At the centre of the Costa del Sol, La Cala Resort is the ideal destination for sports enthusiasts. The resort has focused its philosophy on a wide range of quality sports facilities including a football pitch built to FIFA international standards, athletics track, fitness centre, gymnasium, three 18-hole golf courses, tennis and squash courts and three recently opened padel tennis courts.
Its ethos of excellent service and quality facilities has led to La Cala being recognised by Golf World as the best four-star hotel in Spain.
La Cala is leader in sports and leisure activities on the Costa del Sol. The resort has opened three new state-of-the-art padel tennis courts alongside the hotel and Clubhouse. The three courts feature a panoramic design with 360-degree views of the stunning La Cala landscape. The opening marks the completion of another phase of an upgrade that has included extensive improvements both inside and outside the Clubhouse.
La Cala Resort’s Racquet Club is a completely new experience for guests, offering padel, tennis and squash. Visitors have the chance to put their skills to the test in a friendly, active environment.
Set in the Sierra de Mijas hills, with spectacular views of the stunning Andalusian countryside, the magnificent 54-hole La Cala resort offers an idyllic escape in the heart of nature just 20 minutes from Marbella and 30 minutes from Malaga’s international airport. It is the perfect base for exploring Andalucía and its cities packed with culture such as Malaga, Granada and Seville.
Designed by renowned golf course architect Cabell Robinson, La Cala offers three magnificent championship courses; Asia, America and Europe, each with their own unique challenges and breathtaking views, all blending seamlessly into the natural surroundings of trees and flowers rich in bird and woodland life.
This commitment to improve and upgrade La Cala’s facilities has been recognised by several industry awards. In the last year the resort has been honoured by the IAGTO golf tour operators’ association, which voted La Cala as one of the resorts with “the best experience and service for golf-tourism customers” for the second year in a row. La Cala received the IAGTO Outstanding Service Award 2023, a distinction given to only eight other resorts in Spain. This award follows the recent recognition by the Golf World Top 100 Rankings, which ranked La Cala as the 73rd best golf resort in the world.
La Cala boasts a 107-room hotel as well as extensive property for sale and rent. Residents can enjoy the luxurious spa and a range of excellent restaurants and bars.
