Castell d'Empordà said it joined HotelREZ Hotels & Resorts' independent hotel portfolio in Spain. HotelREZ will provide the Catalan boutique hotel with GDS representation under the HO chain code, as well as sales and marketing services, together with local partner Qualis Hospitality.
The privately-owned Hotel Castell d'Empordà is set in a 14th century castle, located in the peaceful rural Emporda region, halfway between Barcelona and the French border, just a few kilometers away from some of Costa Brava's beaches. Standing on a property that covers almost 12 hectares of ancient oak and olive groves, Castell d'Empordà offers four meeting and events rooms, two fine dining options, the Drac Restaurant and Tres Margarit, and an outdoor swimming pool offering panoramic views over the grounds.
The 38 bedrooms and suites are decorated with furniture and textiles, carefully selected by the hotel's owners during their many travels around the world. In-room facilities and amenities include complimentary WiFi, a flat screen TV, a DVD player and a modern en-suite with complimentary luxury toiletries. Most rooms feature a balcony or large French-style windows boasting views of the garden and mountains. Given its unique surroundings and history, the property has also acquired a reputation as one of the best wedding venues in Spain, offering two beautiful ceremony options: the olive garden and the on-site Remei chapel.
