Set in the private resort of S´Agaró on an enchanting peninsula in Costa Brava, Hostal de la Gavina is the perfect accommodation for those wishing to enjoy a genuine Mediterranean holiday without compromising on luxury nor tourism as the city of Barcelona is just a pleasant drive away.
Part of the luxurious Leading Hotels of the World, it is the only 5-star Grand Luxe hotel in Catalunya yet its humble, Mediterranean styled architecture will make you feel right at home before the scent of the lush, green gardens that surround it and the nearby sea sweep you off your feet.
It has 53 rooms, 21 suites and an ultra exclusive 2-bedroom villa for those looking for a more independent stay while enjoying all the services and facilities of a luxury hotel.
All the rooms and suites have been decorated in an elegant style that mixes vintage furniture with classic Mediterranean tile flooring and delicate fabrics. This helps to create a very distinctive atmosphere fit to please even the most demanding members of the aristocracy.
Some of the rooms feature balconies where guests can enjoy breakfast as well as mesmerising sea views and sunsets.
The gastronomy is mostly Mediterranean but there is also space for local specialities that live your taste buds tingling. There are 3 restaurants in total but families will enjoy the poolside one the most - aside from its superb location, it serves delectable paellas and kid's menus.
The snack bar and terrace is perfect to sit down and relax with a cold beer or a colourful cocktail.
Breakfasts are also set to make you start each day with a smile and a huge energy boost as the varied buffet is served in a terrace overlooking the sea.
When it comes to activities, few hotels can match the offer here. There is a tennis club with 4 courts where guests can play tennis and paddle and a spa and fitness centre where they can work out or treat themselves to massages and beauty therapies.
If these weren´t enough, an outdoor seawater pool and an indoor heated pool await them to battle the heat. As so does the nearby, sandy Sant Pol beach which is easily accessed right from the hotel. You can even rent one of the colourful beach cabanas when you make your booking!
Golf aficionados can enjoy world-class golf courses near the hotel at the prestigious PGA Catalunya - the best one in Spain - and Empordà Golf.
