Top reasons to invest in a spa resort
The award winning and highly sought after Champneys Spa Resort group is taking its mix of pampering treatments and luxury services to a new level with the opening of its premier Marbella resort. Spain has been selected as the inaugural overseas location due to its inimitable popularity and accessibility with the British market and with over 300 days of sunshine a year, it brings a new meaning to a hot spa experience! Just a ten minute drive from the millionaire’s playground of Puerto Banus and yet seemingly a world a way from the high paced action of Marbella the resort is a healing oasis of calm for its residents and guests.
The concept is attracting a lot of interest from buyers and the media so just what are the reasons to invest in a spa development?
Retreat and revive
Set amongst stunning parkland and beautifully landscaped gardens interwoven with waterways fed by natural running mountain springs, Champneys Marbella is a haven where residents’ peace, health and well being are of paramount importance. With stress related illnesses now affecting around 530,000 individuals in Britain, (according to the Health and Safety Executive) what could be a better place soak away your troubles and soothe your soul?
Eat your way into health
To make the most of a spa development and the lifestyle that it offers owners, healthy living, diet and exercise are of key importance. The Mediterranean way and pace of life has long been known to be beneficial to your health. The mix of reliable sunshine and meals consisting of fresh fish, fresh vegetables and olive oils, make Spain one of the healthiest nations on the planet, and a perfect setting for a new spa resort which will hold maximum appeal for visitors
More for your money
Situated in a prime location close to Malaga International Airport, golf courses galore and shopping boutiques for every budget, the resort is sure to be a popular destination for those looking to escape the pressures of the rat race. According to moneysupermarket.com the cost of living in the UK is up by an effective 9.5%, and with (Kyero.com) predicting that the cost of living in Spain is approximately one third less than that of the UK, it’s easy to see why more people are looking to Spain as an alternative.
Not just a girl thing
It’s not just the ladies looking for a spot of spa therapy… According to the International Spa Association, men now make up 29 percent of all spa goers and they aren’t just checking in for sports injuries. Men are waking up to the feel good factors of self indulgent pampering, booking themselves in for seaweed body wraps and cocoa body rubdowns.
A feel good property investment
A spa resort is the target for the discerning real estate investor. Gone are the days when a swimming pool or access to a golf course is enough of a draw for property buyers. Investors are looking for added value, opportunity for property rentals and an overall quality purchase. Champneys Marbella not only has the weight of the Champneys brand behind it, the resort has been designed with quality and luxury as a priority. The award winning architects behind the Moorish buildings boast a track record of majestic status having worked on the restoration of Granada’s Al Hambra palace. Each property will be finished with plush interiors and come fully furnished down to the plasma TV screen. Each apartment and penthouse contains a stunning interior courtyard where the sound of running water from ornamental fountains enhances the relaxing atmosphere of these beautifully appointed properties.
Relax with your rentals
An undeniable added incentive for potential investors is the rental pool scheme that Champneys Marbella is offering. The Champneys Rental Pool allows you to rent your property to people purchasing spa package holidays with Champneys, in much the same way as visitors use the four UK spa resorts. You are not tied in however; owners have complete freedom over when they want to use their property and when they want to benefit from the rental income. With predicted occupancy levels of 65%, owners should benefit from a healthy return on their investment. *
The resort has already been the subject of keen interest. Tony Roberts Sales Director of Champneys Marbella comments, "Our clients trust in our brand and reputation, they know that Champneys is dedicated to providing superior quality in terms of the accommodation and the services available to residents and guests.“
