If you’re a fan of vintage furniture and like the sound of staying in one of the trendiest spots in Barcelona, check out Soho House. A private members’ club as well as an exclusive hotel, Soho House is located just across from the Marina Port Vell in the Gothic Quarter and boasts modern decor that combines authentic Catalan architecture with a modern Mediterranean feel. Being a guest at the hotel gives you access to the Club House – one of the most coveted hangouts in the city – serving delicious cocktails and a selection of contemporary tapas.

Located just outside Barcelona in the countryside, the Mas Salagros is an exclusive eco-resort and spa that claims to be the first 100 percent organic hotel in Spain. It is surrounded by a farm that supplies ingredients for the in-house eatery Restaurant 1497, and for the breakfasts served here. In addition, the facilities include a luxurious spa run by Aire – who also have spas in Barcelona (see below), New York and Buenos Aires – where you can enjoy thermal baths and aromatherapy treatments.

Places to eat


Restaurant, Spanish

Perched on the edge of Montjuïc hill, overlooking the harbour and the Mediterranean sea, Martinez is a modern Spanish restaurant with a superb outdoor terrace. The kitchen is famous for its rice dishes – try the arroz caldoso instead of paella for a change – and serves an ample selection of fresh seafood as well. Be sure to request a table by the large bay window to ensure you get the most romantic view.

A hotel with a restaurant run by top Catalan chef Jordi Cruz, ABaC is a two Michelin-star fine-dining restaurant located in the heights of Barcelona. The food is contemporary Catalan cuisine inspired by local ingredients and traditional flavour combinations, but with a modern approach to preparation and presentation. The restaurant boasts an outdoor terrace that opens out on to a private garden and offers a warm and intimate dining experience.

Things to see and do

Sunset Cruise


Treat yourself to an exclusive sunset cruise on the Mediterranean and watch the sun disappear over the horizon of the surrounding mountains. The Orsom Catamaran offers group sunset cruises but can also be hired for private groups, meaning you and your partner can feel like jet-setters for the evening. Grab a glass of bubbly and get comfortable as you cruise across the waterfront and admire the city from an entirely different perspective.

Montjuïc Gardens

For a moment of tranquillity in an otherwise hectic city, escape to the outdoor gardens of Montjuïc. Starting from the bottom of the hill, stroll through the Greek Theatre Gardens and take a moment to sit in the open-air amphitheatre that gives the gardens their name. Walk up through the Generalife staircases and listen to the sound of the water trickling down the side of the stairs. Pass through the gardens of Mossèn Cinto Verdaguer to admire the water pools before finishing off with a tour of Montjuïc castle and a picnic overlooking the sea.

Aire de Barcelona

Spa, Health Spa

The Aire de Barcelona is a luxurious thermal spa located in the neighbourhood of El Born. The baths include a circuit of different temperature pools, ranging from icy cold to hot, as well as a temperate pool that is perfect for taking a long relaxing soak. The atmosphere is intimate and candlelit, and there is a chill-out area where you can enjoy complimentary mint tea. Be sure to complete your experience with a massage for you and your partner.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
