Our Stay at Nobu Hotel Marbella


I’m writing this post hours after returning home from the loveliest 4 day break in Marbella . We had 2 days of glorious sunshine and 2 days of thunderous rain, but when you’re staying in a place as beautiful as Nobu Hotel, the weather really doesn’t matter.
(Luckily I took all my photos on the first day when it was way too hot to sunbathe!)

Nobu is a Japanese chain of restaurants and hotels, and it’s clear that Japanese design is a heavy influence throughout the interiors. The rooms are bright, contemporary spaces with clean lines and a minimalistic-ryokan feel. This is continued through the rest of the hotel; with lots of wooden features, natural influences and an overall serene feeling.
The retro Hollywood memorabilia scattered throughout the lobby gives a really nice edge to the space, this against the Japanese interiors makes for a perfect reflection of the unity of Nobu Matsuhisa and Robert DiNiro.

 Marble flooring, wooden accents and neutral tones create a serene, natural space overlooking Puente Romano’s lively La Plaza.

The hotel is situated within the beautiful beach resort of Puente Romano. There are 13 bars & restaurants as well as tennis courts, a spa, three swimming pools, a golf course, direct beach access and lots more - all scattered around enchanting botanical gardens.

We had an amazing time during our stay at Nobu Hotel Marbella, we enjoyed the resort so much that we barely even left it. Every day there is something new to try, whether it be a new activity, a new restaurant or even visiting the beautiful interior stores which obviously is the most exciting part!
You can find lots more details and images of Nobu Hotel and Puente Romano on their websites (linked).

Have a lovely weekend!
