Abadía Retuerta Ledomaine Again Named Top Hotel in Spain & Portugal in Condé Nast Traveler's 2018 Readers' Choice Awards



For the second consecutive year, Conde Nast Traveler has named historic Abadía Retuerta LeDomaine - the restored 12th-century abbey hotel and winery located in Spain's Duero wine-growing region only two hours from Madrid - as the #1 hotel in Spain & Portugal in the iconic magazine's 31st annual Readers' Choice Awards.

"Being named the best hotel in Spain and Portugal for the second year in a row reflects our all-encompassing commitment to creating an unsurpassed experience for our guests," said CEO Enrique Valero. "From the beginning, we set the highest hospitality standards in every aspect of our destination estate, from an award-winning restoration to developing a leading winery, a Michelin-starred restaurant, a world-class spa and the most personalized guest pampering."

LeDomaine's score in the Readers' Choice Awards was an impressive 99.52, ranking it #1 on the list of the Top Hotels in Spain and Portugal - and #2 in Europe.

Opened on March 22, 2012, following a complete renovation that earned a distinguished Europa Nostra Award from the European Union for conserving cultural heritage, Abadía Retuerta LeDomaine is imbued with the charm and lore of a by-gone age, taking guests back in time while immersing them in the comforts and luxuries of today's most savvy hospitality. LeDomaine overwhelms the senses with its enduring history, stately architecture, majestic ambiance, 30 regal accommodations and world-class culinary experiences.

Santuario LeDomaine Wellness & Spa is a nurturing and innovative sanctuary of holistic healing and wellness featuring ultra-luxurious facilities and a ground-breaking Spa Sommelier concept where the guest's personalized treatment program is based on a blind tasting of Abadía Retuerta wines.

The Refectorio, the abbey's original dining hall with a vaulted Gothic ceiling and a 17th-century fresco, today is a One-Michelin-Star sanctuary of haute cuisine. Vinoteca serves dishes, tapas and small plates prepared with the high-quality ingredients of the region, enjoyed with the noble Abadía Retuerta wines. Seasonal dishes from salads to grilled meats are enjoyed al fresco in the spring and summer months in the Cloisters courtyard.

Among the amenities and activities: 24-hour butler service, mountain biking and horseback riding on the estate, tours of the winery, helicopter rides to view the ancient landscape from the air, and falconry displays.

The Abadía Retuerta estate is a two-hour drive or train ride from Madrid.
