Exclusive and elegant hotel

Jan 10, 2012 No Comments by

Located between Marbella and Sotogrande you will find the true beauty that is Finca Cortesin. The hotel shares the resort complex with an upscale residential community and championship golf course. Accessed through a white gate, an extensive driveway leads to up to the exclusive front entrance complete where an elegant valet awaits you and your bags. The option is available to stay within the 5 star hotel or hire one of the luxurious villa’s or apartments. I selected the former wanting to be fully immersed in the complete Finca Cortesin experience. The Spanish colonial architecture and period marble floors instantly took my breath away on arrival, well-selected antiques and tapestries accessorized the walls and a welcoming receptionist took any hassle out of the check in procedure.

My executive suite contained all the necessary amenities expected of a five star bedroom as well as some additional memorable touches such as the artistic gourmet chocolate plant, courtesy of the in-house pastry chef. Beds draped in sheer white linen, elegant arrangements of period furnishings and bold floral curtains decorated the main room, whilst the spacious, adjacent living room presented luminosity and openness. During my visit I had the pleasure of touring some of the alternative accommodation options and whilst my room was exquisite, the pool suites complete with an outdoor terrace and small lap pool embedded in the stone courtyard overlooking the sea or golf courses was exceptional. Families or larger parties should also consider the private villas with step-down living areas and full kitchens and the exclusive option of a private chef.

On the culinary side, three gourmet restaurants offer varying menus of Mediterranean, Italian and Asian-inspired cuisines are available but Don Giovanni, the Italian eatery, leads the pack with an extraordinary level of authenticity evident in each dish. The divergent Schilo perfectly encompasses Arabic and Asian flavours in a way only a first class fine dining establishment can.

I can’t review Finca Cortesin without mentioning the golf course, home to the VOLVO World Play Match, one of the most historic and prestigious golf competitions in the world, ranked as one of the best courses in the whole of Spain. For those of you not on the golf circuit, a massive spa awaits with indoor thermal baths, snow cave, Finnish sauna and ice plunge or Roman-style pools. There really is something at Finca Cortesin for everyone.
