Seaside Grand Hotel Residencia 

Serene and swish beach house-style

Backed by mountains and dunes, this luxury hotel is equal parts French elegance and laidback Californian style.

Outside in ancient palm groves, white-washed villas are surrounded by lanterns and a glinting saltwater pool; inside, it’s a wonderland of canary yellow and grey tones with a Michelin-star chef helmed restaurant and elegant piano bar. French designed rooms are pretty-as-a-picture and wellness comes courtesy of a Thalasso pool, underwater spinning bike and spa treatments.

Elsewhere, a pool bar serves up tapas and the piano bar is a buzzy spot for cocktails and music. Guests can also head to the hotel's sister property Seaside Palm Beach for tapas at La Bodega and Mediterranean dishes at Esencia.
