SLS to open for the first time in Europe, with SLS Barcelona

The 490-room seafront property is scheduled to open in Barcelona’s fashionable @22 district in the second half of 2024 and will be SLS’s with its first destination in Europe.


Ennismore and ActivumSG Capital Management have signed a long-term management agreement that will bring SLS to Europe for the first time. The 31,326 sqm development is next to the beach and fronts the marina on the northeast side of Barcelona’s @22 district – the former industrial area revitalized under a major regeneration program. It is the last seafront plot in metropolitan Barcelona available for hotel development, with the main structural work scheduled to be completed in the coming months.

A modern lifestyle brand with a playful edge, SLS Barcelona will be home to distinctive food and beverage offerings, including roof-top dining and bars, as well as featuring three swimming pools, a 772 square-meter ballroom, a spa and beauty salon, and a well-being and fitness center. Each guest room will also have a balcony.

The location boasts easy access to the historic center of Barcelona by car or public transport. Under the regeneration program initiated in the 1990s, the @22 district has transformed itself into a hub for innovation, technology and start-ups. It has also become a fashionable place to live, resulting in a vibrant mix of shops, restaurants, and bars. Adjacent to the future SLS Barcelona, is the city’s major venue for outdoor music festivals and events, while the university’s engineering faculty, the CCIB convention center and the Museu Blau natural science museum are all a short walking distance away.
