A boutique bolthole bringing a slick and stylish vibe to the Catalan hotel scene – includes breakfast and more

A relative newcomer to the Catalan scene, the super-stylish Vila Arenys Hotel can be found in the fishing town of Arenys de Mar on the Maresme coast, 25 miles from Barcelona. Often overlooked in favor of its famous neighbour, this under-the-radar stretch of coast is a hidden gem, with secluded coves giving way to golden swathes of sand.

High up among the terracotta rooftops and church spires, the hotel’s skybar and rooftop pool is the perfect spot for a few lengths followed by a cocktail, drinking in the urban vistas. Views take centre stage in the rooms too: overlooking the charming old town from a private balcony, the design-led spaces, with their rich and moody hues contrast the cool, white lighting, statement splashes of mural wallpaper and boldly patterned chairs.
