La Cala named Best Hotel in Spain & Europe at International Hotel Awards


La Cala Resort clinched an unprecedented double at the 2019 Europe Hotel Awards, winning accolades for the best 4* hotel in both Spain and Europe.

The remarkable achievement was announced at a red-carpet event in London last week, part of the International Hotel Awards – widely-considered the benchmark of excellence throughout the global hospitality industry.

Strikingly, the recognition comes just a year after Irish owners FBD Holdings instigated a complete refurbishment of the 107-bedroom hotel – part of a series of ambitious works at Spain’s largest golf resort.

Director of La Cala Resort, Sean Corte-Real, said: “This is a monumental achievement that’s beyond even our wildest expectations.

“We are an incredibly tight team focussed on delivering the best possible experience for our guests, and this award is a credit to the hard-work of every single member of staff. Our ambition is to cement La Cala’s reputation as the premier golf holiday destination in Europe and this is an important step towards achieving that.”

The highly-experienced judging team commended La Cala for its outstanding level of service, the range of first-class facilities and the hotel’s stunning location.

Situated in the foothills of the Sierra de Mijas with breath-taking views of the Andalusian countryside and distant Mediterranean, La Cala Resort is a golfing mecca only 30 minutes from Malaga Airport.

La Cala features three championship courses designed by world-renowned architect, Cabell B. Robinson and Spain’s leading Hydrotherapy Heath Spa. With four award-winning restaurants and multiple bars, La Cala sets the standard for sport and leisure holidays in the Costa del Sol. There are also further leisure opportunities with a FIFA-standard football pitch, running circuit, gym, tennis and squash courts.

Nestled between the arresting beauty of the Sierra de Mijas Natural Park and the shimmering Mediterranean Sea, La Cala is a genuine haven of tranquillity. It’s the perfect base for exploring Andalusia and Spain’s cultural cities like Granada, Seville and Malaga.

Playing world-class winter golf has never been easier or better value following the launch of two exclusive off-season packages at the spectacular La Cala Resort in southern Spain.
