Central Mexico Golf Destination
The Oasis San Miguel Guesthouse
San Miguel de Allende, known for its vibrant arts scene and charm, is also becoming a sought-after destination for Texas Golf Insider readers looking for a unique and relaxing retreat. With its stunning landscapes, welcoming atmosphere, and world-class golf courses, this quaint town in central Mexico offers the perfect combination of sporting adventure and cultural immersion. One special place that stands out is The Oasis San Miguel Guesthouse, a hidden gem embraced by travelers seeking tranquility amidst the city's hustle and bustle.
A Moroccan-Inspired Haven
At The Oasis, a cozy bed and breakfast situated on the southwest edge of town, Susan O'Neal has created a haven of understated elegance. The guesthouse features five ensuite rooms adorned with Moroccan-style décor, a sparkling blue-tiled pool surrounded by swaying palms, and lush landscaping. Its intimate setting evokes a sense of home away from home, making it the perfect place to unwind and relax after a round of golf or any other exciting activities in the region.
“People feel very much at home in San Miguel and especially at The Oasis,” ONeal said. “Visitors fall in love with the setting – our city is very safe and welcoming. Once you come here, you just don’t want to leave. I know I didn’t.”
Golfers' Paradise with Exclusive Discounts
For golf enthusiasts, The Oasis is ideally located just blocks away from the renowned Malanquin Golf Club and a short 15-minute drive from Las Ventanas Golf Club. Malanquin GC, designed by Steven Newgent, offers a picturesque 18-hole course carved through valleys and wooded hills, with narrow fairways and artificial lakes. Enjoy breathtaking views of the Allende Dam and Sierra de Guanajuato mountains during your rounds. The 18-hole course plays at 7,289 yards from its back set of tee sand to a par of 72 and has Bent grass putting surfaces. The front nine starts the round in a relatively benign fashion via wide fairways divided by trees and some gentle hills. Things get a lot tougher on the back, as the fairways narrow and there’s more water and sand to avoid.
Las Ventanas, a Nick Faldo/Schmidt-Curley-designed course, is regarded as the area's premier golfing destination. With its challenging layout and undulating terrain, this course promises an unforgettable golfing experience. The course plays to a par of 70 and has tee boxes and fairways turfed with Kentucky Bluegrass and Bent grass greens. The fairways are generous and fairly easy to hit but its putting surfaces are the real test.
At The Oasis, guests can take advantage of a special stay-and-play package. Golfers receive a significant 20% discount on rounds at Malanquin GC. Additionally, groups who book all five suites at the same time get a "pay-for-four, get-the-fifth-free" offer, allowing friends and fellow golfers to enjoy the golfing adventure together.
