Abadía Retuerta LeDomaine, the exclusive hotel located in a restored 12th- century abbey surrounded by vineyards in Spain’s Duero winegrowing region, has created a stunning 360° virtual reality video – the first by any hotel in Spain – that allows the viewer to see and intimately experience every area and aspect of the property.
This sophisticated, versatile and complete video immersion into LeDomaine can be experienced here or click the 360° button on the Home Page of the hotel’s website: www.ledomaine.es.
“Our new 360° virtual reality video is the ideal tool for travellers and potential guests looking to learn about LeDomaine and get a true feel for what it’s like to stay at the hotel,” said Andres Araya, Managing Director of Abadía Retuerta LeDomaine. “The video control button can be manipulated, for example, to circle around a guest room in all directions, viewing every detail and nook and cranny, from floor to ceiling.”
LeDomaine’s virtual reality video combines a number of optical techniques to simulate a visual immersive environment, including sensors, a gyroscope and an accelerometer, which adapt to the user’s movement to create the feeling of being inside the scene.
“We are very excited to be pioneering in Spain a ground-breaking 360° virtual reality tour of a hotel,” said Mr. Araya. “Producing the video has been a great team effort taking more than three months, involving all departments of the hotel and employing the latest technology – resulting in a magnificent virtual experience, unparalleled in the intensity of the immersion in the subject, that can be enjoyed anywhere in the world on a computer or smartphone.”
