Vacation Marbella, a well-established luxury accommodation rental company, is enjoying a huge rise in bookings – and that is expected to grow even further as it looks to focus on the golf market.
Marbella is one of Europe’s most popular destinations among Brits seeking all-year round sunshine, but with a growing portfolio of high-end apartments, it is focusing more on golfers and families.
And Vacation Marbella has appointed leading marcomms specialist the Azalea Group to strengthen its standing as one of the best holiday rental providers.
The family-run business enjoys great prominence in the Costa del Sol region thanks to its commitment to providing tailor-made packages that cater for every need, such as organising green fees, car rentals, fishing charters, airport transfers and baby-sitting services.
And with an average of 320 sunny days a year and more than 30 golf courses in the Costa del Sol region and 15 alone in Marbella, the area is a paradise for golfers.
Borja Rodriguez, joint owner of Vacation Marbella, who is originally from the town, said: “Marbella may already be well known to UK visitors as a holiday destination with the glamorous reputation boasting places like Puerto Banus, but there is so much more to this beautiful area of Spain that people may not be so aware of.
“The Costa del Sol is also known as the Costa del Golf with some of the finest golf courses anywhere in the world that can be experienced in a wonderful climate with lots of sun.
“There are sandy beaches to enjoy, and while there is a fantastic nightlife to enjoy at a host of bustling modern bars, we can also very proud of the many charming and traditional picturesque villages dotted around this stunning area.
“But there is also so much to do and see in the Marbella region with fantastic restaurants serving delicious locally-sourced food, a host of activities to do such as fishing, boating, cycling or Go Karting. We believe we can offer families and golfers the perfect holiday, whether they want an active break or simply relax by the beach.”
Marbella is situated in the Andalucia region, which saw more than 530,000 people visit for golf tourism in 2016 – a staggering rise of 25 per cent over the last five years. And that figure is expected to grow further over the next 18 months.
