Marbella’s luxury hotels among the finest in the world

Villa Padierna Hotel MarbellaAs a leading upmarket destination Marbella is naturally well endowed with luxurious venues, sporting amongst others one of the highest concentrations of five star resort hotels in Europe, yet even among these there are of course those that stand out as the best in their class. Within the ranks of the area’s luxury five star hotels you will therefore find some of the very finest hotels of their kind internationally, a fact that is attested to by their inclusion in the rankings of such venerated organisations as The Leading Hotels of the World and Small Luxury Hotels of the World. Representing the very finest tradition of Marbella as a glamorous jet set destination in the sun, the Marbella Club Hotel was there at the birth of the Costa del Sol, welcoming in those heady days international stars such as Sean Connery, Deborah Kerr and Frank Sinatra. It is a tradition that has continued unchanged ever since, as the Marbella Club retains its exclusivity and tradition. Well-travelled international guests love the stylish rooms and suites, the classic Marbella ambience, the space and attention to detail, and of course the famous Marbella Grill restaurant and private event areas. Luxury hotels in MarbellaNew generations of international stars have also become accustomed to the opulence and privacy of the hotel’s villas, a feature that has become increasingly in vogue among the finest hotels. The Marbella Club’s Twin, the Puente Romano Hotel, shares a privileged location right between the Golden Mile and the Mediterranean beaches, whilst including a trendy nightclub, beachside club and the famous Puente Romano Tennis Club, home to the annual Marbella Masters. The younger blood in Marbella’s top line-up is made up of two hotels that have built an impressive reputation in a relatively short time, and are fast on the way to becoming modern classics. The Kempinski Resort Hotel, situated on the New Golden Mile, evokes the architectural exoticism of Ouarzazate in Morocco, though set within lush, flowing tropical gardens that cascade across various levels towards aquamarine pools and immaculate lawns. The poolside restaurant and club literally border the beach amid open panoramas of the Mediterranean, making this a paradise for lovers of the sea. Hotel Villa Padierna, by contrast, feels like a landed estate surrounded by acres of sculpted park. Indeed, with its regal styling this hotel appears more like the ancestral home of an ancient aristocratic family, yet in reality its park is a beautiful Tuscan-inspired golf course and its palace home Hotel Villa Padierna luxury marbellato sumptuous suites, bars, restaurants and a luxurious spa. It too provides private villas, a choice that Michelle Obama opted for when she stayed in Marbella. Though it caused a great deal of excitement at the time, she was by no means the only first lady or head of state to sample Marbella’s finest establishments for herself and spend some quality time in one of the Mediterranean’s favourite locations.
