Nestled on the Costa del Sol, Hotel Villa Padierna Palace resides behind a stunning exterior and is set just steps from the Mediterranean Sea’s azure waters. Not for nothing was this hotel chosen by Michelle Obama as the ideal getaway: taking inspiration from the opulent palaces of Tuscany, it offers guests a no-holds-barred approach to luxury. Personal, attentive service and incredible facilities are housed in elegant surroundings and kissed with Spanish sunshine.
It’s time to sit back, cocktail in hand, and take a breather from 2012. Slide into serene swimming pools or simply soak in the sun on sandy beaches. For ultimate relaxation, the hotel’s award-winning Thermae Spa is an ideal retreat, with an indoor swimming pool, Greek sauna, plunge pool, Roman thermal baths and two Finnish saunas, as well as a plethora of luxurious treatments.
Active pursuits are abundant, with an extensive and well-equipped fitness centre, racquet club and three surrounding golf fields, and lessons from professionals on offer at the American Golf Academy. Spouses who’ve long tired of seeing their loved one’s swing can enjoy a workout in the fitness centre or a well-deserved cocktail in the Beach Club.
Sophisticated dining options abound at Villa Padierna Palace Marbella. Enjoy views of the Gibraltar and the African coastline alongside Spanish and international cuisine in La Loggia, or savour the gourmet creations of renowned chef Victor Taborda at La Veranda. Recline under shady trees at the poolside bar and terrace, or enjoy a traditional English atmosphere at Eddy’s Bar, complete with roaring fireplace and a selection of cigars and aged whiskies.
Works of Italian and Andalusian art and antiques from the owner’s private collection are complemented by views of the rolling gardens and golf course, sun-dappled swimming pool, shimmering sea or Roman amphitheatre in the guestrooms. Rooms, suites and villas are individually and meticulously decorated; beds are expanses of crisp white sheets saluted by majestic headboards, fresh flowers sit on antique tables, whilst fluffy bathrobes and luxury linens are discreet finishing touches to ensure guests feel truly at home.
This offer is not to be missed for those looking to escape the rain-soaked streets that so many of us call home. Imagine waking up to one of Hotel Villa Padierna Palace’s sun-dappled succulent breakfasts, or relaxing during a hot stone massage… All with an incredible 20% reduction, exclusively for members of Splendia.
