ADVERTORIAL • May 2023
It’s not often that a hotel can tick everyone’s boxes, which is why we love celebrating those that do. Enter Nobu Hotel Marbella – where dreamy design, tropical gardens and blue skies make you think you might just have stumbled upon heaven. So, whether you prize a spectacular meal, sensational spa or just love a great pool, here’s the Golden Mile address that can provide…
Let’s be clear, this hotel rolls out the red carpet for foodies. It’s the kind of peerless gastronomy that follows anywhere bearing the Nobu name. Its showstopper, Nobu Marbella restaurant, offers game-changing Japanese dishes created by the world-famous chef-founder Nobu Matsuhisa – missing none of the classics (black cod miso and famous Wagyu beef, here we come) After a morning spent lazing in the sun, the only interruption should be a languid, beachside lunch: head to laidback Chiringuito for local speciality, black paella. At the end of the day, a long, cold cocktail is waiting for you at Les Jardins Du Liban, surrounded by lush Mediterranean gardens.
If you arrived with even an ounce of stress, that’s not sticking around – not if Nobu Hotel Marbella’s expert therapists have anything to do with it. Signature treatments are inspired by local Andalusian produce, while hydrotherapy, icy plunge pools, a herbal steam room, sauna and hammam come as standard. For a daily dose of calm, you can attend complimentary yoga and Pilates classes, or take your pick from the hotel’s many pools, including one that is exclusively adults-only. If wellness means fitness, a state-of-the-art centre will have you pumping iron to live DJs – it’s home to the latest TechnoGym equipment and even an Everlast boxing ring.
Nobu Hotel Marbella offers contemporary, coastal comfort with a Japanese aesthetic twist, and yet that classic, Spanish charm still pervades. Relax and unwind in a sleek, stylish guestroom, curated with a minimalist, calming design approach that’s all relaxing tones and rustic materials. Wash away the sand in a rainfall shower (in your marble bathroom) and bask in golden hour from your private, furnished balcony – you’ll either be able to spy the hotel’s Instagrammable gardens, classic Andalusian architecture, its picturesque pool or La Plaza, the swish dining area at the heart of the hotel.
You want to relax on holiday, sure, but you’re not letting your fitness routine slip. At Nobu Hotel Marbella, first-class sports facilities are provided for anyone wanting to dial up the pace. The nearby (and locally prestigious) Puente Romano Tennis Club has ten courts and offers on-demand lessons. Guests can also access two golf courses, one of which – the Marbella Club Golf Course – has views of Gibraltar and the African coastline in the distance. Prefer your workout on the wild side? Work up a sweat in the jungle at a new, open-air gym, set in lush, sub-tropical grounds.
Don’t be fooled by the whiff of celebrity in the air, Nobu Hotel Marbella is an unpretentious destination where the whole family can relax and unwind. Sweeping, sandy beaches are always ideal for family fun, but your youngsters will also happily wave you off once they’ve caught a glimpse of La Casita Club, which has outstanding facilities including a heated swimming pool and a programme of exciting activities designed for all ages. Best of all? Your offspring can seriously impress you once you’re all back home thanks to some beginner sushi lessons run by leading Nobu chefs.
