La Manga Club resort in Murcia is widely regarded as the best sports and leisure resort in Europe. Maintaining this reputation for many years, the resort is now under pressure from increasing competition and has responded with a luxurious modern makeover.

Before La Manga Club opened in 1972, the Mar Menor was an undeveloped region of Murcia, inhabited predominantly by underprivileged miners and farmers. The introduction of the resort provided a scale of glamour and adulation the region had never before seen.

Fast forward 10 years and La Manga Club had become Europe’s top sports and leisure destination. Bjorn Borg and Gary Player both owned property within the resort; Seve Ballesteros was the touring golf pro and Manuel Santana ran the tennis club. La Manga Club was so revered that Spain’s King Felipe, then a young Prince, was also a regular visitor.

Once other sporting facilities were introduced, famous faces came flooding in from all directions. Premiership football teams used the resort for pre-season training and, in 1998, the England team stayed at La Manga Club while competing in the World Cup in France.

While maintaining its reputation as Europe’s best sports & leisure resort, after 40 years, the resort is now experiencing much stronger competition and has responded with a luxurious modern makeover.

La Manga Club has always been an upmarket development, but with the introduction of brand new property options across the resort, the level of luxury has been cranked up a notch. Select Resorts Properties are pleased to offer high specification properties within the Las Lomas community, plus land plots and beautiful construction opportunities in the Las Acacias, Las Buganvillas and Las Mimosas villages.

The Las Acacias village is an outstanding collection of 29 luxury off-plan villas with uniquely minimalistic white architecture. Construction is included in the price; so buyers can sit back, relax and let the developers deal with everything.

“For our international clientele, this is their second or third home and they have a high quality of life. They don’t want the hassle of building a house, they choose the plot, the view, the position and we’ll take care of the rest. We’ll do all the interior design too if they want and just hand over the key at the end.” said Elodie Casola, the resort’s marketing manager.

Las Acacias plots overlook the football pitches and the Mar Menor Lagoon and will feature beautiful landscaped gardens, private pools and parking.

Las Buganvillas property, La Manga Club ResortThe Buganvillas community, in the centre of the resort, is perfectly situated for residents to enjoy the resort’s tremendous facilities. Properties have a distinctive country club look and feel and will be finished with the highest quality fixtures and fittings.

The Las Mimosas Community offers the chance for buyers to build their own bespoke 2–4 bedroom villa, situated on a magnificent plot within the resort. Much like the Las Acacias and Buganvillas communities, villas within the Las Mimosas village will be of the highest standard and provide access to all of the La Manga Club’s tremendous facilities.

The facilities which have made La Manga Club such a popular sports & leisure destination include three golf courses, 28 tennis courts, 8 FIFA standard football pitches, a massive spa and fitness centre and a five start hotel, amongst many others! Residents have exclusive access to these facilities and benefit from a fantastic living environment which feels more like a small town than a resort.

With the introduction of the next generation of luxury property it seems clear that La Manga Club will continue to be the go-to destination for property buyers in Spain.
