During the resort’s opening ceremony [on 20 May 2022], Henri Giscard d’Estaing, Club Med’s President and CEO, shared his sentiments about the brand’s continued growth.
“Today, we are proud to return to Andalusia, one of the most attractive tourist destinations in Europe, with a new premium resort, Club Med Magna Marbella, which perfectly showcases what Club Med has become today after major changes in the last 20 years – a premium, ‘glocal’, happy digital brand aiming to develop a more sustainable tourism,” Giscard said.
Nestled at the foot of the Sierra Blanca and spread across 14 hectares of colourful gardens and terraces, the property was designed with an indoor-outdoor concept that is married with vibrant décor inspired by Marbella’s art, culture, and nature. A variety of accommodations, including 485 guestrooms, are ideal for every type of traveller from families and couples to solo travelers and large groups. Each Deluxe, Superior, and Family Suite exudes playful ambiance inspired by the region and its surrounding scenery.
The resort’s two restaurants and three bars offer unlimited culinary experiences thoughtfully curated to showcase the local food and drink of the region. The main restaurant, Suenos, is at the heart of the resort while the Tierra Gourmet Lounge welcomes guests all day long with a lively bar, wine cellar, and gourmet snack bar ideal for Spanish wine tastings, happy hour, live music, and tapas.
On-site, guests have more than 25 sports and activities to participate in at Club Med Magna Marbella, like Zen yoga, aerial fitness, golf, flying trapeze, archery, beach volleyball, and paddle tennis (native to Marbella). Guests can also take a dip in one of five pools including an indoor freshwater pool, the main lagoon pool, an adults-exclusive Zen pool, a dedicated kids pool for the Children’s Clubs, and a family-friendly water park area.
For those looking to unwind, the resort’s wellness area includes a Club Med Spa by CINQ MONDES complete with a steam room, 14 treatment rooms, and an exclusive indoor-outdoor relaxation room for added privacy.
