Live a Grand experience during your vacation in Havana
The first of the urban getaways that we propose will take you to Havana. The capital of Cuba looks like it never has before after having completed its first 500 years amongst decadent palaces, baroque churches and historic bars, apart from the music that arrives from the malecón, which marks the sound of the city while an old Cadillac crosses the timeless Paseo del Prado.
A few meters from all these wonders, you can take your time to admire the building in which you are going to stay these days: the hotel in Havana Iberostar Grand Packard, the luxurious and reconstructed 5-star hotel, whose rooms welcomed celebrities like Pablo Neruda or Marlon Brando in its day.
Concierge or 24-hour room services will make you stay in your room unique, while you rest on a comfortable hammock next to the hotel pool located on the sixth floor, with the best panoramic views of Havana, enjoying a good aged rum or a refreshing daiquiri at your own pace.
At lunchtime you can choose the option that most seduces you without leaving the hotel: the delicatessen of the Biscuit restaurant, the Creole specialties - Ropavieja, ajiaco or banana fufu – offered at the Tradiciones restaurant or the delicious and original tapas of the Español restaurant.
And say goodbye to your worries in its fantastic spa! In its hydrotherapy area with sauna, hammam and hot tub, in addition to its double and individual massage cabins, you will surely be stress-free!
Taking a romantic boat trip on the illuminated Danube, discovering the legends of Buda Castle, going shopping along the luxurious Andrássy Avenue or having a few beers in the classic ruin bars of Budapest are activities that will undoubtedly top up your trip.
But if you want to live a truly relaxing experience, at the hotel in Budapest Iberostar Grand Budapest, designed by Philippe Stark, you will fulfill all your desires and needs, with the help, whenever you need it, of the hotel's virtual concierge.
In Spa Sensations you will free yourself of all your worries by enjoying the steam baths and the hydromassage area, in addition to being able to choose the massage you prefer to forget the tensions before returning home as new.
And with the hand of chef Alessandro Smanio you will touch the sky with the most authentic flavors of Italian cuisine at Na´Pasta Bistro, the hotel’s restaurant, whose homemade pasta and large selection of Italian wines will not be forgotten.
Reconnect with your inner self without leaving your hotel in Lisbon
Ah, the bohemian Lisbon! With the labyrinthic and steep stone streets of the Alfama neighborhood, the most traditional in the city, on the banks of the Tagus River, its intimate candlelit coffee shops, the perfect place to attend a fado recital at night, and its small taverns where you can enjoy cod prepared in the most varied ways.
Lisbon is one of those urban getaways that will captivate you from the first moment with its nostalgic magic and the colors of its tiles that go back to times gone by.
But if you also want to disconnect from your daily routine to the fullest after enriching your soul with a walk across the city, you could not stay in a better place than the Iberostar Selection Lisboa, a 5-star hotel that is two steps away from the emblematic Via da Liberdade.
If you don’t want to step away from your routine these days, the hotel has a very complete gym that is open 24 hours a day, so you can exercise at any time you want.
And wouldn't you also like to indulge in a massage with essential oils, before or after relaxing in the steam room and the hydromassage area?
When you are ready to go down to dine, the gourmet restaurant Luz, located within your hotel in Lisbon, will pleasantly surprise you. Its recipes are prepared with care and are based on the traditional cod, in addition to other fresh seasonal seafood and tasty meats and rice that honor the Rich Portuguese gastronomic culture.
Getaway to Marrakech: relaxing, romantic and gastronomic
In Marrakech’s palm grove, with more than 100,000 palm trees planted during the Almoravid dynasty, you will find the Iberostar Club Palmeraie Marrakech. It is just 15 minutes from the medina, the historic center of the city, which houses treasures such as the emblematic Jamaa square The Fna, the Koutoubia mosque or the Bahia Palace, within one of the most inspiring urban getaways that you will ever experience.
And after your visit to this exotic enclave, the best is still to come! A new and spacious hotel, with two swimming pools, one of them heated and for adults only.
In this hotel with spa you can relax in the Turkish bath, the sauna, the massages and the different health and beauty treatments. And, of course, in the classic hammam, so characteristic of this land.
The main course arrives, literally, at dinner time. Moroccan cuisine is an invitation for the senses and in the Jawhara themed restaurant you can experience the explosion of sweet and savory flavors; for example, tasting chicken and almond pastry, dishes cooked in its juice with the traditional tagine, roasted lamb and, of course, one of its most famous recipes: couscous.
