PGA Catalunya revamps with new medi-wellness centre and wellbeing real estate offering

01 Jan 2021
Luxury Spanish golf destination PGA Catalunya Resort is introducing new wellness facilities in 2021, with an estimated investment of €5m (£4.6m, US$6.1m).

In Q1 20201, the 145-key resort is gearing up to open an exciting 1,000sq m wellness centre designed by Lagula architects, which will offer a luxurious holistic experience complemented by medical-backed modalities.

Set in 540 hectares of Mediterranean forest featuring copious woodlands and lakes, PGA Catalunya offers a rejuvenating experience that integrates physical and mental health into a space that nurtures fulfilment through golf, leisure and low-density living.

Treatments will include a combination of next-generation technology and traditional therapeutic and holistic treatments that will appeal to both leisure and wellness guests, including cryotherapy, IV infusions, hyperbaric oxygen therapy and bio-photo modulation.

“The appeal of PGA Catalunya being set in such expansive surroundings has led us to experience a large increase in interest as open spaces are becoming more important than ever,” said David Plana, resort CEO, “along with the benefits of the surrounding nature, outdoor experiences, wellness and sports facilities.”

Leading the way in next-generation wellness architecture and property design, PGA Catalunya also unveiled plans for its latest luxury real estate offering – the WELL Villa.

The new designs are being conceptualised to provide the homeowner with a true holistic living experience, with all aspects of physical and mental wellbeing in front of mind.

It includes pioneering technology focused on seven key concepts: mind, air, water, nutrition, light, exercise and comfort.

The first phase of the construction will include a detailed geobiological study to ensure the house is placed in an optimal enclave and to check there is no artificial radiation surrounding the villa.

The resort places a large amount of emphasis on its natural environment and even has its own resident environmental biologist, Oriol Dalmau, who is dedicated to preserving its ecological environment.

Spearheading PGA Catalunya nature project, Dalmau has already introduced a colony of one million bees, hundreds of bird nests and works daily to promote the life of endangered local species in and around the golf courses.

Oriol is also highly dedicated to passing his knowledge down to the next generation, through a range of fun activities for families, such as escapades to the Bird Nest and to see the Tortoises.
