We understand that no one aims to come in second place; there is no recognition for mediocrity. We at Five Star Alliance understand better than anyone the importance of offering the most luxurious resorts in the world, so we notice what’s going on in the industry, and it matters to us, because it matters to you. We work hard to offer you the best in the industry, and we’d like to welcome you to our second blog series where we feature the best and most luxurious resorts in the world. But don’t take our word for it. These resorts have been recognized as the best in the business and have made the prestigious Condé Nast Traveler Gold List 2012.
The Condé Nast Traveler Gold List 2012 is the eighth of their annual lists, and the hotels chosen by their team of editors and experts are the best for service, food, location, rooms, leisure facilities, ambiance and design.
The Mandarin Oriental Barcelona is featured on the Gold List 2012: Best for ambience and design. This luxury hotel offers some of the most exclusive accommodations in Barcelona with only 98 rooms and suites. Its modern designs incorporate subtle reflections of their oriental heritage, and it is a staple hotel in the Mandarin Oriental collection. Views are either of their interior garden or the Passeig de Gracia, a stylish boulevard. A number of guest rooms have a balcony or terrace allowing guests to take in the sweeping beauty of Barcelona. The charm behind this hotel is certainly in its design, for it has the feel of a small, personal boutique hotel, but provides the amenities and service expected from an established, large hotel.
