Stay Here: Marqués de Riscal, Spain

November 21, 2013 by

Escape in Spain on a culinary, arts, wine and adventure vacation of a lifetime. Located in northern Spain, in the Rioja wine production region of the Basque Country, is Hotel Marqués de Riscal. This ultra modern resort was opened in 2006. It has since won numerous awards and been a highly sought after destination.

It was designed by Frank Gehrty, whose famous slanted walls, high ceilings, eclectic colors and design can be found all over Spain and Portugal. The Hotel Marqués de Riscal is arguably one of his masterpieces. Each of the 43 rooms here have endless views of centuries old vineyards and rolling hills paired with innovative design and intimate comfort.

Marqués doesn’t just welcome you with it’s exotic design and fancy decor; it offers so much more. The town of Elciego is in the heart of the Rioja wine region where wineries offer tours daily. Explore a vineyard by horseback, perhaps?

Within the hotel itself you’ll find rooftop bar and book room, a swanky lounge, a chic bistro and a 5 star restaurant.

You may also find yourself in the Spa Vinothérapie, a unique spa that rejuvenates your body with the ancient grapes. Wrap yourself in a Merlot, honey and wine wrap or an antioxidant facial.
