    Our opinion

    The four star Mas Lazuli offers a combination of modern luxury and historic setting, with the additions of Spa facilities and nearby olive groves and vineyards.

    Hotel description

    The Mas Lazuli is an exclusive four star hotel in Catalonia with Spa and Wellness facilities, just a short distance from picturesque towns such as Figueres, Girona, and Cadaques. A converted 11th Century friary and country house surrounded by palm trees, the Mas Lazuli proudly looks out across the vineyards and olive groves of the Emporda region of Spain. Situated amidst the landscape that inspired the Mannerist painters, the saltwater infinity pool acts as a focal point in the hotel grounds. Inside, the Reception, Spa, and Wellness Centre make a feature of the dramatic low arched friary ceiling and the rustic stone walls. The 17 rooms and suites are light, airy, and refined, with an all-encompassing air of exclusivity. A neutral palette pervades, highlighting the soft tones of the original stone, and drawing attention to the splashes of colour in the signature pieces of modern art that adorn the walls. The restaurant’s chef, Jordi Dalmau, trained with Michelin-star chefs, and focuses his culinary imagination on adding innovative twists to Catalan dishes, without losing the heartiness that makes the regional cuisine so special. Dine inside the Mas Lazuli’s restaurant and watch the expert chefs at work in the open kitchen, or dine outside on the restaurant terrace, canopied by authentic wood and atmospheric lanterns that serve to frame the fantastic views. The Spa and Wellness Centre offer a number of unique health and beauty treatments, though guests can also enjoy the relaxing simplicity of massages and the Hammam. The olive groves and vineyards can be enjoyed up-close, not just from the comfort of your balcony, but on walks around the nearby countryside. By renting a bicycle from the hotel, or making the most of the hotel trips to Cadaques and the invigorating boat trips, guests can explore much more of the natural landscape around the beautiful Mas Lazuli. Use your hire car to travel a little further afield, perhaps continuing the modern art theme of the hotel by visiting the Dali museum in Figueres, or by driving south to Girona. Whatever activities you chose to enjoy on your stay at the Mas Lazuli, this luxury hotel provides a wonderfully relaxing base for your experience of the Spanish lifestyle.

    Out and aboutnearby/local interest

    Stay close to the hotel to sample some of the region’s finest produce in the olive groves or in the wine estate in pau. The nearby towns of Cadaques and Roses offer wonderful golden sandy beaches, boat trips, and other watersports, as well as a typically Spanish seaside feel. To explore Spain’s natural landscape, we would recommend walking or cycling through the L’Albera Natural Park, or through the Natural Park of El Cap de Creus to the Monastery at its centre. The traditionally Catalan city of Figueres is home to the famous, and quirky, Dali Museum, as well as grand fortresses.
