Finally the bouquets of flowers have arrived and the natural perfumes have been placed in the rooms – Murella Living has opened. Everything is working like clockwork, and the three murella brothers – creators of Murella Living and other sophisticated brands, including Café Jubilee – are on site in their legendary hands-on management. In a way it’s like a homecoming for the brothers: they grew up in the earlier building that has now been superseded by Murella Living. And one of them will live within the property to ensure personalised, prompt, and unstinting service. 

The sweet, appetizing aroma of freshly-baked croissants wafts throughout Murella Living every morning while the sparrows chirp raucously outside, announcing the start of another fine day. But there is more to breakfast than croissants: a selection of breads is also freshly-baked every morning, the juice is squeezed before serving, a variety of fruits and yoghurts are prepared, and the brewed coffee awakens the senses. All the breakfast grub is in fact prepared in-house and, aside from the generous continental breakfast that’s included in the price of the rooms, guests can opt to order alternative items – including a range of delectable smoothies – at a modest price. It all makes for a felicitous start to the day for our guests.

Murella Living is not only Gozo’s most imaginative concept in holiday accommodation; it is also on course to be a trend-setter.
