La Mola is situated on the edge of the stunning St Llorenc de Munt national park, next to the world-famous Royal Golf Club and just 30 minutes from the centre of Barcelona. It’s the only venue of its kind in Spain designed specifically for the conference, training and meetings market, and has 26 meeting rooms, 186 bedrooms and a comprehensive spa with five hydrotherapy pools, a gym and beauty treatment rooms.

Within the grounds of the venue is also Mas Bonvilars, a beautiful historic manor house that can be hired for exclusive parties, cocktail receptions and weddings.

In line with the Principal Hayley commitment to the environment, La Mola has been created with sustainability at its core, and in keeping with the environment that surrounds it. The features include a wastewater treatment plant, solar panels and a freecooling system which reduces the need for air conditioning and heating systems.

“We have invested significantly into our first mainland European venues and are delighted to be open,” said Tony Troy, Principal Hayley chief executive officer. “The level of enquiries and bookings we have received are beyond our expectations and demonstrates the market need for dedicated European conference venues.

“As the first UK-owned hotel and conference brand to extend its offering outside the UK, our vision is to be become the best upscale conference, training and events lead group in Europe,” he continued, “and we have ambitious plans to extend to other countries in the near future.”
