Mandarin Expands in Spain


Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group is developing a property in Marbella, set to open in 2010.

The hotel will showcase views of the Mediterranean, the Rock of Gibraltar and the nearby Moroccan coast. The 153-room property also will feature 19 villas and 61 luxury residential apartments, as well as a Presidential Suite. At their smallest, guest rooms will be 60 square meters (646 square feet) and outdoor additions to villas will include private gardens, terraces and plunge pools. Facilities include seven restaurants and bars, The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, a private beach club and neighboring golf courses available for guests.

“It is exciting to be working with Mandarin Oriental on creating one of Europe’s most exclusive resort and residential hideaways,” said Habib Bou-Habib, chairman of Las Colinas de Marbella, the company developing the property. “For many decades, the area has been a magnet for sophisticated travelers and the extraordinary facilities that this development will offer will appeal to those in search of tranquility, serenity and luxury.” Visit
