Finca Cortesín Hotel, Golf & Spa is home to five eateries, from the smart Michelin-starred signature Japanese restaurant to laidback snacks at the Beach Club.
El Jardin de Lutz –Whether you dine outside on the terrace or indoors amid palm-frond wallpaper, you’ll be eating from the garden of the Mediterranean. Chef Lutz Bösing takes the local fruits of both land and sea and gives a modern twist to traditional Spanish classics.
Kabuki Raw – Treat yourself to the tasting menu at the hotel’s Michelin-starred signature restaurant, where the delicacy of Japanese cuisine meets the earthy ingredients of Spain. Dress up to dine in this renowned eatery, where you’ll be able to see Chef Luis Olarra at work in the open kitchen from your red-lacquered chair.
Don Giovanni – Sicilian Chef Andrea Tumbarello takes Italian cooking traditions that are centuries old and adds a little innovation. Dine on the classics including pasta and pizza, before finishing up with something sinful, like mandarin sorbet with Cointreau.
The Blue Bar – Sink into the sumptuous velvet sofas of the Blue Bar and sample a cocktail or two. Tapas, sandwiches, and other light snacks can be served here, on the patio, or in the Moroccan and Indian relaxed lounges.
Beach Club – The easy, breezy eatery at Finca Cortesín’s Beach Club serves seafood, salads, and light dishes with stunning sea views over the infinity pool and Bahía de Casares beach, less than a mile from the main hotel.
If golf is your game, you’ll be set for the duration of your vacation on the hotel’s remarkable 18-hole, championship course. Otherwise, there are four swimming pools, tennis and paddle tennis courts, and an Asian-influenced spa offering boundless pampering. Head to the beach for water-based activities including sailing, fishing, and windsurfing, or head out into the rugged Andalusian countryside for mountain biking, horse riding, and – in winter – skiing.
