Hotel Camiral launches signature lifestyle experiences
A new five-star hotel at the world-leading PGA Catalunya Resort near Barcelona is set to elevate the destination way beyond its luxury golf beginnings.
Opened in June, Hotel Camiral is set in the grounds of the scenic 300-hectare resort, on the doorstep of Girona and Barcelona. The contemporary hotel boasts 149 rooms with striking interiors and stunning views over two championship golf courses.
But guests needn’t play golf in order to enjoy all that the resort and the wider area has to offer; Hotel Camiral makes it easy for guests to discover its stunning setting and the riches of the region, with a host of experiences that cover gastronomy, wine, art, culture, sport and leisure.
Guests can leave the greens in favour of hiking, cycling, fishing, snorkeling or kite-surfing, taking in the beautiful Catalonian countryside and the Costa Brava coastline, or simply enjoy the tranquility of the hotel’s beautiful setting.
On-site, visitors can enjoy a picture treasure hunt, which takes in the resort’s most scenic viewpoints; a fitness circuit designed for pros and novices; an orienteering challenge with ice cream rewards and a leisurely stroll on the Camí Ral, or ‘Royal Road’ – the ancient trail that the hotel is named after.
There are several routes across the Greenways of Girona that can be explored from your base at Hotel Camiral, by bike or on foot, or guests can use their time to learn a new skill or perfect an old one. As well as golf lessons Hotel Camiral offers instruction in swimming, diving, tennis and paddle tennis and guided fishing expeditions with the resident ghillie. Successful catches can even be cooked for you by the chef in a celebratory meal.
From private boat trips to balloon rides and Segway tours to skydiving, the hotel also offers once-in-a-lifetime adventures whether you’re on your own, with your partner or family, or in a group.
In addition, the new kids’ club ensures the resort’s youngest guests are always well looked after. Activities include Zumba, pool games, theatre workshops, gardening and plenty of active, outdoor pursuits.
The hotel offers a number of striking dining options, including the a la carte 1477 Restaurant, a lounge bistro and pool-side bar. Each featuring a mix of Mediterranean and international food with a focus on local Catalán cuisine and wine.
Set in the beautiful Catalonian countryside, Hotel Camiral is less than an hour from the vibrant metropolis of Barcelona, 20 minutes from the glorious beaches of the Costa Brava and just 15 minutes from the historic town of Girona. It is the perfect location for sports enthusiasts, culture vultures, foodies and their families, as well as golf-lovers!
