Eco-friendly style with forest views near the coastal chic of San Sebastián
Rising above the treetops of the Miramón Forest is Arima Hotel, a boutique retreat in the Basque Country in total harmony with its surroundings. Set in a stunning building that seems to float amidst the leafy landscape, it champions a ‘live green, love green’ philosophy that puts eco credentials at its core – from clean energy systems to a menu inspired by locally-grown ingredients.
Whether you’re lounging by the rooftop pool in the summer months or trying the vegan tasting-menu in the Misura restaurant, Arima Hotel will bring you closer to nature. Floor-to-ceiling windows let in dappled, natural light. Each room boasts a rain shower and unique prints of flowers and wildlife on its walls. And sleek, contemporary furniture works seamlessly with a neutral colour palette of wood, stone and iron.Read more[SPLIT]Read less
