Gran Meliá Fénix 5* Hotel

With an exceptional location on the well-known Plaza de Colón, the Hotel Gran Meliá Fénix is a leader in the city’s finest accommodations, member of the exclusive group The Leading Hotels of the World, and with the famous DRY Cosmopolitan Bar by Javier de las Muelas, the highest expression of luxury and service accompanied by tradicional Spanish charm.

Abadia Retuera LeDomain 5*

The Estate Abadía Retuerta LeDomaine is set like a jewel among the string of exclusive wine estates found along the Duero river. If the heart of the estate is the winery, its soul is the ancient 12th-century abbey, a beloved and carefully restored Spanish cultural heritage site.

The hotel that has now emerged from within the cloistered Romanesque-Baroque monastery walls is a refined 5-star setting where guests will enjoy privacy of the priviledged, the lap of luxury and the heart of the history.

Parador de Lerma 4*

The amazing ducal palace at Lerma, now a Parador, is located in the upper part of the city. The hotel features a central courtyard surrounded by lovely columned galleries. The elegant majesty of this palace from the era of the Hapsburgs and its lovely interiors, with beautifully designed lighting and décor, will make your stay an unforgettable experience.

At night, the lights of the Parador make it look even more magnificent and stately.

Viura Hotel 4*

Composed of whimsically superimposed cubes that seem to surge forcefully from the centre of the earth; punctuated by French windows that flood the rooms with views of the relaxing scenery.

Situated in Villabuena de Álava, Viura is perfect as a base for discovering the wine region of Rioja. Only 20 minutes away from Logroño and from Haro and 10 minutes from such emblematic wine cellars as Ysios and Marqués de Riscal.

Golf Courses

Golf Santander – La Moraleja No.3 – El Encín Golf – Lerma Golf Course – Las Rioja Alta Golf Club

Madrid

Golf Santander

Located in Grupo Santander City, in Boadilla del Monte (Madrid) is Golf Santander, a par-72 course designed by the famous American architect Rees Jones. Is one of Spain’s best golf courses. From the black tees, or the last tee-off point, the 6,855 metres distance of the Golf Santander course makes it the longest in Spain and one of the longest in Europe.

La Moraleja No. 3

This course bears the Jack Nicklaus signature. The designer has transformed a terrain that was originally flat by introducing small hills at different points, more or less pronounced, in order to achieve a course with multiple play options at almost all the holes.It is configured as a long, classical, parkland-type course; a good challenge for hosting important tournaments, but also very pleasant for any amateur to play.

El Encin Golf

he South Course is a different type of course in that it offers broad, rolling fairways, large greens, and an infinite number of pin positions.

It’s an exciting course to play and will not leave you indifferent; in short, it bears the distinctive hallmark of Von Hagge, Smelek & Baril. In 2011 it hosted a European Tour event, the Bankia Madrid Masters, as well as some Challenge Tour events.

Ribera del Duero

Lerma Golf Course

Constructed in 1992 on a former 220-hectare hunting estate called La Andaya, over its 18 holes the the Lerma golf course combines the splendid simplicity of Castilian nature with the entertaining complexity of the golf game.

It is a landscape of spacious, luminous horizons, moderate terrain, and abundant vegetation. It is easily walked and requires maximum concentration on its generous greens.

Rioja Alta Golf Club

Located in the heart of the Rioja Alta, just 5 km from Santo Domingo de la Calzada. Designed by Enrique Saenger, the course is arranged around a vast area of leafy forests, with century-old oak trees and four majestic lakes forming part of a specially protected nature reserve in its interior.

The 18-hole par-72 course has a total length of 6,461 metres from the white tees and 101 strategically-positioned bunkers.
