“There are moments in my life that I just sit and have to take in what heaven has given to me and my family, there are so many things that one could only ever dreamed would happen in ones life…….Heaven has made those dreams a reality”
No week or day is ever the same in my life, and some weeks just stand out more than others ….this week was one of those weeks !
My week started out with a royal invitation to the trooping of the colour at St James palace, where I took along my friend Caroline, it’s always hard to put into words how special my time with members of the royal family really is, so I will let this beautiful picture speak those words for me.
Always a pleasure being in Camilla`s company, such a genuine warm and true lady, this is one of many very special pictures I have with Camilla and thought I would share with you all.
So after a world wind visit to the palace It was time to hop on a plane to Barcelona for the launch of Heaven at Celebrity Chef Jordi Cruz`s luxury Hotel spa and restaurant www.abacbarcelona.com , and to wow the Spanish press!
I have eaten and stayed at some of the best hotels in the world, but this one takes some beating, the food , the service the ambiance all adds to make this one of the best , if not the best in the world, but don’t just take my word for it, check it out here: http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_Review-g187497-d1077341-Reviews-ABaC_Barcelona-Barcelona_Catalonia.html
Jordi Cruz is an absolute gentleman and a perfectionist who is as passionate about his food as he is about his beautiful hotel, which you can rest assure is a place where you can brush shoulders with celebs from all walks of life, and you will be treated like one too.
This Hotel is award-winning Michelin star standard, along with the restaurant and spa the staff are too, if ever you wish to experience a sensation like no other, then this is the place to stay, I stayed in a very special part of the hotel where you have to walk through the kitchen to a private lift to your room , and on route are able to see the master-chef at work!
I ordered room service (I was pekish!) and Jordi personally prepared and cooked my soup, which was out of this world…heaven on the palate , filled with exotic mushrooms and little balls of parmesan that exploded with flavour in your mouth and you could feel it right to your toes, (my mouth is watering just writing this and recalling the memory!) and it looked like a work of art, almost a shame to eat and disturb the masterpiece before me.
I was having such a wonderful time it was easy to forget why I was actually here, so with the press launch imminent it was time to showcase to the ABaC Hotel and Spa and invited press why Heaven will fit beautifully within their Spa as well as how proud I am to have Heaven at this beautiful location, and to have my very special long time friend at my side made it even more special.
The Spanish press treated me so well and loved Heaven, each gushing over every product handed to them, and they adored the new packaging.
It didn’t take long for the Spanish press to report the event!
I am still floating on air after my royal visit, and since my stay at the ABaC hotel I am filled with pride that Heaven is now at their spa, the whole trip was an absolute dream, Jordi Cruz has cherry picked the best for his stunning hotel, and to have him choose Heaven is an honour.
Thank you Jordi and too Heavens Spanish Distributor Jaquie Fowler for arranging the whole event and for introducing Heaven to the ABaC hotel
