Luxury on every level at this adults-only beach retreat and world-renowned Marbella restaurant: there’s nowhere quite like Nobu Hotel Marbella – Spain.

This elegant getaway is strictly for grown-ups, where days are about laid-back luxury – but evenings are another story. Wrapped around the exclusive Plaza Village, high-end fine dining and jet-set style nightlife are just a stroll from your hotel room.

With pristine sand and warm, turquoise waters, the stretch of sublime bays just beyond Nobu Hotel certainly earns its name, the Golden Mile. Don your designer swimwear for a day at the beach, or slip off your sandals and kick back by the Nobu private pool. If you have dusk to dawn plans at Plaza Village, escape to your room. Creamy tones, light wood and a hint of contemporary coastal cool make each a chic space in which to ready yourself for the evening. A knock at the door signals the arrival of your pre-dinner drinks service – and then the excitement really begins.

Overlooking the buzzing Plaza, the acclaimed Nobu restaurant is just steps from your hotel room – and as a guest, you have first-in-line access. Savour signature offerings as well as exclusive creations inspired by the Andalucian setting. Elsewhere in the Plaza, enjoy two-Michelin-starred Mediterranean dishes, delectable tapas, Thai cuisine and more in this foodie paradise. Then it’s on to La Suite nightclub, with VIP table service topping up the party spirit until dawn.

ACCOMMODATION

Sleek, neutral tones and flowing design are the calling cards of the Nobu Hotel rooms and suites. Private terraces and comfortable seating indoors and out mean you’re never too far from the energy of Plaza Village. Pour yourself a drink, kick back and take in the goings on in the resort below – or soak up tranquil views of the Botanical Gardens. These are spaces to relax and recharge – all before another evening’s adventure begins.

DINING

A leading light amongst Spain’s culinary destinations, dining experiences at Nobu Marbella are sure to bring joy to the most discerning of global palates. Guests at Nobu Marbella will be delighted to discover innovative dishes that are refined, sophisticated and authentic – all set on one of the world’s most enchanting beaches. As relaxed and unpretentious as it is exciting and spontaneous, the atmosphere here is high-energy with a distinct air of celebrity.

Nobu Matsuhisa‘s acclaimed restaurant, run by Nobu’s first female Executive Chef, is located just steps away from the rooms, offering signature dishes as well as special creations inspired by local flavours.

The nearby Plaza also offers a top-rated restaurant, serving avant-garde and experimental Mediterranean cuisine as part of a gastronomic story that’s nothing short of a masterpiece.
For those looking for something a little more exotic, a sublime Thai restaurant offering only freshly prepared Asian-style food can be found next door. And if that’s not enough, guests can take a culinary tour of Europe in either a dynamic and eclectic brasserie, delivering mouth-watering tapas, a chic and authentic Italian ristorante or a deliciously wholesome gluten-free and health food bar. A short walk away lies two more iconic, beachfront eateries, one ideal for a cocktail over a sizzling barbecue skewer and the other, for the perfectly indulgent dinner for two, whilst both offering breath-taking coastal views.

And Nobu-style dining isn’t just for restaurants anymore. For the more privacy-centric foodie, guests can look forward to an exclusive 24-hour in-room menu, straight from the celebrated restaurant.

​The sports facilities are exceptional and include 10 mixed surfaced tennis courts on-site as well as a variety of local golf courses, an equestrian centre and a poolside health bar, offering healthy snacks, detox juices and ginger shots.

MARBELLA, SPAIN

But Marbella has other, less ostentatious attractions. Its natural setting is magnificent, sheltered by the beautiful Sierra Blanca mountains, while its surprisingly attractive casco antiguo (old town) is replete with narrow lanes and well-tended flower boxes.

Long before Marbella starting luring golfers, zillionaires and retired Latin American dictators it was home to Phoenicians, Visigoths, Romans and Moors. One of the joys of a visit to the modern city is trying to root out their legacy.


SPAIN

An Epic Land

Spain’s diverse landscapes stir the soul. The Pyrenees and the Picos de Europa are as beautiful as any mountain range on the continent, while the snowcapped Sierra Nevada rises up improbably from the sun-baked plains of Andalucía; these are hiking destinations of the highest order. The wildly beautiful cliffs of Spain’s Atlantic northwest are offset by the charming coves of the Mediterranean. And everywhere you go, villages of timeless beauty perch on hilltops, huddle in valleys and cling to coastal outcrops as tiny but resilient outposts of Old Spain. That’s where the country’s charms are most likely to take hold.

A Culinary Feast

Food and wine are national obsessions in Spain, and with good reason. The touchstones of Spanish cooking are deceptively simple: incalculable variety, traditional recipes handed down through the generations, and an innate willingness to experiment and see what comes out of the kitchen laboratory. You may experience the best meal ever via tapas in an earthy bar where everyone’s shouting, or via a meal prepared by a celebrity chef in the refined surrounds of a Michelin-starred restaurant. Either way, the breadth of gastronomic experience that awaits you is breathtaking and sure to be highlight of your trip.

Art Imitates Life

Poignantly windswept Roman ruins, cathedrals of rare power and incomparable jewels of Islamic architecture speak of a country where the great civilisations of history have risen, fallen and left behind their indelible mark. More recently, what other country could produce such rebellious and relentlessly creative spirits as Salvador Dalí, Pablo Picasso and Antoni Gaudí and place them front and centre in public life? And here, grand monuments of history coexist alongside architectural creations of such daring that it becomes clear Spain’s future will be every bit as original as its past.

Fiestas & Flamenco

For all the talk of Spain’s history, this is a country that lives very much in the present and there’s a reason ‘fiesta’ is one of the best-known words in the Spanish language – life itself is a fiesta here and everyone seems to be invited. Perhaps you’ll sense it along a crowded, post-midnight street when all the world has come out to play. Or maybe that moment will come when a flamenco performer touches something deep in your soul. Whenever it happens, you’ll find yourself nodding in recognition: this is Spain.
