Hacienda Zorita Wine Hotel & Spa sits along the Tormes River, in western Spain’s “Land of Bread and Wine,” a name that refers to the flourishing farms and world-class vineyards of this breathtaking region. The estate is also just a 20-minute drive from the heart of Salamanca, known as the “Golden City” and one of the finest Renaissance towns in Europe. So whether you’re taking day trips around the region, strolling along the banks of the river or simply kicking back on a sun lounger with a good book or a tasty cocktail, the laid-back vibes and gorgeous scenery of this inviting destination are sure to help you relax and recharge.
As a luxurious country estate, the property itself has quite a bit to offer, as well. More than living up to the region’s culinary heritage, the exquisite restaurant offers a menu of regional specialties featuring ingredients grown on site. You’ll also have a chance to experience the real highlight of this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner – its impressive wine cellar, where tastings show off the estate’s finest vintages. In fact, the wine culture here extends beyond just dining – visit the hotel’s luxurious spa and treat yourself to an exfoliating and age-defying vinotherapy treatment. Bathing yourself in wine? Now that’s luxury.
Standard rooms here are beautifully decorated in a laid-back, traditional style. Tiled floors and artisan wood furnishings add to the Mediterranean vibe, and you’ll have 260 square feet of space to stretch out in.
You’ll be dining on delicious Spanish and Mediterranean dishes, with ingredients sourced directly from the hotel’s own organic farm. Meals are served al fresco or in the communal dining room, which is styled after the traditional Dominican refectories. Elsewhere, Wine & Dine bar serves casual meals and cocktails.
You can ease into a blissful Spanish siesta at the hotel’s own Wine Spa, which offers natural vinotherapy – spa relaxation with the help of the local grapes – as well as soothing massage treatments. The spa also features a lovely bath area that’s perfect for cooling off on balmy days.
Salamanca is widely regarded as one of Europe’s most beautiful cities and was constructed almost entirely in locally mined sandstone, which gives off a golden glow as the sun goes down. The Old City was awarded UNESCO World Heritage status in 1988, and notable highlights include the old and new cathedrals, the highly original House of Shells and the university – one of the oldest in the world.
How to Get There
This is a stunningly beautiful property. The river passes underneath the hotel. It is very beautiful, quiet and quaint. BUT take a flashlight because the rooms have the equivalent of candlelight in the rooms. It was the darkest hotel I've ever been in. Also did the wine tasting, The fellow, all dressed up in top hat and tails was a bit too intense for me. He was very controlling and chastised one lady for drinking her wine too soon. Really?! There were only 2 types of wine and actually I didn't like either one, and didn't even finish the glass, and I drink cheap wine!
The property is very beautiful though!
If you have ever wanted to stay in a unique Monastery full of old character with amazing food and wine in a beautiful setting, this is the place!. Hacienda Zorita has beautiful grounds. The accommodation is comfortable and the ambience is very true in the old Monastery. The Suites and rooms in the Actual Monastery are comfortable and spacious with amazing views and the low lighting gives it's ambience. The Villas have their own privacy and are spacious and are in a very peaceful setting. The food and wine are well worth having as well as the very educational wine tour. I would recommend a stay here for food and wine lovers and those who particularly enjoy going back in time and history. Service was excellent.
Special thanks to Marta who ensured our stay was very comfortable and enjoyable.
Located in the Valverdon area this fantastic "Hacienda" offers an unique place to relax; enjoy good wines and good food. All wines are produced from its own local vineyards and fresh produces served in the restaurant are locally grown on its organic farm. We stayed at the Hacienda 3 nights and were very very impressed with the overall organization: from our check-in to our check-out. All the staff are very well trained, professional, courteous and attentive. Would recommend dinner in the restaurant, the wine tasting in the local bodega and treatments in the SPA which you basically reserve all to yourselves during the time you are in the SPA.
At breakfast the spread and variety is absolutely fab and you are also given a choice of a hot dish. This, as was for us - my wife's birthday -, is a place for a special occasion or, if you are travelling in the area, a must 1-2 night stopover.
Booked this through secret escapes and was not disappointed! Beautifully managed, rustic yet chic and the staff were amazing. Edi at reception was so helpful, Antonio made us feel very welcome and mixed a fab drink and Marina who made our Concordia meal even more fun. The villas are lovely, rustic, tiled floors, great beds and everything at hand! The food was amazing and we’ve joined the Hacienda Club so we will back! The only two downsides....the breakfast did always feel really busy and a bit of a bun fight if you timed it wrong as it was really busy and if you don’t have a car there is nothing else around so you would have to order a taxi. This is definitely a place you should visit.
From the moment you arrive you get a wonderful feeling. Just go and relax. Spotlessly clean,friendly staff. We had a bungalow which was fantastic.
Bed was so big 6 people could have slept in it. Wine shop as you arrive which is as cheap as chips and the wine is delicious.My only disappointment was the food. I thought it would be out of this world and sadly it wasn't. We wanted to do the gourmet wine tasting meal on our last night. One of my friends could not eat two of the courses and they were not prepared to provide her with an alternative. For a place of this standard that sadly let it down. Would i go back though. Without a doubt
