BARCELONA

Hotel Condes de Barcelona
It is almost impossible to exaggerate the pleasure of a visit to Barcelona, Europe’s top weekend destination. It combines tradition, modernity, style, art, architecture, a bustling street life that turns into an all-night party—and weather that is seldom less than ideal. If you want to be at the heart of the city, Hotel Condes de Barcelona is right there on the shop-filled Passeig de Gràcia in the Eixample area, across the street from Gaudi's Pedrera. Two turn-of-the-century former palaces, recently restored and facing each other across the street, this is one of Barcelona's most popular hotels, it has a Michelin-starred restaurant, and our Members receive special Club rates at the hotel and the restaurant . . . more

Hotel Espana
To sample the heady atmosphere and rhythm of Barcelona, La Rambla is a good place to start: and we have a super recommended hotel just off La Rambla, and a modernist architectural Barcelona gem into the bargain. The four-star Hotel España is in the heart of the city’s historic centre, adjacent to La Rambla, the Gran Teatre del Liceu and the Gothic Quarter—to be at the heart of things, it is a good choice. It is also an architectural gem. Opened in 1859, it was renovated by the popular modernist architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner. Our Members enjoy advantageous Blue Ribbon rates, upgrades and amenities at this super hotel, as well as a discounted bill at the restaurants . . . more

Hostal de La Gavina
Our gracious new hotel on the Mediterranean coast is a privately owned Catalan mansion standing on a rocky promontory on one of the finest beaches in Spain. This, the beautiful Hostal de La Gavina (it means The Seagull), is Catalunya’s only five-star Grand Luxe resort hotel, and it is welcoming our Members with warm Catalan hospitality and old-time indulgence.

We shall be in good company: La Gavina attracted Ava Gardner, with the bullfigher Luis Dominguin and Frank Sinatra in her wake. Afterwards came Elizabeth Taylor, Orson Welles, Peter Sellers, Dirk Bogarde and Sean Connery. Writers such as Jean Cocteau loved La Gavina, as did the soprano Teresa Berganza, the tenor Jose Carreras, and King Juan Carlos. The list goes on. . . more

SEVILLE

Corral del Rey
Seville is the city in which the vibrant spirit of Andalucía—of flamenco and bullfighting—meets 21st-century architecture, contemporary design and food. This is the city of Bizet’s Carmen and Rossini’s Barber of Seville, and where Moliere, Lord Byron, George Bernard Shaw and Mozart all drew inspiration from a Sevillian nobleman reinvented as Don Juan. The Spanish also perfected the art of the boutique hotel—years before most of their European neighbours—and Corral del Rey in the centre of Seville is a perfect example. Tucked away on a cobbled street in the Alfalfa barrio, a five-minute walk from the centre of town, there is an air of tranquillity in this converted 17th-century palaccio from the moment you walk into its light-filled hall. Our Members adore this super hotel, and Club rates . . . more

Hacienda De San Rafael, near Seville
If the Corral del Rey in Seville is your pied-a-terre in town, the Hacienda de San Rafael would certainly make an ideal country pad. Just an hour or so outside Seville towards the olive- and grape-filled plains near the sherry capital of Jerez, the Hacienda still has the look of the traditional white-painted 19th century cortijo it originally was, with its thick stone walls and floor-to-ceiling, wooden shuttered windows, but with plenty of luxuries. The entrance is through a terracotta-paved courtyard amid a riot of bougainvillea. With five acres of gardens, three infinity pools, as well as riding and tennis, the challenge is in finding the energy to leave. And our Members enjoy special rates . . . more

MAJORCA

Castell Son Claret
To stay in a castle is always fascinating, and to find a genuine castle in the Spanish island of Mallorca, set peacefully in the beautiful foothills of the Serra de Tramuntana, is a delight. Here you can indulge yourself with all the pleasures of staying within these thick stone walls and sauntering around your 325-acre estate, with its original stables and guardhouses, groves of orange and lemon trees, persimmons and pomegranates, fringed palms, fragrant herbs, terraced pools and tinkling fountains, with nothing at all to disturb your peace of mind. When you want to venture forth to the beaches and fishing villages, your car will have you there in minutes. For the designer shops and the nightlife, Palma, the capital, is but a quarter of an hour’s drive. For details, and to be first to book the Blue Ribbon offer … more

SALAMANCA

Hacienda Zorita Wine Hotel & Spa
There is a square in Salamanca which they call the 'living room of Spain', not only for its beauty but because Plaza Mayor is the meeting place for many student nationalities coming to this Unesco world heritage city to learn Castilian, Spain's most popular dialect. The attraction of learning Spanish in Salamanca is also that you are never far from a wonderful glass of wine—the city is on the famed 'wine river', Rio Duero, running through Spain and into Portugal, where its valley is home to some of the finest vineyards in the world. Minutes from Plaza Mayor, on the banks of a tributary of the Duero, lies Hacienda Zorita Wine Hotel, a palatial converted Dominican monastery and vineyard founded in the 14th century. Seven hundred years of history are the background to a project, 10 years in the making, to restore it to its former glory as a place of renowned hospitality—hospitality which welcomed many notable figures, including one Christopher Columbus, who came here to plan his voyage to the New World. This is a fascinating place to stay, and Members are invited to experience true hacienda hospitality together with gourmet restaurants, a vinotherapy spa, wine tasting in the cellars and . . . more

CANARY ISLANDS

VIK Suite Hotel Risco del Gato, Fuertrventura
Thirty kilometres of pristine, powder-soft white sand make up Fuerteventura's Sotavento Beach, one of the finest stretches of sand in the Canary Islands, where the balmy weather is known as 'eternal spring'. This huge tract is a playground—for sun worshippers, water sports addicts, divers, snorkellers, windsurfers and kiteboarders, as well as birdwatchers and walkers who can still find large deserted areas for solitude, birdlife and open spaces. Sotavento stretches down the south-east coast of the island, part of 17 miles of continuous beach between Playa Barca and Morro Jable on the southern tip. This extraordinary beach is the location of VIK Suite Hotel Risco del Gato, itself an architecturally stunning contemporary resort surrounded by gardens and swimming pools. The collection of luxury white architect-designed cocoon-like suites set 200 metres from the wide golden sands of Sotavento, lifts Risco del Gato out of the ordinary. These suites are set in nearly 35,000 square metres of private gardens; oases of privacy, peace and contemporary comforts, with fabulous views out across the beach and the shimmering blue sea. Each has a door leading to a terrace and a small private garden—and each has its own inner patio with a private outdoor shower. This is a resort designed for privacy and escapism, and our Members enjoy special Blue Ribbon rates and VIP upgrades . . . more

Hotel Hacienda de Abajo, La Palma
The Canary Islands are popular at any time of the year; a cooling breeze is guaranteed whatever the season and the volcanic landscapes never fail to impress. And while Tenerife, Lanzarote and Gran Canaria are always the popular choices, there are more discreet alternatives for those looking for a less crowded option. San Miguel de la Palma, for example (or just La Palma to the locals), is in the north-west Canaries, one of the smaller islands but no less abundant with flora and fauna—and unlike its neighbours you will find plenty of bananas growing here. . . . more
