PGA Catalunya Resort Opens 5* Hotel
Spain's PGA Catalunya Resort, near Barcelona, has opened its five-star hotel, Hotel Camiral, which is likely to enhance the reputation of one of the continent's leading golf destinations even further.
Following an investment of €33 million, Hotel Camiral is a stellar addition to the world-class facilities already on offer at the European Tour Destination, which include Spain’s number one golf course, Europe’s largest chipping and putting green, the Sergio Garcia Junior Golf Academy and the Dave Pelz Spanish Golf School.
Created by the critically-acclaimed interior designer Lazaro Rosa-Violán, the luxury hotel features 149 rooms, which combine contemporary design with striking urban-chic interiors to complement the modern, low-density development that has made PGA Catalunya Resort one of the most sought after golf destinations in the world.
The hotel extends the Costa Brava resort’s commitment to being a world-leading lifestyle destination with a host of experiences that cover gastronomy, wine, art, culture, sport and leisure, as well as once-in-a-lifetime adventures, enabling guests to discover the riches of the venue and the region.
Outdoor pursuits include hiking, cycling, fishing, snorkeling and kite-surfing, taking in the beautiful Catalonian countryside and the Costa Brava coastline, while a leisurely stroll on the Camí Ral, or ‘Royal Road’ – the ancient trail the hotel is named after that winds its way through the resort – enables guests to enjoy the tranquil setting and the destination’s most scenic viewpoints.
Private boat trips, balloon rides, Segway tours, skydiving experiences and guided fishing expeditions can also be organised through the hotel’s exclusive concierge service, while the new kids’ club ensures the resort’s youngest guests are also looked after, offering activities such as Zumba, pool games, theatre workshops, gardening and plenty of outdoor pursuits.
The hotel adds three new dining options, including the à la carte 1477 restaurant, which serves European cuisine with distinctly Catalan influences, a lounge bistro and a pool-side bar – all specialising in produce from the local area and taking inspiration from the gourmet scene on the award-winning venue’s doorstep.
David Plana, PGA Catalunya Resort’s CEO, said: “The opening of Hotel Camiral follows a programme of investments at the resort, which started in 2010 with extensive upgrades to the Stadium Course. It is the first element of a €53 million development plan, which will also see a new vineyard, additional sports facilities, an equestrian centre and a man-made recreational lake added to the resort over the next three years – underlining our continued commitment to ensuring PGA Catalunya Resort maintains its status as a leading global golf and lifestyle destination.”
Less than an hour from the vibrant metropolis of Barcelona, 20 minutes from the beaches of the Costa Brava and just 15 minutes from the historic town of Girona, Hotel Camiral will be the perfect location for golfers, sports enthusiasts, culture aficionados and their families visiting this unique region in the north-east of Spain.
PGA Catalunya Resort has been ranked among the World’s Top 100 Golf Courses (Golf World) and voted 2015 Golf Resort of the Year for Europe (IAGTO).
