VIVOOD is a pioneering network of sustainable getaway destinations offering travelers an opportunity to experience the landscape in a different way.

VIVOOD is the brainchild of the young entrepreneurial architect Daniel Mayo.
In the wake of his successful opening, in 2009, of VivoArquitectura, an architectural studio specializing in beautifully designed small-scale projects, and deeply committed to environmental conservation, Daniel embarked on a scientific study of architectural sustainability.

“VIVOOD Eco-Friendly Accommodation” is the result of that investigation. These folding units, with their unique patented design, have been brought to life in the form of “landscape hotels” in a natural setting: VIVOOD Landscape Hotels. The first of these unique properties is set in the unspoiled Valley of Guadalest.

VIVOOD’s most important added value is the natural landscape that surrounds it. To protect and preserve this asset, the management implements strategic strategies:
· Restoration and care of the landscape
· Adaptation to the terrain
· Foundations are removable and concrete-free
· Use of local materials with a low carbon footprint
· Use of water-saving cleaning systems
· Low-consumption lighting
· Renewable energies such as solar panels
· Only electric service vehicles are permitted to access the site

Designed for enjoying nature but with all the comforts of an exclusively designed luxury hotel, VIVOOD is a new concept hotel that awakens the senses with experiential, inspirational stays.
It provides sustainable accommodation in a natural environment conducive to active leisure and mindfulness through outdoor sports and leisure pursuits.
