While the bedrooms are divided into three categories, it’s the Akelarre Suites that stand out most with 1,076 sq ft of space comprising an expansive terrace, private plunge pool and dressing room, as well as the finest contemporary furnishings and state-of-the-art technology including Bang & Olufsen sound systems and Apple TV. In fact, the Akelarre Suites, Deluxe Sea View Rooms and Double Sea View Rooms all encompass floor-to-ceiling windows and furnished terraces making them ideal for seeing the sun go down.
In addition to the three Michelin starred restaurant Akelarre, the hotel is home to the new dining space Oteiza, which offers a Basque menu designed by chef Subijana and a relaxed dining setting. The hotel also takes pride in its wine cellar where wine tastings and private events are hosted at a communal table.
The gastronomic offering is complemented by the inclusion of a Spa and Wellness area incorporating a relaxation area, swimming pool, hydrotherapy circuit, steam bath and sauna, plus three treatment rooms where spa therapies by Sisley are offered.
Located just outside San Sebastian, the hotel provides an ideal base for further exploration with complimentary transfers for guests to the city’s cobbled streets, beaches and pintxos bars. But of course, a stay at the hotel wouldn’t be complete without sampling the cuisine of the chef credited for being one of the founders of New Basque cuisine at the lauded restaurant this hotel has joined.
Rooms start from $350 per night. akelarre.net
