Golden Mile glamour in the shadow of the Marbella Club
A reputation for quality and refinement is hard to establish and even harder to maintain. Those brands and establishments that do achieve this over a long period of time gradually become legendary in their own right, their very names representing values of quality, luxury, sophistication and distinction. In Marbella, the iconic Marbella Club Hotel is perhaps the finest example of this – so much so, in fact, that it is an internationally renowned deluxe hotel associated with the jet set glamour and fine living that first put Marbella on the map in the 1950s.
The Marbella Club is an integral part of this evolution of glamour and style, which has evolved through the generations to the present moment. Though fully up to date in its offering and appeal, it has maintained its cherished qualities and remains not just a landmark of Marbella but one whose very name evokes the spirit of refined elegance and the best things in life. The unmistaken star of the Golden Mile – that famous palm-lined avenue that connects Marbella town and Puerto Banús – the Marbella Club is a beacon of quality that also adds lustre to the exclusive residential areas its borders, such as Santa Margarita, Santa Petronila, Las Torres del Marbella Club and Los Verdiales.
The finest address
Indeed, the Golden Mile is quite simply the finest address in Marbella – not an accolade that is easily achieved, but one that is enhanced by the beachside villas, penthouses and mansions whose manicured lawns and tropical gardens lead straight on to the coastal pathway, sandy beaches and exclusive beach clubs fronting the Mediterranean shore. Such homes complete the reputation of the Golden Mile as one of the most luxurious residential addresses in Europe. In addition to ultra-luxurious apartments and penthouses set within exclusive communities surrounded by lush subtropical gardens, the beachside section of the Golden Mile is also home to grand luxurious villas located in select, private streets.
The area on the inland side of the road is more accessible, offering a broader range of prices and also including apartments, townhouses and villas in a wide variety of settings and architectural styles. It incorporates such areas as the idyllic Mediterranean village ambience of La Virginia, the elegance of the hillside gated community of Sierra Blanca, the private luxury of Cascada de Camoján and the modern villas and renovation opportunities of Nagüeles. Though it incorporates these varied areas the Golden Mile remains a very special address, and one imbued with the timeless prestige of the Marbella Club.
