Gran Hotel Bali

The Gran Hotel Bali is one of the most highly regarded four-star hotels in Benidorm. With a height of 186 meters, it is the highest hotel in Europe. The site consists of four buildings designed by architect Antonio Escario. The construction started in 1998 and was finished in 2002. It was the tallest building in Spain until 2006, surpassed by the Torre Espacio in Madrid. But still, the massive building can be seen popping out of the already amazing Benidorm skyline.

The Gran Hotel Bali has 776 rooms and 18 lifts, some of them are glass lifts built on the outside of the hotel. Different gardens and several swimming pools make it the perfect holiday destination. A lobby with exclusive shops and restaurants will make your stay even more pleasant.

The hotel is actually located in La Cala De Finestrat and not in Benidorm. With its distance of 300 meters from the Sea and with good visibility you can both see the big beaches of Benidorm, the beach of La Cala De Finestrat, and even further the island of Tabarca in front of Alicante. On the other side, you can clearly see the beautiful hinterland with the Puig Campana.

The new Mirador of Benidorm

The famous and much-photographed viewpoint of Benidorm has been completely renewed. The archaeological excavations are over and the city has given the square a facelift so that the selfie-making visitors can once again enjoy the fantastic view. Picture by Harry Fabel In June 2019, archaeological excavation work was started at the Mirador del Castillo, meaning that it was closed to visitors throughout the summer. A search was done, among other things, for the remains of the old "Castillo de Benidorm" that was destroyed 200 years ago by the British. On the well-known large rock that separates the two beaches stood a fortress that had the function of defending the city against the raids of Algerian and Berber pirates in the 14th, 15th, and 16th centuries. Later the Castle was abandoned and nowadays there are only a few remains of walls on the rocks of the lookout point, which is also known as the "Balcony of the Mediterranean Sea".
