Hilton (NYSE: HLT) has signed a franchise agreement with Empresas Phoenix to open DoubleTree by Hilton La Torre Golf & Spa Resort. The property will open later this year in La Torre Golf Resort – an emerging multi-facility leisure destination located between the city of Murcia and the Costa Calida.
Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, EMEA, Hilton, said: “Murcia is emerging as one of Spain's top leisure destinations, attracting more than 5.5 million visitors last year. The completion of the new Murcia International Airport later this year will further boost the region's attractiveness to foreign visitors, and we're pleased to be working with Empresas Phoenix to bring this outstanding resort to our guests.”
The 133 guest room DoubleTree by Hilton La Torre Golf & Spa Resort will be located in a prominent location inside La Torre Resort which includes several restaurants, a convention center and spectacular golf course. The hotel itself will have four restaurants, meeting rooms, ballroom, fitness centre and spa and pool facilities.
Orlando Chacra, President of Empresas Phoenix, said: “We are convinced that our first hotel with Hilton: DoubleTree by Hilton La Torre Golf & Spa Resort will be one of the leading hotels on the Costa Calida and with more tourists visiting the region every year it's a great time for this partnership with Hilton.”
DoubleTree by Hilton La Torre Golf & Spa Resort joins three Hilton resort hotels in Spain, including DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Spa Emporda, Hilton Sa Torre Mallorca Resort and Reserva del Higueron, Curio Collection by Hilton, which is due to open next summer.
DoubleTree by Hilton La Torre Golf & Spa Resort will be located at Calle Anchoa, 6, 30709 Roldán, Murcia.
