Why it’s worth traveling for…

Representing Barcelona’s ‘new luxury,’ this stylish, uber-modern hotel sits in the heart of Montjuic, a wooded hill in the southwest section of the city overlooking the harbor. Inspired by both the Mediterranean Sea and Barcelona’s famed architecture, interiors blend natural woods with blues, ochre, and neutral tones. Suites come with stunning city views, while Quirat (the signature restaurant) is headed by Victor Torres, the youngest chef in Spain (at age 25) ever to achieve a Michelin star. Dip into the Spa Intercontinental®, a private oasis, to disconnect or just hang in the rooftop pool, taking in the 360-degree skyline views.
