Majestic Hotel and Spa
This hotel is in central Barcelona, and very close to Gothic Quarter, so you and your spouse can enjoy a day of shopping and fine dining. According to a USA Today article, the Dalai Lama has even lodged there!
If you’re visiting the Majestic Hotel and Spa for your honeymoon, there are several suites for you to choose from, including the Sagrada Familia and the Penthouse Passeo de Gracia. The suites include flat-screen TVs and a bathroom with marble accents and a hydromassage bathtub. When you purchase the honeymoon package, you’ll receive a couple’s massage, along with a romantic dinner, complimentary open bar, and a delicious breakfast served in your suite. The honeymoon package even includes two tickets for you and your spouse to visit one of Barcelona’s beautiful, history-rich museums.
This hotel is on Barcelonia’s most opulent promenades, Rambia de Catalunya. All of the rooms have soundproof windows and room service. There’s an additional fee if you and your new bride or groom want to enjoy drinks from the mini bar, watch cable TV or access a Wi-Fi connection.
The honeymoon package includes a romantic dinner with drinks, breakfast for two in the hotel room, and a romantic bath complete with candles, fragrant bath oils, incense and rose petals. Couples can also take advantage of a late 3pm checkout, and the hotel provides a special gift for honeymooning couples as well.
While there are several hotels in Barcelona that offer gourmet dinners and breakfasts for couples, there are a number of fine eateries in the city that prepare delicious meals to make your stay in Barcelona even more pleasant.
This fancy restaurant is near Sagrada Familia and impeccable Mediterranean fare. The restaurant is the perfect place for a romantic date, as there is live piano music every night. You can choose from succulent meals like grilled turbot with vegetables and fried garlic and chocolate coulant for dessert. The dim lighting and round tables make this restaurant especially quaint and delightful.
Asador Donosti is moderately priced and has a warm and cozy feel. The restaurant is a genuine Basque rotisserie, so if you’re looking for hearty Spanish fare in a relaxed environment, this is definitely the place. The menu includes meals like oxtail stew, T-bone steak and sauteed mushrooms with garlic and asparagus.
Spending the day lounging in your comfortable hotel room and enjoying some of the tastiest meals in Barcelona will indeed make your honeymoon enjoyable. However, there are also a number of activities and attractions that you won’t want to pass up. Here are a few suggestions.
Hot Air Balloon Ride
You and your sweetheart can see the entire city of Barcelona from the sky. Many of the packages include a picnic in the hot air balloon as well, which makes the experience even more romantic. If you’ve booked a hotel in the center of Barcelona, you can be picked up from there to enjoy your hot air balloon excursion.
Magic Fountains of Montjüic
If you enjoy being outdoors, you’ll love these light and water shows in front of Barcelona Palace. The shows are free on the weekends and in the evenings. The shows are also presented with music, and the colourful water acrobatics you’ll see are truly picturesque and worth the evening stroll to Barcelona Palace from your hotel.
