The Ta Cenc Hotel and Spa is an oasis of tranquillity and style within this magical island. The spacious airy rooms, some built in the Trullo style, are decorated in understated elegance. The colours echo the hues of the setting sun on the magnificent limestone cliffs and the wild Thyme that covers the surrounding garrigue. Each room has its own cosy garden or separate porch where one can relax in privacy while enjoying stunning views.
Ta’ Cenc is truly a feast of the senses.
The spa is one of the finest on the islands and it has been cleverly built to bring the outside world, inside. One steps into the heated pool and slowly this leads to an outside lagoon pool which one can enjoy all year round. The sub tropical natural vegetation and the wild birds flying high above add an exotic, yet serene, atmosphere. There is a large vast range of treatments available at the hands of the experienced masseurs, beauty and well-being experts; from mini massages to sophisticated European treatments. At no extra cost, a fully equipped gym is provided for the use of all residents, as is the assistance of a qualified instructor. A hot tub, solarium, sauna and Turkish steam bath are some of the many other treats available in the spa.
All around Ta Cenc, as far as the eye can see, there are invigorating or gentle walks to be had in the hotel’s own private land. Mysterious cart ruts and megalithic menhirs, both of which were left by a mysterious race of people thousands of years ago, are only a short walk away. While being careful not to step on the wild Narcissus that fills the air with a heady perfume one reaches the edge of the magnificent limestone cliffs. There one looks down on the beautiful azure Mediterranean Sea. The seashore can be reached by taking another walk through the grounds that leads to a secluded private beach, there one can dive into the brilliant blue water and feel its refreshing embrace.
Food at the Ta Cenc Hotel and Spa is always a celebration. Whether it is the bountiful buffet breakfast tables brimming with local produce or lunch on the terrace with grilled fish fresh from the sea or perhaps a romantic dinner beneath the branches of a centuries old carob tree.
Stepping outside the grounds of the Ta Cenc Hotel and Spa one finds oneself in a quaint Gozitan village where life has moved slowly through time. Activities still revolve around the splendid baroque church and friendly locals make any visitor’s stay an enjoyable one. You may be offered a cup of tea sweetened with local honey, produced from the nectar of the wild flowers that populate the grounds of that Oasis with an island: The Ta Cenc Hotel and Spa.
