Overview

A five-star wellness retreat near Marbella, with healthy breakfast, an aloe welcome drink and more

The Lowdown

Relax and rejuvenate at this new wellness destination, set on a beach between Marbella and Estepona. With its creamy Mediterranean-inspired architecture and décor – think gleaming marble floors and sparkling chandeliers – all is light, bright and positive. Here in this glamorous space where elegance and comfort meet cutting-edge design, getting healthy seems effortless. A gently sloping tree-filled garden and lawn runs directly down to the sand, and there’s a tempting outdoor pool to swim in.
The property is part of the renowned Naturhouse Group, which certainly knows how to blend health and detox programs perfectly, while offering warm hospitality and luxury. Your sumptuously appointed room with lush views is a retreat in itself. There are two spas – one follows the Naturhouse holistic principles of balance and healing; the other provides the ultimate in head-to-toe pampering. Standards are equally high in the restaurant, set up by twice-Michelin-starred chef Andoni Luis Aduriz to offer tasty, healthy gourmet cuisine. Recent glittering reviews of this hotel include praise from Condé Nast Traveller – we’re sure more will follow.

Rooms

Deluxe Garden View rooms are gentle havens of cream and pastels, with private balconies or terraces. En-suite bathrooms come with plenty of designer amenities, so you can continue to pamper yourself within the intimacy of your abode.

Dining

The hotel is proud to have worked with twice-Michelin-starred Basque chef Andoni Luis Aduriz, whose highly praised Mugaritz restaurant in Spain is renowned for its innovative nutritional cuisine (honors include being listed 10th in Restaurant Magazine’s World 50 Best Restaurants). Expect healthy fare that tastes as good as it looks.

Spa

The area’s first Healthouse Spa is a wellness center that covers an impressive 32,000 sq. ft., offering the latest in exclusive treatments from trained experts. Facilities include a swimming lane, a vitality pool with a Jacuzzi, warm and cold caves, a salt and snow cabin, a sauna and a steam bath. Beauty and massage treatments are offered in the more intimate Elikum Spa.

Location

The hotel is located right on the beach (in its old incarnation it was Las Dunas, when hotels were allowed to be built right near the sands). It’s a mere 25-minute drive to the charms of Marbella old town. The glitz and glamour of the chic Puerto Banus marina is close by, and day trips can take you to the lovely hillside villages of Mijas, Benalmádena, Coín or Benahavis. Málaga is under an hour by car, with Ronda just a little further on.

gorgeous Mediterranean escape
katherine f

What a delight to find this gorgeous waterfront luxury hotel! It is perfectly and tastefully appointed, the staff is uniformly friendly and the restaurant "Felix" served an elegant, delicious dinner, The only regret is that we could not stay longer.

Very disappointing for a 5 star hotel.
Jocarreira83

The rooms are very good (5 star for the rooms) breakfast is very low (disappointing) rating it looks like a 3 star hotel, after 10h30pm you will not be able to have food (room service) or Drink this is not of a 5 star hotel standard. Felix restaurant it is very very good. Keep in mind that the hotel doesn't have anyone to help with luggage. The people on the reception are very nice and they will TRY to help in every aspect. But still missing the 5th star.

Tea in a slice of heaven

Stumbled upon this exquisite slice of heaven!
It was so enchanting we ended up having tea in the garden. I can’t believe anyone would have a single bad thing to say about this place it literally is divine and the staff were relaxed, helpful and friendly. particularly our waiter at the restaurant who brought me honey & gifted us biscuits with a warm smile. The manicured gardens overlooking the Mediterranean left us quite speechless and delighted with ourselves! I felt like I was on Lake Garda one of my favourite places. This place has literally changed my entire perspective on Spain!
