For over six decades, families have returned again and again to bask in the local warmth and familiarity among a community of likeminded people. This is where they spend their long summer days in peace, tranquillity and understated luxury.

The enviable sports facilities
The team at La Reserva Club has been working hard to develop a community with the facilities to continue its legacy as one of the most fashionable, discrete and exclusive destinations on the continent. It includes a 18-hole championship golf course, designed by Cabell B Robinson, which has been awarded for its incredible service and placed at number 36 in Golf World Magazine’s Top 100 Resorts in Continental Europe Rankings. We have a modern racquet club with clay tennis courts and padel courts, as well as a great clubhouse with restaurant and pro shop. The area is famous for its polo and offers excellent facilities to enjoy this wonderful sport, as well as a riding school at La Reserva Club. The marina is heaven for sailors and there are several sailing schools teaching children and adults how to get the most from life at sea. Sotogrande also boasts a rugby club and is home to Spain’s best golf courses Valderrama (ranked 1st) and Real Sotogrande (ranked 3rd).
You’re never far from the beach
Sotogrande’s coastline is stunning, with a wonderful marina and beautiful wide sandy beaches with hip beach bars, it’s a great place to hang out on a summer’s day. But that wasn’t enough for the ambitious Sotogrande team, they wanted to add the popular beach lifestyle to the offering for residents in the hills of Sotogrande too and in 2018 The Beach was opened up at La Reserva Club.
This ambitious project has brought the beach to the mountains by creating a sandy bottomed lagoon and beach club in the rolling hills of Sotogrande. It is proving popular with residents and tourists alike and has already received a number of awards.
The continued improvements being made to Sotogrande
Throughout Sotogrande, there is a renewed sense of dynamism and purpose for this magnificent community. The Almenara Hotel is under renovation and set to reopen in Spring 2021 under the SO/HOTELS & RESORTS brand to present an exhilarating combination of social spaces, exclusive experiences and distinctive “Just Say SO” services that celebrate Mediterranean culture.
Topiol concludes, “It is an incredibly exciting time for us. Our vision for La Reserva Club is now coming to fruition and it promises to charm the most discerning of visitors with its unrivalled qualities of barefoot luxury, incredible scenery, world-class facilities and entertainment.”
