ALICANTE, Spain (July 19, 2021) – The 10th anniversary of Las Colinas Golf & Country Club is shaping up to be a year to remember, with the award-winning Spanish resort ready to unveil multiple new and improved five-star facilities to celebrate the landmark.
The impressive additions at the Costa Blanca venue include two new and unique dining experiences, a stylishly renovated beach club and an enhanced golf course – already a four-time winner of “Spain’s Best Golf Course” at the World Golf Awards – with extra emphasis on sustainability.
Under the guidance of the resort’s new executive chef Alfonso Lillo and building on the immediate success of the Italian restaurant il Palco, which has become a firm favorite with members and visitors since opening in 2020, unikrestaurant – which is located within the golf clubhouse – now serves fine international cuisine with a Mediterranean influence and locally-sourced ingredients to satisfy different tastes while the new umawarestaurant offers guests a new dining concept that fuses Nikkei cuisine with the best Mediterranean produce.
Visitors to Las Colinas’ popular Beach Club are also in for a treat this summer, with the venue being rebranded as ‘WOW Beach’ and set to unveil a stylish new look and upgraded gastronomic offering in June, while golfers using the resort’s acclaimed 18-hole championship course will also enjoy an enhanced experience following a course redesign to increase sustainability.
Working in association with Golf Environment Organization’s OnCourse program, the changes will not only reduce the amount of water, fertilizer and maintenance needed but also create new natural wildlife habitats for animals that live on the course to thrive.
Las Colinas is set to celebrate its 10th anniversary with a calendar of commemorative events from now until the autumn, with property owners, golf members and resort guests all invited to take part.
