5 star wedding venues and service

If Murcia’s climate was not reason enough to get married in Spain, the region also boasts a variety of luxury 5 star hotels that provide the ideal backdrop to any wedding abroad from the world-famous La Manga Club, home to the stunning Hotel La Manga Club Príncipe Felipe, to Polaris World’s spectacular 5 star Intercontinental Hotels & Spas on Mar Menor Golf Resort and La Torre Golf Resort.

Positioned beside a lake, la Torre Golf Resort’s beautiful wedding & conference centre, offers the space, elegance and privacy most wedding parties could wish for. With a dramatic setting overlooking a lake and the manicured fairways of the Jack Nicklaus 18-hole golf course, the venue with an expansive terrace offers up to 4000 square meters of space for each event and celebration.

For each special occasion the bride and groom can relax while qualified and experienced staff and caterers take care of all the details, from elegantly adorned tables and chairs, delicate flowers, celebratory balloons, fine Spanish wines and delicious local cuisine. While the 5 star Intercontinental Hotel & Spa at the Mar Menor Golf Resort offers a sensational backdrop with a stunning infinity pool surrounded by luxury villas and lush green fairways; both hotels offer a truly remarkable setting and unashamed 5 star luxury and entertainment for catered weddings.

Murcia’s superb year-round climate

Situated in Spain’s southeast corner and enjoying temperatures in the mid 20s during the month of November 2009, Murcia’s incredible weather is a well-kept secret. Typically the region enjoys warm spring sunshine, very hot dry summers (mid-high 30c) and mild winter months (12-16C). With 2800 hours of sunshine each year and an average temperature of 19-20 degrees Celsius, it is little wonder the region is becoming so popular for year-round Murcia villa holidays as well as overseas weddings.

Ideal honeymoon destination

From Murcia’s calm Mediterranean waters, golden beaches and luxury 5 star hotels, to the region’s pampering spas, wonderful restaurants and celebrated golf courses, Murcia is an ideal honeymoon location that offers romance, sunshine and pure relaxation after the big day is over. Newly weds can choose the pampering luxury of a presidential suite in one of the region’s 5 star hotels or opt for the private serenity of one of Murcia luxury villa with pools, the most luxurious perhaps being found on El Valle Golf Resort or La Manga. With golf, horse riding, swimming, diving, sailing, windsurfing and snorkeling all on your doorstep, as well as beautiful historic cities offering fabulous restaurants, cafes markets and shopping all within 30 minutes’ drive; Murcia is an ideal Spanish honeymoon getaway.

Affordable villa accommodation for wedding guests

One key element to the region’s growing popularity for weddings is the fact many 4 or 3 bed villas with pools in Murcia or apartments, that can sleep up to 4-8 people each, are still considerably cheaper to rent for 2-3 days then villas on Spain’s more established and popular Costas. For wedding parties looking to accommodate large numbers of guests, there is no shortage of quality villas with pools for guests to relax in before and after the wedding celebrations.

Most established Murcia rental agents can also find suitable and affordable accommodation for large groups that require their own privacy but yet proximity to other wedding guests on the same golf resort the wedding is being held at; avoiding expensive transfer costs to and from the reception. With most golf resorts in Murcia offering guests onsite supermarkets, hairdressers, bars and restaurants, all within waling distance of their luxury villas, Murcia definitely offers wedding groups convenience, comfort and incredible good value.

It’s easy to fly to Murcia

Flying to Murcia is getting easier and easier with regular budget airlines operating flights to Murcia San Javier airport and Alicante airport. The new and much anticipated International Corvera airport, near to Hacienda del Alamo Golf Resort is also due to open in 2011, which will open up the region for more international wedding parties.
