What's the story
“If I had to describe the style of our designs and brands, I would call us pure joie de vivre, seductive, colorful, romantic, sophisticated, and unpredictably classic,” said Daniel Alonso, founder and creative director of Bonhomme. “We want Casa Beatnik Hotel to be your lively sanctuary from where we can share with you our love for the history, culture, land, sea, and people of Galicia.”
Named after the bohemian freethinkers of the 1950s and ’60s, Casa Beatnik Hotel channels the beatnik generation’s sense of style, aspiration, and rebellion to create an exotic escape with maximalist interiors, lush gardens, globally inspired cuisine, and ingredient-led cocktails. Before its rebirth as Casa Beatnik Hotel, the property was once home to Antonio Lopez Ferreiro, a canon of the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, founding member of the Royal Academy of the Galician Language, a prominent Galician writer, and the man responsible for the rediscovery in the 19th century of the reliquary containing the long-lost remains of St. James the Elder, the patron saint of Spain. To bring Casa Beatnik Hotel’s colorful, collaged vision to life, Maison Bonhomme collaborated closely with an incredible design team starring Luca Lanzetta Group, Popham Design, Molteni&Co, Antoniolupi, Sogni Di Cristallo and Viccarbe. A devoted team of stonemasons, ironworkers, carpenters, winemakers, farmers, and master artisans were also instrumental in the meticulous two-year transformation of the 18th-century estate.
Wellness & Spa
- Casa Beatnik Hotel’s wellness and spa team specializes in yoga and multiple massages and rituals.
- The hotel's gardens were planted with over 4,000 indigenous and tropical plants. Some of the more remarkable species were imported from Andalusia and Tuscany, with olive trees ranging in age from 60 years to 600 years and a dramatic entrance driveway flanked by over 20 cypress trees.
Wine & Dine
- Beatnik takes guests on a journey without borders, playing with flavors and ingredients from the eastern Mediterranean to North Africa and across the Atlantic to Mexico and South America.
- Tribu, opening this April is a six-table restaurant offering guests the perfect setting to experience the best the region has to offer, from Rubia Gallega beef and spectacular seafood to rare vegetables, wild game, and wine.
- Anything goes in laid-back Galicia.
- Rates start at EUR 150 per night. All bookings include complimentary amenities like saunas, pool daybeds, parking, and WiFi throughout the property.
- Of the property’s seven acres, Casa Beatnik Hotel’s working winery and vineyard take up nearly three acres. Led by proprietor Juan Carlos Alonso and one of Galicia’s finest winemakers, Rodrigo Méndez of Forjas Del Salnés, their winery and vineyard produces less than 500 cases of single vineyard wine that is 100% old vine Albariño, finished in individually selected French oak barrels. The vineyard is also the custodian of the oldest vine in Galicia, a red varietal known as Cascón. The 400-year-old Cascón vine produces an average of 300 kilos of grapes that they vinify into a very special red wine.
Worth getting out of bed for
- From their pastoral surroundings in the Ribeira do Ulla, guests are just a short drive away from the fishing villages and farmsteads of the Spanish Atlantic Coast. This is Galicia profunda, a rural paradise set against an arresting backdrop of vineyards, working farms, and picturesque villages spanning lush mountains and rugged coastlines, a celebration of our connection to nature and its ever-changing seasons. Galicia is an extraordinary setting that evokes that rare feeling of a place that’s seemingly untouched and slightly lost in time, a destination for global nomads, who arrive to discover the excellence of its culinary treasures, winemakers, chefs, purveyors, and artisans.
- The hotel offers a series of experiences that ensure everyone can find what they're looking for and enjoy the very best that Galicia has to offer. A walking tour of ancient cities, a bucolic picnic, a winery visit, Michelin-starred meals, a quirky country hike along El Camino...
