Alohas Travels to Seville
I was lucky enough to have been invited by the hospitable team at Alohas to visit Seville to see their new Spring/Summer 2019 collection. Travelling along with 5 other major influencers we got to experience Seville, the capital of southern Spain’s Andalusia region. Seville is one of Spain’s most beautiful cities. Sensual, mysterious and flamboyant, it’s a place where the traditions of the bullfight and flamenco are fiercely honoured.
A special thank you to Ale, Laura and the team at Alohas for making this all happen!
Stay: Hotel Amadeus
Address: Calle Farnesio, 6, 41004 Sevilla, Spain
This charming little hotel is located in the heart of Seville in the district of Santa Cruz next to the Alcazar, Giralda and the Catedral. This old mansion style home of the XVIII century has been adapted into a hotel which pays tribute to Sevillan style as much as possible. As soon as I checked in I felt at home in the picturesque rooms!
Stay: Hacienda de Oran
Address: A-8029, Km 7, 41710 Utrera, Sevilla, Spain
Located in Utrera, 20 minutes away from Seville's City centre is where we got to relax and enjoy some 'me time' between all the festivities.
This historic 17th-century Hacienda is surrounded by beautiful florals, fountains, Andalusian patios and welcoming spaces. This was the first time I got to experience living in the charming little countryside of Seville and I absolutely loved it. Thank you to the beautiful staff for the breakfast spreads and dinners here! I’ll miss you all!
Exploring the Centre of Seville
Going Ham on Jamón
There is seriously something magical about Spanish ham! It’s one of those foods that just keeps tasting better the more you eat it. The ham carries an astonishing amount of flavour and history. No trip to Seville is complete without at least one tasting of top-tier jamón ibérico de bellota.

AIRE spaces are temples dedicated to the relaxation of body and mind in which time does not exist. Inspired by the tradition of baths from ancient Roman, Greek and Ottoman civilizations, the AIRE Experience always takes place in restored historical buildings in the centre of cities. Perfect way to end the trip before heading back to Sydney!
