The Accor Fairmont Hotel & Residences brand will convert an existing golf resort in southern Spain into a luxury resort under its umbrella.
The Hacienda Alcaidesa Links Golf Resort in the Cadiz municipality of San Roque will be transformed into Fairmont La Hacienda, with a soft launch within the next 12 months and a full opening scheduled for Easter 2024.
Following the summer opening of the redesigned La Hacienda course, the 323-room hotel and villas will complete the multimillion-euro investment project and the elevation of the resort into a flagship golf destination in the south of Europe.
Accommodation will include 153 hotel rooms with three junior suites and two two-bedroom suites, as well as 51 villas, 30 junior suites and 30 one-bedroom suites. 36 other villas will be sold to third parties and will be equipped with a private swimming pool, a spacious living room and kitchen facilities.
The resort will also include five restaurants and bars, including a pool bar and a beach restaurant, as well as swimming pools, a spa, a fitness center, a ballroom and a selection of flexible meeting rooms. All of this is in addition to two golf courses, Heathland and The Links, as well as a contemporary clubhouse, halfway house with restaurant, driving range and practice area.
The gated golf and residential development will be set in 400 hectares of land with beach views of the Mediterranean, Gibraltar and Africa.
Javier Illán, President and CEO of the project developer, Millenium Hospitality Real Estate, said: “We are proud that a globally recognized brand such as Fairmont has signed on to manage one of our properties, particularly in the one of the main luxury destinations in Spain. . I am convinced that the future Fairmont hotel will be a benchmark for luxury in Europe and, without a doubt, one of the assets with the greatest potential value in our portfolio.
The luxury hotel brand Fairmont Hotels & Resorts has a portfolio of more than 80 properties worldwide, with more than 30 in the pipeline, including: Fairmont La Marina Rabat-Sale in Morocco, Fairmont Costa Canuva in Punta Mita, Mexico, and Fairmont Hotel Mumbai Airport in India.
