Where Would I Rather Be?

March 24th, 2010

I’d rather be at The Marbella Club Hotel in Marbella, Spain.

Listed in the Forbes Best Hotels in the World, The Marbella Club Hotel is a holiday home to wealthy European families, which come here year after year to relax, play golf, horse ride and use the Thalasso Spa.

I’ve holidayed in Marbella before, and I loved every second of it. It’s a beautiful city at the foot of the Benahavis mountains, right on the sea. The beaches are beautiful and clean, although during the peak months it can get really crowded and full of tourists, there is still a great happy vibe about the place.

The wealth is this city is ridiculous. The worlds wealthiest families all have a house here, it’s like the French Riviera, in Spain. The Beckhams have a mansion here – so that shows the calibre of families who live and holiday here.

The slender streets, busy bars and ritzy restaurants are full of men and women, both with obvious cosmetic surgery, excessive amounts of gold and diamonds, and more luxury performance vehicles then you have ever seen. I LOVE IT.

Back to The Marbella Club Hotel, it has one of the world’s best golf courses – Marbella is known for it’s immaculate golf courses. The beach front Hotel has 84 rooms and 37 elegant suites set amongst lush gardens designed by owner, Prince Alfonso von Hohenlohe.

There are 14 Andalucían-style villas, with their own divine gardens and pools; giving the feeling and character of an authentic classic whitewashed village of Andalucía. It’s tranquil, spacious and intimate: absolute luxury.

I can’t wait to go back there in 2011. Till then, it’s where I’d rather be.
