Set amidst expanses of rolling hills overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, Anantara Villa Padierna Palace Benahavis Marbella Resort is a tranquil oasis of historic allure on Spain’s Southern coast. Boasting three world class golf courses, an impressive Anantara Spa, Club de Mar private beach club, expansive Romanesque event spaces and numerous gastronomic outlets, Anantara’s first property in Spain combines every element into palatial luxury on the Andalusian coast.

Anantara Villa Padierna Palace marries a unique palazzo-style setting with service and experiences that showcase the best of Spanish cuisine, culture and history, ensuring the property is a true golf, spa and gastronomic destination resort. Designed by British architect, Ed Gilbert, Anantara Villa Padierna Palace offers 132 guest rooms, suites and pool villas. Each of the nine luxurious one and two bedroom villas is uniquely designed for guests seeking added privacy, with dedicated butler service and a private pool. A stunning garden swimming pool, ensconced in stylish cypress and palm trees, is the centrepiece of the picturesque grounds.   

A gallery hotel, Anantara Villa Padierna Palace is filled with more than 1,200 original artworks – an eclectic mix of paintings, sculptures and artefacts, all thoughtfully displayed throughout the expansive grounds and lush gardens. All of the villas and many guest rooms are enhanced with large private terraces, overlooking manicured golf courses and sea views beyond. On a clear day, the mountains of Morocco can be spotted on the horizon. Frequented by celebrities, royalty and First Ladies alike, the latest addition to Anantara’s portfolio offers traditional Spanish service with all the trappings of modern luxury for a home away from home. 

Putting Anantara Villa Padierna Palace firmly on the map as a gastronomic destination resort, the property’s impressive restaurant and bar offering is second to none, with something to suit every taste and occasion. Spain’s well known 99 Sushi Bar & Restaurant has a new outlet at the property and Spanish two Michelin star chef Paco Roncero will be launching his new concept restaurant – O by Paco Roncero – during the month of July. Diego Cabrera, famed as one of the World’s 50 Best Mixologists, will also be adding some flare to Eddy’s Bar at the hotel. In addition, guests can enjoy the beach at Club de Mar Beach Club, with its Champagne and oyster bar and resident DJs. Anantara’s signature Dining by Design exudes romance in wisteria canopied private courtyards or al fresco dining in a starlit Roman amphitheatre. 

Palatial settings and distinguished practitioners combine to create the Anantara Spa. Inspired by the fabled Roman Baths, the spa features 10 specialised treatment rooms, in addition to an extensive hydrotherapy circuit with dedicated rooms, a Hammam, aromatherapy steam rooms and relaxation areas. Luxurious marble is floodlit by skylights, creating pillars of natural light which illuminate the 21,000 sq ft space.
