Finca Cortesin offers Michelin star Japanese experience
Golfers with a taste for the finer things in life can mix world-class golf with Michelin-starred Japanese dining at the deluxe Finca Cortesin Hotel, Golf & Spa this spring.
Guests can enjoy a mouth-watering selection of breaks at the exclusive resort in Andalucia, southern Spain, including its eye-catching ‘Play & Dine Experience’, offering golfers the chance to combine a round on its award-winning golf course with dinner in its signature restaurant Kabuki Raw.
Available to book throughout 2017 and costing €325 (approx £282) per person, golfers will receive a welcome gift on arrival before enjoying 18 holes on Finca Cortesin’s acclaimed championship layout, a three-time host of the Volvo Match Play Championship.
Having worked up an appetite on the course, players can then take the weight off their feet and experience a sumptuous tasting menu dinner (including wine cellar) at Kabuki Raw, which has held one Michelin star since 2015.
Kabuki Raw is managed and run by Finca Cortesin with the expert guidance of the Kabuki Group, a world leader in Japanese cooking. Its unique setting allows guests to watch head chef, Spaniard Luis Olarra, at work in the kitchen, creating an array of emblematic dishes specifically for Finca Cortesin using only the highest-quality produce.
Opened in March 2009 and set across a vast 532-acre estate, Finca Cortesin is regarded among Europe’s most exclusive modern golf and lifestyle destination resorts, and was recently named as the ‘Best Golf Resort in Europe’ by users of the respected website Leadingcourses.com.
The resort’s acclaimed championship course – which was designed by world-renowned architect Cabell Robinson – has hosted numerous high-profile tournaments including the Volvo World Match Play Championship in 2009, 2011 and 2012, while complementing the pat-72 layout are outstanding practice facilities including a state-of-the-art Jack Nicklaus Golf Academy.
Located in the rolling hills of southern Spain between Marbella and Sotogrande, with the Mediterranean to one side and the tranquil Casares Mountains to the other, Finca Cortesin’s other world-class facilities include an elegant 67-suite hotel, Hotel Cortesin, a 6,000sqm Beach Club and an award-winning spa featuring Spain’s only snow cave, with bespoke treatments by French beauty brand Boilogique Recherche.
In addition to Kabuki Raw, Hotel Cortesin offers the choice of four restaurants including El Jardin de Lutz, serving authentic Spanish cuisine. The development also features an exclusive collection of villas which are available for purchase or rental.
