Once the private residence of Prince Alfonso von Hohenlohe and set in a Mediterranean paradise of vineyards and olive groves at the heart of what has become known as the Golden Mile, this award-winning and highly exclusive resort exudes aristocratic elegance.
The luxurious rooms, suites and private villas all retain a sense of tradition and refined style, as do the elegant drawing room, bar, sun-dappled courtyard and colonnaded square. Subtropical gardens cascade down to the beach where guests can enjoy the friendly surroundings of the Beach Club, or the Marbella Club Thalasso Spa offering its signature ShiTao massages and anti-stress programmes.
The Marbella Club Hotel also boasts a magnificent 18-hole golf course designed by Dave Thomas, as well as well-equipped riding stables. Both are located just 20 minutes from the hotel in the incredibly beautiful surroundings of Benahavís. Back onsite and you’ll discover a brilliant children’s club for the younger guests. They’ll love the wide range of exciting activities on offer, including kayaking, surfing, Spanish and swimming lessons, and pizza and sushi making.
The hotel comprises 47 rooms, 73 suites, 14 villas and Villa del Mar. The elegant suites nestle amongst the lush gardens and offer spacious accommodation, with a separate living room and a private balcony. The Andalusian-style villas have their own gardens and pools.
The culinary offerings at the Marbella Club Hotel will not disappoint. All menus are designed by renowned chef Juan Gálvez. Whether you opt for the famous Beach Club buffet, the Golf Resort Club House restaurant or the romantic Grill Restaurant, you’ll never want to leave. Spend your days lounging on a sun bed as you listen to music and treat yourself to some freshly-caught seafood roasted on the spit from MC Beach whenever you fancy. The Champagne Room is another highlight – having undergone an extensive renovation by renowned interior designer Jean Pierre Martel in 2011, this magnificent lounge boasts a fabulous champagne menu devised by sommelier Ángel González.
