Just tied the knot and planning to spend your honeymoon in Barcelona? The city is a veritable lovers’ paradise thanks to its romantic architecture, boutique hotels and lively food scene. From where to stay and eat to the best things to see and do, these are the best spots to get loved up in the Catalan capital.
Places to stay
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.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A GUIDE?
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR JOB?
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.
WHAT DESTINATION IS ON YOUR TRAVEL BUCKET-LIST?
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!
