If you thought a trip to Spain was just about Gothic cathedrals and incredible cuisine, think again; the VIVOOD Landscape Hotel in the Valley of Guadalest – just 50 minutes from Alicante — makes it possible to experience the country’s lush natural habitat away from the stress of modern life. The groundbreaking modular network of sustainable accommodation is leading the way in contemporary hospitality, created to mesh with its landscape through renewable resource use, responsible consumption, and environmental recovery. All the comforts of a luxury hotel – like an infinity pool, restaurant, and lounge bar – come at no cost to the surrounding environment. Any one of the 25 independent suites (some of which come equipped with an outdoor terrace and private hot tub) would provide a serene escape to “silence and tranquility.”

The groundbreaking modular network of sustainable accommodation is leading the way in contemporary hospitality.

Massive windows create almost panoramic views and make one feel as though in direct contact with the stunning surroundings, “conceived to be a picture of colourful greenery and light that floods into the neutral interior with its streamlined décor, white walls, grey ceramic tiled floor and signature wood.” Bathe beneath the tree-tops in the unique shower room with fixed floor-to-ceiling glazing and a continuous wooden platform or choose one of 4 rooms with a private pool carved strategically into nearby rock locations for a secluded soak with a scenic view. Each guest module is spaced at least 1500 square meters apart to foster this calming sense of privacy and isolation, while low-consumption ambient lighting guides guests at night with zero environmental impact. The first VIVOOD Landscape Hotel is an exciting beginning to what we hope will be a series of eco-escapes across the globe…but once you check-in you may never want to leave.
