What makes La Bobadilla sustainable?
The hotel in itself is an invitation to get away from society both physically and emotionally, overcome fatigue and fully enjoy a creative break. This is also possible thanks to the walls, courtyards and fountains in this Nasrid palacé hidden in the mountains of Loja.
La Bobadilla, a Royal Hideaway Hotel, represents the concepts of luxury and sustainability. To achieve this, numerous protocols and measures have been implemented in accordance with its environmentally-responsible philosophy.
The hotel has reduced CO emissions by 80%2 in the atmosphere and up to 45% energy consumption. To achieve these significant figures, a pioneering biomass plant has been installed, replacing the propane gas with fuel from olive pits obtained from the olive grove in which the complex is located.
The use of eco-friendly and chemical-free products and detergents in cleaning processes is another initiative implemented by the hotel.
This commitment also extends to our Spa center&Wellness, which heats its waters thanks to the biomass plant. Furthermore, the treatments offered only use 100% natural ingredients with organic and bio-active properties, certified by ECOCERT.
The swimming pool, with a capacity of 1,619,000 litres of water, has its own filter system and has been treated with a waterproof product imported directly from New Zealand.

Our relationship with our customers is very close. We are many people who value the human part much more than any other Luxury commodity that can be found in a hotel. This is our opinion and philosophy: familiar, green and human. Our values are: Quality: We promise that the product or service is the best as possible. Solidarity: We search collective well-being before anything else. We extrapolate all this to our social welfare policy in general. We help in what we can to the most disadvantaged and we have the commitment of collaboration with companies or foundations that work with disabled people. Trust: We are what we receive. Happy workers make happy guests and this makes a business successful. Teamwork: It helps us to have more tolerance and respect with others. The contribution of ideas from a group of people enriches, always adds, never subtracts. Originality: It is very difficult to be original in the hotel industry, but we are original in the way we treat and address to our customers. Simplicity: Being simple does not mean being less competitive, it is simply betting on realistic goals and gradually incorporating new ones. Humanity: Anticipating the feelings, sensations, concerns… of our guests, helps us to be more empathetic and caring with them.

Built entirely with non-treated natural wood.

The larch tree wood is of a beautiful appearance thanks to its hues and grained patterns. It’s used for the tree top house main structure as well as for the tongue and groove flooring, its walls and ceilings.
Our tree top houses benefit from double glazing and also from 10cm of ceiling and flooring insulation in order to provide better winter protection.
The larch roof tiles are cut specially to ensure better rain cover.
Each balcony and ladder are uniquely designed using heather and arbutus wood in order to blend the tree top houses within their natural environment and merge them with the woodland.
