Luxury lifestyle brand Nobu Hospitality has announced plans to expand their portfolio to Barcelona with a brand new Nobu Hotel and Restaurant. 

Set to open by the end of 2018, the hotel will be part of a multi-million Euro refurbishment of Gran Hotel Torre Catalunya.

Selenta Group, a Spanish real estate and hotel group, said they are excited to work with Nobu which was established and founded by internationally renowned Japanese Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, actor Robert De Niro, and producer Meir Teper. 

"We are extremely proud to be partnering with the Spanish company Selenta Group on such an exciting project, and we look forward to working with the Catalan community,” said Trevor Horwell, Chief Executive Nobu Hospitality in a press release. 

The hotel will offer 250 rooms and suites along with its meeting rooms, event spaces and signature Nobu restaurant, which will sit atop the 23-floor building with 360-degree views of the Catalan capital, complementing Nobu's famous restaurant offering with a high-rise dining experience. 

World renowned architecture firm Rockwell will blend luxury hotel with energized public spaces to create an iconic Barcelona setting.

It will be located near the historic center of Barcelona and close to the business areas of the city.

Earlier this year, Nobu opened its first European hotels in London in the city’s artistic quarter and Ibiza, Spain on the shores of Talamanca Bay.

Nobu also has properties within Caesars Palace Las Vegas, Manila, Philippines; Miami Beach, Florida; and Malibu, California. 

The company also plans to build properties in Palo Alto, Marbella, Riyadh, Los Cabos, Chicago, Toronto, and Bahrain.
