Marbella, 22th July 2020. Río Real Golf & Hotel announce the full reopening of the resort on 29 July when the exclusive Boutique Hotel and restaurant join the 18-hole golf course in offering one of the safest spaces in Marbella this summer. Guests can look forward to wide open spaces (indoor and out), maximum privacy and stringent anti-covid-19 measures, all in select surroundings just outside Marbella. Hotel bookings for the 30 boutique rooms and suites are now available.

A Resort with a difference

Río Real Golf & Hotel proudly announces the full reopening of the resort on 29 July when the Boutique Hotel – with just 30 rooms – and the gourmet restaurant El Club open to guests. They join the emblematic 18-hole golf course, which has been busy with golfers keen to make the most of Rio Real’s open spaces in the midst of nature since 19 May.

Río Real Golf & Hotel Resort, designed to offer exclusive comfort, offers characteristics that come into their own this summer. Set on the golf course that stretches over 6,000m from the beach itself into the Sierra Blanca foothills, plenty of personal space is guaranteed at the Resort.

Indoor space to call your own – as well as generously-sized communal areas, the boutique hotel has just 30 rooms and suites. All come spacious (with at least ??m² and over 100m² in the case of the Albatross Suite) and all have a large private terrace with views over the golf course. The restaurant too offers ample space for guests with a pleasant outdoor terrace with sea and mountain views. The Clubhouse also has a wide-open terrace, perfect for an al fresco drink or snack.

Outdoor space just for you – Río Real Golf & Hotel also guarantees guests plenty of space outside too. The golf course has two holes on the beach itself, a unique feature in Marbella and the entire resort enjoys a refreshing sea breeze. The outdoor pool area, again with mountain views, is spacious and offers easy social distancing while guests relax. Nature at its best surrounds the resort and although Río Real is only 5 minutes’ drive from Marbella, bird song is the only noise.

Health and safety come first, always

When Rio Real Golf reopened in mid-May, it did too with stringent health and safety measures in place. Client peace of mind has always been the resort’s maxim and in the current covid-19 situation our staff have taken this to an even higher level.

The strict protocol, putting guests’ safety first always, is in place throughout the resort. Our hotel and restaurant staff are fully trained in its implications and practice. Guests can therefore rest assured that safe and spacious relaxation in privileged surroundings is guaranteed. As too is impeccable service, a distinctive feature that has accompanied the resort since it opened in 1965.

Booking available now

Guests may book their stay at Río Real Golf & Hotel from 29 July onwards via our secure online booking system. Options include exclusive Stay & Play packages for those who wish to combine a stay in spacious surroundings with golf on one of the most iconic courses on the Costa del Sol.
