Valencia beach hotels: luxurious spas, sea views and private hot tubs

An intriguing juxtaposition of antiquity and modernity, Valencia offers historical details and Michelin-starred restaurants side by side in the same hotel.

Discover Valencia beach hotels with rooftop pools, lavish spas and palatial interiors nestled amid the grand architecture of this popular port city.

Spend your days sightseeing and your evenings surveying the glittering skyline from the hotel spa or your private Jacuzzi.

The gems in our selection, all just a stroll away from the golden sands of Las Arenas and the lapis-blue Mediterranean Sea, are just waiting to be uncovered.

A Valencia beach hotel inside a grand historic building

Behind the facade of the majestic 19th-century palace that houses Hospes Palau de la Mar hotel is an invitingly tranquil retreat. Slip into the bubbling Jacuzzi pool at Bodyna Spa and let the jets soothe your muscles, before you detox in the sauna or Turkish bath. Revive your skin with an exfoliating and aromatic salt and spice scrub, or treat your feet after a day of city sightseeing with a tension-relieving reflexology treatment.

Evening meals are served in the intimate Ampar Restaurant, which is decorated in elegant pale grey and charcoal hues. Reserve a table nestled in an alcove, then settle yourself on cushioned velvet seating for a romantic meal of traditional Valencian cuisine. The kitchen here prepares Mediterranean dishes with locally caught fish, such as classic rice plates featuring prawns, cuttlefish and plankton.

Your room at the Hospes Palau de la Mar is an exercise in chic minimalism. Calming neutral tones on the walls are offset by dark exotic-wood floors. Details like modern lighting and furniture are balanced with subtle historical aspects, including original woodwork, locks and floral details from the hotel’s past as a grand manor house. Take a long soak in the elegant marble bathroom before rolling into a sumptuous bed covered in soft Egyptian cotton linens.

A boutique Valencia beach hotel with a seafront restaurant

Quirky details like the trumpet chandelier in the entrance and sculptural murals in the restaurant exemplify this boutique hotel’s gently offbeat aesthetic. These striking creations reference artwork by Valencian artist Sorolla and are inspired by the water, just steps from Hotel Balandret’s doors.

Rooms here have a minimalist Nordic aesthetic with industrial lighting, homely textiles and modern amenities such as Nespresso machines. Sit back in a Scandinavian-style cane chair in the window seating area for relaxing views onto the beach or the hotel’s courtyard. Freshening up in the sleek wood-panelled bathroom, with its cascading rainfall shower, feels almost like being in a mini spa. To make your stay even more special, opt for the Deluxe Suite, decorated in chic grey tones and featuring a Jacuzzi bath. You can appreciate a sea view while you bask in the bubbles, perhaps with a glass of sparkling wine.

The hotel makes the most of its oceanfront location with an outdoor terrace leading out from Balandret Restaurant. Wander through the dining room, adorned with local artwork, to sit beneath the shade of a canopy and palm trees. The kitchen serves traditional dishes with a twist – think battered calamari with curry mayonnaise – and home-made desserts created by in-house pastry chef Paco Hernández.

For more views of the city, visit the secret-garden-style rooftop terrace bar. Relax on a white leather seat, surrounded by leafy palms and bushes on a faux grass floor. You can sip on a speciality G&T or try mojitos made with innovative flavour combinations, like Jägermeister with tart strawberries, as you watch the sun dip over the city. At lunch or dinner, opt for fine dining in the Albufera Restaurant, where you can sample Valencian dishes made with local produce and delicacies like cured Iberico ham.

A Valencia beach hotel with private outdoor hot tubs

The lavish rooms at the Westin Valencia take subtle inspiration from Art Deco style, with striped wallpaper, geometric ceiling lights and vintage-look sofas and armchairs. After a long journey, sink into your bed’s fresh white sheets – or better yet, some bubbles in your marble bathtub. For additional luxury, spoil yourself with a stay in a room featuring a walled balcony and your own Jacuzzi.

When you’re ready to leave your private haven, visit the hotel’s spa to float the day away in plunge pools and therapy baths, or detox in the steam room. Choose a revitalising treatment, such as a body scrub and wrap, or arrange a couple’s massage and be pampered in a room designed for two.

