Marbella Heights Hotel: Balinese style and Mediterranean comforts

Discovering luxury from a stay abroad can mean many things: opulent design, indulgent amenities or the mere pleasure of peaceful tranquillity. Set amongst the rolling hills, olive groves and rugged mountains of Andalucía, The Marbella Heights Hotel uniquely combines all three, creating a divine recipe for all luxury-lovers. With rose-coloured stone and terracotta turrets, this small boutique is Marbella’s luxurious echo (albeit a much smaller one) of the grand Alhambra Palace. However, rather than being dwarfed by design, the cherry atop of this decadent ice cream is that Marbella Heights offers a comfortable yet exclusive stay. With only five suites available, the fusion of Balinese style and Mediterranean comforts makes this boutique among the best in Marbella. Just a short car journey from the historic town of Marbella and the vibrant marina of Puerto Banus, Marbella Heights Hotel is ideally located. Whilst bordered by beaches and nightlife, this charming hotel offers a tranquil escape from these budding tourist districts. Set within the stunning scenery of a lush Mediterranean valley this boutique is run by a charming and charismatic family, there to attend to your every need. Exuding Southeast Asian and Balinese flair orchids, Balinese sculptures and far-eastern paintings are stylishly positioned throughout the five suites to add delicate touches from the orient. Fused with Mediterranean comforts, the soft hum of the cicadas and the cool ocean breeze can be admired from the private balconies of The Java, Sayan and Khao Lak rooms that overlook the glistening Mediterranean Sea. For a different vantage point, the lower-level Pantai room faces the luscious garden grounds. With an abundance of amenities including climate control, satellite TV, a DVD and CD player, a mini-bar and Wi-Fi access, there is plenty of opportunity for relaxation. What better way to unwind than in a bubbling Jacuzzi bath or hydro-massage shower? With the opportunity for both in the suites’ opulent marble bathrooms, you will be spoilt for choice. For those who search for the cream of the crop when it comes to luxury, the Mandara master suite is the only room for you. Closer to an apartment than a suite, the luxurious living area, four-poster bed, walk-in-wardrobe, bathroom suite and expansive terrace is fit for a Balinese King and Queen. Delving into a continental or full English breakfast from the comfort of your own private balcony can only be described as the ultimate holiday treat. With other facilities including an on-site gym and fitness centre, a summer terrace, an outdoor pool and Jacuzzi and vintage wine cellar, there is little need to stray far from this fusion hotel. If you are a keen golfer however, you may be tempted away by the Rio Real Golf club situated in the valley directly beneath this hilltop hotel. In a fusion of Balinese style and Mediterranean comforts, this unique boutique provides one of the most luxurious, tranquil and personal stays around; the ultimate relaxing retreat from which to go forth and explore Spain’s vibrant and historic Andalucian region.

  1. Has anyone been on one of those MyVerdure trips? The Tuscany one looks right up my alley, but I don’t know anyone who’s gone.
