I recently went on a Press Trip to Alicante, Spain and stayed at the most insane Bali inspired Hotel.
Grupo Huerto del Cura is a Bali inspired boutique hotel unlike any I have ever seen.
There is a main hotel building with a reception and a bar/restaurant and then all the rooms are outside… in buildings surrounding the incredible palm tree filled gardens.
The one thing I would say is it is unlike any hotel I have been to, it’s more like a resort. I was there on business visiting local Shoe factories and companies. Our days were very long and packed full of visits, as press / a fashion stylist I get invited to be introduced to brands that I may consider using for shoots etc… We didn’t have a lot of down time to enjoy the incredible pool and spa at the hotel but any time I did get I took loads of pictures and explored as much as possible.
This is a 4 star hotel, but honestly it felt more like 5 star. I suppose the food, which was good but it wasn’t insane… that could be the only thing holding it back. But the food was totally good enough!
The bedrooms were one big room with a separate bathroom, with a rustic wooden feel and marble touches. The bed was big and really comfortable, there was a hidden TV, a desk and lots of plugs. It had everything you need and was very dark and cosy for sleeping. I guess that was my only personal issue, the lack of natural light…. but that’s just because I like taking photos! The rooms were very cosy and it’s really what was outside of them that makes up this incredible hotel.
The breakfast buffet over looked the pool which was really amazing and had a lot of options even something for me… the gluten free, vegetarian.
I would love to go back and really get to explore it’s gardens, pool and spa. Take a look at my photos below to see what I mean. And hit their website for more… http://www.hotelhuertodelcura.com/
