Jumeirah to manage luxury polo resort in Argentina
THE Jumeirah Group has been appointed to manage a luxury lifestyle resort dedicated to polo and equestrian sports in Argentina.
The Jumeirah Culu Culu Polo Lifestyle Resort will be located in Lobos.
Guests of the resort will have access to eight polo fields, incorporating two championship polo fields and a spa and fitness centre. The construction of this luxurious polo community is due to be completed by 2010. The second phase of the development will also encompass an 18 hole golf course and an additional 400 privately owned villas. Jumeirah will manage the five star hotel of 252 rooms, including 90 suites in a central building and the remainder in one-four bedroom villas. Facilities will include four restaurants and bars, Jumeirah’s signature Talise Spa, a health club, swimming pools and tennis courts. The resort will also include 220 Jumeirah Living serviced privately owned villas.
This agreement with Culu Culu Lifestyle marks Jumeirah’s entry into South America and a key addition to Jumeirah’s rapidly growing portfolio of luxury hotels and resorts.
“Our exciting polo resort lies on one kilometre of an untouched lake and bird sanctuary. Polo playing, equestrian activities and bird watching facilities enable families to go back to nature whilst dynamic Buenos Aires is only an hour away,” said Al Alletzhauser, founder of Culu Culu Lifestyle Resort.
