About the Area

The Neighborhood

Salini is a village in Malta. The borders of Salini are Baħar Iċ-Ċagħaq, Magħtab, Naxxar and St. Paul's Bay. Salini is mostly known for its salt pans and the Salini Catacombs. The word salini means salt pans in (website hidden). Paul's Bay is a town in Malta, situated in the north east of the island of Malta, sixteen kilometers from the capital city Valletta. Its name refers to the shipwreck of Saint Paul. (According to the Bible, St. Paul was shipwrecked on an island which many scholars have identified as Malta on his voyage from Caesarea to Rome. The Maltese people believe that it was St. Paul who laid the foundations of Christianity on the island.)

The town is a modern tourist area - especially Qawra and Bugibba are popular nearby Salini. There are also some very pretty natural highlights close by. Heading north there is Mistra Bay, its headland and St Paul's Island. Going west and crossing the island towards Ġnejna Bay and Golden Bay is the scenic Wardija Ridge. Misrah Ghar il-Kbir (informally known as Clapham Junction) is a prehistoric site in Malta near the Dingli Cliffs. It is best known for its "cart ruts" (A complex network of tracks gouged in the rock. The age and purpose of the tracks are still a mystery of Maltese history. In general, most archaeologists presume that the site developed about 2000 BC after new settlers came over from Sicily to start the Bronze Age in Malta.).
Malta is a small island in the Mediterranean but it has a lot to offer: culture, history, beaches, nightlife, diving, etc. Here in St. Paul's Bay you can find all of these.

We live in the district of St Paul's Bay were you can find Malta National Aquarium, Beaches, Beach Clubs, Cinema, Bars, Restaurants, Shops, Diving Centres, Bus stops - Practically everything is within a short walking distance.

    Five stars are not enough to express how much we loved our stay with Ray!
    Ray is one of the greatest guys we have ever met - he is kind, polite and attentive - has great stories from all around the world. He was very helpful, suggested us places to go. Always asked if we had everything we needed in the flat.
    We stayed for more than a week, all was great, the room was clean and comfortable. The flat has everything you would need and expect from a bnb (kitchen, washing machine etc.), plus you can ask for beachtowels as well.
    The place is very close to a lovely restaurant where we spent several evenings and mornings for breakfast. The food and the people are great there too!
    You can also find a small grocery shop (where you can buy a pass for malta public transport) and the bus stops nearby as well. There is even a tiny beach close where we could hang out.
    We had an amazing time there. And we can only encourage everyone to stay at Ray's. He made our Malta Experience even greater.
    Thank you, Ray, for everything, next time we will try to bring some pálinka! ;)

    I stayed for 16 weeks at BNB Lodge and it was a great experience!
    The apartments were tidy and clean. Ray and Petra were always very helpful and nice. The BNB Lodge is also close to beautiful beaches like Golden Bay Beach or Melliah Bay Beach. The price-performance ratio is good. For shopping you can head for the small convenience store around the corner or for Bugibba within 10-15 min by foot.
    All in all a very pleasant stay in Salina. Thank you a lot!

    Not everything is as beautiful as described in the announcement. Not far from the apartment is a duck farm, and in the evenings there was a terrible smell, it was impossible to sleep. Bed linen smelled of washing powder, from which my wife had an allergy. Petra promised to wash it, but just beautifully folded the linens like it was, and left. Finally, my wife washed the bed linens in the bath herself. Neighbors told us that the whole kitchen was flooded with water and from this furniture and utensils has a bad smells. The hosts behaved unfriendly, sometimes even - impertinent and unpleasant. As for the room - to this we had no special complaints - everything more or less correspond to the photos. In general, think carefully before booking their rooms.

    Dear Ivan,
    Thank you for your unpleasant review! First of all when you did the booking to stay in our lovely place with over 500 satisfied guests that stayed with us in the four years that we opened this lodge. It is also a normal practice that if your wife suffer from some kind of allergy you would tell us before your arrival like normal guests do. We don't wash our linen with any washing powder, but with hotel hygiene products like Laundry B10 powder 11E, and Premium fabric softener 11Q By ZENITH. When you came to tell us that your wife has allergy from the washing powders and she forgot her medicine back home you can't take the blame and put it on us. You asked us if we can give you linen without washing powder and i did wash the linen myself and not Petra folded the sheets I did also that. If we had a flooded kitchen because of the heavy rain water came from next door, we took care of that on the spot. You are right i had to behave not friendly when I go in the apartment I see that you don't put away the things you use from the kitchen when other guests had to use the same kitchen and I see that some of the bed linen are in the hallway as if you was in your own house. Finally, there is no duck farms near our place and the smell you are referring was from the same rain flooding the council was cleaning near the salt pans just for one day. Guests tell us how nice breeze we have in our area not duck smell as you are referring too. Normal guest do come and they tell me how nice and friendly I am and how helpful I have been with all the info I gave them in there stay. People mix with people and behave like people!

    Thank you Ray and Petra for having us at your place. Your lodge is good for people that don't want to stay in busy and noisy streets. Relaxing place to be with a wonderful seaview. We also met interesting guests to share daily maltese experiences over breakfast. Hope to see you soon, alba and attilio

    We loved the experience with Petra and Rey all the way - since very first contact till the end - very nice place in front of the sea with swimming area just accross the street. Nice breakfast, clean room, bathroom and kitchen, close to small sandy beach and a lot of Malta attractions by bus. Petra and Rey were close enough to help all the time. Strongly recommended by Ewa and Aleksandra.

How do I book?

Contact the host about your stay - tell them a little about yourself, why you are staying and ask any questions you have about their homestay. You will be able to book immediately after sending your message.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival.

This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.

When can I share my contact details?
