Even in modern cities like Prague, Harford and Paris, Frank Gehry’s designs manage to stand out. But put one in the foothills overlooking a medieval village of 1000 people, and it’s downright otherworldly.

The titanium exterior is the hotel’s most eye catching feature but inside, god is in the details. Every element of the rooms and suites is designer made, and the curved wood walls, bright red leather furniture and marble bathrooms would make it look right at home in the pages of a designer magazine. Other perks include the hotel’s award-winning Spa Vinothérapie Caudalie Marqués de Riscal, which draws from the therapeutic properties of the grapes and vines from the surrounding vineyards and just like the hotel which houses it, it’s an experience you’ll find nowhere else.

For the gourmet’s the hotel’s Marques de Riscal restaurant, is a one Michelin Star eat that combines innovative cuisine with a vast – and excellent – selection of wine from the hotel’s cellars. Considering the fact that la Rioja is one of Spain’s best wine producers, you’re in for a treat.
