Spain gets 4-star vegan hotel with sustainability practices

Published on : Monday, April 1, 2019

Spain gets its luxury and eco-friendly vegan hotel which might be worth the experience.

 

Located in the Catalonia city of Lleida, Casa Albets is an all-vegan hotel surrounded by nature, offering high-quality vegan meals, massages and even yoga classes.

 

 

Guests can also rent bikes, and seeing as Casa Albets sits on almost 494 acres of land, it might be a good idea to get one.

 

 

The hotel building is a converted 11th century mansion run by entrepreneur and Director Megan Albets, whose family has owned the building since it was built, and her partner Joel Lleida, who has been in the hotel industry for a decade and manages the restaurant. “We came to live in this house in 2015. This was Megan’s family house and it was abandoned back then.

 

 

“Short after that we felt this house should come to life again and began thinking about different projects.” The once-abandoned building was renovated and converted into a hotel in an environmentally-friendly manner.

 

 

For one, most of the hotel’s furniture, which was made with wood from the Albets estate, is handmade. Additionally, the linen and mattresses are all handmade with eco-friendly, vegan materials. Casa Albets is heated with a biomass boiler using locally-sourced wood pellets, which is a renewable energy source. However, the hotel still plans to switch to solar panels.

 

 

Casa Albets’ fine-dining restaurant, which offers three-course meals, also prepares its dishes with the environment in mind as they are made with locally-sourced food prepared by vegan chef Toni Rodriguez.

 

 

Even the sewer system is eco-friendly. “Casa Albets has a system that separates solid and liquid waste,” the hotel’s website states.

 

 

Casa Albets, which launched in October 2017, currently has seven rooms, but Llurda says they are planning to add two more rooms that will be ready by July. The hotel tells us that guests, who mainly come from the Barcelona area, are mostly neither vegan nor vegetarian.

 

 

Casa Albets has also generously donated some of its land to an animal sanctuary.
