Anantara opens first Spanish resort on Andalusian coast

by Jane Kitchen | 22 Jul 2019

Anantara has opened its first resort in Spain, the Anantara Villa Padierna Palace Benahavis Marbella Resort, which boasts a 21,000sq ft spa inspired by the fabled Roman Baths.

Located on Spain’s Southern coast, Anantara Villa Padierna Palace has been designed by British architect Ed Gilbert, and includes 132 guest rooms, suites and pool villas. A garden swimming pool, ensconced in stylish cypress and palm trees, is the centrepiece of the picturesque grounds.

A gallery hotel, Anantara Villa Padierna Palace is filled with more than 1,200 original artworks – an eclectic mix of paintings, sculptures and artefacts.

The Anantara Spa includes 10 specialised treatment rooms along with an extensive hydrotherapy circuit, which features dedicated rooms, a hammam, aromatherapy steam rooms and relaxation areas.

The spa offers an array of medical beauty treatments, administered by expert therapists trained in the latest medical wellness. The spa also offers bespoke care and attention from a dedicated team of doctors and healthcare professionals equipped with the latest technology and first class facilities.

After hiking in the Sierra las Nievas mountain range, guests can enjoy private meditation sessions or Pilates on sun-dappled terraces. Indigenous signature treatments and specially tailored golf massages are also available.

One-to-one sessions with alternative therapists, experts in holistic healing and nutritionists are available to expand and deepen the journey into Andalusian wellness.
