Upon entry, guests are greeted with a glass of cava and delicate mini-cakes.

Just off the lobby a small restaurant with soaring ceilings offers an intimate yet dramatic retreat to Andalusian cuisine with a modern twist. The adjacent cocktail bar carries through the ground level’s rich earth tones while adding drama and sparkle via a ‘vertiginous’ wall of liquors and spirits.

On top of it all lies a new rooftop terrace complete with stainless steel plunge pool, perfectly designed for Seville’s welcoming climate. By day, guests can sunbathe and enjoy fresh cocktails, while come evening they’re treated to unhurried sunsets and starry night skies.
