A charming hotel in Spain. A taste sensation. A wellness experience. Welcome to Magdalena Davó Beltrá’s hotel.
“ Guests who come to stay with us should know we’re an ‘experience’ hotel, and more specifically, a ‘wellness’ hotel. ”
The 3-star Hotel Spa La Romana, The Originals Relaisa is a world apart. On the one hand, the austere lines of a red-brick building, the spa, and on the other, a large traditional family home, the hotel. “It’s the farm I grew up on”, explains Magdalena. In 2012, working on the financial markets, she decided to expand her family home and create “a beautiful and calming place where you can feel at peace”. The estate, found on the outskirts of La Romana village between vineyards and marble quarries, took on a new lease of life. The farmhouse was totally redesigned, with a restaurant and spa later added. Stone, wood, iron and marble were all used in the works, all taken directly from the local region. Bio-climate architecture, solar panels... “I wanted to leave the smallest footprint on the earth as possible”. Our La Romana accommodation is certainly a place that respects the environment. A place where you learn to respect yourself by leaving all your stresses at the door. “My greatest joy is when my guests leave so much more relaxed and happier than they were when they arrived” .
All our 18 rooms at the Hotel Spa La Romana, The Originals Relais are housed within the estate’s former farmhouse. But don’t be on the lookout for tradition (apart from the odd beam here and there). Here, modernity, Zen and stripping back the fuss reign supreme. Clean lines, and no ostentatious decoration. On the floor, you’ll find marble or parquet. On the walls, white or light grey throughout. All the surfaces are beautifully finished, with high-quality comforts. The upstairs rooms have small balconies with views overlooking the vineyards and almond trees.

Hotel Spa La Romana, The Originals Relais provides you with an authentic taste experience among restaurants in La Romana. From the breakfast buffet made with local, organic and homemade products, to dinner, there really is something for everyone. “Our goal is to bring every culinary sensation together around the same table”, says Magdalena, the hotel’s owner. Vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and guests with unrestricted diets can all enjoy the fine Mediterranean cuisine out on the terrace or in the charming dining room and its bar, decorated in soft whites, greys and pale green tones.
Any more than a moment spent at the Hotel Spa La Romana, The Originals Relais, in its exceptional location, is to experience true relaxation and well-being, either for a day, a weekend, as a couple or with your family.
Built with natural red stones from Alicante, the spa can be found just next to the outdoor pool. Designed as a 21st century Turkish bath, its clean lines conceal a hot-water pool (32°C) with waterfall, a Jacuzzi, a Turkish bath and several cabins, where ayurvedic treatments are available (massages, reflexology, body treatments, etc.). An experience and a place like no other.
THINGS TO DOThe hotel and its partners can offer a wide variety of local activities, including hiking, horse riding and cycling, as well as visits to local wine cellars and sightseeing excursions. Within the hotel itself, there’s a wellness-and-more programme available to guests, which includes yoga classes, massages, meditation sessions and nutritional advice from a life coach. Dance classes, cocktail tastings and barbecues are also often organised by the hotel.
THINGS TO SEE NEARBYThe Costa Blanca and its magnificent beaches (unfortunately some areas have been concreted over); Alicante, one of the biggest cities in the region and a beautiful port city, overlooked by the castle of Santa Bárbara, which has paid witness to all the civilisations who have called the city home; Elche, its palm grove, the largest in all of Europe (200,000 trees) and officially a UNESCO heritage site, but also its many remains of the Al-Andalus and Baroque periods; the Vinalopó castle trail, which has seen many an ancient battle fought in the region, particularly around the time of El Cid, the famous medieval Spanish knight; the region’s many natural parks, including Salinas de Santa Pola, Lagunas de la Mata and Torrevieja, El Montgó, etc.
