Vila Galé enters Spain with a hotel in Isla Canela

The Portuguese brand Vila Galé, which already has 31 hotels in Portugal and 10 in Brazil, will arrive in Spain in Easter 2024, with the opening of a hotel in Isla Canela (Costa de la Luz, Huelva). The property is owned by Saint Croix HI, the Socimi of the Pryconsa Group.

With direct access to the Isla Canela beach, the future Vila Galé Isla Canela will have 300 rooms with terraces, two swimming pools, two restaurants, three bars, one of them by the pool, Satsanga Spa & Wellness with indoor pool, gym, massage rooms, Turkish bath, sauna and hydro-massage pool, a children’s club, event rooms and shops. The gastronomic and entertainment offer will be aimed at both families and couples.

Saint Croix HI, the socimi of the Pryconsa Group, will carry out the refurbishment for the implementation of the new Hotel Vila Galé Isla Canela on an existing hotel unit, which will undergo a complete renovation, carried out in several phases. Cushman & Wakefield Hospitality in Spain has advised on the search for the operator.

“We are very excited about this challenge in Spain. We believe that Isla Canela is a destination with great demand and potential, and that we can develop the Spanish, Portuguese and other European markets. This new unit will allow us to reinforce the group’s quality offer and international presence, especially in terms of beach and family tourism,” anticipates Vila Galé CEO Gonçalo Rebelo de Almeida.

“At Saint Croix HI we are very proud to bring a very special property to allow Vila Galé to open its first hotel in Spain, which will be a guaranteed success due to the experience and know-how of the hotel company, the quality and location of the property, right on the beachfront, as well as the benefits of the Isla Canela destination”, said Marco Colomer, CEO of Saint Croix HI.

The new Hotel Vila Galé Isla Canela is scheduled to open in April 2024.
