The Marbella Club welcomes new exclusive residencies and pop-ups from world-leading brands and industry trailblazers
Situated in the heart of Andalusia’s ‘Golden Mile’, Marbella Club has long been recognised as one’s of Europe’s most iconic resorts and summer jaunts since its inception in the Fifties. In a nod to its founder, Prince Alfonso van Hohenlohe, and his love for Mexico, the property will unveil a Mexican Riviera-inspired update this summer to its much-loved Beach Club. Other new additions to the property this summer include a brand-new Hair Spa in partnership with world-renowned Dr Barbara Sturm; and a number of residencies and pop-ups from some of the world’s leading fashion houses, from CHANEL to Louis Vuitton and Bottega Veneta.
Marbella’s Club’s sun-splashed Beach Club has been given an uplift just in time for the influx of summer travellers with the new look offering a nod to the Mexican Riviera’s famed town of Acapulco, which served as a playground for Hollywood stars and the world’s most elite in the 1950s. The Beach Club will feature hints of green and coral, with reimagined al fresco hangout areas, while the restaurant will change from buffet to a la carte. A new Raw Bar will serve refreshing seafood dishes such as ceviche, tiradito and oysters with live cooking demonstrations and spots to play backgammon, inspired by the renowned Slim Aarons photos that were captured during the Marbella Club’s golden days. A new cocktail menu will feature tropical classics such as Mai Tais and Piña Coladas served in iced Tiki glasses to be enjoyed under the shade of the Beach Club’s traditional Andalusian palapa.
With salty sea tough on the hair, the Marbella Club will launch a Hair Spa in partnership with world-renowned aesthetician Dr. Barbara Sturm, with a variety of therapies including a Revitalising Scalp Treatment, a Signature Sturm Glow and Super Anti-Aging Facial.
Legendary fashion maison, CHANEL has re-opened the doors to its seasonal boutique at the Marbella Club for the second year running. Until October 2022, shop the brand’s Spring / Summer Ready-to-Wear collection which is a tribute to the carefree 90’s. Later in the season, the boutique will host the 2021/2022 Métier d’art collection which celebrates the savoir-fair of CHANEL’s artisan partners. A dedicated Watches and Fine Jewellery section includes the timeless J12, Première and Boy-Friend Watches along with COCO RUSH Fine Jewellery collection.
One of Italy’s most coveted luxury fashion houses, Bottega Veneta has launched a pop-up running through to October featuring some of the brand’s most iconic signature handbags alongside the new resort collection. The mobile store will be located at the entrance of El Patio, the property’s laid-back courtyard restaurant and bar, the perfect spot for a cocktail or crisp glass of wine post retail therapy.
Love Brand & Co
Raising awareness for the Marbella Club’s ongoing seahorse repopulation project in partnership with conservation research centre Aula del Mar, the hotel has partnered with British resort-wear brand LOVE BRAND & Co. to launch a seahorse-inspired capsule collection. The exclusive collection will include male swim shorts for both adults and children, a unisex linen shirt and sarong, girls swimming bottoms, stylish Panama hat and hair scrunchie, all adorned with a unique seahorse print. The print has also been thoughtfully woven into the décor of the toes-in-the sand chiringuito, MC Beach, where throughout the summer a portion of all guest bills will go towards the seahorse repopulation project.
This summer, Marbella Club has launched a partnership with one of the hottest curated shopping platforms of the moment, Collagerie. Founder, Serena Hood visited the property a year ago and immediately fell in love, seeing a perfect synergy between the two brands. The first of its kind, the pop up sees a diligently curated selection of fashion and lifestyle brands from low and high price points. Items include silk painted sun hats by Spanish brand Romualda, colourful placements by Majorcan textile makers Teixitis Vicens which will sit alongside ceramics from British tableware brand, K.S Creative Pottery.
Embracing the Mediterranean this summer, luxury French fashion house Louis Vuitton launches a new pop-up boutique featuring the brand’s summer collection which includes a selection of men and women’s ready-to-wear shoes and accessories as well and some of the Maison’s emblematic handbags.
