Take a step back from the daily grind and retreat into Spain’s unspoiled Andalucia region. Here, you can be one of the first to stay at the brand spanking new AMA Hotel Andalucia, which opened recently as a peaceful retreat in which to escape your daily routine.
Standing head and shoulders above your standard Spanish resort, this lovely haven is an oasis of good taste and well-being. Its signature décor is fresh and contemporary, with unmistakable Moorish influences. Luxurious rooms are crisp white spaces shot through with unusual art and warm throws. To really unwind, head to the amazing AMA Health Retreat: here you can indulge in some traditional spa pampering, or even go all out and explore the range of paramedical and medical treatments, as well as healing and revitalising programmes.
Gourmands will agree a holiday in Spain needs a large helping of fine dining, and the resort doesn’t disappoint. Al fresco dining is an option at each of the two restaurants, where you can tuck into dishes with Mediterranean, European and Asian influences. The cocktail lounge has an exclusive private club vibe, so make like a VIP and sip one of the delicious concoctions on offer, or enjoy the delicious wines the country is famed for.
The modern hotel rooms are spacious and comfortable, and have a private balcony with views over the garden and resort. The cool white décor is broken up by stylish lighting, colourful throws and quirky art pieces.
The newly opened AMA Health Retreat goes a step beyond the standard massage menu, acting as a relaxing haven that also offers a complete range of paramedical and medical treatments and services. You’ll find a choice of preventative, healing and revitalising programmes, and wellness treatments alongside a menu of soothing spa treatments.
The hotel has two restaurants, each with a lovely terrace. Leave the diet at home and head to Fandado bar & restaurant, which promises a varied menu of tasty Mediterranean and Asian dishes in a cosmopolitan setting. Its cocktail lounge has a private club feel, perfect for pre-dinner drinks. The elegant ¡Ostras! Restaurant serves tempting local and international dishes with an intriguing twist.
The hotel is just a half-hour walk to the southern coast of Spain. As well as some lovely beaches, the surrounding area of Costa de la Luz is packed with options for sports enthusiasts, including golf and kitesurfing.For a day out, Doñana National Park is an hour’s drive from the hotel and home to unique fauna and a variety of wildlife, from deer to wildcats. If you fancy ticking another country off your bucket list, cross the border into Portugal – the city of Faro is just 85 kilometres away.
How to Get There
We spent 6 nights in an apartment at Sentido AMA earlier this week. The apartment was really spacious and ideal for us and our 3 girls. The staff we encountered were exceptional. Elena checked us in and nothing was a problem and she remembered my name for
the entire stay! Lara .. the concierge was super- friendly and gave us some great tips on beaches! Jose Antonio in the restaurant was so friendly, professional and welcoming! Great hotel! Hope to be back!
We travelled the last week of the Easter holidays the weather unfortunately wasn't as warm as we hoped however the hotel is excellent. The food choice for breakfast lunch and dinner was varied and of good quality the staff were fantastic and our room was beautiful, lovely balcony with view of the pool. There is a free train to take you into the town and beach which is very nice. We hired a car for a couple of days and travelled to Sevilla and also to some more local towns.
We’re in an apartment which is spacious, comfortable and clean and the spa is nice but so far that’s the only good thing about this hotel.
The pool area is very crowded and the sun loungers are the most uncomfortable I’ve ever experienced (unless you want to hire a cabana style bed which is 30 Euro’s a day and away from the family pool!).
Food is majorly disappointing - very beige and little choice. Drinks are not included with dinner on half board (not even water).
All in all we’re pretty disappointed.
