In a unique natural setting between the Costa del Sol and the Andalusian town of Granada sits one of the most dramatic locations in Spain. Poised below the magnificent snowcapped peaks of the Sierra Nevada sits the exquisite Barceló La Bobadilla Hotel. The property provides a special type of luxury. It is a symbol of the Slow Travel trend that invites travelers to forget about itineraries and clocks, and just relax and connect with the setting. It lures you to stay for many days, making it a perfect central setting for relaxing, exploring, cultural tasting tours, picnics or just let yourself be swept along by a rich and restorative routine.
Why Barceló La Bobadilla?
Looking and feeling like an Andalusian town on the facade, this property lets you experience authentic luxury near the Sierra de Loja. Perfectly placed between Seveille, Malaga and Cordoba airports, this unique enclave demonstrates the concept of Slow Travel. Wake up as the sun begins to drench over the large Mudejar columns and palatial architecture and gaze out of your window to admire the fields of olive groves and holm oaks that extend out to the horizon.
A most exclusive stay in this hotel is complemented by its large expanse of gardens and 1500 m² swimming pool, a modern spa with all types of treatments, free Wi-Fi, tennis courts and a large range of outdoor sporting activities.
Just like the guests, each room is unique at Barceló La Bobadilla. Each room combines stone floors, fine wood and marble Arabic baths of different styles, transporting the visitor to an exquisitely designed world with views of the countryside. Luxury is apparent from the first to the last detail in this Andalusian marvel, and that is why numerous monarchs, emirs and celebrities have chosen to stay here during their exclusive holidays in Granada.
The spectacular setting and the luxurious facilities also turn every wedding into an extraordinary event, surrounded by the gardens, restaurants and a fabulous chapel. This space can also be adapted to accommodate events and meetings.
Make it Extra Special
And of course, gastronomy. Andalusia is a land of flavors, scents and subtle tones; and the restaurants called La Finca, one of the best in Granada, and El Cortijo, combine regional ingredients to offer exquisite lunches and dinners under a blanket of stars.
