    Our opinion

    In the perfect location for cultural and artistic exploration, the seafront Hotel Estela is a renowned contemporary art hotel. Original artworks in the bedrooms and rotating art exhibitions mean that no two stays at this city hotel are the same.

    Hotel description

    The contemporary five star Hotel Estela, otherwise known as the Hotel Del Arte, has been designed with modern art and state-of-the-art furnishings in mind. Best-suited to art-lovers looking to explore this cultural area of Spain, the Hotel Estela offers an entirely unique art hotel setting for an intriguing and fulfilling city break. Embrace Spanish Art, or learn some of the skills for yourself, before venturing out to explore the artistic marks left on Sitges and Barcelona by famous designers such as Gaudi. The Hotel Estela is located on the waterfront, beside the Sitges marina and its beaches. This offers guests the chance to appreciate the artistry of the Spanish horizon inland, as well as across the sea. From the outside, the elegant building is unassuming, aside from the exceptional seafront position, with little extravagance beside the travertine marble sculpture which spells the hotel’s name, a bronze sculpture by Dali, and a pink marble sculpture by Atchugarry. Yet, the interior is interspersed with bright, lively artworks, and calming modern sculptures. Beside the main staircase and along the hotel’s corridors, guests can uncover more fascinating works by the likes of Dali, Subirachs, Josep Bofill, and Lorenzo Quinn. Rooms are individually decorated from floor to ceiling, with either glamorous monochromatic centrepieces, or colourful paintings that subtly hark back to a more traditional Spain. Art coexists with delicious cuisine in the Iris Gallery Restaurant, which serves seasonal, fresh Mediterranean food with a creative twist. In the summer months, guests can choose to either dine on the terrace or amidst the exhibitions of the dining room. The poolside and gardens are tranquil, with dynamic sculptures emerging from the manicured grass, allowing the sounds and views of the sea to come into their own. On top of this, the hotel offers Art Workshops which truly submerge guests in the culture of the hotel, Reiki relaxation, and Physiotherapeutic Massages which aim to revitalise guests after days exploring Sitges, Tarragona, and Barcelona. The unique atmosphere of this enchanting city hotel will attract guests with a keen eye for art, as well as those looking to explore cultural Spain, for long, revitalising city breaks.
