A spa escape is, for many people, out of reach due to the expense. Let’s face it. A week in a spa hotel or retreat is not cheap. Enter: AMA Andalusia Health Resort, which is an exciting project in Andalucia which offers easy accessibility from both Faro and Seville airports, and most importantly – affordability with nightly rates from 100€. It offers new opportunities for guest seeking a health resort in Andalusia.
This new 42 bedroom property (that also includes 26 luxury apartments and 50 standard apartments in its portfolio), is opening its doors after an extensive multimillion refurbishment. AMA – a word which references both love and Mother Nature – is offering a pioneering spa and medical programme, haute cuisine prepared by an ex-Elbulli chef and impeccable rooms, whilst tucked away as a hidden gem in the quiet beach town of Islantilla, bordering Portugal. Sounds idyllic.
