First in: La Zambra Hotel Review, Spain

Who comes here?

Golfers: for direct access to two courses designed by Robert Trent Jones and 15 others within a 10-minute radius. Active types: this is not a health retreat as such, but you can piece one together from Body Sculpt and personal training sessions, Hatha classes and Sunrise Yoga workshops with the musician and Kundalini teacher Leticia, without forgetting the swimming pools, tennis courts, padel court and gym. The revelers – “but not in a crazy way”, says Kruissen, “more in the sense that there is no expected way to behave”. Also, sun worshipers.

For families

Absolutely. There are family rooms, as well as a dedicated family pool, kids’ menu, Baby Club, and Kids Club.


Concerted. The heat generated by the air conditioning is used to heat the water, and when the balcony doors are opened the air conditioning turns off. The lights are LED, the bathroom products are rechargeable and the electric cars and strollers can be recharged on site.

Accessibility for people with reduced mobility

Yes. There are six adapted rooms, and the three swimming pools and four restaurants/bars are accessible.

Is it worth it?

Yes, even if you don’t play golf. The light is out of this world, and La Zambra shows it beautifully.
