul, some, who knows, perhaps even mavericks who questioned status quo - the Inquisitor's Palace is only a stone's throw away. If you allow it, Indulgence Divine is sure to offer you spaces to discover, a sanctuary to revel in. See more pictures and information on the house.

"Gayägda mysiga och generöst planerade privatägda två-persons-lägenheter i Vittoriosa med egensinnigt vacker inredning."


Well, your holiday is what you make it – we can’t move the mountains for you – but we have made all that is possible to make the environment conducive to luuurve!

Where else would you find a double bed topped by a romantic canopy featuring Hieronymus Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights in a room that used to be the house chapel of a 450 year old townhouse. We’ve also installed a double shower in an en-suite with sensuous curvy lines for... well you know, wherever your imagination might take you. 

The island’s pleasant weather will entice you upstairs to your very own roof terrace to enjoy an evening drink under the stars when you decide to stay put.

Going to town

You'd want a unique accommodation to share with your partner and Indulgence Divine fits the bill, but location is as important part of the package.

The walled city of Vittoriosa is small in size but there's nothing bijou about its history. When its first settlers, the Pheonicians, built a temple to their chief female deity Astarte, its name was Birgu. Only after the Knights of the Order of St John made it their home in 1530 for its proximity to the harbour, and consequently won a war against the mighty Ottoman Empire (The Great Siege - 1565), did Birgu also become known as Vittoriosa - the victorious. Indulgence Divine is situated right behind the Inquisitor's Palace and close to the exclusive yacht marina. Click for more info.

Saturday 10th September 2022 – Pride Day celebrations will include a Pride Parade with the participation of floats, dancers, street performers and several other attractions. The Malta Pride parade route typically kicks off at The Triton Fountain just outside Valletta Gate, and then proceeds through the city streets.

An free open air street party and concert follows in the evening, with other private parties happening elsewhere late in the night.

Staying at Indulgence Divine in Birgu means you'll only be a 15 minute ferry away, while enjoying the beautiful town of Birgu.
