FOOTBALLER DAVID SILVA'S LUXURY HOTEL OPENS IN THE CANARY ISLANDS

International news
As elite footballers approach the end of their careers, they often look for investment opportunities. With their large salaries, a world of possibilities opens up, and for ex-Manchester City and Spain midfielder, David Silva, the choice was to invest close to home. He has ventured into the hospitality industry with a luxury resort in his hometown of Arguineguín, in Gran Canaria.

The Resort Cordial Santa Águeda, situated along the coast in the Arguineguín ravine, features a new seafront promenade that connects the maritime neighbourhoods of El Pajar and Playa de Arguineguín. Guests praise its prime location and the two stunning infinity pools, one with a solarium and the other in the revamped Perchel Beach Club area.

David Silva attended the inauguration of this new hotel area, designed as the largest beach club in the Canary Islands, aimed at families. Spanning over 7,000 square metres, the club boasts sun loungers, Balinese beds, and the best views of Arguineguín Bay from the exclusive Belvedere terrace.

Earlier this year, the local council approved an expansion of the resort, a joint project by David Silva and the Del Castillo family. This next phase includes the construction of 20 holiday homes, adding to the 87 existing units at the Resort Cordial Santa Águeda.
