Hotel Camiral Review: The perfect mix of five-star wellness and golf in Girona

Nothing is done by halves in Hotel Camiral. The five-star hotel which is owned by Irish businessman Denis O’Brien and his wife Catherine sits on a thousand acres of lush greenery in PGA Catalunya and Wellness just 20 minutes outside the historic city of Girona and has not just one award-winning golf course but two on site for golfers to enjoy.

One Stadium course was built with a view to hosting the Ryder cup in the future, while the other Tour course is for those of us looking for a less taxing round of golf.

The Irish couple were closely involved in the design of the hotel which also boasts an enormous infinity pool and the most incredible wellness centre which has had millions spent on it putting it in the top 10 wellness centres in Europe. It offers a range of next generation therapies normally only accessible at medical centres or elite sports facilities.

Here you can be plunged to minus 110 degrees in a cryotherapy chamber to ease any tension you may have in your golf swing, or choose to be infused with vitamins and minerals to boost your immunity. For the non-elite athletes there are massages and facials on the menu, and afterward, you can unwind in the exquisite relaxation area with a private pool.

The hotel which is located just a 10 minute drive from Girona airport was completely refurbished in 2016 following a 33million euro renovation by top Spanish interior designer Lázaro Rosa-Violan and the results are a feast for the eyes.

When you drive into the plush grounds the trendy glass exterior gives little away as to what lies within.

As you look downstairs from the lobby, 20-foot floor-to-ceiling windows allow light to pour into the retro library dotted with rugs and cowhide chairs.

A quirky science laboratory takes over one whole wall complete with test tubes, drawings of birds and glass vials. It is strange to see it in such a setting, but fascinating to look at each time you walk past as there is always something new to see behind the glass.

Another wall by the art deco bar houses dozens and dozens of green ratafia liqueur bottles typical in Catalan as an after-dinner digestif. It’s a nice nod to the region.

In fact, there are touches of Catalan everywhere, the fine dining restaurant overlooking the enormous pool is called 1477, named after the year they found the first menu written in the Catalan language in Barcelona.

There are plush armchairs to sit in all around the lobby which extends to several levels. Expensive art adorns all the walls and there are sculptures to admire at every turn.

Hotel Camiral has 145 bedrooms including nine suites. Many of the rooms look out over the swimming pool and feature large balconies.

The hand-painted tiles in the bathrooms and Elemis toiletries add a touch of luxury, and the turn-down service at night makes the room brand new before you fall into bed.

For families, there is a wealth of options to keep children amused. There is a kids’ club for the little ones in a purpose built hut near the pool, and for tweens and for teenagers there is a host of free activities from ziplining in the hotel’s own forest adventure park which has two circuits to mini-golf, bike tours, golf buggy challenges, cookery, craft making, and even sunset yoga.

Private golf lessons are also reasonably priced at €60 and you can also take tennis lessons at one of the compounds many courts.

Food wise there are a number of options. The fine dining 1477 offers Catalan and modern European cuisine.

Paella squid and steaks all feature on the menu. The less informal lounge bar offers burgers and salads and is a handy place to feed children who often dive into the pool beside it for a late evening swim.

The clubhouse café which is beautifully decorated is a great option for dining overlooking the course. Here you can have anything from a club sandwich to steamed clams.

There are lots of different options to stay in on the estate apart from the hotel. Along with the €3million villas for sale (they go up to €10million) there are apartments that can be rented on the grounds as well as three- and four-bedroom terrace villas. From €400 a night for a three- or four-bedroom villa, it’s a great option if you are plan to visit the area to golf with friends.

A more budget friend hotel called Lavida is also available on the property. The three-star hotel which has 50 rooms is designed for golfers who want to spend all their time on the two courses. It also has its own pool and an Italian restaurant and has a more laid back atmosphere.

The grounds of PGA Catalunya are also home to two football fields recently used by the Irish soccer team for training. The Girona team also practice here.

The compound also has an organic garden (which supplies the shop and restaurants) and a five-hectare vineyard which last year produced 4,000 red and white Camiral wines.

If you are looking for a short break in the sun and don’t want to travel too far this hotel is ideal as a weekend break. The airport is small and you can be in your room 20 minutes after you land as it’s just six kilometres away.

The beaches of Costa Brava can be reached within a 20-minute drive, there are 20 Michelin star restaurants within 50km and the French border is about an hour’s drive.

From a girls’ spa weekend to a golf trip, or just a romantic weekend break. Hotel Camiral has a lot to offer.

Factbox: Prices depend on the season, type of room and conditions. Prices for Superior Deluxe Room (with free cancellation) are from 200€.