A walk across the polished marble floors of the lobby, beneath the sparkling chandelier, takes you to the hotel’s Rosmarino breakfast room. In the afternoon and evening, dine al-fresco on the elegant terrace of El Jardi surrounded by the hotel’s scented Mediterranean garden of palm trees and native plants. Or, book a table in the Komori Restaurant to be transported to Eastern Asia through dishes combining Japanese cuisine and Spanish flavours, like tuna tataki and black olive salad.

A secret rooftop pool at this Valencia beach hotel

Standing tall in a quiet area of the city, the NH Valencia Centre hotel’s rooftop holds hidden delights, including a pool with a retractable roof. Swim lengths in the serene waters while taking in panoramic views of the skyline through floor-to-ceiling windows. As the Spanish sunshine warms the terracotta-tiled rooftop terrace, sit back and sip on an ice cold beer or fruity cocktail – simply call room service and a waiter will bring your order up.

Downstairs, the hotel’s restaurant, with polished floors and walls of honey-coloured wood, offers lunch and dinner menus that feature Mediterranean, Valencian and international dishes. Take a seat at one of the round tables to dine on innovations made with seasonal produce, like fideuá – a type of paella made with shellfish and noodles.

Stay in a modern room with hardwood flooring, dark wood furnishings and refined, neutral décor. After a day of exploring the city, sink into your large bed with cosy textiles or rest your feet on the cushioned chairs by the window. Each space features bright full-sized windows looking out over Valencia and the manicured grounds of Turia Park, stretching into the distance. In the sleek marble bathroom, there’s a tub with a shower, along with little luxuries such as fluffy bathrobes and slippers in the suites.

A Valencia beach hotel with Michelin-star restaurant

Once a palace, Caro Hotel is now an upscale boutique hotel encompassing a Michelin-starred restaurant and a fascinating selection of historical artefacts. The restaurant itself (Sucede) is centred around a preserved section of the ancient Arabic wall that previously surrounded the city. Innovative creations from the kitchen send you on a gastronomic journey through Valencia’s history as a Roman, Arab and Christian settlement. You can order from a menu featuring between eight and 13 courses, including dishes like pickled sweetbreads and tuna belly tempura or quail and sea cucumber stew.

Each room in this quirky hotel has been carefully restored to preserve many of the building’s original elements, from patterned tiles to 2,000-year-old blocks of blue marble. Unpack your bags in the sunny Palace Kitchen room, with its section of ancient stone wall and views over the interior patio. In the Marquis Suite, you’ll live like royalty, sleeping beneath an ornate rococo ceiling that once towered above a 19th-century ballroom.

On lazy days, lounge in the Spanish sunshine on the wood-decked terrace in the hotel courtyard. Out here, you can cool off with a refreshing dip in the raised open-air splash pool, or simply sit and sip a tangy Margarita at the pool’s edge.

A Valencia beach hotel on the sands of Las Arenas beach

Beachfront Hotel Las Arenas Balneario Resort offers far-reaching views across Las Arenas beach to the sparkling sea beyond. Gaze out across the water from the comfort of a cushioned lounger by the pool, or sit back on the outdoor porch to look out to sea through the swaying palm trees. Sip on refreshing drinks from the bar; perhaps a Cava cocktail created by former champion mixologist, Iván Martínez. Spanish dishes from Brasserie Sorolla Restaurant, such as Valencian chicken and rabbit paella, can be ordered to savour al-fresco.

The hotel spa’s hydro suite will truly invigorate your senses. Brave the refreshing temperatures of the ice fountain, then step underneath the aromatherapy shower to be calmed by soothing fragrances. To unwind further, opt for a relaxing and balancing Hindu massage or a stress-relieving ritual using the geothermal heat of stones.

Rooms, scattered with vintage-inspired furniture and eye-catching art, open out onto spacious balconies. In the morning, envelop yourself in your fluffy bathrobe and brew up a coffee from the capsule machine to enjoy on your sunny terrace with a view of the beach.
