In addition to its proximity to Málaga airport, Río Real is also conveniently located for those using Gibraltar airport, arriving on cruise ships in Málaga port or travelling on Spain’s pacesetting high-speed AVE rail network (just two and a half hours from Madrid). It is also the ideal starting point for visits to Andalucía’s other enchanting provinces… including the venerable Granada, Córdoba and Sevilla.
For those who are happy to remain in the one spot, and enjoy its attractions to the fullest, Marbella is the epicentre of leisure on the Costa del Sol, ideal for family holidays, short getaways from all parts of Europe, and golfing trips with friends – especially as the area is blessed with more than 300 days of sunshine a year.
Major Golfing Capital
Marbella has the highest number of golf courses of any municipality in Spain, and Río Real is one of its stars. Designed by Javier Arana, considered Spain’s finest golf course architect, and inaugurated in 1965, Río Real’s 18 superbly maintained holes meander around the river that gives the club its name, all the way down to the Mediterranean Sea, with incomparable views along the way in stunning natural surroundings highlighted by abundant pine, palm, olive and casuarina trees.
A par-72 extending more than 6,000 metres, the course is rated one of the finest in Spain by the Royal Spanish Golf Federation, providing a fun challenge for golfers of all levels, with a diverse selection of holes that allow you to use every club in the bag.
A specialist maintenance team ensures the course is in top condition throughout the year, equipped with cutting-edge, latest-generation technological systems and always committed to complete respect for the environment.
Accommodation Par Excellence
Inaugurated in 2001, Río Real Golf Boutique Hotel is a standard-bearer when it comes to quality service and attention for guests, featuring the chic style of renowned interior decorator Pascua Ortega and offering outstanding views of both the golf course and the coastline.
Its 30 exclusively designed rooms and suites are a fusion of Andalucian tradition and contemporary innovation, perfectly in tune with the demands and desires of 21st century guests.
In line with the hotel’s core principle that “small details make the difference”, the hotel’s limited number of rooms means guests can enjoy personal and direct service of the highest quality possible.
So Much More at Río Real
Río Real Golf & Hotel has one of the most prestigious golf academies on the Costa del Sol, equipped to the level of a high-performance sports centre and headed by highly respected professional Sergio de Céspedes (TPI Certificate).
The academy comprises an exceptional practice range, 15 covered tee areas, three greens, a 1,000 square metre approach and putting area with a green and two practice bunkers, another putting green with technical coaching support equipment, and a special lecture room with innovative analysis systems.
Of course, golf is not the only thing in life, even for inveterate enthusiasts! With that in mind, Río Real offers excellent wellness amenities where, after their round, golfers can enjoy relaxing therapeutic body and facial massages.
Golfers also love their cuisine – especially in a culinary haven like Spain – and Río Real’s 19th Hole restaurant provides an incomparable setting, privileged views of the course, and gastronomy for all tastes and preferences. A cosy meeting point for special celebrations or pleasant gatherings with family and friends… and for savouring the succulent flavours of both Mediterranean and international cuisine.
