Uniting the luxury spa experience with the tastes and smells of fine wine, El Santuario is a new generation in spa breaks.

Within the 12th century abbey hotel and winery of Abadia Retuerta LeDomaine, El Santuario makes great use of its setting to provide a relaxing spa break with a difference. Across 10,000 square feet, the spa pampers its guests with treatment rooms, a Spa Suite, an indoor and outdoor heated pool, and ladies and men’s wellness areas with a sauna, steam baths, showers, hydrotherapy pool, relaxation room and changing areas in each. Classes include Pilates, personal training sessions, yoga, meditation and Qi Gong.

While all of this may sound like spa tradition, El Santuario designs a spa experience for each guest influenced by their palette and aroma preferences of oils and wines. With unique Spa Sommeliers, guests are guided throughout their stay, given effective treatments to enhance wellness and wellbeing. It’s essentially a vinotherapy spa.

Alongside the experience is a dining menu that’s nutritious and healthy as well as absolutely delicious, created by Michelin-Star chef, Pablo Montero, and his mentor, Andoni Luis Aduriz. Guests can also be assured that El Santuario is sustainable and energy efficient. Efforts to reduce its carbon footprint include solar panels, groundwater pumps, geothermal storage systems and a water-treatment plant to recycle water.

El Santuario is certainly raising the standard for unique spa experiences, finding a new, innovative way to refresh and rejuvenate its guests through the power of wine.
