The Mandarin Oriental Barcelona, in the heart of the city’s most luxurious quarter, surrounded by superb Art Nouveau creations, offers guests 98 five star rooms and suites. Designer Patricia Urquiola, in her desire to combine Barcelona’s identity with the oriental influences of the Mandarin Hotel group, opted for plays of light and transparency, creating an immediate feeling of well-being. The hotel’s restaurants and salons are separated by screens that seem to be made of lace, rather than by doors. In the rooms, the sober colors, clear lines, generous volumes and noble materials combine to make each one a restful and luxurious cocoon. The hotel has a vast spa offering a variety of treatments and fitness classes, an open air swimming pool and a wellness boutique designed for guests to prolong their treatments at home. At the Moments restaurant, the starred Michelin guide chef, Carme Ruscalleda and his son, Raul Balam, the supervisor, propose an authentic, traditional gastronomic cuisine. With its classic design spaces and its services dedicated to its guests’ pleasure, the Mandarin Oriental Barcelona is a veritable invitation to an exciting and restful journey.


To accurately describe Barcelona, it’s essential to invoke certain colors, beginning with the blue of the sea. Located on the shores of the Mediterranean the Catalonian capital possesses vast beaches and a spectacular seafront, enabling the city to enjoy the ocean breezes all year long. Barcelona has two Mediterranean ports. The old port with its fishermen has a retro charm to it, whereas the more recent port has the advantage of being near the former Olympic village.

Then there’s the green of the trees bordering, the vibrant heart of the city known as the Ramblas. This central pedestrian avenue with its numerous street artists connects many of the city’s different neighborhoods. Barcelona is also home to the greenery of Collserola, the second largest urban green space after New York’s Central Park.

Finally, there’s the red of the tomatoes and peppersin the stalls of the Boqueria, the city’s main market, where prestigious chefs gather together for a typical Barcelona breakfast.

Thousands of other colors are present on the lively streets of the old city, where Gaudi chose to erect his art nouveau Sagrada Familia (holy family) Cathedral and his Güell Park with colors that create a dream-like ambiance.

Avant-garde in the areas of culture, fashion and gastronomy, Barcelona is an active, modern city and one of the prides of Spain, making Catalonia one of the country’s most attractive regions for both business and pleasure.

Mandarin Oriental

Located since 2009 in the very luxurious Passeig de Gracia quarter, the Mandarin Oriental Barcelona is one of the city’s most beautiful hotels.

To enter the ultra modern universe of designer Patricia Urquiola, you first have to cross the futuristic footbridge of the atrium and then look up at the vast wall whose geometric openings give guests an inkling of what is store for them inside the hotel.

There are no doors limiting the entrance space, only screens which seem to be made of lace to define the different areas. The transparency and the light enhance Patricia Urquiola’s sublimate the decoration, like for example in the Blanc Restaurant, where different shades of white are warmed by the natural light that inundates the room. Large armchairs and sofas create this same warm atmosphere in the gastro-bar.

Light and subtle tones are also the order of the day in the hotel’s 98 rooms. The furniture, both designer and classic, creates an ambiance of elegance and refinement. The rooms, ranging in size from 35 to 230 square meters are luxurious and restful thanks to their clear lines, generous volumes and noble materials.

Once again, sliding screens in orange tones set the limits of the different spaces, as well as being a reminder of the hotel’s oriental origins and inspiration.

The Mandarin Oriental Barcelona also possesses a one star Michelin guide gastronomic restaurant, The Moments, under the direction of chef Carme Ruscalleda, whose authentic and traditional cuisine has already received several awards.

The Mandarin Oriental Barcelona is dedicated to the well-being of its guests as demonstrated by its huge spa with treatment rooms for two people enabling couples to share a moment of relaxation. On the roof, a magnificent long swimming lane is an ideal spot for cooling off high above the city. The Mandarin Oriental Barcelona, with its location in the heart of the Art Nouveau quarter, offers guests a luxurious experience without ostentation and an invitation to a relaxing and exciting journey.

Raul Balam, the restaurant’s supervisor is the son of Carme Ruscalleda, the chef of the Mandarin Oriental Barcelona’s restaurants.
