Explore Barcelona’s Fairmont Rey Juan Carlos I
By Mary Noe

One of Europe’s most exciting cities, Barcelona is truly a dream destination. Catalonia’s vibrant capitol offers miles of gorgeous beaches, delicious regional cuisine, world-renown architectural sites, museums, and churches, and is an appealing escape for a weekend get-a-way or a family holiday. Whether visiting for a quick trip or a longer vacation, Barcelona’s award-winning Fairmont Rey Juan Carlos I is an ideal base for a Spanish holiday.

Located near some of the city’s most famous attractions, the Fairmont Rey Juan Carlos I is an urban oasis in bustling Barcelona. Set within lush historic gardens, Barcelona’s top luxury resort offers exclusive seasonal activities, several swimming pools, a lake, outdoor terraces, outstanding restaurants (helmed by Executive Chef Claudio Aguirre), and access to the  Royal Polo Club of Barcelona and the Royal Club Fitness & Spa.

With spectacular views of the Barcelona skyline and coast, the upscale resort is currently completing a major refurbishment project. While the sleek décor is elegant, the atmosphere is unpretentious and comfortable.
