Grand Opening: A New Level of Luxury from The Private Andalucían Hideaway

March 6, 2014 Hotel Openings No Comments Email Email

Luxurious private rental estate Cortijo El Carligto announces the grand opening of a companion property, The Hunting Lodge, on its secluded ten acre hilltop in eastern Malaga Province.

458199Since welcoming singer George Michael upon opening in 2010, El Carligto has increased it’s A-list appeal with an expansive offering of five-star services and bespoke experiential packages. The opening of The Hunting Lodge in June, 2014, heralds a new level of private luxury for larger groups and special events.

The Hunting Lodge features at least the same level of comfort and luxury as El Carligto with all the modern conveniences, yet the new property includes a few deluxe touches such as a heated swimming pool and open air cinema. All of the first class service offerings are also available at The Hunting Lodge, including Michelin rated private chef service, spa and beauty treatments, personal concierge, and immersive culinary and cultural outings capturing the best of Andalucía.

458202With three consecutive Condé Nast Traveler Gold List nominations for El Carligto, owner Alan Hazel looks forward to applying the winning formula to the expanded estate with the addition of The Hunting Lodge. Mr Hazel attributes the success to the fact that “El Carligto defies categorization as simply a villa rental, offering all of the comfort, services and luxury of a five star hotel, but with a level of privacy and seclusion not possible at a hotel.” That El Carligto is the only private rental nominated in the hotels category would seem to support the assertion and reaffirms the rising trend for private rentals over hotels with luxury travellers.

458208Having hosted their first small wedding ceremony at El Carligto in 2013, the owners see potential for growth in hosting similar, though larger events and reunions now that capacity has increased. They are already busy planning an event for clients to host a catered celebration for 150 guests on site this summer.

Rentals of the entire estate begin at €8000 per week for up to fourteen guests, while a fully hosted stay, including daily private chef, housekeeping and concierge begins at €13,380 per week. Cortijo El Carligto and The Hunting Lodge are also available to rent separately.
