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
I am just back from a 5 day trip to this hotel with my 21 year old daughter. The whole complex is spotlessly clean, staff are incredibly helpful and the food is amazing. I would definitely return there. There are two swimming pools and a kids pool and plenty of space and sun loungers for everyone. There are 2 parts to the town, the new and old and i would highly recommend the old area, particularly if you want to do some shopping. We didnt go far as the hotel was so welcoming and comfortable. We had a 2 bedroomed apartment which was really spacious, the kitchen was well equipped and we even had a utility room with a washing machine and ironing board. There is a cute little train which goes to the beach and town during the day and evening. Its very modern, and classy hotel.
Look forward to revisiting soon, thanks Pau
We had a lovely 5 day stay in one of the two bed apartments. The apartment was modern, spacious, comfortable and exceptionally clean. The complex is large with ample sun loungers and 2 pools. The smaller pool was perfect for an early morning swim before the crowds arrived.
Cannot commend the staff enough. Everyone we came across was polite and welcoming - especially Adrian, Rosa and Lara the concierge!!! There were organized
activities every day including water polo
and a core class in the gym. The gym was small but well set up with modern equipment.
The food was as you would expect in an all-inclusive resort. Varied fresh salads, meats and cheeses. The hot dinner options were mixed however, on our final evening we had lovely fresh cod and potatoes. It’s difficult to cater for a large amount of people but I think they do a decent job!
There is a free bus service to take you to town and the beach on the hour everyday with sun loungers for guests on the beach free of charge, although the walk to or from takes approx. 15 mins and is easily walkable in any weather.
There are excellent tapas options in the old town of La Antilla namely ‘Azalea’ which I would highly recommend. Worth noting that the bars and restaurants in the new town Islantilla are considerably more expensive and we were recommended to try the old town for a more authentic experience.
Overall a great experience and would stay again with friends or family.
If you're looking for a luxurious, calm stay in a beautiful environment, go here. We stayed in a big appartement which has everything you need, including good beds and a nice balcony. The cleaning staff is thorough and friendly. The hotelstaff is very friendly, open and helpful. Breakfast, lunch, dinner: all very good and with personal attention from the staff. The food is of a good quality, the salads are fresh and delicious. And then the spa facilities: beautiful! Sauna's, pool, gym, massage and relaxing area's, hammam, dressingrooms, they all are well facilitated and looking very well taken care of. Tasteful interior everywhere and the staff is, again, friendly and helpful. We had a massage and a hammamtreatment by Soufiane which were absolutely fantastic. He knows what he is doing and is a very able and experienced professional. After the treatments you feel relaxed and reloaded. The outside facilities, pool and relaxing areas are beautiful. The gardens are well taken care of. You feel very welcome as a guest. We had a very good time and I would recommed everybody to go to Ama.
One suggestion: I would recommend that the Hydromassagepool is kept free from children, as I believe that that's an area for relaxation and not for playing, jumping kids. There lies a good task for the lifeguards to obtain that area for adults only.
Wonderfull moment at the Spa, Big thanks to Sofiane who made massage, help me to be zen , provided all explanation about the Spa in French when I arrived, and also provided explanations about the massage he did, a very professional team, Merci, Gracias, thanks
Stayed here for a week in June and enjoyed it. The spa facilities on the lower level is great. The restaurants are not fantastic food-wise, but the staff are lovely.
You need to pay an extra €5 per day for the Infrared Sauna & Finnish Sauna facilites but otherwise can have full use of steam room, jacuzzi & pool.
The rooms are great, spacious but you pay extra for coffee, Nespresso pods etc.
You will have a wall-mounted soap dispenser in shower & another by sink so make sure to bring shampoo etc.
There is a little complimentary train bringing guests in and out of Islantilla village between 10-5pm daily, hourly. It would be good if the train ran later so you could go into town for dinner and its a 2km walk back to hotel on roads without footpaths.
All in all, a great little spot. If they sort out the food in restaurants i would go back. Fantastic helpful staff!
