Abadía Retuerta LeDomaine, the exclusive abbey hotel and winery dating from 1146 in Spain’s Duero wine region, is 900 years old but it’s Europe’s first hotel to offer guests the hottest new technology of 2014: Google Glass.
“Google Glass is the next step in our complete transformation from an ancient and storied abbey to a sophisticated modern hotel offering the highest level of luxury and service in a sublime historic ambiance,” said Andres Araya, managing director of Abadía Retuerta LeDomaine. “With Google Glass, we are introducing our guests to an exciting new 21st-century experience in a 12th-century setting.”
LeDomaine’s guests can use Google Glass to do everything from take pictures (with a verbal command or just the blink of your eye) and make short videos to stargaze with a gps-based app and access information on the internet formatted for the device. Photos guests take with Google Glass are downloaded to a memory stick for them to take home.
The medieval abbey and estate of Abadía Retuerta LeDomaine is a grand travel experience of enduring history, stately architecture, world-class culinary experiences by one of Spain’s most celebrated chefs, acclaimed vineyards and 22 regal accommodations.
