This week’s blog is a guide to some of the most luxurious golf resorts that can be found across the globe. All seven of these hotels offer an unbeatably lavish stay with five-class service and excellent facilities, guaranteeing an unforgettable golf escape. If your budget permits, a stay in any one of these resorts would be a fantastic experience that would be sorely missed by settling for just your average hotel. All seven of these hotels are five-star in every aspect, making them worth every penny.

First up is the Westin Puntacana Resort and Club, a fantastic five-star hotel located on the stunning sands of the Dominican Republic. This resort offers its guests the perfect combination of sun, sea, golf, and above all else, luxury. Guests will find themselves just a stone’s throw away from the beautiful white sands and clear waters that the Dominican Republic is known so well for. The resort owns a private three-mile stretch of coastline along the beach, where it offers many sporting activities including scuba diving and paddleboarding. All of the rooms and suites at the Westin Puntacana Resort and Club are very open with modern décor, offering guests an unbeatably comfortable stay. Most of the rooms take advantage of the resort’s stunning coastal setting with beautiful sea views, and some of the rooms even have direct beach access. The luxury does not stop at the guest rooms; the resort is home to a fantastic range of leisure facilities to keep each and every guest entertained when they are taking a break from challenging the fairways at the local La Cana and Corales golf courses. To totally relax and indulge in the five-star experience, guests can head to the Six Senses Spa for a well-deserved massage or facial. To finish off an unforgettable day exploring the Caribbean’s most stunning beaches, guests can enjoy a fantastic meal in one of the hotel’s eight restaurants. The resort offers guests an excellent range of all-inclusive accommodation packages, meaning guests can make the most out of the resort’s fantastic restaurant options without worrying about the price tag at the end of it.

The Palacio Estoril Hotel Golf and Spa is undoubtedly one of the most luxurious resorts we offer in Portugal, with its stunning classic Portuguese architecture and unbeatable location situated just moments away from Estoril’s main beach. Despite its opening way back in the 1930s, the Palacio Estoril Hotel Golf and Spa has still maintained its authentic charm and character in its décor and style. A stay here would not just be a fantastic option for your next holiday in Portugal because of its excellent service and facilities, but also because the hotel is located in easy reach of the Golf do Estoril, one of the most sought-after golf courses in the Lisbon region. The Golf do Estoril is widely considered to be among some of the most prestigious golf courses in Portugal, and conveniently for all guests at the Palacio Estoril Hotel Golf and Spa, this outstanding golf course is less than a five-minute drive away. The Palacio Estoril Hotel Golf and Spa proved itself to be James Bond worthy in 1969 when it featured heavily in many of the scenes in the sixth instalment, many of which were set around the hotel’s stunning pool area. The hotel truly has something for all guests, whether they are looking for a relaxing yoga session, an indulgent massage, or a swim in the large outdoor swimming pool. If guests want to explore the local surrounding area, the centre of Estoril is literally on their doorstep. The hotel offers its guests two fantastic restaurants and a bar, but if guests are looking to travel further afield, then there is a huge range of bars and restaurants just a few steps away from the hotel.

Another fantastic option for a luxury golf holiday by the beach is the five-star Westin Resort Costa Navarino. This resort is not only great for a golf break, but it also caters fantastically for families so that everyone can make the most of their holiday. Guests will find themselves in the perfect position to make the most out of some of Greece’s most stunning beaches, and of course, its capitating history. The resort is set on top of the beautiful Dunes Beach, and just an hour and a half away from the iconic Ancient Olympia site. If guests can manage to tear themselves away from the neighbouring beach and local historic attractions, then they can also enjoy an unforgettable round of golf on either the Dunes or the Bay golf courses. The guest rooms at the Westin Resort Costa Navarino are set in villas, and some of them even have their own infinity swimming pool. All of the accommodation here are fully equipped with all of the essentials to ensure that guests have an unbeatably luxurious stay. The resort offers guests endless opportunities to fill their days, aside from the two neighbouring golf courses, the Dunes and the Bay golf courses. Whether guests want to make the most out of the resort’s beach location with a range of water sports or spend their day in the recreational centre for a fun game of ten-pin bowling, volleyball, or badminton. Guests are also well and truly spoilt for choice with the resort’s huge range of bars and restaurants; whatever they fancy for dinner, they are sure to be accommodated for with an impressive eleven restaurants.

