Hotel Viura in Villabuena de Alava, Basque Spain

June 26, 2010 by

Hotel Viura is a 33-room, 4-star, modern luxury boutique hotel in Villabuena de Álava, in the Basque Region of Northern Spain. Situated in Villabuena de Álava in the Rioja Alavesa, Viura is perfect as a base for discovering La Rioja. Only 20 minutes away from Logroño and from Haro and 10 minutes from such emblematic wine cellars as Ysios and Marqués de Riscal.

Architecturally, the hotel is stark in its external appearance, especially when compared to the more traditional architecture of the surrounding Spanish villages. Composed of whimsically superimposed cubes, that seem to surge forcefully from the centre of the earth; punctuated by French windows that flood the rooms with views of the relaxing scenery, it provides a lesson in modern design and juxtaposition.

Accommodations at Hotel Viura come in Room and Suite types, with 13 Viura Rooms, 13 Deluxe Room and 7 suites, decorated in a contemporary style, perfectly thought out to create comfortable areas that provide complete peace and relaxation, through the use of innovative decorative and technological elements.

Viura Rooms are spacious rooms with carefully chosen furnishings and design details. The free in-room private bar offers free bottles of water, soft drinks and a small selection of wines chosen by the hotel’s sommelier – well, you are in the Rioja region, after all.

Deluxe Rooms are larger rooms offering views of the village and come in one or twin bed options. Deluxe Rooms have the same in-room bar facilities as Viura Rooms.

The Suites at Hotel Viura are large and ultra-luxurious, with spacious bathrooms that offer both a bath / soak tub and shower. As well as the exquisite decor, Suites feature an entertainment system including Blue Ray DVD player, a Nespresso coffee machine and an in-room bar.

The Restaurant at Hotel Viura is a special place for the delight of the senses. Gastronomy has pride of place, in wonderfully elegant surroundings, perfect for an intimate dinner or for weddings and other events. Sample menus a la carte, based on Riojan and Basque cuisine, but with creative touches, and made from fresh, natural products. A special mention has to be made for the excellent Wine Lists, put together and supervised by the hotel’s renowned sommelier.

For meetings and events, Hotel Viura offers spacious, modern multi-purpose areas, all with exterior facing windows and natural light. With the hotel’s perfect location, Viura is a popular venue for weddings, celebrations, receptions and corporate functions.

Located in a picture postcard spanish village, in the Rioja region famous for its vineyards, Hotel Viura offers a contrast of modern urbanism for visitors to the area. With its chic and elegant rooms, to its sumptuous wines and cuisine, it is the perfect place to kick back and take in all that this beautiful area of Northern Spain has to offer – and is definitely a must-stay experience for the Chic Traveler.
