In Puglia, in the heart of Salento, you will find the Acaya Golf Resort & SPA, a charming 4-star resort just a few kilometers from Lecce, with a private beach, outdoor swimming pool, indoor swimming pool, restaurant, spa, wellness center and golf course. Ideal for beach holidays in Salento and to explore the beautiful beaches of Puglia, the resort is surrounded by nature. Next to the resort stands the natural oasis of the Cesine.
The beautiful 18-hole golf course is developed right next to the reserve. In the fairways stands an ancient and charming farmhouse dating back to the sixteenth century, home of the Club House. The rooms are elegant, comfortable, spacious and functional. The two outdoor pools and the extraordinary SPA, spread over 1,200 square meters, offer the right mix of water, freshness and well-being. The food is excellent, between Salento traditions and culinary innovation, with the food concept designed by the Michelin-starred chef Andrea Ribaldone.
Rooms & Suites. The Acaya Golf Resort & Spa has 97 rooms and suites, bright and elegant spaces, with a refined design and views over the garden, the countryside or the golf course. The rooms are divided between the ground floor with a lovely patio or garden; first floor with large terrace or balcony; and second floor with panoramic roof garden; they are all extremely spacious with living area and large bathroom. And they are comfortable with king size or twin “Sweet Dreams Experience” beds and soft mattresses. There is nothing better than to lie on four feather pillows and relax by choosing one of the many channels on the 32-inch flat screen TV.
A large work desk and high speed Wi-Fi will allow you to stay connected even in this peaceful haven away from the noise of the world. They are also ideal for business travellers if they need to work in the room.
Each room is equipped with two phones, tea and coffee-making facilities, safe and hairdryer. The bathrooms have a bathtub with shower.
Acaya Golf Club. In a natural setting and unique landscape for its beauty and integrity, in the midst of the maquis and ancient olive trees, you will find the Acaya Golf Resort & SPA course, designed by the renowned American firm Hurdzan and Fry. The 18-hole par 71 course is 6,192 metres long and offers a wide variety of design, constantly searching for perfect harmony between the natural features of the land and how the shots are to be played. It therefore requires players to use all fourteen irons and woods in their bag. The fairway grass, using a strong, dense American Bermuda grass seed, guarantees that the ball will float extremely well along the surface for shots that are always sharp and clean. On the sides, a mixture of four types of fescue ripples at natural height. For the greens, two varieties, A4 and A1, of agrostis stolonifera palustris have been used: a composition that has about twice the number of stems in the grass than conventional Penncross.