The Westin brand does not fail to disappoint yet again at the Westin Abu Dhabi Golf Resort and Spa. This resort offers guests the best of both worlds as they are tucked away in a resort away from all the hustle and bustle of the busy tourist areas in Abu Dhabi, but many of the area’s key attractions are just a short drive away. Two of the area’s most popular attractions, Ferrari World and the Sheikh Zayed Mosque, are conveniently located just a fifteen minute drive away, or if guests are looking to make the most out of the guaranteed sunshine, then Abu Dhabi’s best beach, the Corniche, is located just a twenty minute drive away. Not only is the resort’s location a major selling point due to its close proximity to some of the area’s key attractions, but the resort is also located just twenty minutes away from both the Abu Dhabi Golf Club, host to the HSBC Golf Championship, and the Yas Links golf course. The service at the Westin Abu Dhabi Golf Resort and Spa has said to be unmatched, and the standard of its facilities are set to follow. The resort’s main leisure facility is its spa which offers a huge range of treatments and special adults-only areas to ensure its guests are in the right position to take full advantage of the luxury the resort has to offer. Furthermore, only of the three outdoor swimming pools is strictly adults only, and guests can enjoy complimentary access to the exclusive Saadiyat Beach Club.

Yet another fantastic option for your next luxury golf holiday is the Hotel Las Madrigueras, located in Tenerife, one of the most popular golf holiday destinations on offer. Set just a ten-minute walk away from one of Tenerife’s stunning beaches and directly neighbouring the Golf Las Americas golf course, guests here are in the perfect position to have their best luxury golf break yet. Guests can benefit from the resort’s idyllic location away from the popular tourist spots in Tenerife so they can make the most out of the resort’s fantastic five-star facilities and the highly sought-after golf course located just next door. Furthermore, guests need not worry about a lack of dinner options with the hotel’s secluded location as the hotel is home to an award-winning restaurant which serves a varied a la carte menu every evening. Compared to many of the other luxury golf resorts, the Hotel Las Madrigueras offers a much more ‘intimate’ stay as there are only 44 guest rooms and just 13 suites. The hotel is also strictly adults only, meaning a peaceful and relaxing stay is guaranteed. All of the guest rooms here offer stunning views of the neighbouring Atlantic Ocean, the Las Americas golf course, and Tenerife’s small sister island, La Gomera. Even for a five-star hotel, the guest rooms here are particularly spacious with all of the essentials to ensure all guests have a fantastic stay. Tenerife benefits from a mild all-year round climate, so the hotel’s large outdoor swimming pool is always a popular spot to enjoy this.

Vilamoura is undoubtedly one of the most luxurious destinations in the Algarve, known for its world-class golf courses and its upmarket marina. A stay in Vilamoura is a luxurious experience in itself, let alone a stay in the Hilton Vilamoura As Cascatas Golf Resort and Spa. Here, guests will never find themselves short of things to do; the hotel runs a complimentary shuttle service to the nearby Falesia Beach in the summer season, plus the hotel lies just next to the Dom Pedro Pinhal golf course, widely considered to be among the best golf courses in the Algarve. With a fantastic range of leisure facilities, modern décor and spacious guest rooms, it comes as no surprise that the Hilton Vilamoura As Cascatas Golf Resort and Spa is widely considered to be a go-to option for a luxury golf holiday in Portugal. While the adults are challenging the fairways at the local golf courses, the resort’s children’s club can keep the little ones entertained so golfers never have to miss out. To fully relax and indulge in the five-star experience, guests can head to the 7Seven Spa, the largest spa facility in the whole of Portugal. Or alternatively, guests can make the most out of the almost guaranteed sunshine around one of the resort’s five outdoor swimming pools, all of which have different features, such as adults-only access or a faux beach setting. If guests would prefer a quiet night in and they do not fancy venturing into town for dinner, then the hotel is home to two a la carte restaurants. After a fantastic meal, guests can head down to the Beach Club for a well-deserved cocktail.

Last but not least is the five-star Fairplay Golf and Spa Resort, located in the heart of the Costa de la Luz. Guests here are truly in the perfect position to make the most out of the stunning views that Andalucía is known so well for. The resort offers an idyllic stay set in the rolling hills of Andalucía, with the well-known Fairplay Golf Club just next door. The Fairplay Golf Club was designed by Baron Paul Rolin who successfully created a fantastic golf course that can accommodate players of all skillsets and handicaps. With some technical holes, a beautiful landscape and superb facilities, it comes as no surprise that the Fairplay Golf Club is widely considered to be a must-play golf course on the Costa de la Luz Cadiz. If the neighbouring Fairplay Golf Club is not enough to keep guest preoccupied during their stay, then the resort is also home to a wide range of leisure facilities to keep each and every guest entertained. After a gruelling round of golf, guests can head to the Fairplay SPA for a well-deserved treatment, then head to the outdoor pool area to catch some rays. The resort was recently closed for a few years and only reopened in 2017 after completely renovating the guest rooms, so it is fair to say that they meet every standard for your next luxury golf holiday. Furthermore, the resort also opened with a brand new a la carte restaurant which offers al fresco dining on the sun terrace.
