Small Luxury Hotels of the World is kicking off 2020 by introducing five new exciting additions, three of which are in Europe. New hotels include an intimate adults-only hideaway in Barcelona, a sustainable Sicilian farmhouse and the brand’s first in Montenegro.
The Wittmore, Barcelona, Spain
Bringing a bit of the Big Apple to Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter, The Wittmore has a speakeasy vibe with its red velvet interiors, Bakelite telephones and adults-only, no-photography policy. The 22-room property has a baronial dining room decked out with tartan motifs and a fireplace, as well as a rooftop sun deck with yellow-and-white striped loungers, a plunge pool and views of the city. The Witty restaurant feels as if it’s straight out of a Wes Anderson film thanks to its bird-print wallpaper, dog-shaped salt and pepper shakers and an old-master-style oil painting of a fictional Lord Wittmore.
SLH Insider Tip: Every Thursday night, The Witty restaurant hosts musicians playing everything from jazz music to Spanish pop.
