New Destinations

New Temptations

The Axel Hotels family continues to grow in order to offer new experiences in LGTBIQ+ friendly destinations.

We are crossing the Atlantic Ocean in August to open AxelBeach Miami, the first Axel hotel in the Unites States that will become the new reference for the LGBTIQ+ community in South Beach.

Axel Hotels will also open a new hotel in Spain in 2019: Axel Hotel San Sebastián.

To these destinations three new hotels can be added for 2020, one in Valencia (Spain), another on the island of Madeira (Portugal) with a different leisure proposal in a relaxing and nature setting and one more hotel in Bilbao (Spain) which will be the second Axel Hotels establishment in the Basque Country.

Miami, San Sebastián, Valencia, Madeira, and Bilbao are new destinations that support tolerance and diversity where you can enjoy the unique environment created by Axel´s heterofriendly philosophy.
