Located near the Spanish city of Alicante sits a unique hotel that was created with the aim of using modular architecture to produce a sustainable resort that blends seamlessly into its stunning rural settings.
Designed by architect Daniel Mayo and a team of fellow architects and designers, the VIVOOD features 25 independent suites and 10 villas that seek to promote tranquillity, relaxation and a connection with nature.
The hotel's architecture prioritises proximity to nature while conserving the existing ecosystem of the hillside. For this reason, the units are raised above the ground on slender columns that minimise disruption to the existing vegetation.
The 25 suites have been naturally integrated into the environment and elevated about three meters off the ground. Each one comes with magnificent views of the Guadalest Valley and have been spread out along several nature paths on the side of a mountain to provide a sense of isolation. Some of the suites also come with a private heated hot tub and sun terrace.
The 10 villas are designed to make you feel just at home. Located in a more secluded location where you can enjoy a quiet and unforgettable stay in a natural paradise. Each villa has been designed to create an atmosphere of intimacy, calm and relaxation. Each of the villas also comes with a stunning outdoor heated infinity pool and private deck.
An infinity pool and private outdoor hot tubs provide panoramic views of the valley. The pools are also ingeniously lined in black so that they reflect their surroundings, like mirrors.
Of all Spain's mainland provincial capitals, Alicante is the most influenced by tourism, thanks to the nearby airport and resorts. Nevertheless, it is a dynamic, attractive Spanish city with a castle, old quarter and long waterfront.
The nearest airport to the hotel is the Valencia Airport which is located around a 2-hour drive away on the outskirts of the southern Spanish city, Valencia. There are regular connections from there to over 20 European cities including Madrid, Amsterdam and London.
