10 Night Luxury Valencia Holiday Including 5* Hotel And Flights
I have found the perfect getaway deal, combining luxury, an amazing city, a spa hotel, a great beach and, most importantly, a phenomenal price! A luxury Valencia holiday really has it all, as you’ll be staying in the heart of one of Spain’s coolest cities in a 5* hotel right by the city park just a short way away from a huge sandy beach perfect for lazy days spent by the sea. Your hotel also has a swish spa and relaxation area and a rooftop pool, so you can have a morning dip under the Spanish sun in the middle of the city. This truly is the perfect holiday.
With this fabulous package from Expedia you will be spending 10 nights in a luxury 5* hotel in the city centre of Valencia, perfect for time spent at the pool, on the beach or exploring the city, and have your flights included, all for just £351 per person. This trip is the perfect combination of warm weather, great beach, cool city break and of course 5* luxury. Don’t worry about the weather either – I took the picture of the beach below in October!

The 5* SH Valencia Palace is an oasis of luxury right in the heart of the city, located next to the main city park and just a short way away from all of the sights and, all importantly, the beach. The hotel has a pool as well as great spa facilities and a bar with delicious cocktails. The spa has 4 treatment rooms including rooms for couples, and services include massages, facials, body wraps, and body scrubs. A variety of treatment therapies are provided, including aromatherapy. The spa is also equipped with a sauna and a spa tub. There’s also free WiFi for those of you that can’t face the idea of 10 nights without internet access. Probably the best thing about this hotel, aside from its luxuriousness, is it’s location – you really are perfectly situated to make the most of your 10 nights in the amazing city. This hotel scores 4/5 on TripAdvisor.
Valencia is one of Spain’s coolest cities with a laid back, studenty vibe and a fascinating history. The student population here also keeps the nightlife fresh and interesting, and Valencia retains a unique feel that blends cosmopolitan Catalonia with the siesta-style chill of the rest of Spain. The Old Town is utterly gorgeous and you’ll be able to spend days wondering around the area around the cathedral, exploring the many museums and historic sights. A good bet for food in this part of town is La Bodeguilla del Gato, a sweet little tapas bar located in a back alley that has a great mix of Spanish and more international clientele. Although better tapas can be had in the city this restaurant is a great place to start off, giving you an idea of typical Valencian specialities for a very reasonable price. There’s far more to Valencia than just the old town though, with the modern City Of Arts And Sciences rising like a futuristic spaceship from the shoreline and housing a range of cultural facilities. Just along the coast, and an easy cycle or tube journey from your hotel, you’ll find the massive sandy beach of Valencia, the Playa de la Malvarrosa, which has some great beachfront tapas bars and is far less touristy than you’d expect being just a stone’s throw away from the city centre. Make sure to try the local tipple, Agua de Valencia, during your trip, but don’t get carried away – this seductively sweet drink is surprisingly strong and you’ll be up against locals used to holing their liquor!
Valencia is the perfect combination of city and beach, historic and modern, and with a climate that means you can make the most of it well into October. With a price like this for 10 nights of 5* luxury in the middle of a world-class European city you really don’t have to think twice – a luxury Valencia holiday has everything you could possibly want from you Spanish getaway and more!
