Fancy something a little further afield? Get back to nature with a sensory spa break in one of Andalucia’s stunning National Parks. The spa cabana at this luxury retreat nestles amongst the trees and guests enjoy pampering treatments (organic of course) against the backdrop of chirping cicadas and the scent of pines.

Solitude and seclusion in southern Spain.

If you love the Spanish climate and are looking to truly get away from it all – away from screaming children and away from the hustle and bustle of much of the Costa del Sol – then take a look at the total privacy and relaxation offered by DDG Retreat.

Honeymoon hotels with private pool

Two of the characterful suites at DDG Retreat have a private plunge pool but my favourite is Casa Pino. There are panoramic views from the terrace and a private plunge pool, tropical gardens and private dining terrace. Close to pretty Casares, the famous ‘pueblo blanco’ and the glitzy Costa del Sol, this adult-only hotel screams romance

Where to go on Honeymoon in May

By Jane Anderson, Editor of 101 Honeymoons

Want somewhere a bit different? Take a look at DDG Retreat, a gorgeous eco-friendly hideaway in the hills of Andalucia. It has just five individually designed casas – some with outdoor baths – plus a lovely restaurant, spa, infinity pool and hammam.


“With an exotic romance you’d expect to have to fly long-haul to find, DDG Retreat is a short hop to the hills of southern Spain. Stay in one of five intimate casas, each individually styled – some have a plunge pool or alfresco bed for sleeping under the stars. Venture out to explore Andalucía and the Costa del Sol, cycling through pine forest, and pamper yourselves in the spa.”

Jane Anderson, Editor 101 Honeymoons

…DDG Retreat, a tropical garden in the Sierra Crestellina, above Casares, in Andalusia, is said by many to be the most romantic place in the world. Six utterly private casitas with stocked wine fridges are scattered amid the banana plants, with views over Gibraltar to Africa. Facilities include a pool, a spa, a sauna and hammam and a simple restaurant ..

“Put simply, there is everything here you’d want from a high-end holiday – privacy, a knock-out infinity pool, ambitious architecture, a tennis fan’s dream court, the option of a private chef and as much tropical foliage as these surprisingly verdant mountains – part of the Sierra Crestellina range – can muster. Only there’s no big company lurking in the background, just Alex, Olga, a tiny staff and boundless enthusiasm.”

Relax, Unwind and Get Married at the DDG Retreat on the Costa del Sol

I’m all for travelling long distances to seek out new and exciting locations, however if you want to get married or spend your honeymoon in a location not too far away from home, then why not consider the DDG Retreat in Spain, located close to Casares on the Costa del Sol.



Why go? For a honeymoon or a relaxing romantic retreat… By Ben Cooper

A more secretive place to stay than DDG Retreat it’d be hard to imagine – ‘retreat’ being very much the operative word. From the village of Casares, you head sharply uphill through a series of twisting residential streets, and finally head down a narrow track; just when you’re about to give up and turn around, you drive up to an unmarked gate and pass through it into a quiet pine forest with a walled compound at its heart stretched out on the hillside.


“(We) met possibly the most solicitous and charming hotel owners in the business and I found a perfect bolt hole to recommend to friends,”
