La Torre Golf & Spa Resort opens in Murcia

New 133-room DoubleTree hotel features lake-front views, a ballroom for 700 delegates and four restaurants.

The DoubleTree La Torre Golf & Spa Resort has opened near Murcia, Spain.

The 133-room property is located less than 30 minutes from the city of Murcia, surrounded by 20 golf courses, a range of tapas bars and restaurants, and a convention centre.

With 1,000 sqm of meeting space, the hotel’s events offering includes a ballroom that has capacity for up to 700 people, a conference centre and a terrace area.

During downtime, guests can take advantage of a spa, complete with a sauna, steam bath and ice fountain. They can also swim in the indoor pool or re-energise in the 24-hour fitness centre.

Murcia is home to impressive architectural sites, including the Cathedral at Cardenal Belluga Plaza and the Real Casino de Murcia. In addition, the renowned beaches of Mar Menor are only a short distance from the resort, and visitors can take advantage of Europe’s largest lagoon on one of the region’s 300 days of sunshine a year.

Four restaurants are located on-site. Al Fresco, located by the pool, serves light snack made with Mediterranean ingredients. Overlooking the lake and La Torre Golf Course is Bar La Vinoteca, offering a wide range of tapas. Restaurante La Vinoteca features a fine dining menu with fresh locally sourced ingredients.
