All are connected by galleries and staircases of dimensions and noble materials that take you to the top, that dome that overlooks the corner between Alcalá and Sevilla streets, and where Malaga chef Dani García is installed. Also, beware of its impressive Isa Gastrobar.

Marquis of Riscal, Elciego (Alava)

It is a city of wine, hidden among vineyards in the Rioja Alavesa and overlooking a medieval postcard town. We would return again and again to this, the Marqués de Riscal project, one of the most prestigious international wineries. They were pioneers in having a luxury complex to show their wonders, wines, cuisine, and hospitality. Architect Frank Gehry shaped it into an emblem, a monument to design and the flavor of this land.

St Regis Mardavall, Majorca

Perched on the Costa d’en Blanes and with a privileged panoramic view, just a few minutes by car from the city of Palma, the mythical St. Regis celebrates two decades as one of the most iconic luxury hotels on the island. It does so, moreover, with a long-awaited renovation by Lázaro Rosa-Violán and the London design studio HKS. The first has been in charge of the bar area, an essential space in any St. Regis in the world, endowing it with warmth and naturalness, making the most of its sea views and terraces. This “artist’s bar,” with the bar as the central element, is another step in developing the cocktail culture that these hotels have fostered since their inception.

Along the same lines, the new design of Es Fum, the Michelin star restaurant, exposes Mallorca’s intense relationship with art with a striking collection of pieces. Its more than a hundred sober rooms, and Arabella Spa, known for its holistic philosophy and visionary Chinese medical center, do the rest. By the way, its brother, the Castillo Hotel Son Vida, another Majorcan emblem managed by Marriott International, is also being renovated for adults and is another unmissable stay in the area.

The change, which was lacking, can be seen from the new façade, remodeled and embellished by the architect Ramón de Arana, and from the gardens, redesigned by the landscaper Gregorio Marañón. Inside, the warmth of a private residence and memories of the building’s past, the old Anglada Palace, are not at odds with the best materials, design, and modern works of art that dot each room; by the way, much more fluid, luminous and appetizing. Gastronomic level, too, with the arrival of chef Jesús Sánchez (El Cenador de Amós***) with his restaurant Amós, Las Brasas de Castellana, which promises to be the place of the moment, and the spectacular Flor y Nata pastry shop.

The Wittmore, Barcelona

It is the hidden gem of the Gothic Quarter, an oasis in a lost cul-de-sac where, suddenly, this small boutique retreat of just 22 rooms and eclectic design has just been renovated. Its small corners and tables fall in love. So much so that we also affirm that it is the most romantic place in Barcelona. Its atmosphere and personality, with that “cool” mix between high-end guests and local connoisseurs, does the rest, in tune with chef Alain Guiard’s cuisine at his Contraban restaurant, inspired by the artistic process.

7 Pines Resort, Ibiza
