A cool hotel in a beautiful, historic setting, W Barcelona is a seriously sexy honeymoon option.

It's where the beautiful crowd go and you can expect lazy afternoons by the pool, people-watching - over a glass of Sangria.

This is one hotel where the emphasis is on partying. Take your pick from the Living Room lounge, poolside Wet Bar or head to the rooftop bar Eclipse for after-hours glamour.

From its position in the port, many of the 473 rooms, including 67 suites, have stunning water views and are kitted out with all the technology you could ever need. Even the curtains are electronically operated - assuming you can find the button!

WOW FACTOR: The energising Triple Oxygen facial at the Bliss Spa.

GO: Double rooms from £257 room only (whotels.com/barcelona). Easyjet (easyjet.com) flies from £92 return.
