The Hotel Servigroup Galúa celebrates 50 years
Hotel Servigroup Galúa celebrates its 50th birthday as a hotel establishment. They will honour five decades in which our hotel in La Manga has been and continues to be considered an important reference in the national tourist panorama.
Our hotel chain based in Benidorm incorporated the Hotel Galúa to its growing list of establishments in the spring of 2012. Since then a major investment was made in order to update and improve the hotel in terms of its structure, Services and its facilities, and thus adapting it to the standards more typical of the hotel brand. One of the great products of this investment is the cosy wellness centre, which was first made available to the public in the spring of 2014.
This Friday, 5th May is when the emotional event took place in which the guests had the possibility to enjoy a somewhat special stay. The hotel was decorated for the occasion as well as the blowing of the candles on the three original cakes made especially for this event.
The classic Hotel Galua was inaugurated in the spring on the 5th May 1967, becoming one of the first hotels in La Manga del Mar Menor
The building was designed by the architect Tomás Maestre, and was promoted under the slogan "15 centimeters from the coast!".
Located at the edge of the Mediterranean Sea and a short distance from the Mar Menor, the new hotel became a shining light amongst the highest quality holiday products, in the height of tourist boom in Spain.
The appearance of the Hotel Galúa in the most tourist area of the moment in the Costa Cálida was noted by the visit of Manuel Fraga Iribarne, after a small crossing in a canoe along the Mar Menor he then went to the hotel to proceed with its inauguration.
The then minister was accompanied by Don Leon Herrera Esteban, Director General of Business and Tourist Activities, and by Don Luis Navarro Garnica, lieutenant general chief of the Air force. Also attending, was Baron Antoine Beyens, Belgian ambassador to Spain, and ex-minister Jorge Suerodíaz.
Exactly a half century later, La Manga's popular establishment, converted five years ago into Hotel Servigroup Galúa, continues to be the place selected by many families who choose La Manga to spend their holiday time, all in an environment where the most popular traditional water activities in La Manga offer a great playground for all water sports lovers.
For all that, Servigroup remembered those fifty years in the company of some of those old workers who began their work careers as youngsters, as well as loyal customers who have seen their children grow up spending their holiday at the Hotel Galúa on the Costa Calida, and neighbours of the town of La Manga who witnessed its birth 50 years ago.
