Luxury Marbella Holidays

Sunshine, celebrities and super-yachts

Marbella

Marbella is where you do the Mediterranean in style. This glam resort is the jewel in the Costa del Sol's holiday crown, so it's no surprise that it's a playground for the rich and famous.

The marina is a hot spot for sitting in quayside cafes, gazing out at the glossy white yachts and celeb-spotting. When the sun goes down, the famous Golden Mile comes alive with a string of chic restaurants, hotels and exclusive clubs that stretch all the way to neighbouring Puerto Banus.

The sweeping palm-lined beaches are the perfect place to work on your tan  the best way to enjoy them is at one of the ultra-exclusive beach clubs, where you can relax, drink and dine in style.

Marbella's charming old town is one of the prettiest in Andalucia, with whitewashed buildings and narrow winding streets dotted with tapas bars and upmarket boutiques. At its heart is Plaza de los Naranjos, a classic Andalucian plaza with a cosmopolitan flair where locals and celebrities rub shoulders over tapas.

The Orange Square (Plaza de los Naranjos) is a hub for beautiful restaurants in the old town and a lovely place to stop for a drink.

Flight Information

Transfer time from Malaga airport to Marbella is approximately 45 minutes.

When to go

With a name that translates as the Sunshine Coast, it’s no surprise that this slice of Spain gets over 300 days of sun a year. Things start to heat up in the spring, with temperatures nudging the 20s, while in the height of summer, the mercury often tops 30°C.

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Spain.

Tipping

Restaurant bills include a service charge by law in Spain, so whether you choose to tip further is up to you. If you enjoyed the meal and service, it is customary to leave 5-10%. Hotel porters and maids will appreciate a small tip, and while taxi drivers don’t require a tip, it’s common to round up the fare.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Spain is Spanish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
