The Castilla Termal Monastery of Valbuena: A Luxurious Destination Wedding Venue

The Castilla Termal Monasterio de Valbuena is is an incredible mix of classic architecture and a more modern, innovative style. Located in the rolling hills of the Ribera del Duero in Northern Spain – and only two and a half hours from Madrid – the exclusive reputation of this 5* hotel has certainly been earned. A converted 12th century Cistercian monastery, the Castilla Termal is alive with history and culture, with views of the surrounding countryside so picturesque they appear to have been lifted directly from an art gallery. Years of restoration have maintained the grand stature of the architecture, but have also permitted the development of an elegant events venue, which can proudly boast of 79 spacious guest rooms, and a 350-guest capacity. As such, it is ideal for a Destination Wedding!

However, the Castilla Termal is more than a luxury hotel; it is the site of a nationally-renowned spa complex which is over 2,000 square metres in size, with 16 luxurious treatment rooms, and several thermal pools. There is exclusive use for guests at the hotel, and we at Zankyou cannot think of a better feature for a wedding venue than a place reserved for relaxation! The list of services does not end with the spa however – the Castilla Termal has on-site restaurants, a winery, a gym, and 4.5 hectares of free land to make you feel as if you really were one with nature.

Perhaps the feature with the most gravitas, however, is the inclusive bridal package offered by the team of professional wedding planners at the Castilla Termal. If you choose to have your wedding here, the only thing you need worry yourself about is your wedding dress – everything else, and we mean everything, is taken care of by the staff. There is even an on-site photographer, whose role with the organisation is to provide for couples choosing to marry or renew their vows here. As a result, there is plenty of time to enjoy the grounds and the spa, knowing that every minute detail is being taken care of.

The Castilla Termal is however more than a monastery and spa combination (though we know that’s enough!). No, what is most special about the venue is the ambience that is created through the culmination of its services and almost palatial appearance – one of absolute quality and grandeur, a refined sense of luxury and bliss. The scintillating views are enough to make you and your guests feel completely awestruck at all times, but the views of the vast open countryside inspire a feeling of freedom and unification with nature. Indeed, the venue often feels quite magical – its old foundations and majestic architecture, with its mix of modern services, mean that the Castilla Termal is a veritable wish-granting factory.

Due to the relative magnificence of the venue, the associated costs should not come as any surprise, but are not at all exorbitant when you consider what you get in return. For example, for a tailored banquet for your reception, you can expect to pay between €130 and €450 – but you can be sure that this will be the best food you’ve eaten in your life! And with all parts of the wedding organised on your behalf by the experts, this venue is absolutely worth the money.

By hosting your wedding with the Castilla Termal Monasterio de Valbuena, it is guaranteed that you will have the experience of a lifetime, and a wedding that they will never be able to forget! Cultured, and in a beautiful secluded location, the Castilla Termal is highly endorsed by Zankyou. If you’re looking for the perfect venue for your Destination Wedding in Spain, then look no further!
