The philosophy of this stunning luxury resort is the pursuit of wellness and respect for the environment, making it the perfect travel destination for anyone looking to recharge their batteries in beautiful natural surroundings – especially keen golfers. Located close to Porto Ercole, this visually stunning hotel offers guests the opportunity to explore the beautiful Maremma area of Tuscany, including the crystal clear waters of the “silver coast” and the cork-oak woods, home to a wide variety of woodland animals and birds. For those who want to explore further afield, Rome is just 140 km away and Florence 180 km.
This stunning design hotel is decked out in shades of black, white and brown, creating an impressive visual impact. The style is contemporary yet luxurious, with many quirky touches throughout, such as the furry beanbag style seating in the lobby. Everything is designed with the resort’s philosophy in mind, so you will find yourself in a relaxing, calm environment that perfectly complements its natural surroundings.
The Argentario Golf Resort and Spa offers a choice of accommodation including superior rooms, suites, junior suites and the Locker Cottage – a modern twist on a traditional Tuscan country house with three double rooms, 3D TVs, hot tub and private olive garden. Based on a clean, minimalist design, the use of luxurious touches in the main hotel rooms, such as stone bath tubs and chrome plating, add comfort and character. All rooms have free Wi-Fi and private patios which are ideal for soaking up some afternoon sun. Many of the suites enjoy free-standing bathtubs in the bedroom, while the majority of rooms have king-sized beds, some with the option of twin beds instead. Room Tip – the higher floors command lovely views, while the suites here are simply stunning and well worth the extra money.
Restaurant and Bar
Operating a “zero km” policy, the food at Restaurant Dama Dama is about as local as it gets, with produce being sourced from nearby farms and even the hotel’s own vegetable garden and orchard. Named for the species of deer that makes its home in the woodlands of the Maremma, the restaurant adheres to the eco-friendly and wellness philosophies of the hotel, not just by creating dishes from organic local produce, but in offering delicious, healthy and nutritionally balanced choices to support the health of its guests. With the décor echoing a sophisticated, updated vision of a mountain retreat, lunch and dinner can be enjoyed in truly stylish surroundings, while the bar definitely offers the same, featuring a spectacular spiral staircase and tables designed to resemble wild boar.
Pool and Activities
Home to some of the most important tournaments in Italy, the Argentario Golf course is the main attraction of this resort for any keen golfer. Designed by architect David Mezzacane and professional golfer Baldovino Dassù, the challenging 18 hole course offers beautiful panoramic views, and due to the mild local micro-climate, can be enjoyed all year round. If you’re not a golfer, there’s still more than enough to keep you entertained. The stunning Espace Wellness Centre is an oasis in white with touches of black and natural wood, and offers state of the art spa and wellness facilities including Technogym equipment, heated indoor pool with saline water and bio-sauna with chromotherapy. The hotel also has three tennis courts, a football field and trails for joggers.
Access to the spa facilities is included when you book a room, but massages or treatments will cost extra. A golfer’s paradise, this beautiful resort is ideal for anyone wanting to nourish both mind and body!
