Soaked in sunlight from floor-to-ceiling windows, this spa on the 43rd floor of the Hotel Arts, one of Barcelona’s swankiest seaside hotels, is all about the vistas.
Sweeping views of the Mediterranean, Barceloneta beach and the Barcelona skyline capture the eye throughout the space (even in the sauna and dressing rooms!) and more than make up for this circuit’s smaller size. Despite its limited square footage, the circuit includes all of the essentials: a sauna, ice-fountains, color therapy steam rooms and “vitality” pools best described as lukewarm, jetted pools. When you need a little fresh air, there’s a sizeable outdoor terrace with space to lounge, too.
Pro tip: if you’ve got time and can swing the hefty price tag, book one of the spa’s signature treatment, like the Diamond Rose Ritual. Full-body exfoliation with Natura Bissé products leaves your skin sparkling like magic, and the follow-up massage will soothe you into a coma
