La Zambra

Much like the flamenco dance from which it takes its name, La Zambra immerses guests in the captivating charms of Andalucia. This 197-room destination resort, part of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt, offers a spectacular wellness centre, contemporary Spanish and international dining, and access to championship golf, as well as dedicated, world-class meeting facilities – all within a memorable setting with views out over rolling hills to the mountains of southern Spain. La Zambra has plenty of playful personalities. The building is an icon, the former Byblos Hotel – a jet-set favourite of the 80s and 90s with its famous white façade and blue towers. Following a complete renovation, it is now La Zambra. Although the striking Spanish architectural features have been retained, every element of the interior is reimagined with spectacular public spaces and elegant guest rooms, new restaurants and bars, while the setting has been significantly enhanced with newly landscaped gardens with swimming pools, that overlook one of the region’s most popular golf courses and to the countryside beyond.
