Set back from the beach, the 5 star Puente Romano Beach Resort & Spa is located at the heart of Marbella's Golden Mile, equidistance (5 mins drive or 30 minutes walk along the boardwalk ) between Puerto Banus and Marbella town. Malaga Airport is only 35 minutes away and is very well served with frequent flights from UK Airports. You can choose to pick up a rental car from the airport or a door to door private transfer can be arranged.
If you are looking for escape and relaxation, enjoy one of three outdoor pools set amidst the resort which has replicated the architecture of a picturesque Andalusian village. The beach facilities are set across from the promenade, which stretches the length of the areas coastline, seventeen kilometres in total along the Costa del Sol. Towels are provided for the beds in a specific area, although it is a public beach. If it is a clear day there is an incredible view of the tip of Andalucía and Gibraltar with the added sight of the distance haze of Morocco, which is only eight nautical miles across from the strait of Gibraltar.
For some serious pampering I’d recommend a treatment or two at the fabulous Six Senses spa or book one of the Wellness Packages such as the yogic detox programme. The hotel also offers complimentary yoga lessons with a vey talented Kundalini yoga teacher, Natalia.
If you’re feeling more active, the Tennis Club facilities are internationally known as one of the best in Southern Europe with 10 courts, 8 clay courts and 2 hard (plexipave) courts. The central court can seat approximately 2,500 people. The Club also has 4 paddle tennis courts. If golf is your thing, just 20 minutes away, by car, in the Benahaví¬s Mountains is the Marbella Club Golf Course a magnificent 18-hole private golf course that enjoys a privileged location, with its spectacular views to the mountains, the Mediterranean Sea, the African coast and the Rock of Gibraltar. Designed by veteran creative Dave Thomas, this golf course is a constant challenge, both for amateur and experienced golfers. Guests of Puente Romano Beach Resort & Spa have the privilege to enjoy the exclusive benefit of complimentary green fees (per person and stay) and shuttle service to the Marbella Club Golf Course throughout their stay.
The start to the day at breakfast is a pleasurable affair that is worthy of the hotels five star rating alone. In fact the dining options are varied and comprehensive. Plaza Village, has five different settings where you can enjoy dishes from all over the world., with the added bonus of a truly impressive two star Michelin restaurant from chef Dani Garcia. A fairy tale of a dining setting, with its ambient intimacy of greenery and low lighting coupled with the vista of an open kitchen to view and explore. Dani Garcia offers both a tasting menu and à la carte. The addition of a gluten free café Celicioso is a bonus for coeliac or people choosing to go gluten free. However it may not be helpful to pop into the gorgeous Les Deux if you are watching your waistline!
There are a wide selection of rooms from double, suites, villas and specific family rooms located in 27 three storey buildings set amidst delightful 55,000m2 gardens. In addition to family rooms, families also benefit from a free Kids Club for guests and in the summer there is a children’s pool where our small friends also have their special space, where they may enjoy a good plunge and their favorite games.
The combination of location and weather add to the significant factor of Puente Romano being a fabulous destination for the discerning traveller.
