Vacation Marbella enters golf market as popularity soars

Apartment3

Vacation Marbella, the well-established luxury accommodation rental company, is enjoying a huge rise in bookings – and that is expected to grow even further as it looks
to focus on the golf market.

Marbella is one of Europe’s most popular destinations among Brits seeking all-year round sunshine, but with a growing portfolio of high-end apartments, it is focusing more on golfers and families.

Situated in the Andalucía region, Marbella saw more than 530,000 people visit for golf tourism in 2016 – a staggering rise of 25% over the last five years. That figure is expected to grow further over the next 18 months.

With an average of 320 sunny days a year and more than 30 golf courses in the Costa del Sol region and 15 alone in Marbella, the area is a paradise for golfers.

Borja Rodriguez, joint owner of Vacation Marbella, said: “Marbella may already be well known to UK visitors as a holiday destination with the glamorous reputation boasting places like Puerto Banus, but there is so much more to this beautiful area of Spain that people may not be so aware of.

“The Costa del Sol is also known as the Costa del Golf with some of the finest golf courses anywhere in the world that can be experienced in a wonderful climate with lots of sun.

“But there is also so much to do and see in the Marbella region with fantastic restaurants serving delicious locally-sourced food, a host of activities to do such as fishing, boating, cycling or go-karting.

“We believe we can offer families and golfers the perfect holiday, whether they want an active break or simply relax by the beach.”

The family-run business enjoys great prominence in the Costa del Sol region thanks to its commitment to providing tailor-made packages that cater for every need, such as organising green fees, car rentals, airport transfers and baby-sitting services.

The group has also appointed the Azalea Group, a media communications company, to help strengthen its position as one of the best holiday rental providers.
