Certain products can even be ordered in our webshop with even faster delivery and turn times.

ON BOARD SPA SERVICES
No longer dream of drifting off when you arrive in Malta’s Grand Harbour. We can help you with fantastic spa treatments performed on the comfort of your yacht. Our Forbidden City® trained therapists deliver our signature services with utter discretion, care and skill. Using the finest anti-ageing therapies from our Creating Longevity® and SkyLab® lines, we will help to relief all of life tensions and stresses at the end or beginning of your yachting season.
In addition, our spa services can be booked as a way of saying thank you to your hardworking crew who may just deserve some pampering themselves after a summer on the Med. We require 12 hours advance notice to book an appointment in any of the Three Cities Marinas or 24 hours notice to book an appointment in the Port Tomasso or Gozo Marinas.
SPECIALITY SWISS & NORDIC PRODUCTS
For the favored few who understand the particularities of SwissTaste, we proudly present our curated selection of Swiss wines. These vintages represent the best of the best. Produced in small, family estates in Ticino and Valais, like all things Swiss, you will discover one-of-a-kind wines, fantastic quality and of course best of all, memories of one of the most beautiful countries in the world with every sip.
Known for our ability to source the best of the best from around the world, we closely align our SwissTaste philosophy with many nordic delicacies. One such delicacy is artisanal and handmade Estonian black bread. Working with our partner bakers in Estonia, we fly in this bread from Tallinn via UPS overnight courier in specially designed containers to preserve its freshness. While our pursuit of quality may seem overboard, for us, it’s just another day in the life of SwissTaste.
We welcome you to discover our hand picked delicacies, wines and other delectable treats that bring you much enjoyment in the Mediterranean. In our online shop, you can enjoy free delivery in Malta on orders over EUR200.00 and free local pickup at our location only minutes away from Luqa Airport.
