Anyone else dying to jet to Spain? I'm embarassed to say we only hit Barcelona and Madrid... not some of the more off-beat locations. This incredible boutique hotel is worlds away from the bustle of the busy cities we visited, not just by distance, but by vibe. The hotel itself is a replica of a Moorish palace, the chapel within is Mudéjar-style, the spa boasts both Turkish and Finnish sauna and it's restaurant boasts fine Spanish cuisine. Stepping back you'll note that Barceló La Bobadilla is modeled after a medieval Arab village complete with sheltered courtyards and olive tree groves. Your role here? Wander, unwind, disconnect with tech and reconnect with life.

Although you're only 30-minutes from the airport I suspect that the lush terrain (the boutique hotel is located amidst almost 900 acres of oak forest) and 1,100 sq. ft. Presidential Suite will be enough to have you ignoring those status updates for at least a few days. More on this from Kiwi Collection.

What the beautiful people are saying...

Amazing! Just added this to our "must visit" list!

Oh wow... that's a little piece of paradise. I am actually thinking of visiting Spain at the end of this year... so I'm excited to see the beautiful architecture :)

Something to say, gorgeous?
