DoubleTree by Hilton La Torre Opens in Murcia

11.26am 31st January 2019 - Travel

La Torre Golf & Spa Resort in Spain re-opened today [Jan 31] under the ownership of DoubleTree by Hilton.

The 133-room property, which is located less than 30 minutes from the city of Murcia, boasts its own Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course. It was formerly called the Intercontinental, but is now one of four hotels owned by DoubleTree by Hilton in Spain. La Torre will be managed by T3 Hospitality Management.

Boasting lake-front views and four restaurants, La Torre is surrounded by 20 of Spain’s best golf courses, a range of tapas bars and restaurants, and a convention centre.

Murcia is emerging as one of Spain’s leading leisure destinations as the number of travellers continues to increase. Receiving over 600,000 visitors last year, tourism in the region is set to rise with the completion of Murcia International Airport this year, making it more accessible than ever.

“We are delighted to bring the DoubleTree by Hilton experience to Murcia,” said Adrian Padina, the hotel’s general manager. “Guests will receive our signature warm welcome, which starts with our famous DoubleTree by Hilton chocolate chip cookie, to feel at home with us in the heart of one of Spain’s best kept secrets. Rich in history, culture and some of the best tapas bars and restaurants, the city offers travellers an indulgent break. After exploring the city, guests can take comfort in our spacious rooms and enjoy our menu, using the freshest, locally sourced products.”
