The Best Resorts to Experience on The Costa Brava
The Costa Brava in Spain is a tremendous destination for all holidaymakers - including golfers! Our travel partners Golfbreaks have packages to many spectacular resorts in the region, but to provide an extra touch of inspiration, we take a closer look at some of the finest venues that you can choose from.
While you may be aware of the two sensational golf courses that PGA Catalunya proudly boasts, they are not the sole attraction that encourages guests to return annually. There is an array of activities to do whilst at the resort, including sports recovery or massaging. Professionals will be able to offer: cryotherapy, oxygen chamber therapy, photo bio modulation and IV infusions.
There are three primary accommodation options to choose from too. Hotel Camiral is the premium complex and can offer a wide range of room options. The LaVida Hotel has a stylish design and the vibrant restaurant, Bella’s, offers informal dining that has a large outdoor terrace that also allows access to the pool. The two courses, Stadium and Tour, have both featured on the European Tour and the former is commonly ranked as the #1 course throughout the entirety of Spain.
Situated in the heart of Emporda lies Hotel Emporda Golf. Boasting two beautiful and challenging golf courses, whether you tackle the Emporda Links or the Emporda Forest, you are guaranteed to have an afternoon of fun. The links has been designed with the English seaside in mind and you’ll be required to navigate your way around dunes, lakes and strategically placed bunkers. The Forest mirrors a more traditional parkland track but the challenge still remains.
Away from the course and there are plentiful activities to keep your party entertained. Within the local vicinity is the vibrant city of Girona, cycling routes, the iconic Salvador Dail’s artistic work, incredible beaches and historical medieval and charming villages. The hotel itself has 86 double rooms, seven familiar rooms, five junior suites and three superior suites - that are marketed for couples or families. The restaurant, that is located in the clubhouse, serves up an array of food that is certain to cater to all tastes.
Hotel Golf Peralada may not be as popular as the previous two entries, but its enticing wine spa will provide the perfect sanctuary for evening entertainment. Each room has been designed with contemporary styles in mind and it offers a unique environment that guarantees a revitalising stay in complete comfort. There are a total of 64 rooms based at the hotel. The restaurant offers a healthy haute cuisine, where you’ll be able to enjoy traditional dishes or sample different cultural food.
The wine spa is an oasis of peace and wellness. With such a wide range of wine tasting available, be careful not to overdo the night before or you’ll be in danger of missing the splendid golf course that the hotel proudly boasts. It was built on an unspoilt piece of landscape and the warm Mediterranean climate provides a seamless afternoon of entertainment.
Torremirona Relais Golf & Spa is located roughly an hour away from Girona, situated closer to the French border. While it may not boast the vibrant environment that the Emporda-based resorts do, there is seldom reason to leave the jam-packed resort. You can either stay in a hotel room or an apartment and the hotel’s 4-star rating is thanks to its stylish rooms but also the food served at restaurant El Canigo. It is here that you will taste some of the best Mediterranean food with fresh fish, meats, fruits and vegetables being replenished on a daily basis.
The Dubhe Spa is one of the best on the Costa Brava as its modern style and activities reflects the quality of the resort. It has a jacuzzi, sauna, hammam, bi-thermal showers and a relaxation area. The 18-hole golf course will appeal to all types of golfers and the 350m driving range and extensive practice facilities will have you readily prepared for your round in the Spanish sun. The area between Pyrenees and the Mediterranean, which this course sits upon, is well-known for its excellent climate and its warm weather 365 days a year.
