Who doesn’t want a touch of the South Pacific in Spain? Barcelo Asia Gardens is a unique hotel in Spain, situated along the Costa Blanca with a distinctive Asian twist. The Costa Blanca is a 200 km stretch of beautiful coastline in the Spanish province of Alicante, and is an extremely popular travel destination due to the beauty of the location and, of course, the fantastic weather.
Before we get in to the rooms, restaurants and things to do at this hotel, we have to tell you the about two of its best features: spectacular gardens and a gorgeous infinity swimming pool. You’ll find more than 60 varieties of plants, bonsais and flowers on the hotel’s grounds. Plant lovers will enjoy relaxing here, enjoying nature and the hotel’s serene atmosphere.
Take a walk through the gardens to reach the hotel’s large infinity pool, bordered by sun terraces. It is absolutely stunning, and you won’t want to get out of the water once you’re in it. In fact, the hotel has seven pools (three of which are heated) for guests to use.
All 312 rooms at Barcelo Asia Gardens are different, ensuring that each guest gets a personalized and unique experience. The Asian touches in the rooms are particularly unique and beautiful. You’ll love the comfy kimonos and slippers.
Each room offers large terraces, 32” LCD TVs, DVD with stereo, ADSL Internet and WiFi. One of the best features of the rooms is the spacious washrooms. Make sure you ask for a suite that features a Jacuzzi.
When you aren’t enjoying the gardens, or exploring the surrounding area, there is plenty to do at the hotel. Check out the fitness center, salon, Thai spa and running courses. There are also two great 18 hole golf courses nearby (designed by Jack Nicklaus) if you want to play a few rounds of golf.
And, at the end of a long day, you might want to enjoy a glass of bubbly at the Champagne Bar, found in the lobby. This bar specializes in cocktails that contain champagne. The restaurants at the hotel focus on an interesting Asian-Mediterranean fusion. At night, take in a show at the Bonsai Bar, named for the 150-year-old Bonsai tree on the terrace.
