Barcelona by Pau Guardans
Though its rooftop infinity pool feels like the apex of contemporary global luxury, Grand Hotel Central is both an ode to the golden age of travel and an homage to its environment. Owner Pau Guardans seeks to connect guests with the rich local culture and traditions at their doorstep, from the merchants and artisans that populate the hotel’s vibrant El Born neighborhood to the market-sourced cuisine prepared on site by renowned chef Ramon Freixa.
THE PACKAGE INCLUDES:
- Two nights for two people in a Grand Suite, including buffet breakfast.
- Complimentary bottle of Cava in your room upon arrival.
- Four-hour personal fishing trip in a lovely
Menorquina Boat, offering sweeping views of Barcelona and led by an expert team including a professional fisherman, who will bring you back to the port with nets full of delicacies of the sea.
- The team of two-Michelin-starred chef Ramon Freixa will transform the day’s catches into a gourmet dinner, including two courses, dessert and wine, at Freixa’s Ávalon Restaurant & Café, specializing in modern Mediterranean cuisine.
