5-Star Hotel Guide


Spain is accustomed to the simple luxuries of fine food and wine and an excellent climate


Best 5-star hotels in Spain

Spain is synonymous with sun, sand and sangria, yet there is a far more sophisticated side to this cultured counntry that is appreciated by the discerning luxe-trotter.

Spain's delicious cuisine seduces with picancy, flavour and freshness, and can be found everywhere from rustic tapas bars to Michelin-starred showstoppers. As well as giving the world the likes of Velázquez, Picasso and Miro, the great cities of Madrid and Barcelona have some of the best art galleries you will ever visit. Spain is also blessed with an incredibly diverse natural beauty, with rugged mountains in the south, an unfathomably green north and beautifully colourful landscapes in the Balearic Islands, such as Mallorca and Ibiza.

We have a real soft spot for Mallorca, where we have three hotel gems: Belmond La Residencia in the charminng town of Deià, Gran Hotel Son Net in the Tramuntana mountains and Son Julia near Palma.

In Spain's great cities we recommend the glorious Ritz Madrid having re-opened under Mandarin Oriental management and Gran Hotel La Florida which sits imperiously above Barcelona.

Post travel restrictions, we will be extending our Spanish collection and look forward to reviewing Six Senses and Pure House in Ibiza, Palacio de los Duques in Madrid, Finca Cortesan near Malaga and Abadia Retuerta LeDomain in the wine growing region of Castilla y Léon (amongst others).
