The Asian influence makes for a surprisingly enjoyable blend with the southern Spanish locale.
The opulent Balinese-style décor of your Deluxe Suite suggests you're in Asia. But the wide-angle view from the terrace reminds you this is the Mediterranean coast of Spain, where 312-room Barcelo Asia Gardens Hotel & Thai Spa stands on the hill among an acre of pine forest. The eye-catching retreat offers the best of both worlds, in a landscape of thatched pagodas, infinity pools, and lush foliage.
In keeping with the resort's Asian-inspired philosophy that guests are here to relax and rebalance, the spa offers Thai massages in outdoor stilt houses. There are yoga and Pilates classes too, but you can also find inner peace on the two Jack Nicklaus-designed golf courses flanking the hotel. And when you're done swimming all seven pools, the beach and three elaborate theme parks are within easy reach.
Fittingly, the Med meets Asia at Barcelo Asia Gardens Hotel & Thai Spa restaurants, which offer everything from an international buffet to nouvelle cuisine. And speaking of relaxation, there's a choice of three bars.
