Garden Hotels

The new concept of accommodation-destination

Being able to book a hotel in which you get everything you need to enjoy a few unrepeatable days, that is the goal that the Garden Hotel chain pursues with its new concept of destination hotels. A formula that combines the best of 4 star accommodation with the most interesting experiences of each holiday area.

The tourist sector in Spain has been and still is one of the world leaders. In fact, a lot of their chains are a driving force in a large number of the high level tourist areas over 5 continents, especially in the areas of the Caribbean and North Africa with luxury establishments in which you holiday in the true sense of the word.

Barcelo, Melia, Iberostar, NH … All of these have created a school both in their country and out of it and they continue doing so, raising the bar for what today is the design of accommodation for the 21st century.

But beyond that export of knowledge and good work, leaders of tourism in Spain have always known it is best to start by making your thoughts known and implementing the most innovative ideas at home. Now, with a view to conquering both the local tourist and the more experienced travelers, they are taking giant steps in the area of the conversion of mature destinations with a long history of tourism and significantly improving a hotel base rooted in the 70s.

Cases like the Playa de Palma (still in the throes of initial transformation) or the entire coast of Calvia, both in Mallorca, are clearly leading the way with a proposal for such complete and modern accommodation that it more than exceeds what they have been working towards.

Hotels with everything and more

This line of work names fewer international hotel chains but their work is no less important: Fergus Hotels in the area of Magaluf and Palmanova, or the Garden Hotels, in their Almeria hotels (such as Cabogata Mar Garden) and resorts in northern Mallorca (such as the Garden Holiday Village) are making multimillion investments in order to adapt their hotels to the changing needs of their guests.

The first results are already being felt: more customer loyalty, better brand valuation and a better overall accommodation experience and, by extension, a greater predilection for destinations where they are located. In this regard, government support will be undoubtedly vital, though today, with the little that has been done already in this respect, many advances have been made.

The new hotels that are growing up are hotels in which if you have a reservation you can enjoy a few days of total relaxation, with a high degree of personal care in both the facilities and services and a complementary offer that is directly linked to the hotel booking: discounts on business services in the area, on theme parks, on golf courses, on museums … ways to get the best from the destination with the help of the hotel, which offers the guests everything they need to do it, saving them a lot of effort and of course costs.

Another feature of these hotels is that you can enjoy the best of the destination without having to move from your resort accommodation: the cuisine is local, promoting authentic traditions and making a clear commitment to the production of local food and ecology. Additionally they work to offer sporting experiences and innovative entertainment within the resort accommodation: aerobics and dance classes, water games, some hotels have children’s pool areas like authentic water-parks-, theater and live music, visits and guided tours, workshops and shops for cyclists, sailing schools…

Personal service

All seasoned with the finishing touch of an increasingly professional and personalized service. The hotel teams are no longer mere amateurs: the demand in the sector is high and professionalism is indispensable. Chefs, waiters, reception staff and even cleaning services are increasingly valued and therefore a key part of the basic experience that each guest has when they stay at a hotel.

The close teamwork and friendliness of the hotel staff is also vital and, in fact, if you Google sites that offer reviews such as Tripadvisor you can easily see that these qualities are appreciated more every day.
