Where Gijón smells most of cider, not far from where one can see Villaviciosa, this singular hotel nicely breaks the surrounding green with its clean lined building, in wood, sandstone, glass and zinc. Bal is above all a modern space which allows us, through the generously sized windows, to see the Asturian countryside, from our room or under the comforting sprays of its avant-garde spa. New age and vanguard, which successfully combine leathers and wood, with furniture of classical inspiration, noble fabrics and standard designs. With these standards Bal bets for a perfect formula which combines leisure and work, fantastic meeting rooms, only a step away from Gijón, from the Cantabric main road and the La Ñora beach. From our room we can contemplate the Sueve massif silhouette, (mithical mountain of the “asturcones” (asturian breed of horses) And between the mountain and us, the hotel garden. We must also mention the parking lot which has an electric car battery recharging station which reinforces even more the philosophy of respect for the environment. Here, between the Sueve and the sea, between greens and warm waters we have found a favourite reference for our stays in coastal Asturias.
