Finca Cortesin is a spectacular independently-owned hotel, golf and spa resort set in the rolling hills between Marbella and Sotogrande, flanked by the Casares Mountains and with sweeping views of the Mediterranean coastline.
The resort was built and designed in the style of a classic Andalusian ‘finca’ by renowned architects Roger Torras and Ignacio Sierra. Built around two principle courtyards of palatial proportions, the hotel comprises 67 suites with lofty four-metre-high ceilings and ranging from an impressive 50m² to 180m² in size. Its fresh, yet grand design is inspired by traditional Spanish architecture and gives every area a big, bright and luxuriously spacious feel that is otherwise so rare in Europe.
Their 2,200m² Spa featuring senior therapists from Thailand, Bali, Sri Lanka and, of course, Spain, is home to thermal baths, a state-of-the-art fitness centre with personal trainers, a 25m heated indoor saltwater pool, three thermal areas, a Turkish bath and relaxation area and Spain’s first ‘Snow Cave’. There is also an ARANĪ Yoga & Meditation Centre, which offers expert treatments and a variety of different yoga practises, including traditional Hatha yoga, ‘Slow Flow’ and ‘Power’ Vinyāsa, Ashtanga, Yin Yoga and Kundalini, as well as meditation and mat-based Pilates sessions.
For sport lovers, there are tennis courts and also a magnificent 18-hole championship golf course, which was ranked as one of Spain’s finest by prestigious Golf Digest magazine.

The hotel’s 67 suites are divided into ‘Junior’, ‘Executive’ and ‘Pool’ categories, and there is also the top level ‘Cortesín Suite’ spanning 180m². Each suite is flooded with natural light, and has been elegantly and individually designed with thoughtful touches throughout. Bathrooms are finished in Travertine Italian marble with oversized bathtubs, walk-in rain showers, twin vanities and a separate WC. The majority of suites also benefit from their own private garden, balcony or terrace, with sweeping views of the Mediterranean Sea, of the golf course, beautiful gardens or rolling Andalusian mountains. A highly personal offering at Finca Cortesin is that all the items found in the suites – from furniture to soft furnishing and decorative accessories – can be purchased by guests to take home, to enhance their homes à la Finca after they depart.
