This luxury beach hotel has been designed to recreate the character and charm of an Andalusian beachfront village, where the blue skies and the majestic Mediterranean Sea take centre stage.
Located in the heart of Marbella's Golden Mile, Puente Romano is named after the ancient Roman bridge at the centre of its lush sub-tropical gardens. The resort first opened in 1979 and has been a fashionable getaway ever since, not surprising given its unique comfortable year round temperatures safeguarded by the Sierra Blanca.
Luxury accommodation is decorated in a classic Mediterranean style with all the spacious rooms and suites benefitting from large private terraces. Check out the Imperial Suite with its wrap-around terrace and sweeping views of mountains and sea. All rooms come with comfortable bathrooms and marble floors and the usual luxury mod cons.
With eight restaurants to choose from you won’t go hungry. Michelin-star chef, Dani Garcia, thinks outside the box in the restaurant of his namesake, with an intriguing tasting menu. Open in high season, Del Mar specialises in fresh fish and seafood on the beach. There’s also the Sea Grill, right by the pool and with its own tandoori oven; Serafina, overlooking the gardens and ancient Roman bridge; Suite, the hotel’s moodily lit Asian-fusion restaurant that becomes a hangout for hip locals after midnight; Namazake, serving up spectacular sushi; and Rachel's serving organic healthy breakfasts and light meals.
Bar Cascada is at the heart of the hotel and the place to head to for cocktails, especially its large terrace on warm summer nights.
Directly on the beach with three swimming pools, a state-of-the-art fitness centre and world famous tennis club, Puente Romano is a sporting paradise with an extensive selection of tennis courts to choose from as well as classes such as yoga and pilates. Guests enjoy exclusive access to the Marbella Club Golf Resort, the Dave Thomas-designed championship course and El Higueral, one of the most scenic courses on the coast.
