On the southeast coast of Spain is the port city of Alicante. Its Roman name Lucentum, meant ‘place of light’ and today, Alicante is known for its palm tree-lined boulevards, the golden sand beaches of the Costa Blanca, and the boutiques and lively bars of the old town, El Barrio. The city is also fast becoming renowned for its spa and wellness resorts. Here is our round-up of the best.

A terrace with panoramic views of the sea and the Torrevieja salt flats is one of the highlights of this delightful hotel, which is a favourite for animal lovers as it’s pet-friendly.
