Some of the Resorts within Condado de Alhama Resort have only h-u-g-e expensive villas whilst other Resorts have only 1 bedroom apartments in them. Most Resorts within the Condado de Alhama Resort have their own town centres with countless leisure pursuits, cafés, bars and restaurants, but owners of properties in any Resort can use the central Condado de Alhama Resort town centre. In the midst of this huge Polaris World Condado de Alhama Golf Resort there is a very large lake, and not 1 but 3 Jack Nicklaus golf courses! All this at the foot of the mountains and yet just 15 minutes drive from the beach! Nestling amongst the regions most significant towns and cities, archaeological sites, mediaeval castles, nature reserves, forests, hot water spas and beauty spots, this is a place that has something for everyone, a place where you will be able to find your own private retreat, within a natural landscape, yet with all of the ‘buzz’ and nightlife on your doorstep if that is what you are looking for.

Why is each Resort within the Condado de Alhama Resort different?
Each Resort has its own personality, its own character. Each has been built with a specific buyer in mind. Want a first step on the Spanish property ladder? Then see the 1 bedroom ‘Golf Suites de Alhama’ priced from just 89,000 Euros. Want a luxury and exclusive detached villa? Then see the ‘Cortijos de Alhama’ luxury villas priced up to 1.6 million Euros. Each of the various Resorts is self-contained, secure and unique. Each aims to exceed its buyers expectations. There is one Resort of just 1 bedroom apartments; there is one of just luxury villas, and there are others that offer something in-between. There is even one being built on an island! This is a ‘Hot Spot’ property wise. This looks set to be one of the all time greats in Spanish property development, a true first in this part of Spain.

Size and Scale
9 million square meters of land within a secure walled perimeter with security controlled access, and within this are built the individual Resorts. Built with a backdrop of mountains.
Within the overall Condado de Alhama complex will be numerous individual Resorts and countless cafés, bars, restaurants, shops, banks, chemists, a cinema, a school, healthcare services, gyms, tennis courts, paddle tennis, basketball courts, football pitches, 3 Jack Nicklaus 18 hole golf courses, a huge lake, numerous town centres (many individual Resorts will have their own individual town centres and many will have their own individual sports zone).
Some Resorts will be entirely pedestrianised.
At the centre of the Polaris World Condado de Alhama Resort is the central town centre, the Oasis, built in a Hispano-Arabic style. It has been designed as the largest sports and commercial complex in the Murcia region of Spain. So it will be massive! It is neither a typical town centre nor a traditional shopping centre, but an island of wide streets and spacious squares covering 100,000 square meters. It aims to evoke a bustling Arabic quarter with its palm trees and shops, cafés, bars, restaurants, offices and other services to be found here. At one end of the island is an independent island that houses the Banos de Alhama thermal baths, with their hot and cold indoor and outdoor pools, spa and sauna covering 7,000 square meters. Also at the centre of Condado de Alhama is the huge lake. A sheet of water covering 200,000 square meters, and beyond that the brilliant green of the golf courses. The lakes water is channelled through the streets of the town centre to form ponds and fountains, and small piers jut out into the lake.
There is a cycle lane that weaves through all of the Resorts, throughout the entire Condado, and there are numerous parks, play areas, quiet areas as well as the sports areas.
The Golf Club House can be used by non-golfers. It covers 3,500 square meters.

Holiday home or permanent residence?
Mixed – some will be used primarily as holiday homes but many, especially the villas will be used as permanent residencies.

Gated community?
Yes, and on multi-levels. The outer perimeter wall encircles the entire Polaris World Condado de Alhama Resort ‘Super Resort’ and within that each individual Resort has its own individual walled perimeter with its own security controlled access. Living here is highly secure with 24 hour 7 days a week manned security access.

Building site or finished development?
The launch of the building work on this project was in January 2008, so work is in the early stages. But there were 2,500 workmen on site from 400 sub contractors, and in the height of the building works 6,000 workmen will be on site. That is a lot of input, but hopefully it will mean that completion will be on time. In addition Polaris World are not building all of the Resorts at the same time, so hopefully as each individual Resort is completed the workmen will en-mass move off site to the next Resort.
