Abadía Retuerta LeDomaine, the newly restored, historic hotel in a 12th century abbey surrounded by vineyards in Spain’s Duero winegrowing region, will reopen March 2 with an upgraded spa, eight new guestrooms and its first Michelin Star.
Additionally, when it reopens the hotel will sport new guest experiences, such as mushroom foraging on the hotel’s medieval estate.
When the hotel reopens after its three-month closure, it will offer a starting room rate in 2015 of $415 as well as a variety of packages including spa, gourmet, romance and special guest experience programs that take advantage of the diversity of the local terrain. On the ‘Mycological Experience,’ guests hunt for wild mushrooms in local forests and dine on gourmet dishes prepared with the freshly picked fungi.
El Santuario, Abadía Retuerta LeDomaine’s new spa, will open its doors in July with a bespoke vinotherapy concept that includes a "spa sommelier." The 900-year-old abbey’s former stables are being transformed into the new spa. The stables will also house the eight new guestrooms, giving those rooms direct spa access.
In November 2014, the hotel’s Refectorio restaurant and Head Chef Pablo Montero received their first Michelin Star. Chef Montero’s menu at Refectorio matches dishes that highlight local ingredients with the wines of the Abadía Retuerta estate.
