Marqués de Riscal, Spain

The Marqués de Riscal gives its customers the best of both worlds, it’s weird from the outside and wonderful on the inside.

The exterior of the hotel is adorned with waves of red, gold and silver titanium giving the impression of giant strips of ribbon wrapped around a hotel shaped present. And what a gift it is! The inside of this hotel is a haven of five star luxury.

Situated in Spain’s world-famous Rioja wine region, renowned architect, Frank O. Gehry, has created a truly magnificent hotel that’s a must for any wine-lover. With its converted wine cellar banquet area, unique “wine therapy” massages and of course, a superior selection of wines at the hotel’s bar and restaurant, it’s no surprise that the hotel’s surroundings are known as the “City of Wine”.
