La Cala Resort celebrates 35 years of being part of the history of tourism on the Costa del Sol. It was in 1989 when the first stone of its Asia Course was laid, the first of the three courses that make up the resort. Since then, the complex has been growing along with the Costa del Sol destination, becoming a reference in international tourism.


The evolution and prestige achieved by the resort in these 35 years are testimony to its ongoing commitment to excellence. Proof of this are its three 18-hole courses designed by Cabell Robinson and its academy located next to the six-hole par three golf course, which are the jewel in the crown. But, in addition, its facilities include a 107-room hotel, soccer field built according to FIFA international standards, fitness center, gym, tennis and squash courts and 3 paddle tennis courts.

La Cala was purchased by FBD Hotels & Resorts, its current owner, in the late 1980´s. Despite early difficulties and the difficult terrain, FBD, decided to buy the complex with the intention of developing a 54-hole resort with its own hotel. One thousand acres of farmland was purchased for about £5M in the foothills of Mijas. The hotel was built in 1996 with 107 rooms, and in 2005, a luxury Spa was added. With a long-term vision, the first golf course (Campo Asia) was opened in 1990, the second (Campo America) in the mid-90´s and the third (Campo Europa) in 2005.

The latter, recently inaugurated, feature a panoramic design offering 360-degree views of the stunning La Cala landscape.
