Golfers can now enjoy a complete five-star experience by playing the exclusive Real Club de Golf El Prat while staying in The Serras after the two agreed a fantastic stay-and-play golf package.
One of the oldest golf clubs in Spain, El Prat, a ten-time host of the Spanish Open boasting 45 holes over five Greg Norman-designed courses, is steeped in history and remains one of only a small number of clubs to have been granted royal status by King Alfonso XIII.
It was recently named one of the 125 Platinum Clubs of the World – Five-star Private Club – after attaining a standard of excellence by an international panel of experts, historians and connoisseurs in a confidential ballot, as well as being granted the Golden Plaque of the Royal Order of Sporting Merit.
The world-renowned course is the perfect partner for The Serras, Barcelona’s most luxurious boutique hotel, which was Pablo Picasso’s first studio when he was just 15-years-old.
Packages throughout the year to stay at The Serras on a bed and breakfast basis, including one green fee at Real Club de Golf El Prat with shared buggy, costs just €225 per person per night for a shared room.
Marcello Della Vecchia, director of sales and marketing at El Prat, said: “Real Club de Golf El Prat has long been regarded as a first-class golf venue thanks to its world-class courses, state-of-the-art practice facilities and clubhouse and superb location near the wonderful city of Barcelona.
“And this tie-up with The Serras hotel will further enhance the experience for visitors. The Serras is the finest boutique hotel in Barcelona, offering the perfect setting within easy reach of Real Club de Golf El Prat, the city centre and all its sights, as well as the airport, which benefits from excellent travel links from across Europe both in terms of frequency and cost.”
Situated on the waterfront in the Ciutat Vella district, just eight miles from Barcelona airport and a short walk to all the city’s major attractions, the five-star Serras is the perfect base to unwind after a round of golf.
The luxury hotel, which has just undergone a €125m refurbishment, boasts a rooftop pool with panoramic views of the Mediterranean Sea, a modern Catalan restaurant by leading chef Marc Gassons, who has earned a Michelin star for his creations, and a stylish, yet intimate, cocktail bar and lounge.
