Puente Romano, the embodiment of Marbella glamour

Callum Swan, December 2019 | Areas - Our view

The Puente Romano is a Marbella institution, an icon, and landmark of the famous Golden Mile. It is the younger sister hotel of the Marbella Club Hotel, where the legend of Marbella as a global luxury destination began. This reputation was already well-established by 1979 when the Puente Romano opened its doors in a prime beachside position alongside the Golden Mile.

The birthplace of Marbella glamour

Since then, the two resort hotels have complemented one another as they entertain discerning guests from around the world. The latter include royalty, aristocracy, business tycoons, sportsmen, heads of state, Hollywood actors and many other celebrities, as well as those who simply enjoy quality and style in refined surroundings. In this sense, the Puente Romano embodies Marbella.

The Puente Romano is different from many other luxurious resorts because it feels more like a sprawling Mediterranean village than a typical hotel complex. For one thing, it is low-rise, spread out between lush gardens and feels like a private villa. The resort hotel’s name is derived from a two-thousand-year-old bridge that once connected this spot with Rome, at the heart of the Roman Empire.


The setting is the finest address in Marbella, on the beachside of the famous 6,5-kilometre palm-lined avenue that connects Marbella town and Puerto Banús. As such, the Puente Romano has shopping, dining, golf, horse riding, nautical sports and a host of other activities and services on its doorstep – quite apart from the five-star deluxe amenities of the resort itself.
