Finca Cortesin Hotel, Golf and Spa in Southern Spain Becomes Distinguished
International Hotels, Residences and Resorts’ Newest Member

Rockville, Maryland, January 27th , 2009 – Distinguished International® Hotels, Residences and Resorts is pleased to welcome Javier Revirego, Hotel Manager and his team at the Finca Cortesin Hotel, Golf and Spa on the Costa del Sol of southern Spain to the Distinguished® portfolio of international properties.

Set between Sotogrande and Marbella with the Casares Mountains on one side and the Mediterranean on the other, this brand new deluxe 5-star boutique hotel and resort which opened its doors in October 2008, boasts 67 lavishly appointed suites along with meeting and banquet facilities that can accommodate up to 300 guests.

Built in the traditional Andalucian architectural style of red clay roofs and pristine white washed façade complemented by a shopping complex, an impressive inner courtyard and fountain, which is serviced by the same caretakers as the famed Alhambra, it is already being recognised as one of the most luxurious hotels of the Costa del Sol.

The championship golf course, a Cabell Robinson signature design with lessons offered by the Jack Nicklaus Academy, has been designated Home to the Volvo World Match Play Championship starting in 2009. Measuring 7000 meters in length it is one of the longest courses in Europe.

The spa and gym facilities are generous and modern, featuring state-of-the-art equipment, 3 pools, massage and skin care treatments using exclusive high end European product lines, a Turkish hammam and the only snow cave in all of Spain.

The hotel also offers 3 restaurants with the acclaimed Dutch and Michelin star pedigree chef Schilo Van Coeverden at the helm, and his unique culinary flair of blending Asian, Arabian and Mediterranean influences that has made him so famous. 

“We are very proud of what has been created here at Finca Cortesin,” Javier Revirego, General Manager. “Whether you are a golf enthusiast, in search of the highest standards of wellness treatments or simply want to enjoy a relaxing and pampering holiday in our magnificent surroundings, every detail has been thoroughly thought through to provide the ultimate experience. We are excited to have the luxury traveler discover our resort. They won’t be disappointed!”

“The Costa del Sol is known for the high standards of their resorts,” explains Bill Burruss, president of Distinguished International® “So it is no small feat to have created such a world-class facility that is already being acclaimed as one of the most luxurious. Yet, what was key for us to welcome Finca Cortesin as a Distinguished® member, is their impeccable and personable service: fresh fruit in the room, flight confirmation by the concierge, to name but a few. A real gem that the Distinguished® traveler will enjoy discovering for years to come.”
