The Spanish city famous for its paella, oranges, Fallas festival and stunning space-age City of Arts and Sciences complex will soon be welcoming visitors to a ‘new’ hotel – the TRYP Valencia Vora Fira.
Valencia’s new TRYP by Wyndham Vora Fira joins the TRYP brand next month and its location next to the city’s trade fair centre (and a 10 minute drive from the airport) makes it easy for visitors to explore the city on a short break.
Meliá Hotels International, who just signed the new hotel deal with TRYP, are Spain’s largest hotel company and one of the top resort brands in Europe, with flagship properties in the most stylish capitals in the world, including London. Meliá also run an extremely successful timeshare division, Club Meliá, one of the best-known names in the industry.
Following the deal, the 127-room Valencia hotel will come under the international TRYP by Wyndham brand. Guests staying at the hotel can get to Valencia city centre thanks to good public transport links, with Benimàmet metro station just minutes away.
Valencia is Spain’s third largest city, less busy than Madrid, more beachy than Barcelona. Its authentic mix of old town, shopping, sailing and pretty coastline contrasts beautifully with all of its museums, theatres and banks, making it an unbeatable destination for timeshare owners who fancy a blend of beach, history, culture, and good food.
Its ultra-modern City of Arts and Sciences is an absolute must-visit – few giant modern architectural spaces in Europe can rival it, and it made headlines all over the world when it first opened.
There’s so much to do in this vibrant Spanish city. From the treasury of artworks by Velasquez, El Greco and Goya on show at the Museu de Belles Arts, to one of its best-loved historical landmarks, Valencia Cathedral, Valencia is a feast for the eyes and food for the soul. Spain’s most famous dish, paella, originated here, while the sweet, freshly squeezed orange juice served in the city’s cafes goes perfectly with a morning pastry. It’s no coincidence that Valencia is located on Spain’s famous “Orange Blossom Coast”, and like Seville, Valencia is a city famous for its citrus fruits.
If you’ve never been to Valencia, you can catch the 2016 Fallas next March. An explosion of lights, fireworks, flowers, music, bonfires, huge 20-ft high puppets and costumes, the “fallas” (fires) take place over a number of days, in one big celebration of the end of winter and start of spring. The Fallas have to be seen to be believed, so book soon for next year’s celebrations!
