Ever daydreamed about what it's like to walk the red carpet? Well, simply arriving at Hotel Arts will make you feel like a star.
It treats each guest who arrives through its five-star doors like royalty, and the celeb treatment doesn't stop there. If you're lucky enough to stay in one of the swish apartments (or on the VIP floors), you'll be given a complimentary Mini convertible to bomb around the city in. The Arts overlooks the sparkling Med, and a dip at some of the city's chicest beaches is moments away, but a sunbathe by the pool while contemplating Frank Gehry's looming golden fish sculpture takes some beating. Later, make sure you sample chef Sergi Arola's tapas on the elegant terrace, sangria in hand, and drink in the breathtaking views. Later still, it's a mere stroll - or zip in the Mini - to the buzzing historical centre of the city.
WOW FACTOR Access to the swish VIP lounge brings unlimited 24-hour food and free booze on tap.
