Greet the New Year like royalty
Want to give 2013 a royal send-off? Celebrate the holiday at Parador Granada, located within the iconic Alhambra compound with unbelievable views of the Generalife Palace and the Sierra Nevada mountains.
Paradores is offering a special New Year's Eve package that includes comfortable lodgings, a scrumptious dinner in the hotel's restaurant and a breakfast buffet the following morning. Staying in this delightful 15th century convent will no doubt guarantee you a magnificent New Year's holiday in Spain.
A seaside New Year's Eve
Packages are also available at several seaside Paradores, including those in Nerja and El Saler, with full-scale cotillions to ring in the New Year.
Built on a cliff overlooking the blue Mediterranean near Málaga, Parador Nerja is located on a stunning stretch of coastline easily accessible by lift. The spacious, sunny rooms feature large terraces overlooking the sea and the Sierra Almijara mountains. For New Year's, this Parador is offering a one-night package with dinner, an open bar, a dance floor and a breakfast buffet that will surely make your holiday one to remember.
Further up the coast near Valencia is Parador El Saler, set between a grand lagoon and the sea, and custom designed to make your stay a relaxing one. Whether you want to have a go at its 18-hole golf course or unwind at its world-class spa, this modern glass building caters to guests' comfort, and provides a great base from which to visit the nearby La Albufera nature reserve.
For the end of the year, El Saler offers a two-night package that begins on 30 December with dinner included, and is followed on the 31 with a breakfast buffet, a special New Year's Eve dinner menu, live orchestra music and an open bar.
Swing into 2014
Sportier guests might prefer to spend the last few days of 2013 practising their swing at Parador Málaga Golf and its excellent 18-hole golf course. Beginners can attend the Parador's golf school, while more experienced guests can head directly onto the three putting greens and two approach greens.
Parador Málaga Golf
The Parador, which also features seaside views, is offering a one-night package with New Year's Eve dinner, an open bar, a live orchestra and a babysitting service for those accompanied by younger children. On New Year's Day, enjoy brunch and bask in Málaga's warm wintertime weather.
