    Our opinion

    The Hopses Palacio de Arenales near Caceres is a charming five star luxury property best suited to cultural holidays in Extremadura and Spain, or indulgent Spa breaks.

    Hotel description

    The five star Hospes Palacio de Arenales sits on a quaint paved square, at the top of a long drive, just four miles west of Caceres. Perfect for luxury holidays to the Extremadura region in Central Spain, this hotel combines historic ambience with Spa relaxation, in an intriguing and cultural part of the country. Immediate impressions of this rural retreat reflect all the character of its 17th Century beginnings, evident in the stone-framed windows and white-washed walls. At night, this square is atmospherically lit by a single wrought iron lamp. Inside, chic contemporary design complements historical features; a soothing neutral palette blends with exposed stone walls, beamed ceilings, and low archways. Lounge areas with tiled floors and innovative lighting offer guests unique and elegant places to relax; a feel that is continued into the simplistic but indulgent bedrooms. Dark wood four-poster beds, Egyptian cotton bed linen, and the addition of such luxuries as American Curl bath towels complete the five star quality of this hotel. During the day, relax on the terrace beside the outdoor pool, or in the bubbling pool and Jacuzzi of the Bodyna Spa. A wide range of tailored luxury massages and treatments are available for guests’ enjoyment. The classical furnishings, palette of earthy colours, and modern art of the dining room at Restaurante Las Corchuelas allow the flavours and presentation of the food to take centre-stage. Dishes fuse traditional Extremaduran cuisine with creative, innovative twists, all served with excellent local wines. The Café on the summer terrace is open for tapas, ice cream, and cooling drinks. The facilities and historic location of this luxury hotel make it ideal for both week-long holidays and relaxing short stays as part of a longer cultural tour. The Hospes Palacio de Arenales is quintessential when it comes to settings for luxury holidays in Spain.
