Aire de Bardenas is a hotel that acts as a retreat from distraction.

In Spain, there’s a place without sea or mountains and it’s a haven for architecture, design and silence. In the province of Navarra, a land known for its good wine and food we can find Aire de Bardenas. It’s a hotel which is revolutionizing the concept and experience of isolation from the world. Located in the countryside, the hotel is set as if it were a lunar colony. Each room is a cube in which one wall is glassed to experience the feeling of emptiness seeing the horizon at dawn and dusk. The hotel has its own garden, where they grow vegetables for the restaurant’s menu. Here there aren’t any monuments, buildings to visit, museums, nor restaurants or shops. Aire de Bardenas reflects a growing need for real concentration,  lack of distraction, the need to flee multitasking.
