Give yourself a five-star treat - the pleasure of combining golf with the best health and beauty treatments. Come to Spain, the perfect place to make your dream come true. Here you will find a range of options to meet your needs.
Let us make a very attractive suggestion: combine your favourite sport, at some of Europe's best golf courses, with the chance of relaxing body and mind at spectacular facilities designed to care for your well-being, under the watchful eye of specialist staff. In Spain there are many different hotel complexes and golf courses offering special packages combing golf and spa treatments. Excellent year-round climate, painstakingly designed golf courses, a full range of top-class facilities, easy access (many are situated just a few kilometres from international airports), the latest treatments... these are just a few of the reasons for making Spain your holiday destination.
There are a range of possibilities, from the Costa del Sol, in Andalusia, to the Costa Brava, in northern Catalonia, not forgetting the coasts of Valencia and Murcia, the Canary Islands and the Balearics, or the area known as Green Spain, in the north of the country.
You are sure to find just what you are looking for. You will not find it difficult, given that there are more and more clubs and establishments which, apart from having their own golf courses, also offer services with a special emphasis on health and beauty treatments. This is the case, for example, of Peralada Golf Club, with its special wine and chocolate-based therapies. Meanwhile, at the Mijas Golf development, you can improve your stroke on the green, and later enjoy therapy sessions with algae and sea water. Another similar case is Sotogrande, in Cadiz province, an area with a great golfing tradition, with courses such as Almenara Hotel-Golf, which, amongst other services, also has Turkish baths and has received the Condé Nast Johansen award for the "Best European Spa Hotel". This kind of services can also be found at places such as the La Manga Club, with its three 18-hole courses and 13 health and beauty treatment rooms; Oliva Nova Golf Course with its relaxation circuit; Torremirona Golf Club, with its full range of anti-stress programmes; and the Montecastillo Hotel & Golf Resort complex.
These are just a few of many facilities to be found in Spain where golf is combined with health and beauty treatments. Another option is to stay at hotels which have modern spa facilities, with the chance to purchase admission cards to play golf on nearby courses. As you can see, the list is long.
All this, along with advice from qualified professionals, and the chance to enjoy privileged natural surroundings. If you require more detailed information on these golf + spa programmes, you should ask at the tourist office of the place you are interested in, or otherwise get in touch directly with the golf course or hotel complex you would like to visit.
Go on, treat yourself to a sporting, health and well-being experience. You won't regret it.
