The Hotel Almenara is currently undergoing a major refurbishment and is set to reopen in Spring of 2021. The hotel will reopen as a 5-star luxury hotel and rebranded ‘SO/Sotogrande’ part of Accor Hotels.
The new branding is based on a management contract signed between the developer Sotogrande SA and Accor’s luxury lifestyle brand SO/ Hotels & Resorts.
“We are thrilled that Accor has placed its trust in Sotogrande as a destination. The opening of The SO/ Sotogrande Resort & Spa, will mark an exciting new phase in our consistent efforts to present all the attributes expected of a high-end destination like ours,”
The new luxury hotel will feature 151 stylish rooms with 24 suites, setting new standards for true luxury hospitality within the destination.
At the westernmost end of the Costa del Sol in sunny southern Spain, where world-class golf courses roll down to the Mediterranean Sea, SO/ Sotogrande awaits your arrival. Sheltered from inquisitive eyes in the Andalusian countryside, live life the Spanish way for a family holiday, golf vacation or spa break at this brand new 5-star wellness retreat.
Once upon a time, on this very spot, was a picturesque cortijo. While the original whitewashed walls have long disappeared, the rustic and convivial farmhouse spirit has been revived with contemporary flair by masterful architects and designers, notably swimwear guru Dolores Cortés.
From the moment you arrive, you are swept away to a world of wellness and serenity. A world where each day starts like a blank canvas for you to paint with the colors and emotions of your choice. Choose to explore the surrounding tapestry of verdant hills and valleys by foot, bike or horseback.
Dive into the aquamarine waters of the Alboran Sea, then sail across them on a majestic yacht. Practice your swing on one of the many world-renowned golf greens that surround the hotel. Or simply spend indulgent days within its white walls, shady arcades and idyllic grounds. A kingdom unto itself, SO/ Sotogrande is much more than just stylish rooms and luxurious suites beyond parallel. With outdoor and indoor swimming pools, a state-of-the-art spa and fitness facilities alongside landscaped gardens, beaches and golf opportunities galore, there is no end to the amount of fun and pampering to experience.
Although, with six restaurants and bars offering some of the finest cuisine in the region, you may never feel the need to leave the resort. Should you wish to explore beyond this bubble of tranquility, however, your options are endless. The jet set appeal of Marbella and Puerto Banús is only 40 minutes away by car. The big city vibe of Seville is a 2-hour drive, while the exotic Moroccan coast and the whitewashed medina walls of Tangier are a short ferry trip away. To reach the area’s only 5-star hotel, follow the signs for Sotogrande. We are a scenic 30-minute drive (or quick helicopter ride) from Gibraltar International Airport and just over an hour from the Málaga–Costa del Sol Airport. We can’t wait for you to join us here in sunny Spain so you can experience for yourself the delights of a stay with SO/. Stay tuned for further details on our accommodations and fantastic facilities. ” Accor hotels – SO/ Hotels&Resort
