The vinotherapy experience at El Santuario is much more than just grape-seed wraps and barrel baths. Set at the Abadía Retuerta LeDomaine resort in Spain’s Duero Valley, the 10,000-square-foot wellness facility offers a total wine immersion that begins with blind tastings of Abadía Retuerta’s very own vintages. Based on your palate, your personal “spa sommelier” determines exactly what you need, from cryotherapy facials to deep-tissue massages. Post-treatment, head to the outdoor swimming pool, which overlooks the gnarled vines of the Abadía Retuerta estate. 

  • El Santuario is part of LeDomaine, a 30-room Relais & Châteaux resort at the Abadía Retuerta wine estate. The subterranean spa is at the site of the estate’s former stables.
  • Facilities include four treatment rooms and a spa suite, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and a vineyard-view relaxation room, as well as eight butler-served guest rooms.
  • Standout treatments include the Cryo Jet Lag Reviver, which uses cold therapy to boost circulation and the immune system, and the 2-hour Le Grand Cru, a nourishing scrub, wrap, and massage.
  • Customized multiday wellness programs might include guided vineyard hikes and bike rides, personal fitness assessments and training (using the high-tech Tanita system from Japan), and healthy organic cuisine.
