WHAT WE LOVE...

One of a small chain of luxury hotels made famous by their namesake restaurant, Nobu Marbella combines Costa del Sol sunshine with a signature Japanese aesthetic. Occupying a cluster of rooms within the larger and more classic Puente Romano Beach Resort, this is a design-forward destination suited to couples in need of some high-end R&R. As well as a comprehensive culinary offer - there are 15 restaurants on site - the facilities are second to none. Spend lazy days relaxing on a daybed by the pool or in the Six Senses spa, and more active ones exploring the hotel's extensive sports facilities or the nearby coast. Everyone comes together each night at buzzy central hub, La Plaza, where people come to see and be seen.
