Escape the city and rest your head in environmentally friendly luxury at ViVood’s Landscape Hotel in Guadalest, Spain. Nestled in a scenic valley about an hour’s drive from the city of Alicante, this adults-only hotel promises peace and quiet, and comprises 25 prefab modular dwellings, each boasting spectacular views and powered by renewable energy. Architect Daniel Mayo Pardo—the same man behind the tiny solar-powered ViVood home—designed the unique eco-suites.
The ViVood Landscape Hotel is designed to put visitors in direct contact with nature, while maintaining a minimal environmental footprint. Clad in wood and black-painted viroc, the prefab buildings are elevated off the ground to avoid altering the original topography and are faced with full-height windows framing gorgeous views of the lush mountains. All the structures were built with local manpower and materials were sourced as locally as possible.
The hotel strives to use eco-friendly products and low-energy fixtures to minimize their carbon footprint. The kitchen and restaurant are topped by solar panels and follow a “slow food” philosophy; the cooks use as much produce from the onsite garden as possible. Recycling is implemented in all areas onsite. In addition to the restaurant and individual suites, the Landscape Hotel offers a lounge bar and expansive infinity pool that looks out over marvelous valley views.
