El Bulli Hotel Hacienda Benazuza

    Rebuilt in the Renaissance era, the hacienda is adorned with Spanish Baroque and sleek contemporary furniture, vaulted ceilings, and sweeping frescoes.

Accommodations The artworks and antiques vary in each of the 27 guest rooms and 17 suites. Recreation Swimming in a saltwater pool, horseback riding, golfing, hiking, and off-road driving in the surrounding countryside. Dining Michelin-two-star restaurant La Alquería features dishes from Ferran Adrià’s three-star El Bulli restaurant north of Barcelona. Worthy Diversion Learn the rudiments of bullfighting during a lesson at a nearby farm that raises toros for the grand ring in Seville. Rates From $445 for a standard double in low season to $1,770 for the Royal Suite during holidays.
