Mas de Torrent offers the superlative service and excellent environment and amenities for which Relais & Chateaux are renowned. Inside the original building there are ten Masia Suite rooms individually named after flowers. Their interiors reflect the original period the property was built through antique decoration. Garden Suite rooms are located away from the main farmhouse, each with private terraces to soak up views of the manicured gardens and pool. For more privacy, however, you may wish to occupy one of the seven Naranjos Suites, each with a private pool and additional jacuzzi bathroom.
Cuisine at the hotel is offered from two Mediterranean restaurants and as with all Relais & Chateaux members they strive for the highest quality. Restaurant Mas de Torrent serves local Catalan food from a seasonal menu created by chef Jordi Garrido. The hotel's location near Spain's wine country means there is a plentiful wine list of over 400 to choose from. If a less formal atmosphere in the summer is more to your liking, then visit the Restaurant Piscina, overlooking the pool and gardens and where your fantastic breakfast is served.
