DDG Retreat

If you 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. Chosen by many honeymoon couples or couples seeking peace and tranquillity in the sun, this private family run resort can be found just 40 minutes from Gibraltar and only 1.5 hours from Morocco, amidst gorgeous scenery.
Unique to Europe, this adults-only boutique hotel consists of just six individually-designed casas located on four hectares of land surrounded by lush, tropical gardens. Each of the casas is unique and enjoys its own privacy, complete with private terrace, majestic mountain views and personal wine cabinet. Some Casas enjoy stunning the sea views stretching over to Gibraltar and North African coastline.

Each casa has a private terrace with chill-out beds for the ultimate in relaxation and some (Casa Pino and Casa Oleandro) even have their own private plunge pools, allowing you to instantly get some respite from the sun’s rays. If a heated Jacuzzi for those cooler evenings is more your thing, then opt for Casa Bambu instead where you’ll find the most panoramic and breath-taking views over Pueblо Blanco Casares and a Jacuzzi perched on the cliff.

So, whatever the occasion – whether it’s your honeymoon, a special anniversary, a romantic break, a celebration, just some quality time away as a couple or even as an intimate wedding venue – and whether it’s just for a weekend or longer – take a look at this boutique accommodation, repeatedly referred to in TripAdvisor reviews as ‘Paradise’. Talking of TripAdvisor, DDG Retreat has received a Certificate of Excellence for 2014 for its consistently excellent reviews.

In addition to the attributes already mentioned, there’s a heated infinity pool, tennis court and a woodland spa offering relaxing treatments using a variety of natural and herbal products. Alternatively treat yourself to a candlelit dinner (each casa has its own private dining facilities) for a truly unforgettable experience. In fact, whatever your wish, DDG Retreat is committed to your every need and desire, with a determination for 100% customer satisfaction.

You’d be forgiven for thinking all this comes at a cost but with prices starting from 195 euros per night per casa, a stay here offers you luxury at a very reasonable rate. Please let us know in the comments if you’ve been and what you’re experience was like.
