Escape to W Barcelona

Escape, Featured

City breaks can be exhausting. Especially when you’re planning a reunion with friends between visits to the Sagrada Familia, Picasso museum and that restaurant everyone keeps banging on about, while finding time for a fitness class in-between…

But it doesn’t need to be stressful. Book a stay at W Barcelona and balance your tapas, sightseeing and cava, with a SUP class, run club or pilates, and a spot of pampering in-between…

At the top of our list is an outdoor bootcamp with Urban Gorillas. Try a group class on the beach to take advantage of the sunshine. We recommend a session with Brent. His circuit of running drills and burpees will leave you sweating like an Ibérico ham!

This heart pumping, challenging workout is suited to all fitness levels and is a great way to balance out the weekend. Plus your first class is free so there’s really no excuse!

If outdoor workouts are not your thing, head to the 24 hour gym and take in spectacular views over Barcelona’s coastline while you work out. Find treadmills, ellipticals, bikes, stair climbers and weights. Plus a timetable of yoga, pilates and boxing classes.

Now it’s time for a treat! After a blood pumping session, your muscles deserve a reward in the Bliss Spa. We should tell you about the excellent treatment menu, relaxation lounge and spacious luxurious changing facilities. But one thing that cannot go without a mention is the brownies!

No, they’re not healthy. They’re a little bite of mouth watering excellence that live in the spa waiting lounge that you absolutely must try… They are bite size after all!

We recommend the signature ‘blissage’ massage – from 110 Euros. Your muscles will thank you – trust us.
