Marbella's Exclusive Yacht & Beach Clubs

Ah Marbella... known for a long time as the secret getaway of the rich and famous, seeking seaside respite and intensive detoxification plans just in time for summer. While this charming resort is a renowned playground for those in the know, it is also indulgent by default for visitors looking to bask, bathe and skip the detox to enjoy Spanish cuisine in style.

Spain’s famous Costa del Sol is a seaside destination and resort where you will, in fact, find the sun and luxury living, matched by a magnificent natural setting of dramatic mountains and spectacular, long beaches. Marbella makes for an excellent vacation spot for the weekend or a week-long getaway, and the year-round mild climate, impeccable gastronomy, and exclusive beach clubs is where the magic continues far beyond midnight.

Marbella Charter

The Marina Marbella Group can arrange a private yacht for a group of friends or family, while couples and small groups can join a scheduled charter, limited to 126 people. Sail away for the day to destress, hear the call of the dolphins, and dine on the deck with a barbeque and drinks until the sunset. The company's 'Pleasure Cruise' is held on luxurious and fully serviced yachts so guests get an authentic taste of Spanish hospitality and a chance to experience the Mediterranean on a whole new level. If you are looking to arrange a day at sea for a large group, ask for the Yacht Heesen 40M as it is great for 12 people and can be arranged for the entire day. Vessels for private charter are also available, accommodating all budgets and group sizes.

Nikki Beach

The default mode at Nikki Beach comprises your most fashionable pool party look and champagne flowing from noon onwards. This was the first beach club to combine the elements of music, dining, entertainment, fashion, film, and art into one. The sky is pretty much the limit, and it's high as you very well know. Everything that you might expect from an exclusive beach club can be found here, including a commitment to service by skilled staff around the clock. Check in for lunch and extend the experience until evening when Nikki Beach really comes to life, as it is one of Marbella’s most popular nightlife landmarks. Nikki Beach is only open during the summer months, so plan accordingly.

La Sala By The Sea

La Sala by the Sea draws its inspiration from the exotic far East. This glamourous beach club is atmospheric and appealing, attracting the young traveller and the mature diner alike. Offering three tropical ‘salas,’ one can enjoy a stunning fresh seafood platter, Thai fusion cuisine or the option to sip frozen cocktails on one of the pool beds in the sun, just as a true VIP would. This tropical oasis is impressive with its views overlooking golden sands and shimmering sea, and a magnet for celebrities and discerning clientele.
