The countdown is on. The latest hotel from Nobu Hospitality is set to make a splash this month on Spain’s Costa del Sol. Following the launch of Nobu Hotel Ibiza Bay, the Nobu Hotel Marbella will open its doors on March 29 as an “adults-only beach retreat” offering VIP access to the Nobu restaurant and Marbella’s top nightclub in the Plaza Village.
Designed as a seductive place to see and be seen on the “Golden Mile,” the five-star hotel has a glamorous pool area, private club, beach and, por supuesto, the acclaimed restaurant. The official website notes that the hotel, with a “buzzy vibe,” was “curated for the playful.” We like the sound of the “roving mixology cart” and DJ-spun soundtrack at sunset.
There are 49 guestrooms designed in a natural color palette and equipped with exclusive Nobu bedding, terraces, espresso machines and top-notch entertainment systems. The large marble bathrooms are kitted out with rain showers and products by Barcelona skincare brand Natura Bissé. In-room spa treatments are available, but why not while away a morning at the stylish Six Senses Spa?
Nobu Hotel Marbella is a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World. Co-owned by Academy Award-winning actor Robert De Niro and chef Nobu Matsuhisa, Nobu Hotels is undergoing a rapid expansion, with properties in the pipeline in Chicago, Los Cabos, Barcelona, Toronto, Atlanta, and São Paulo, among other destinations. You can currently get a taste of Nobu hospitality in Las Vegas, London, Miami, Riyadh, Manila, Palo Alto, Ibiza, and Malibu (a “ryokan” style hotel).
