28 Jan Be our Guest… Barcelona
We were lucky enough to be invited along to DBF’s ‘Be Our Guest’ trip to Barcelona to showcase their favourites suppliers! Here’s what we got up to…
After an early morning rise, I headed over to London Heathrow airport to catch one of the many daily direct flights on British Airways to Barcelona. With the great hand luggage allowances, it makes it super easy for a couple of nights getaway! Before you know it I had landed in the sunny destination and was on route to the NH Collection Barcelona Constanza Hotel for lunch and a show around! I sampled the local wine and tasted a lovely 3-course lunch menu, which really kicked off the start to my 48 hours in Barcelona! The NH Barcelona Constanza Hotel had some really great meeting spaces – ideal for groups of up to 100! Next, we made our way over to the NH Collection Grand Hotel Calderon Barcelona, which was located smack bang in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Barcelona! Not only does this five-star hotel have a great location it has great meeting and event spaces. My personal favourite feature of the hotel was its amazing rooftop pool and deck – the views were incredible! After an afternoon of 1-1 meetings with a few European hotels and DMC’s, it was time to unwind with a few delicious cocktails over a Tapas style dinner in the hotel’s 11th-floor bar!
My morning began with a tasty hotel breakfast and was followed by a quick transfer to the harbour, to board our boat to a local wine estate with AIM Group DMC services! The sun was shining on my skin and the wind was in my hair – what more could you want! We then drove down a windy narrow road and came to the beautiful wine estate! After a show around and explanation of the wine estate, it was time to sample the goods! A Barcelona Rose is one of a kind – I would highly recommend! It was sadly time to depart for the airport and after the past 48 hours being so jam-packed it was no surprise that everyone had a quick snooze! Barcelona, until next time…
