Hotel Arts

Hotel Arts



The Hotel Arts rose out of the sands of Barcelona’s beachfront to play host to the many global visitors to the 1992 Summer Olympics. Towering above the city and seascape, this 44-story hotel is ultra-modern and has remained chic, classy, and comfortable. This luxury Barcelona beach hotel is also part of the Ritz Carlton group of global luxury hotels.

Location

Barcelona is the capital city of the autonomous Catalonian region in Spain. The hotel is dramatically placed right on the seafront overlooking the city and the Mediterranean Sea. Moreover, Barcelona El Prat Airport is a short drive from the city.

Sights

Inland views from the Arts are dominated by the massive stainless steel Gold Fish Sculpture by Frank Gehry. An iconic statue in modern Barcelona, the fish, seems to alter shape and color to the sun's movement and weather changes. 

The Ciutat Vella (old city) remains Barcelona's political and cultural heart with ancient Roman architecture alongside modernistic art. Museums dedicated to Picasso and Miro are also close by Antoni Gaudi's architecture and his famous unfinished cathedral masterpiece, the Sagrada Familia.

These outstanding sights are some way from the beach area. However, they are easily reached by the plentiful taxis and public transport.

The Hotel

Hotel Arts is a huge perpendicular building of blue glass and steel sitting on Spain's Mediterranean coastline. The décor is modern and minimalistic but elevated by luxurious fabrics, fixtures, and fine art pieces. The staff is also famous for top-notch service. They welcome guests in a splendid entrance hall dominated by flower arrangements and an ornate central chandelier. 

The lobby area is also enticing with chocolate-brown velvet-covered sofas and chairs and exits into paintings and unique art corridors. Additionally, there is a large outdoor pool, a children’s pool, and a newer adults-only infinity pool. There are also gardens, several restaurants/bars, an impressive 43 The Spa, and a well-equipped gym.

The Rooms

This is a huge hotel boasting 483 guest rooms and modern luxury suites. All rooms have generous amenities, including a flat-screen TV, Bang and Olufsen technology, and wi-fi (no fee in higher grade rooms). Besides, there is tea/coffee-making equipment and a mini-bar. 

The deluxe rooms are very spacious and have fine sea or city views. Additionally, the clubrooms have the benefit of additional services and access to the club lounge. 

All rooms have big marbled bathrooms with showers, tubs, double vanity units, and swish Asprey toiletries.

The Suites

The contemporary-style executive suites are extremely spacious, featuring room-wide windows with panoramic views. Subtle, soothing colors and fabrics on deep comfortable beds and seating are relieved by bright, fresh floral arrangements. 

Moreover, the clubrooms have additional benefits, and add-on connecting rooms are available on request. The suites also offer exclusive individual design features and wrap-around windows affording sea and city views. 

Lastly, the Mediterranean suites have additional king rooms on request and feature beautiful sea views.

Penthouse Suites (3-beds, Arts, Barcelona, Royal, and Presidential) 

These are serviced duplex-style suites. Most have expansive windows and balconies to enjoy spectacular high-level views across the sea and city and direct private access to reception. Butler service is also standard in these accommodations. 

Besides, many extra amenities and services come with these suites. These include the use of a Mini Cooper Cabrio to explore the city as desired. Bathrooms are also lavish. Moreover, the royal and presidential are huge, have private gym facilities, large terraces, and skyline views.

Club

Club-level guests get dedicated concierge services, access to the lounge, and a food/drinks bar with comfortable sofa-seating and panoramic views. Club guests can also enjoy an organized La Roca village shopping trip with top-notch brands available and a special lounge for relaxation and light meals.

Dining

Several restaurants on-site give plenty of choices in food, style, and mood. All-day family diners and bathers can head for Marina overlooking Olympic bay. They can eat at the poolside or on a pretty terrace with sky-blue padded wooden chairs, terracotta flooring, and huge potted plants.

However, although large, the Golden Fish dwarfs the pool and dominates the scene. Hearty steak and chips and kid’s menus add to the popularity here. 

Alternatively, swimmers can feel they are going right under the fish sculpture at the Infinity Pool. After they dry off, there are delicious menus of light meals to enjoy or cocktails at the bar and evening live music under the stars. 

The Lokal also offers a fabulous full buffet breakfast of local organic produce with Catalan/Spanish specialties. Fees apply for this, but this is exceptional fare and sumptuous enough to get through a day’s swimming, touring, or business meetings.

Fine Dining

The Arts hotel is blessed with the 2-Michelin-starred Enoteca Paco Perez restaurant, under the inspirational direction of local legendary chef Paco Perez. This pristine white restaurant is all about natural fabrics, organic food, fresh fish, and fabulous Mediterranean dishes.

It has haute cuisine with a lovely sea view setting. An impressive Cava list also accompanies the menus. Moreover, for the best cocktails to match these heights, award-winning mixologist Diego Baud is on-site at the P41 bar.

Spa and Gym

The spa and gym facilities match the Olympic setting in size and range of treatments and exercise equipment. High above the Mediterranean, the spa has separate areas for men and women and offers steam baths, massages, and ultra-luxe face/body treatments using luxury products. 

A vitality pool and special steam treatment employing color therapy are additional benefits. Besides, the gym has modern equipment and personal trainers or guided sessions that lead guests through yoga, Pilates, and wellness programs.

Business/Events Facilities

With an exceptional conference business center, a gorgeous ballroom, first-rate catering and organizing staff, and a Mediterranean setting, the hotel is ideal for hosting any event. 

Children

Children are also welcome at this hotel and have their own reception and welcome pack on arrival. Kids menus, kid’s pool, and organized activities and babysitting enable families to enjoy stays at this resort.

Takeaway

The Ritz Carlton Arts Hotel in Barcelona has become a world-renowned hotel in a region rich with cultural history and an enviable Mediterranean locale. Staycation has become popular, and this idea has encouraged people to enjoy the benefits of their own locations. This Barcelona hotel is on the A list for global visitors and local guests alike.
