This week I want to tell you about my birthday celebration in Barcelona, the famous #RoviParty! For the past two years I had been celebrating my birthday away from home, in Egypt and Mexico and this year I wanted to do something special in my lovely city Barcelona.
I decided to go on a staycation to my favourite hotel, The Cotton House, grab my closest group of friends and invite them to celebrate with me this special day!
Wanna know how to celebrate your birthday in Barcelona? Keep reading!
WHERE TO STAY: COTTON HOUSE HOTEL:
My favourite and coolest hotel in Barcelona, The Cotton House, is a 5 star luxury hotel in the heart of the city. The Cotton House hotel used to be the headquarters of the Cotton Textile Foundation in Barcelona, so the tradition for the Cotton experience continues nowadays at the hotel, where you can design and purchase your own custom shirt. The hotel was built two years ago and decorated by one of the most famous designers in Barcelona that is Lazaro Rosa Violan, of whom I am super fan, all his places are so instagrammy and the Cotton is definitely one of them! From the library, to the outdoor patio, the restaurant and the rooftop pool.. You will love every corner at the Cotton House.
The room, I stayed on the top 6th floor with views to the beautiful patio and interior of the typical Eixample Barcelona square. The decoration is all white and Cotton inspired, of course, and I have to say I received an unforgettable welcome. My room was all decorated with balloons for my birthday and in the mirror they had written Happy bday Mon Rovi! Can I fall in love more with them? I don’t think so! I always say, the small details are what makes the difference and when we talk about 5 star hotels what makes the difference is the service. They custom made a greeting card with a picture of me taken from my Instagram ( you took a nice pic amigos ) wishing me a Happy bday it’s something you don’t find every day believe me. Extraordinary gesture. Also another day when I arrived to the room I found a gift bag with a room scent and a candle! So many presents I want to live here forever!!
Because one must be relaxed on their bday what better than getting a massage. In the hotel they have the Cotton Spa Suite which offers the services of the Mayan Luxury Spa. I recommend everyone in Barcelona to try them !!! Amazing massage… @mayanluxuryspa
In the hotel they also have the best room service (for the day after the RoviParty I just didn’t move from the room all day!) So I ordered the scrambled eggs, delicious and a burger also top top!
If you want to try the restaurant at the Cotton House, Batuar is also a wonderful experience. They offer a non stop service and not only the place is beautifully decorated, by Lazaro as well, the food is amazing. They have a mix between Mediterranean/ Spanish and international dishes, such as Indian tapas and Mexican and Peruvian dishes perfect to combine with their famous cocktails!
Dishes I totally recommend you try: the chicken tikka tapa, the ceviche, the beef tartar and the salmon! The hotel breakfast is also served here at the Batuar, fresh fruits, jamon, a variety of pastry including matcha cake.. best way to start the day!
Special thanks to the Cotton House team Sonia, Alfredo and Damian!
BIRTHDAY DINNER: CAN SOLÉ RESTAURANT
My birthday dinner celebration had to be something very special. So I called my favourite restaurant Can Solé in Barceloneta to organise it for me. I booked the second floor of the restaurant and had one big table for 20 of my friends. It’s not so easy to find a place who can set up such a big round table so everyone is together but they did it perfect. Decorated with rose petals and candles, it looked amazing. We had some drinks as the guests arrived and then head to the table.
The menu for the dinner was my favourite starters to share: Croquetas of foie and jamón, cod buñuelos, anchovies with bread and tomato and tomato salad with tuna.
As a main dish we had lobster fideuá that it’s a show on its own! Everyone loved it!
For dessert we had my birthday cake of course!
Thanks for the wonderful service and to all the team in Can Solé who I can always trust for the best meals in Barcelona!
