The 10 Best Spas in Barcelona
1.Hotel 1898 ⭐⭐⭐
An impressive 19th century building on one of the world’s most famous streets houses this spa hotel which was renovated in 2005 to become a luxurious colonial-style accommodation. Its Spa H1898 is for the exclusive use of guests, so a stay here is worthwhile in more ways than one.Its menu features more than 20 treatments inspired by Eastern traditions, and you’re practically forced to take advantage of the pool and thermal circuit before immersing yourself in the therapy, ritual or exfoliation of your choice.
2.Mandarin Oriental Barcelona ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Mandarin Oriental has an exclusive spa with a 12-metre pool, an oriental steam bath, a relaxation area on the roof terrace with an outdoor pool and a long menu of beauty treatments not suitable for all pockets.But if you’re among the lucky ones who can afford to go, be sure to make the most of this idyllic paradise by treating yourself to one of their private spa suites, where you can try a Thai massage or a pampering bath, among other treatments.
3.Hotel Arts Barcelona ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Built as accommodation for participants in the 1992 Olympic Games, the building that now houses the Hotel Arts overlooks the Barceloneta beach and the city centre.

4.Hotel Sofia Barcelona ⭐⭐⭐
Head uptown, right there next to the lush parks and Camp Nou, the home of Barça, and you’ll have a date with the smug Sofia, who sometimes talks about herself in the first person and whose rooms have names like Harmony, Sphere and Infinity.The spa itself is called Oasis, and that’s where you can choose from almost 40 treatments, including a suite designed especially for travelers (help with jetlag!), another with exclusive treatments for men, and Natura Bissé signature rituals – even products made of Moroccan damask rose and diamond powder are used as exfoliants.this lady really knows what she’s doing.
5.Sir Victor Hotel Barcelona ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Ommmm… zzzzz.the same words you could use to describe Hotel Omm (modern, beautiful, comfortable, designer…) can be attributed to its small but perfectly formed Spaciomm spa.If we add to that list the quiet, private and perfectly lit, we’re talking about this special place that feels light years away from your address in the centre of town. You can opt for the water circuit, a rather generous offer with a whirlpool, a foot bath, an ice fountain and variable temperature showers, but bear in mind that you may want more afterwards.To avoid arguments with your future self, go ahead and reserve for a treatment or ritual.the treatments end with a moment of intense calm in a gravitational bed that you will never want to leave.
6.Hotel Miramar Barcelona GL ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Your first moment of well-being comes when you head for the privileged surroundings of the hotel on Montjuïc Mountain.Sure, there’s a spectacular outdoor pool that invites you to «dive into the sky», and you can look at those views all day long, but when you want your spa treatment, you want your spa treatment. The biggest surprise factor at the L’Occitane Spa is the indoor pool that receives natural light from a huge window with a waterfall.That said, your personalized treatment is not far behind either, with a host of options for you to get better, including several focused on men, and even a selection for children and teens.
7.ABaC Restaurant Hotel Barcelona GL Monument ⭐⭐⭐⭐
When a hotel’s name has the word «restaurant» in it, you know what its great selling point is.
