Serious style at a five-star Fairmont property with awe-inspiring interiors and easy access to Barcelona's buzzing centre - includes wellness perks and more

Set in 25 hectares of splendid 19th-century gardens, the five-star Fairmont Hotel Rey Juan Carlos I is an upscale resort in the heart of Barcelona with splendid views out over the city. The words ‘resort’ and ‘city’ don’t usually go together, but that’s exactly what you’ll find at this unique destination.

The beautiful gardens of the Fairmont Rey Juan Carlos I provide a tranquil setting for the outdoor pools, award-winning spa and 5,400 square-metre fitness centre. Guests can choose from a range of health, relaxation and beauty treatments which have earned the resort a place in Condé Nast Traveller's Top 10 Best Fitness Centres in the world. There's a wide variety of drinking and dining options here too, ranging from low-key and al fresco options through to the more refined and sophisticated - don't miss a chance to try the stunning B24 restaurant, adorned with crystal ceiling lights.

Outside the resort walls, the fabulous Art Nouveau city of Barcelona beckons and with a central location on the city’s main avenue – Avenida Diagonal – and excellent transport links, the Fairmont Hotel Rey Juan Carlos I is the perfect base for a Catalonian city break.
