ACAYA GOLF CLUB
In a natural setting and unique landscape for its beauty and integrity, in the midst of the maquis and ancient olive trees, you will find the Acaya Golf Resort & SPA course, designed by the renowned American firm Hurdzan and Fry. The 18-hole par 71 course is 6,192 metres long and offers a wide variety of design, constantly searching for perfect harmony between the natural features of the land and how the shots are to be played. It therefore requires players to use all fourteen irons and woods in their bag. The fairway grass, using a strong, dense American Bermuda grass seed, guarantees that the ball will float extremely well along the surface for shots that are always sharp and clean. On the sides, a mixture of four types of fescue ripples at natural height. For the greens, two varieties, A4 and A1, of agrostis stolonifera palustris have been used: a composition that has about twice the number of stems in the grass than conventional Penncross.
The Acaya Golf Resort & Spa has 97 rooms and suites, bright and elegant spaces, with a refined design and views over the garden, the countryside or the golf course. The rooms are divided between the ground floor with a lovely patio or garden; first floor with large terrace or balcony; and second floor with panoramic roof garden; they are all extremely spacious with living area and large bathroom. And they are comfortable with king size or twin "Sweet Dreams Experience" beds and soft mattresses. There is nothing better than to lie on four feather pillows and relax by choosing one of the many channels on the 32-inch flat screen TV.
A large work desk and high speed Wi-Fi will allow you to stay connected even in this peaceful haven away from the noise of the world. They are also ideal for business travellers if they need to work in the room.
Each room is equipped with two phones, tea and coffee-making facilities, safe and hairdryer. The bathrooms have a bathtub with shower.

THE GIAN GIACOMO RESTAURANT & A TYPICAL RESTAURANT IN THE FARMHOUSE
For us, eating is a pleasure. And a real travel experience that cannot be separated from the taste. From the rich culinary tradition of Salento we started to reinterpret dishes, revisit them and develop them with broader ideas. And offer the best cuisine. "Fresh, Italian and Simple” cuisine. "A cuisine that you do not expect." The freshest local and seasonal raw materials are used in innovative, rich and tasty menus to be tasted in the refined Gian Giacomo Restaurant inside the resort. You'll appreciate a perfect mix of traditional and international cuisine, which is always digestible and light, all à la carte.
Surrounded by the greenery amidst the golf course, the restaurant of the ancient farmhouse dating back to the sixteenth century offers exclusively a typical cuisine with tasty local products and dishes. During the summer, the scenic atmosphere of the farmhouse becomes an exceptional setting for candlelit receptions and gala dinners.
Among the fragrant gardens, olive groves and pine forest, you will find our 1,200 m2 of Spa. A holistic approach to health, wellbeing and fitness where you can rediscover the pleasure of taking care of yourself.
The spa facilities, the ideal prelude to any treatment, include a chromotherapy and panoramic Jacuzzi, sauna, steam bath, frigidarium, tepidarium, sensory shower, relaxation area with herbal teas and complimentary pack with fluffy bathrobes and towels.
THE BEST BEACHES OF SALENTO
The Adriatic coast of Salento offers the most beautiful beaches of Apulia, lapped by a clear blue sea whose incredible transparency is often compared to tropical scenery. From our resort you can easily reach the most attractive coastlines. As those of Conca Specchiulla, San Foca, or Torre dell'Orso. The Bay of Torre dell'Orso has received also this year the "Bandiera Blu" and the "5 Vele" of Legambiente (the highest reward in Italy) for cleaness and clarity of the waters. The half-moon-shaped bay extends for about one Km between two cliffs, from one of which you can admire the famous cliff of Le Due Sorelle. The sand is fine with a typical silvery-white color, the waters are crystal clear and often framed by dramatic cliffs and stretches of green pine forest. Extraordinary views where you can experience all the beauty of the sea from morning to night, enjoying one of the many typical food of the place, as the fresh ice coffee with almond milk, the "pasticciotto" - a typical sweet pastry - or the "frisella" with tomatoes, rocket and capers.
"Ultima Spiaggia" delle Cesine, the beach chosen for you...
Among Ferzan Ospetek’s favourite corners of Salento is "Ultima Spiaggia" delle Cesine, the beach chosen for you by Acaya Golf & Spa Resort. A little seaside jewel of quality, passion, care and attention, which smiles at the sea. The bluest corner of the Adriatic Sea, right on the border with Le Cesine WWF nature reserve, from which it takes its name. Here the sea dominates, with its many shades of blue and emerald finishing with indigo on the horizon. The white sand bears black streaks, volcanic sediments brought by the currents from the River Ofanto to the coast of Salento. Don’t miss an iced coffee on the terrace, an aperitif at sunset, or one of the many little concerts under the stars.

Water engineering and extraordinary design...
A SUSTAINABLE MASTERPIECE
Extensive and diversified water distribution ensures that the grass is watered in a calibrated way, carefully measured to reduce any possibility of overdose and waste. A complex system of lakes and streams makes it possible to manage and conserve the water, which is oxygenated naturally by a system of small waterfalls. This impressive work of hydraulic engineering provides a delicate soundtrack and a series of obstacles along the edges of the course.
A spectacular waterfall
BETWEEN HOLES 11 AND 12
Some holes are flanked by beautiful and strategically placed lakes and streams. You can see the pools at holes 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10. A spectacular waterfall divides holes 11 and 12. The wind, "the most important and fascinating of the hazards", is a feature of the course as if it were a Scottish links, and urges you to choose directions and parabolas in order to exploit its drifts. The mild climate makes it particularly enjoyable to play and stay all months of the year.
