The Experience

Hotel Marques de Riscal

Welcome to the landmark Hotel Marqués De Riscal. Designed by renowned architect Frank O. Gehry, our hotel is his second masterpiece in Spain after driving Bilbao’s urban revival with the Guggenheim Museum.  

Located in the heart of the Rioja wine region, this is the perfect place for a relaxing break or small meeting. 43 modern, comfortable suites feature a modern, comfortable atmosphere and unique design by Frank O. Gehry. All are equipped with luxuries such as LCD TV, CD player, coffee/tea maker, marble bathrooms and high speed Internet access (ADSL and wireless). Enjoy the views of the vineyards and thetown of Elciego, while sitting in the bay windows.

The main restaurant is set to become one of Spain’s leading centers for fine gastronomy, combining traditional Rioja cuisine with modern influences by the well-known Echaurren Restaurant (1 Michelin star). Furthermore, we offer a wine bar in a more informal setting, a rooftop bar and lounge with panoramic views and open fireplace, a wine tasting corner, cooking school, and an ancient wine cellar, which was converted to a banqueting space.

The Caudalie Vinothérapie® Spa is the backbone of the leisure facilities, offering an indoor swimming pool, hammam, fitness, and a wide variety of massages and treatments featuring “wine therapy.” All products are made using the best that grapes have to offer, designed exclusively for Caudalie Vinothérapie.

Guests also have access to the Marqués de Riscal vineyards, the Wine Museum & Shop, and the state-of-the-art process and elaboration center.

Additional leisure activities in the area include two golf courses within 35 kilometers, tours of the surrounding nature and hills by foot, bike, or horse, and “Ruta de Vino,” an established tour which explores the Rioja wine region by car. If visiting during the winter months, the Valdezcarray ski resort is only 50 kilometers away.

Architecture buffs are in for a treat at Hotel Marqués de Riscal. This mesmerizing hotel was designed by Frank O. Gehry and is his second masterpiece in the country, after the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. Here in the “City of Wine,” 43 comfortably contemporary guestrooms and suites make for an intimate getaway with full view of the vineyards of the Rioja wine region. As expected, the food and wine are exquisite, as prepared at the Marqués de Riscal Restaurant and Bistró 1860. Even the on-site Spa Vinothérapie® Caudalie focuses its exclusive treatments around grape extracts that revitalize.
