Meanwhile, the pavilions blend nature with heated Japanese Onsen bathing, comfortable futons and special lighting for atmospheric evenings. While it may sound too transparent for some, the reviews here on booking.com are excellent and the rooms do have curtains. To make things even better, the hotel is close to a two-Michelin-star restaurant, Les Cols in Olot for the best local cuisine.
