Located just one mile from the Mediterranean Sea near the stylish area of Sotogrande, Finca Cortesin enjoys a prime location, situated 25 minutes from Gibraltar, 50 minutes from Málaga Airport, and an hour from Jerez. A serene property in the scenic town of Casares, Málaga, it spans an impressive area with 23,000 square meters dedicated to meticulously landscaped gardens and 22,000 square meters of architectural space. The resort boasts 67 luxuriously furnished rooms and 8 private villas, all designed to provide guests with an exclusive and private experience.

The architecture of Finca Cortesin, designed by the acclaimed Roger Torras and Ignacio Sierra, echoes the classic style of an Andalusian ‘finca’ or rural estate. The design revolves around two main courtyards of grand proportions, hosting 67 suites that feature lofty ceilings up to four meters and sizes ranging from 538 to 1938 square feet. The design brings a fresh and expansive feel that draws inspiration from traditional Spanish elements, enhanced by the landscape architect Gerald Huggan and interior design by Ana and Cristina Calderón for the suites, spa, and beach club. The public areas were designed by Duarte Pinto Coelho, who chose a range of antiques and period furniture.

The accommodations include Junior Suites, Executive Suites, Pool Suites, and the expansive Cortesin Suite, each designed with unique features and luxurious amenities. These range from private gardens and terraces with views of the sea, golf course, or mountains, to spacious living areas with sophisticated décor.

The dining venues at the resort offer a variety of culinary experiences. El Jardin de Lutz specializes in traditional Spanish dishes, Kabuki Raw blends Japanese techniques with Mediterranean flavours, and Don Giovanni presents innovative Italian cuisine. The Beach Club and Pool 35 BBQ provide relaxed settings for enjoying meals by the water.
