Choose a luxury hotel in Spain with Small Luxury Hotels of the World to enjoy tapas and fiestas in style. Sip oak-aged wines in the shadow of 200-year-old buildings in La Rioja, or walk among Renaissance masterpieces by El Greco at the Museo del Prado in Madrid. Further south there’s world-class golf and rugged secluded beaches skirting the Mediterranean.
Luxury city breaks in Spain
Marvel at Gaudi’s idiosyncratic masterwork, the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, or just sit back and enjoy Catalan specialities like flavour-packed wild mushrooms. Spanish superstar Manolo Blahnik’s creations shimmy out of exclusive boutiques and onto Madrid’s broad cobbled streets. The piquant flavours of the Basque country are best enjoyed at a Bilbao cider house.
Luxury beach holidays in Spain
In San Sebastián, on Spain’s north coast, jade-green hills slink gracefully into the swirling Bay of Biscay. Base yourself at a grand fortress on Mallorca’s rugged coastline for direct access to the balmy waters of the Mediterranean Sea, or choose a private retreat on the black-sand Canary Islands for cleansing volcanic spa treatments.
Luxury Spanish countryside retreats
A boutique hotel in the Alicante countryside puts you on the doorstep of ancient Mediterranean woodlands, where dishes of arroz (rice) with seafood, perhaps coloured with squid ink are the order of the day. Stay in a 17th-century retreat on the Castillian plateau, indulging in treatments at a boutique spa, or explore the hills and valleys of Andalucia from a princely Moorish palace.
Book your luxury holiday in Spain with Small Luxury Hotels of the World to experience the flair and flamboyancy of visionaries like Gaudi and Picasso. Sample hearty red wines, or sail between golf resorts and mansions on the castle-studded island of Fuerteventura.
