The Travel Architect at La Manga Club

I have stayed in self catering town houses over the past 10 years at La Manga Club.However my visit this time is being spent at the 5 star Hotel Principe Felipe at the heart of the La Manga community.
La Manga Club is like a town in itself with the hotel with its 192 rooms to the studios, apartments and townhouses at Las Lomas beside the 2000 sq m Spa, fitness centre and fabulous indoor pool.
There are over 20 bars and restaurants to choose from along with a petrol station, supermarkets, banks and a selection of shops and boutiques.
La Manga Club is probably most famous for its 3 championship golf courses, pitch and putt and the new David Leadbetter Academy which opened last September.

There are also 28 tennis courts and a very busy tennis academy. Andre Begemann is here at the moment preparing for Roland Garros.
There is a professional football centre with 8 pitches and the Hibs team had just left the day before we arrived.
   

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

 There are a wide range of sports academies for children and adults alike but if you just want to chill out that’s perfectly acceptable !
So why not try a holiday here ? –  La Manga Club has something for everyone and all ages 

   

               

Biras Creek Resort – Virgin Gorda – British Virgin Islands

Biras Creek Resort situated in Berchers Bay on Virgin Gorda has 31 suites ranging from garden suites to premier,oceanfront and the grand suite.

I am currently staying in an oceanfront suite with outside shower – I’m a big lover of those !

Two bicycles are provided to each suite and there are various pathways to cycle round as the resort is fairly spread out.

If you are feeling energetic there are cycling and hiking trails along with a variety of complimentary water sports.
