We were delighted to attend the pre-opening this weekend of the Grand Hyatt La Manga Club Golf & Spa, which truly marks a milestone in the illustrious history of our resort. This is the first Grand Hyatt hotel in the country, and a fitting match for a resort with 50 years of history and facilities unlike any other leisure and sport destination in Europe.
The best luxury hotel in Murcia
For months, we have been eagerly anticipating the first look at the renovated interiors of the hotel, as well as the changes and improvements in its facilities to bring it up to the standards of Grand Hyatt. The 5-star hotel offers 192 elegant rooms with the highest levels of service guaranteed, ranging from standards with a king bed to family rooms to suites to deluxe rooms with access to the exclusive Grand Club lounge and other benefits.
The central swimming pool has become the Family Pool, to which all our guests have access, and which has a Children’s Pool adjacent to it. But the real joy is in the new infinity pool, which enjoys lovely views and is for adults only. Non-guests can also discover these new facilities by getting one of the available day passes.
The new Alma’ Spa is a delight. Ensconced in the hotel itself rather than in the old wellness center building, Alma’ has a fitness centre for guests and hydrotherapy and treatment areas for guests and others. A thermal contrast pool, sauna, steam baths, an ice fountain, and several other water features await you at Alma’. You can spend the whole day in the circuit or take a break for one of the many luxurious treatments. There are 6 body massages to choose from and 5 facials, as well as a series of series of restorative body treatments including hammam, citrus, honey, and more. Manicures, pedicures and waxing are available, and the spa can also be accessed with discounts if you choose to get a day pass.
Fine dining at La Manga Club
The best restaurants in the resort remain unchanged, so you’ll still be able to enjoy the medley of Asian dishes at Asia; the superb tasting menu and wine list at Amapola; the fresh fish, seafood and view at the beachfront La Cala; Trastevere Italian at Don Luigi; and the tasty casual fare at 37 Spikes & Sports Bar and the poolside Sol y Sombra.
The dining game at La Manga Club has been upped, though, with the addition of three new venues. The first you’ll want to try is Hatsune, a Japanese sushi, sashimi and tapas bar located inside the Grand Hyatt La Manga Club Golf & Spa. It combines the intimacy of a sushi restaurant with the relaxed cool of an izakaya, and you may have to come back more than once to try all the amazing items on the menu.
If you’ve decided to spend the day with your partner at the adults-only La Cascada pool, you’ll likely end up staying for lunch and to sample the extensive wine list at the eponymous restaurant. The menu at this quiet poolside venue is heavily seafood- and fish-based, with seabass, turbot, and seafood rice among the entrées, as well as mussels, baby lobster, and clams – besides many other options – on the menu of starters. With plenty of outdoor seating and a view of the golf course, you may never want to leave.
Don’t head up to bed before a nightcap at The Last Green, the new lobby lounge bar. Snacks, coffee, cocktails, beer, and other drinks are all available, and the small live performance area will keep you entertained. If there’s a game on, this is your destination for meeting up with other fans and enjoying the spectacle together. You won’t want to leave before you finish your heated debate about which team performed best.
If you haven’t yet explored the hotel, come over to the Grand Hyatt La Manga Club Golf & Spa and see what awaits you. The resort has entered a new era with this amazing new facility, and La Manga Club Properties, golf, tennis, and the rest of our resort are ready for the ride.
