Game, set, match
Puente Romano Marbella has long been known as a premier destination for tennis. The Puente Romano Tennis Club was opened by Bjorn Borg in 1979 and hasn’t looked back since, playing host to numerous prestigious events and tournaments featuring the tennis world’s brightest stars. Fancy yourself the next on-court sensation? Professional tennis coaches are on hand to improve your game, whether you’re a novice player or a seasoned expert. The club boasts two hard and eight clay courts, including the Central Court, with seating capacity for over 2,000 spectators!
Rest and relaxation
The Six Senses Spa offers the ultimate in pampering. The spa menu features an array of therapies and treatments designed to help you relax and unwind. Perhaps you’ll choose a chilled foot rub, or go all-out with an 80-minute deep tissue massage. For rejuvenation, why not try the 24k Gold Age-Defying facial, a Pure Oxygen Treatment or the energising Rasayana Detox Body Wrap? A new innovation at the spa is a selection of wellness activities; whether you choose a tailormade package or take part in the holistic yoga programme, you’re sure to leave feeling fully rested and revitalised.
Puente Romano Marbella isn’t just for grown-ups – the entire brood will find entertainment and things to do throughout the holiday. As well as having a stunning stretch of beach on its doorstep, the resort has a superb range of activities and clubs for younger guests aged from four to 16. Tennis, golf, swimming and watersports lessons are available, with personalised programmes for each tutee. Other activities include language lessons, cooking and photography classes, jewellery workshops, discos, DJ sessions and a cinema programme during the summer.
After a full day of being pampered, filling up on gourmet fare and relaxing on the picture-perfect beach, there’s still plenty more to do after the sun goes down! La Plaza is the place to be for a pre- or post-dinner drink; relax and listen to live music – with a cooling cocktail in the summer or under a cosy blanket in the winter. Those who wish to party into the early hours should try La Suite – a nightclub inspired by a typical New York City loft. The Puente Romano Tennis Club’s Central Court has also hosted plenty of world-class open-air concerts, with the likes of Liza Minnelli and Lionel Richie just some of the A-list names to have played here.
