The May issue of Traveler calls itself the "ultimate insider's guide to the newest and hottest hotels opened all over the world in the past year," so it is no surprise that Finca Cortesin in Andalusia was included. The 2009 Hot List featured 140 new hotels and resorts, in which Finca Cortesín earned the distinction of being one of four properties in Spain to be named. All of the selections were judged on design, service, and amenities; and only results that transcended industry standards were chosen. 

As home of the PGA European Tour's Volvo Match Play Championship, the exciting new resort welcomes the honor and looks forward to its first complete year. This latest distinction confirms that Finca Cortesín is not only a top resort destination in the Costa Del Sol, but all of Europe.
