All prices are based on two people sharing a room and also feature complimentary use of Spa La Manga Club’s fitness centre, indoor pool, saunas and steam rooms.
Set across an area of 1,400 acres, La Manga Club’s extensive golf facilities include three 18-hole courses, a nine-hole academy course and extensive practice facilities.
In addition to golf, the resort – the official overseas training base of the Lawn Tennis Association – also boasts a 28-court tennis academy, a new High Performance Sports Centre and 2,000m² spa and fitness complex. It offers the choice of a five-star hotel, four-star serviced apartments and townhouses, and more than 20 bars and restaurants.
n Three, five and seven-night golf breaks are available to book at La Manga Club until March 31, 2017, with prices starting from only €285pp. Packages include golf on any of the resort’s 18-hole golf courses, bed-and-breakfast accommodation and use of Spa La Manga Club’s fitness centre, indoor pool, saunas and steam rooms.
