More About Marbella Club, Andalusia’s most iconic beach resort
Home to one of Europe’s most extensive and creative Kids Clubs, the Marbella Club offers an enchanting 5,000 square metre utopia for children set in the grounds of Prince Alfonso’s original family home. This converted farmhouse is where the magic of the Marbella Club originated and now provides a wholesome wonderland for children to get inspired and be creative. Group activities range from gazpacho-making and gardening to flamenco-yoga, archery, art upcycling and perfume making – all infused with the resort’s overarching ‘back-to-basics’ philosophy.
Sitting under La Concha mountain, the Marbella Club enjoys a unique microclimate making it a destination of year-round travel that’s ripe for activities such as hiking, cycling, horse-riding, tennis, golf and even skiing at its sister hotel El Lodge in the Sierra Nevada. And with over 60 years under its belt, the Marbella Club offers guests unrivalled access to the hidden treasures of Andalusian culture and cuisine from the hand-painted ceramics to locally sourced products.
Activities aside, the real allure of the Marbella Club lies in its boundless charm and the lively spirit that has evolved organically over time. It’s no surprise then to see three generations of families happily holidaying together without compromise; a testament to the owners’ commitment to maintaining the magic of its past whilst subtly innovating to meet the expectations of the modern traveller.
