Nobu Hotel Marbella
What it is
A party-ready respite with a Six Senses Spa, three pools and an unbeatable tennis club.
What it isn't
Directly on the beach. But the two block walk to the sand is so photogenic—red tiled roofs galore—you won’t care a whit.
What we think
When you learn that Robert De Niro himself co-owns Nobu Hotels, their Oscar worthy interiors make perfect sense. Most guests are here to let loose and soak up some sun, so the rooms are tailor-made for pure chillaxing: swathed in neutrals and blonde woods, with rain showers in the marble-lined bathrooms; private terraces; loaner tablets and—of course—mini bars stocked to party. Of course, in a hotel whose namesake is sushi star chef Nobu Matsuhisa, the restaurants are on point (and you’ll have VIP access, as a guest). Belly up to the sushi bar or hit the terrace for bluefin toro tartar with caviar, lobster shiitake salad with spicy lemon dressing and—swoon—lobster ceviche on butter lettuce. We get that this is a beach trip, but it’s worth ruining any semblance of swimsuit body you have with a dessert of passion fruit brûlée with coconut ice cream. It is, in a word, divine.
You're here because
They know how to live it up. Turn-down service includes a frothy cocktail—in essence, a pre-game for the long, fun night ahead; for the morning after, you’ll find electrolyte mocktails at the pool bar.
After a few days of dancing until dawn, you need a bit of a break, and the Six Senses Spa is the stuff dreams are made of, with a hammam, herbal steam room, and cold plunge pools. Because this trip has reminded you of how wealthy you are—in both health and vacation days—you opt for the 24K gold age-defying facial, and feel your skin take on the aura of royalty.
