Award Winning La Cala Golf Resort to Reopen

By: Golfshake Editor | Thu 04 Jun 2020 | Comments

The award-winning La Cala Resort, including its stunning 4* hotel and leading hydrotherapy spa, is set to reopen on June 15th, the next stage in the return of tourism to the spectacular Costa del Sol.

In a welcome boost to the local economy, the 107-room hotel – named the best in Europe at the 2019 Europe Hotel Awards – is already accepting bookings with international travel set to resume later this summer.

The move follows the phased resumption of golf last month at La Cala, with players from across Malaga province flocking to play Cabell B. Robinson’s internationally-renowned Asia Course.

Testament to the recent investment from Irish owners Farmers Business Developments (FBD), La Cala was named the Best 4* Golf Resort in Spain at the 2019 International Travel Awards. The recognition comes a year after the complete refurbishment of the hotel and a raft of course upgrades including the installation of new Bermuda grass greens and refurbishment of every bunker on the Asia Course.

La Cala Resort General Manager, Sean Corte-Real, said: “We are extremely excited to lead the way in reopening as tourism returns to Spain’s golf coast.

“At La Cala we are blessed to have so much wide open space – three championship golf courses spread over 400 hectares.

“With Andalucía one of the least affected regions in Europe, and as international travel returns, I am confident that La Cala will be seen as a safe haven where golfers and holiday makers can enjoy the resort again, away from the hustle and bustle elsewhere on the Costa del Sol.”

To mark the planned reopening, La Cala has unveiled a new promotional video in collaboration with former European Tour player Gary Murphy, showcasing the best of the resort.

The successful resumption of play on the Asia course has seen golfers follow simple Covid-19 protocols and enjoy food and drink on the resort’s extensive outdoor terrace while following social-distancing guidelines. Similar measures will be announced prior to the reopening of the resort’s  hotel and hydrotherapy spa.

Situated in the foothills of the beautiful Mijas Mountains with breath-taking views of the stunning Andalusian countryside, La Cala offers an idyllic rural retreat for golfers across Europe. The three superb championship courses – Campo America, Campo Asia and Campo Europa – each present unique challenges and slot seamlessly into a natural, undulating backdrop of trees and flowers, rich with birds and wildlife. Designed by famous golf course architect Cabell Robinson, each 18-hole layout has been created to ensure a truly exhilarating experience.

La Cala resort boasts accommodation of the highest standard, including a selection of on-site properties for sale; from attractive 2-bedroom apartments to opulent 5-bedroom villas spread throughout the estate. Residents can enjoy the luxurious spa and a selection of excellent restaurants and bars. There are also further leisure opportunities with a FIFA-standard football pitch, running circuit, gym, tennis and squash courts.
