Less than an hour away from Barcelona is eco-resort Mas Salagros, the ideal venue if you’re searching for a sustainable escape for your event.
Furnished with recycled materials and a plant-based roof that act as a thermal insulator, absorbing CO2, retaining humidity and rain water to encourage biodiversity, Mas Salagros has achieved a Green Globe certification, the highest standard for sustainability in the tourism sector in the world. Priding themselves on an organic approach to all they do, this is a 5 star destination that embraces slow living; from the clever design, soothing spa and wellbeing activities to the eco-friendly Catalan cuisine.
Mas Salagros is on a mission to bring ecology to the hotel industry and promote a more sustainable approach. It’s the first 100% eco-friendly resort in the region, located in a nature reserve and comes with meeting rooms featuring views of the Parc de la Serralada Litoral (also perfect for hiking trails). Just a 30 minutes drive to Barcelona or a 15 minute drive to North Barcelona beaches, vineyards and wineries in the Alella region, 18 holes Golf Club, La Roca Village Shopping Center and Catalunya Race Track there are plenty of activities nearby that you can incorporate into your event or incentive trip.
But you’re unlikely to want to leave. The resort features a fantastic thermal bath circuit managed by the international firm AIRE Ancient Baths Vallromanes. You’re encouraged to wind down and embrace a gentler pace, with slow activities including yoga lessons to shinrin-yoku (forest bathing) in the forests of the Serralada Litoraral protected park.
Spread over 5 hectares there are 60 guest rooms, including 5 suites and 17 junior suites and 7 meeting spaces from 15 to 200 sqm, all with daylight, plus facilities for workshops.
Mas Salagros serves top-quality organic Mediterranean cuisine. Their philosophy is based on eating what the land gives you, so their menu changes according to the different seasons of the year. This hotel has three incredible places to eat: Restaurant 1497, which serves select Mediterranean cuisine (Including vegan), Cibus Restaurant for more casual cusine or lunch and Gastro Wine Bar, where you can enjoy a glass of wine and an excellent selection of tapas and small dishes over amazing views.
