Certainly the most glamorous hotel on the Iberian Peninsula, the Marbella Club was a pioneer of ‘barefoot luxury’ when opened in the 1950s by Prince Alfonso von Hohenlohe, who wanted to share Marbella’s unique climate and relaxed way of life with fellow members of the international set. Traditional Andalusian architecture combine with the immaculately tended mature gardens to create an utterly unspoiled refuge that has seduced visiting royalty, actors; musicians, sporting personalities, heads of state and high living aristocrats. In recent years the Marbella Club has acquired a modern thalasso spa, a Dave Thomas designed golf course, an equestrian center and a world-class shopping gallery. In facilities it is the equal of any international resort, but in terms of charm and character it is in a league of its own.
Featuring lush tropical gardens stretching down to the beach, the resort is in the heart of the “Golden Mile,” near historic Marbella on Spain’s Costa del Sol.
Choose from nine bars and restaurants including an opulent Champagne bar, lavish beachfront buffet, romantic grill restaurant and trendy café.
The renowned beachfront Thalasso Spa includes a dynamic indoor sea water pool, Turkish steam baths, saunas, a solarium and 12 treatment rooms.
