Founded in the year 2000, the hotel chain has established itself as a benchmark for luxury, personalized service, and avant-garde design.

Hospes, meaning “guest,” embodies the essence of our activity and encompasses concepts such as rest, repose, regeneration, and hospitality. We chose this name because it perfectly encapsulates a differential philosophy in hotel management in Spain and Portugal.

Committed to these principles, our current purpose is manifested in offering personalized vacation experiences. We carefully select unique architectural spaces with history, located in privileged enclaves of charming cities. These places are elegantly furnished, with sensitivity and maximum comfort, with the goal of turning them into authentic paradises of relaxation, disconnection, and comfort.

The concept of a spa hotel is complemented by additional services, gastronomy, quality, and exclusivity, specially designed to satisfy the most discerning guests. In summary, we offer exactly what you are looking for.
