Your most fashionable event at the new SO/Sotogrande !
70,000m2 of green areas with panoramic views of the Mediterranean, 152 rooms (36 suites), six restaurants, three swimming pools, 11 spa cabins with the latest treatments (cryotherapy, flotarium etc.) and a 2,000m2 gymnasium. The perfect discreet retreat for your events, with a wide range of experiences and sporting activities. The new 5-star SO/Sotogrande resort has just opened and conceals many unusual spaces. Would you have imagined organising a car presentation from a rooftop or welcoming your convention in a suite? At this resort your guests can fly and go with the flow…
Just like it is in an Andalusian farmhouse, modern and rebellious
The resort exudes the intimacy and glamour of Sotogrande, one of the most luxurious areas in Spain, surrounded by golf courses and offering an exceptional climate all year round (20-24ºC). As soon as you arrive, you can look out over the blue sea and breathe in the scent of flowers and local vegetation. Access is easy, with airports and international ports such as Málaga and Gibraltar nearby. And the most chic: Marbella and the luxurious Puerto Banús are only 30 minutes away, where everything sparkles and it’s impossible not to have fun.
It is built on the site of an old “cortijo” (or farmhouse) and retains the essence of the property, impregnated with local details in the gastronomy and decoration (the white walls, arches etc.) blending in with more rebellious and modern touches and offering up a wholly updated cortijo. Guests can feel the Andalusian tradition on their skin while they let themselves be carried away by the fun and an endless array of experiences.
There is a perfect colour-filled combination in every corner thanks to the collaboration with the designer Dolores Cortés. No fashionable detail has been missed at the hotel, and even the staff are dressed in floral shirts. You won’t find any plastic in the amenities and the technology employed guarantees an efficient use of light or water for irrigation, a commitment to sustainability and also to safety, with strict cleaning control.
A boundless range of spaces that leaves guests speechless
It features 152 rooms and 36 suites, sophisticated and inspired by the Mediterranean landscape, with access to private gardens and ceilings open to the sky. A surprising idea? Guests will feel right at home on the three floors of the suites that have been closed specifically for a chill-out private event combining the indoor space and the terrace with unbeatable views and a DJ to liven up the evening. The host can welcome the guests in his or her pyjamas! And for events for small groups, the outdoor auditorium surrounded by a pleasant green area is perfect for a presentation, a team meeting or a show, with the option of having any audiovisual element set up for you by our in-house suppliers.
And as for the swimming pools, how about three with panoramic views of the Mediterranean? In the water, shows with performers, lighting and music add a touch of wow factor to your event while guests enjoy a drinks reception or dinner on the casual sofas of HI SO, the restaurant beside the central pool. The furniture and set-ups can be recombined, so you can organise a pool party for a fashion show (as was done at the hotel’s opening) or an unforgettable product presentation. Even a car presentation on the landscaped roof of the wellness centre: there is space there for up to three cars.
The 500m2 conference room, a social room, can be reconfigured with panels, with the option of dividing the guests into several groups and of moving part of the event programme to the terrace, enjoying the panoramic views.
Four of its six restaurants can be used to fully organise your event, with different sizes depending on your needs (up to 747m2), always with the option of a terrace. Catering will no longer be a headache, with so much on offer: fine dining, a wood-fired grill, healthy proposals and coffee… And the star, of course, Andalusian gastronomy, with specialities such as the butter from Cordoba, the olive oil or the cold meats in the ham cellar of the Cortijo restaurant.
Each day can be a new adventure within the resort, inspiring the guests to enjoy a different space. And if you want to magnify your branding, a good option is to make it completely private and exclusive.
Relaxation, sport and unforgettable experiences
Relaxation is guaranteed in its spa area with 11 cabins, innovative treatments (cryotherapy, flotarium etc.), thermal and hydraulic pools, hamman/steam bath and a 2,000m2 gymnasium equipped with the latest technology and open 24 hours a day. Any group class from the wide range on offer, a yoga or meditation session will set your event apart and will show your guests that you take special care of them.
Within the complex is La Reserva, where you can play golf, tennis or paddle tennis. And if you prefer the prestigious game of polo, the Santa María club is famous for being the first to be built in the area. For the more adventurous there is an exclusive artificial beach area surrounded by 2,800m2 of fine white sand, for hiking, biking, horse riding or even scootering along the seaside. The sunset here is unforgettable: Can you imagine closing an event on a boat to Gibraltar with an aperitif on board and dolphins as special guests?
