San Sebastián, the Premium destination is growing!

Donostia's tourist attraction has helped to strengthen the range of products and services aimed at the most successful travellers

The city has first-class, top-quality sites and infrastructures. San Sebastian is changing, but it is still an elegant, avant-garde, distinctive and welcoming city that has not lost its essence.


One of the first things visitors look for in a destination. In the last few years, the city has consolidated a luxury hotel industry that few other destinations have.

In addition to the city's famous 5-star hotels, there are also 4-star superior and boutique hotels.

Arbaso Hotel

An urban boutique hotel, with spectacular views of the cathedral and a carefully designed local signature. It stands out for its personality, good workmanship and its gastronomic offer in the heart of the city centre.

Villa Favorita Hotel

Villa Favorita Hotel, one of the latest whims to arrive, an imposing façade, in the best location in the city, La Concha Bay, elegant rooms and a gastronomy of the highest level, with two Michelin stars, for a luxurious stay in the heart of the Bay.

Villa Magalean

Villa Magalean, a traditional villa restored with exquisite details in the heart of Hondarribia that transports us to another era. Luxury in a charming house, in the purest style of a stately home. Spa, restaurant and absolute tranquillity to transmit wellbeing and comfort.

Art in galleries and by local artists

One of the most enriching experiences for getting to know a destination in depth is to delve into its culture and the creations of local artists. Two art galleries with extensive experience in Basque culture and local art have joined San Sebastian Premium with the hope of offering visitors a deeper insight into Basque culture and artists.

Ekain Arte Lanak and Arteko

Experiences that move

The last three additions are linked to the city's DNA: gastronomy, the sea and sports.

Reale Arena

For lovers of football, La Real Sociedad, La Liga, and the Txuri Urdin colors, imagine a Premium guided tour in one of the most modern stadiums in the country, the home of the current Real Sociedad, the “Reale Arena”. A must visit for football lovers.


If you like to cook, what better opportunity than to do it at the MIMO school? With 400 square meters located in the Hotel María Cristina building, you will have one of their chefs all to yourself and they will adapt their classes to your tastes and preferences.

Brai Kantauri

And for enthusiasts of the sea, of sailing, of touching the foam with their hands, of watching a sunset with a picnic on board... choosing Brai Kantauri means sailing with all the comforts of a modern and accessible boat while they tell us stories and legends of the Cantabrian coast. A crew that takes care of even the smallest details to fully enjoy the Bay and beyond.
