Last fall a boutique hotel and resort opened to the public in the Costa del Sol, Spain. The luxurious Finca Cortesin Hotel was beautiful and promptly earned a spot on Condé Nast Traveler’s Hot List of new hotels, but it was missing something…
Can you guess what it was?
A spa of course! Now, they’ve remedied that deficit with a luxurious 23,000 square-foot-spa. Guests can now indulge in a Turkish hamam (or steam bath) and then cool off in the Snow Cave, inspired by the Finnish tradition of rolling in the snow after a sauna as a way to boost immune defenses. A 114-foot indoor pool is bathed in natural light as well as two outdoor pools, one of which is Olympic-size. Both pools offer sweeping views of the Mediterranean.
The spa is just the latest amenity at the Moorish-style resort, 45 minutes west of the international airport in Málaga. The Finca Cortesin has two restaurants, a fountained courtyard and a scenically rolling golf course that hosts the PGA European Tour’s Volvo Match Play Championship.
