Our review : Mas de Torrent on the Costa Brava

Mas Torrent is undeniably one of the most beautiful hotels on Spain’ s Costa Brava. Easily accessible from France, it’s well worth a visit for a weekend or more. Pascal Languillon, director of Luxe Wellness Club, had the pleasure of staying there and enjoying its lovely spa. He shares his experience in the story below.

One of the best 5-star hotels in Catalonia

In the Catalan hinterland, close to Begur, Mas de Torrent is a tastefully renovated farmhouse that cultivates the discreet luxury I love so much. This Relais & Châteaux boasts just 39 suites, including 7 with private pools. The style is rustic chic, with designer furniture set between stone walls, vaulted ceilings and terracotta floor tiles. Mediterranean gardens filled with lavender, rosemary and bougainvillea add charm to the property.

The huge swimming pool is the heart of the hotel. Shaded loungers and sunbathing areas are ideal for lazing around, complemented by bar service.

This is a home where nothing is left to chance. It’s both simple and tasteful, and the general atmosphere of the hotel is peaceful and relaxing. I enjoyed the gentle landscape and the close proximity to Bégur and the village of Pals. We’re so close to France (only 3 hours from Montpellier or Toulouse by car), and yet we feel so far away.

Mas de Torrent offers a wide range of activities all year round: golf tournaments, cycling, antique workshops, cocktail master classes, wine tastings, wellness programs and yoga retreats.

I stayed in a beautiful 55 m² Pool Suite. This room allowed me to enjoy maximum privacy thanks to its private pool 5 x 2.5 metres. There’s also an outside table, a bench and two deckchairs… enough to spend all your time without leaving the suite, but it would be a shame not to take advantage of the rest of the hotel, as we’ll see below.

The suite features a comfortable living room and a large dressing room. The huge, modern bathroom features products from Finca Serena, the Majorcan home of the small luxury hotel group Unico Hotels. The oil served at table also comes from Finca Serena.

I love this kind of minimalist atmosphere, with white linen furniture and ceramics.

I was able to visit the other room categories, which are all beautiful. The Nature Suite, made entirely of natural materials, offers a superb view of the countryside. The Residence Suite, 145 m² in size, comprises a spacious living room, dining room, kitchen and two bedrooms, with garden and private heated pool.

A lovely spa and excellent yoga classes

I had come to stay here mainly to discover “le Mas Spa”, which I had heard so much about. At 600 m² in size, it is equipped with a indoor pool, a hydrotherapy area, sauna, hammam and cabins facing the garden, where massages are given using excellent Natura Bissé products, all completed by a variety of relaxing lounges and terrace to practice yoga.

I had a high-quality body massage, with a gentle and competent therapist. Special mention must also go to the hydrotherapy area, with its hot and cold pools.

Every morning, Mas Spa offers yoga classes with an excellent teacher, Mireia Sabater Oliu. The course I took was on the terrace, but it sometimes takes place on the grass or in an indoor room, depending on the weather. I appreciated the precision and gentleness of this charming teacher, who allowed me to stretch my muscles deeply.

A pleasure on the taste buds

Helmed by Michelin-starred Catalan chef Ramón Freixa, the cuisine at Mas de Torrent celebrates the region’s produce. It brilliantly combines tradition and modernity in creative menus. I really liked the terrace and its beautiful view. The service is very attentive, and the wines delicious (there are said to be over 700 bottles from all over the world).

Breakfast and lunch are served in the poolside restaurant, which has a more relaxed atmosphere. Breakfast includes à la carte dishes and a buffet with a wide selection of pastries, cereals, fruit, yoghurts, freshly squeezed fruit juices, cold meats and more. And let’s not forget the healthy and gluten-free options . For my part, I ate a delicious blend of fruit and chia seeds – wellness obliges!

Among the dishes I tasted, I particularly remember an excellent gazpacho, revisited in the Mas de Torrent style, and succulent mussels.

Our feeling

Mas de Torrent is a hotel with everything to please. Pleasant rooms, some with private swimming pools (a real luxury in the region), a well-cared-for Mediterranean ambience, and a top-quality spa. Add to this excellent yoga classes and healthy yet gourmet cuisine, and you’ll understand why Mas de Torrent should be a must-stop if you’re staying in Catalonia.
