The Nobu brand has a lofty reputation and this Marbella outpost certainly delivers. Located on the exclusive residential strip known as the Golden Mile, this Asia-infused luxury complex offers a self-contained, adults-only experience that’s so good it might even keep you from the beach just a few minutes’ walk away. A deluxe spa, world-class sports facilities and some of the finest dining around also make it understandably popular with both spendy holidaymakers and well-heeled locals.

Formerly an aristocratic seaside hideaway, this summer finca – a ranch-style estate – has evolved into one of the most exclusive hotels and beach clubs in Marbella. The extensive grounds are lush with a cornucopia of colourful flora, and scattered among it are beautifully finished accommodations that range from romantic rooms to luxury family villas. A beach club offers chiringuito-style fresh seafood, under a thatched palapa overlooking the sand. There’s even a kids’ club at which you can drop the little ones while you indulge in the Thalasso Spa.

Tucked into a corner of the attractive old town, this typical Andalusian townhouse makes a perfect bolt hole for those looking to lose themselves among labyrinthine lanes and pretty plazas. Lush interiors mingle influences such as Moorish arches and renaissance flourishes, while ivy cascades down a marble stairwell and floors are carpeted in deep plum. Guest room decor sidesteps subtlety, too, most with a historical or classical theme.

The Puente Romano set the bar for luxury in Marbella when it opened in the late ‘70s, and it’s been one of the top hotels in the resort ever since. Designed in the style of an Andalusian village, it has flora-filled grounds stretching from the coastal highway to the golden sands of Nagüeles Beach. Sharing the same complex as Nobu, the hotel has some of the best dining in Marbella, while guest rooms are light-filled havens of contemporary chic.

    Overlooking the beach in swanky Puerto Banús, this upscale hotel ticks all the boxes for a high-end holiday.

    With themed pool parties, funky beach-vibe decor, and breezy adults-only environment, the Hotel Amare is an obvious favourite with younger, fun-loving couples. A beachfront setting puts it steps from the sea, while also being just a short stroll from the pretty old town centre. Live music and poolside DJ sessions add a real summer vibe, while those seeking a quieter moment can pamper in the hotel spa. Book a table right on the sand at Amàre Beach Club for fire-based entertainment with dinner.
