An oasis close to Barcelona, just 11 minutes from the idyllic Tossa de Mar, that maintains the unique offer of the ZEL brand: a home away from home where relaxation and fun intertwine.

Palma de Mallorca - Following on from the success of ZEL Mallorca, the first hotel by Meliá Hotels International and Rafa Nadal, the brand will expand its presence this summer with a second property on the beautiful Costa Brava: ZEL Costa Brava. The hotel will open in June and is set to become the place to be for those who love to party and nap - fiesta and siesta - alike.

ZEL Costa Brava ​​combines an experience of active well-being, rest and fun, with a wide array of relaxation and well-being activities available in the hotel to revitalise the body and mind while connecting guests with an active lifestyle community.

“I loved ZEL Costa Brava as soon as I saw it,” said Rafa Nadal, brand co-creator with Meliá and inspiration of the ZEL brand. “Its architecture integrated into nature, together with the interior design work developed to adapt it to the ZEL philosophy have resulted in an emblematic and unique hotel in which I hope to have a great time in the future”.

Furthermore, ZEL Costa Brava guests can enjoy up to 46 different sports activities, thanks to its facilities and prime location: court sports such as tennis, soccer-tennis, basketball, hockey, table tennis, beach volleyball or water polo, to nature sports such as Nordic walking, running, cycling, trekking or CrossFit and yoga, Pilates, dance, or jiu-jitsu and water sports in the sea in its 25 m2 semi-Olympic pool.

As part of the famous ZEL Club, activities are organised weekly for guests to participate in which include swimming circuits, group running sessions, painting, creative cooking classes and social gatherings such as “verbenas” and other festive experiences in its various leisure and dining venues.

In this sense, the hotel will have a Beach Club in Cala Giverola, offering guests the finest Mediterranean cuisine for a unique and top-quality dining experience. There will also be a lobby bar, a food truck, a beach bar and several terraces.

The hotel has a large meeting room that can be split into three for events and complementary team-building activities.

A destination between the sea and the mountains

The hotel has 214 rooms and suites that are completely immersed in nature and are distributed in several 1, 2 and 3 room categories called Suites, Junior Suites, Casa ZEL and Duplex, all of them with sea, mountains or garden views or, in most cases, a combination of the three. The rooms feature CREATE® appliances, and the toiletries are specially selected creations by personal care brand HAAN®. The brand has disrupted the market with its innovative and ground-breaking products, along with its eco-friendly approach.

In addition, ZEL Costa Brava has respected the original organic architecture, always seeking its integration into the environment based on ZEL hotels’ outdoor living philosophy, featuring a design based on natural materials and elements and dynamic outdoor spaces.

As for spaces, the hotel has a main “patio” that will serve as a meeting point for guests, an ideal location to enjoy specialty coffee from Café de Finca or purchase local and international products as souvenirs.

ZEL Costa Brava is located in Cala Giverola, a few minutes from the iconic Tossa de Mar, just 33 km from the Girona-Costa Brava International Airport and 109 km from Barcelona. The hotel is located in an area that exemplifies the perfect fusion of its rich ancestral culture with the extraordinary beauty of its beaches and steep cliffs, which in the past were filming locations for Hollywood films such as “Pandora and the Flying Dutchman.” The area boasts attractions including Tossa del Mar castle, the Vila Vella, the Ametllers Roman Villa, and some of the most Instagrammable spots on the Spanish coastline.
