Already a great golf course for many the Top in Europe it now adds a new lifestyle hotel to complete your golfing experience. Undoubtley a superb location an hour from Barcelona and on the doorstep of Girona. Technology is key to the new hotel with pre-check in (it works for the airlines why not a hotel room?)

Opening its doors on 1 April 2018, Caddy Rooms is an exciting new lifestyle hotel situated within the prestigious PGA Catalunya Resort, home to Spain’s no.1 course. The launch of the hotel, set within one of Europe’s most coveted leisure destinations, will give visitors a brand-new experience of the resort.
Joining the movement of pioneering hotels that are currently reshaping and rethinking the modern-day hotel experience, Caddy Rooms merges sleek design, high-tech features and buzzing communal spaces to create an alternative lifestyle hotel. Ideally located just 10-minutes from the historic town of Girona and an hour from the vibrant metropolis of Barcelona, Caddy Rooms is an ultra-modern 50-room boutique hotel that offers direct access to the world-class offering of the PGA Catalunya Resort.
Characterised by its precise and intelligent design, Caddy Rooms retains a stylish and contemporary aesthetic throughout. With a focus on providing guests with everything they need and nothing they don’t, the hotel marks the first of its kind to open outside of a city location.
Technology is at the centre of the Caddy Rooms experience, ensuring a seamless journey for guests from the point of arrival. Breaking the mould of a traditional check-in, guests are able to do so prior to arrival via the dedicated hotel app or at the iPads situated in the Bar, gaining access to a digital room key and allowing guests to communicate with the hotel and its services at the touch of a button.
In addition, guests do not need to check-out at the end of their stay. Markus Laahanen, director of operations, says: “We are incredibly excited to be launching Caddy Rooms on the magnificent PGA Catalunya Resort this spring. Our goal is to bring something completely new to the destination by offering a fresh take on a lifestyle hotel featuring high design and low-price points.
Caddy Rooms will attract those with a millennial mind-set who want a social and flexible hotel environment without compromising on style or substance. Created in response to the needs of the modern-day traveller, the boutique hotel will provide a new view on the resort experience.”
The stylish, design-led rooms have been created to meet the needs of the leisure traveller, providing a flexible space in which guests can tune in or tune out. Featuring the latest high-tech audio and visual gadgets, speedy Wi-Fi and a specially-designed golf storage area, each room also has a balcony boasting unrivalled views over the golf course and beyond, expansive beds and monsoon showers. The bathroom amenities are provided by Lavar, a new Irish brand which is working exclusively with Caddy Rooms.
