This Spanish Hotel and Winery Now Offers Guests Google Glass

LeDomaine, a 900-year-old hotel and winery in Spain, is now the first European hotel to offer its guests Google Glass

The twelfth century and the twenty-first century collide with LeDomaine’s futuristic new amenity.

Abadía Retuerta LeDomaine Hotel and former medieval abbey in Spain’s Duero wine region can not only boast over 900 years of service to visitors of the Spanish countryside, with food overseen by famous Spanish chef Andoni Luis Aduriz, but now they are bringing their upscale accommodations into the twenty-first century. LeDomaine will become the first European hotel to offer its guests Google Glass. The luxury hotel has eight of these futuristic wearable computers.

“Google Glass is the next step in our complete transformation from an ancient and storied abbey to a sophisticated modern hotel offering the highest level of luxury and service in a sublime historic ambiance,” said Andres Araya, managing director of Abadía Retuerta LeDomaine, in a statement. “With Google Glass, we are introducing our guests to an exciting new twenty-first-century experience in a twelfth-century setting.”

Guests can use their device to learn more about the hotel and region, stargaze through Google Glass’ real-time astronomy app, and of course take lots of photos and video, which will be uploaded to a flash drive for guests to take home at the end of their stay.
