I am in southern Spain on my way to the Hotel Spa Las Orquideas. I drive over yellow-green hills, past high mountains, azure lakes and idyllic white villages. The setting sun colours the sky purple and makes the view even more romantic. This is how Monika must have felt, I think. When she first came here in 2002, she spontaneously fell in love with the view and decided that she wanted to build her hotel here. Monika and her husband turn 70 in 2018 and hand over the daily tasks to Alfonso, a family friend. But she still wanted to show me the hotel, her great love, herself.
When I enter the hotel, I am amazed: marble floors, high white walls and windows with wooden shutters. Monika guides me around enthusiastically. She travelled far and wide looking for the most beautiful things. Every room brings a new surprise. Classic furniture is interspersed with artistic pieces. I see a bath on silver legs and beds with a playful metal frame. "These beds were specially designed for the hotel", says Monika proudly. The rugs and bedspreads with colourful prints make it complete. "This rug comes from Morocco and I went to get it myself." In the dining room, a life-size, modern painting catches my eye. "Painted by a team of young German artists, I have fallen in love with it to this day", Monika beams, and I can fully understand why she is so fond of this place.
