DESTINATION


I am thrilled we chose Marbella for our Essence of Luxury Travel show 2020.

Marbella has an incredibly diverse history, with different cultures having left their mark throughout the region.

While there have been remains found dating as far back as the Paleolithic age, there are also a number of substantial Roman, Arabic and Christian remains in the historic Old Town, which have been magnificently preserved.

Marbella thrived as an agricultural and fishing settlement from the 16th century, but it wasn’t much later until the mid-1950s when figures like Ricardo Soriano and, followed by the Hohenlohe, Goizueta, or Coca families, invested in turning Marbella into a symbol of quality tourism. These sudden changes in the area’s economy also altered its inhabitants’ lifestyle.

Led by many aristocratic families that settled in the area, Marbella was part of the route frequented by the international intellectual jet set. World-renowned figures like Liza Minnelli or Brigitte Bardot were attracted to Marbella’s year-round mild climate and the sense of freedom, far from the spotlight.

A tight-knit community of bohemian artists and writers, like Jean Cocteau, Jean Marais, Edgar Neville Romrée, Ana de Pombo or Luis Escobar also found refuge in the area’s beaches, and white-washed buildings, where inspiration flowed naturally.

Marbella is one of the most attractive locations for the international community, which effortless blends with the locals to enjoy the biggest concentration of golf courses in all of Europe, upscale beach clubs and a coveted cultural offering. And, at less than two-hours-distance from major cities like Granada, Seville and Cordoba, Marbella is the perfect home base for the busy traveller.

Today, Marbella is still host to international artists like Antonio Banderas or Rod Stewart and Sean Connery, though, more importantly, the town has rightfully become the go-to destination for an exquisite blend of traditional Andalusian gastronomy, vibrant nightlife and outdoor leisure without losing sight of an authentic Spanish experience.

Looking forward to seeing you in Marbella,


Quentin Desurmont
