Set in the Cabo de Gata Nature Reserve, Real Agua Amarga’s jaw-dropping surroundings are certainly a sight to behold. From the towering palms and verdant greenery, to the undulating hills on the horizon - the views here are spectacular. However, it’s not just the scenery that makes this Chic Retreat so aesthetically pleasing - step inside its whitewashed walls and you’ll find vibrant artwork, cosy furnishings and characterful terracotta floors.
Given the hotel’s countryside setting, you can expect some serious peace and quiet time here. Whether it’s lounging by the pool, a trip to the beach or simply taking in those beautiful vistas, this countryside getaway is the perfect spot to recharge your batteries.
Please note that this is an adult-only boutique hotel and therefore is only suitable for those 12 years and older.
Start your day with a great breakfast, which can be enjoyed on the terrace in fair weather. Come dinner time, the hotel restaurant serves up some delicious Mediterranean and International dishes, all of which are made using local produce where possible (it’s worth noting that the restaurant is not open every day of the week).
There are 12 rooms and suites spread across the hotel, most with private terraces and their own entrances. Bathrooms are modern and beds are comfortable - some rooms even come with Jacuzzi's. The majority of rooms also have sensational views of the bay and mountains.
Be it a dip in the crystalline outdoor pool or a stint in the hot tub, Real Agua Amarga is kitted out with all you need to ensure you don’t leave unrelaxed. It gets better too: a range of wellness treatments and massages are available (please book ahead of time), so you can enjoy some well-deserved TLC.
Aside from all that pampering, there’s much to keep you occupied here. Art exhibitions are held regularly at the hotel, there are plenty of hiking trails to make use of and a glittering stretch of golden shoreline is just a 5-minute drive away.
