Welcome to

Hotel & Spa Etxegana, The Originals Relais (Relais du Silence)

Meet Luis and enjoy his Spa hotel near Vitoria-Gasteiz

A charming residence. Exceptional surroundings. Welcome to Luis & Begoña’s hotel.

“Offering the very best service to our guests and constantly finding ways to improve, to make their experience as wonderful as it can be.”

Luis is fiercely passionate. Not only about his homeland, the Basque Country, but also about human interaction. “I am lucky enough to live in an incredible place. It is a very proud land which is full of tradition, and full of nature. One day I told myself I was going to make the most of these unparalleled surroundings, and that it would be nice to be able to share them with others”. His dream was to build a hotel. Hotel & Spa Etxegana, The Originals Relaisis a magnificent Basque-style stone and wood building, which fits perfectly into the wild and natural countryside of Zeanuri, a village a few kilometres away from Bilbao and Vitoria-Gasteiz in northern Spain. Inside is a medley of different styles, where even the smallest of details have been designed to create a unique and harmonious atmosphere which invites guests on a journey of discovery. “We are always looking at ways to improve, so that we can provide guests with the ultimate satisfaction”. They are, however, already pretty well-looked-after at this 3-star hotel, what with its 18 magnificent rooms, a delicious restaurant, spa, and the enchanting surroundings of the Basque Country.

DINING

Hotel & Spa Etxegana, The Originals Relais

Imagine sitting on the terrace, looking out over the countryside and the lush green hills of the Basque Country. It’s difficult to imagine a better way to start a wonderful day, especially when both sweet and savoury local dishes await you on the buffet! Should the weather turn, the views are just as fabulous from the dining room. It even features a touch of the exotic, with its carved Balinese door and the mashrabiyas' lacy woodwork delicately surrounding the windows. The flavours on the plate, however, are more local. And here, it’s all about indulgence!

ONEKO

In Basque, this means ‘good’. Very good, even, when it comes to this restaurant, which offers a bistro menu and à la carte dishes made with fresh, local and seasonal ingredients, including cheeses, meat, fish caught in the Cantabrian Sea and very high-quality local wines with appellation d’origine certification. Its signature dishes include slow-cooked lamb served with a sweet potato parmentier and a bacon mille-feuille.

EXPERIENCES

Hotel & Spa Etxegana, The Originals Relais

Ongi Etorri Euskal Herrira...or, as we say here, welcome to the Basque Country! This bold, distinctive land has a wealth of treasures to explore, with its nature, culture and cuisine. And the Hotel & Spa Etxegana, The Originals Relais provides the perfect window. 

SPA

Open the delicately hand-carved wooden doors onto the Borobudur spa (from the name of an ancient Buddhist temple on the island of Java). There, overlooking the surrounding natural countryside, you’ll have the chance to enjoy a small swimming pool complete with waterfall, as well as a Jacuzzi, steam room, one traditional sauna, and a Scottish Shower (not for the faint-hearted!). There is a charge to use it, with a private session lasting one hour. Don’t forget your swimsuits, flip-flops and swimming caps.

THINGS TO DO

Hikes through the hundred-year-old Otzarreta forest, and various trips to the Gorbeia nature reserve for birdwatching, the autumn deer rut, and mushroom-picking, with several different varieties growing in the area. Your host can also organise horse riding, water sports and golf excursions for you.

THINGS TO SEE NEARBY

The Spanish Basque Country and its 3 capital cities offer tourists everything they could wish for in a holiday, and is packed with experiences and sensations that will leave them itching to come back. Bilbao, with its Euskalduna Conference Centre and Concert Hall and its unmissable Guggenheim museum, twinkling in the sunshine like a disco ball under the spotlights; San Sebastián and its old town, the Bay of La Concha, pintxos (local tapas) and incredible architecture such as the Basilica of Santa María del Coro and the San Vicente church; Pamplona, with the famous festival of San Fermín which takes place in July (with the running of the bulls through the streets, among other things) and its historical centre, mini zoo and many green spaces, as well as the Arga River Park with over 800,000 m2 of tree-filled grounds. Not to mention Hondarribia, up on the French border, a festive and brightly-coloured little gem with an ancient fortress sitting high up above the village, which can only be reached by sweating up a maze of steep little lanes.

What our customers say

"All around amazing, relaxing, and great experience"

The hotel is beautiful. Every single detail is addressed with exquisite attention. The spa is a true treat, the rooms are comfortable and very well done and the amenities are high caliber. And the restaurant is dangerous, because the food is SOO GOOD. What truly impressed us though was the service. The personnel running the restaurant cared about our comfort and happiness more so than any hotel I've ever visited. We already miss it and want to go back!
