A luxe Spain stay at 19th-century spa resort in Caldes de Malavella, near Girona, with breakfast, a welcome glass of cava and optional spa access

Perfect for those who fancy whiling away the hours bubbling away in mineral-rich thermal waters, this 19th-century Neo-Mudéjar building is a spot-on pick. And the location’s just as fabulous; in Spain’s tranquil village of Caldes de Malavella, just 12 miles from Girona – the historic walled city that had some rather spectacular cameos in season six of HBO’s hit drama, Game of Thrones.

Designed to a high spec, all of the 86 guestrooms and suites come with strong colour palettes and an ample amount of creature comforts. There’s also a laid-back bar for day-to-night drinks, a superb signature dining spot for seasonal dishes elaborated with Vichy Catalan and Font d'Or spring water, a tennis court for knockabouts, and an outdoor pool for summer swimming.

But the real superstar is the spa with its various indoor pools (all kept at a balmy 36ºC), Jacuzzi, thermal water cannons, chromotherapy route, biothermal shower, Finnish sauna, Hammam, and more. You’ll also find a deep treatment menu (customised facials, serenity massages, nourishing masks and wraps) to leave your soul feeling happy and your skin looking gorgeous.


  • Staying in the tranquil village of Caldes de Malavella, just 12 miles from Girona
  • Walking up the steps of Girona Cathedral which featured in Game of Thrones
  • An excellent selection of thermal thrills and indulgent pampering in the fabulous spa
  • Treating yourself to the seriously good Mediterranean-style tasting menu paired with fine wines
