Nobu Hotel set to open inside Marbella's Puente Romano in 2018

It will initially have 49 suites for adults between 45 and 120 metres square, with plans to grow to 81 suites in 2019

Hot on the heels of the opening of Japanese restaurant Nobu in Marbella’s Puente Romano Hotel last week, bosses have been explaining their plans to open a Nobu hotel there next year.

The exclusive restaurants of Japanese chef Nobu Matsuhisa are well-known for their innovative, minimalist cuisine. Since 2013 Nobu has opened a series of boutique hotels to complement its brand in partnership with Hollywood actor Robert de Niro.

Madrid has urged local government to do more to remove unnecessary structures from beaches and keep stream beds clear of vegetation

The central government has said that work is over to clean up and restore sand on Costa del Sol beaches after winter and spring storm damage.

In total, 900,000 cubic metres of sand have been put back on the coast, either by moving it from other parts of the beach or bringing it in from outside.

Government officials explained this week that Marbella and Estepona have been the municipalities where most money has been spent, with each one receiving a million euros in beach-restoration funding.

New developments are being built on the Costa del Sol and a shortage of land in Marbella is benefiting Estepona and Benahavís

The Costa del Sol is still reflecting the ongoing recovery of the residential property market along the Spanish coasts, especially in Marbella, Manilva, Estepona and Mijas. Prices have risen most in the first two of these municipalities, according to the latest report by the Tinsa valuation agency: in Manilva property prices have gone up by 15 per cent, and in Marbella by 11.3 per cent during the first quarter of this year, compared with the same period in 2016.

The report also looks at the situation in the holiday property market in Spain, using official figures and local experience in 58 different areas. There was considerable optimism at the beginning of this year in some destinations, including the Costa del Sol, and that optimism has proven to be correct so far.

Arab investors, who bought the 466-room hotel in 2013, have partnered with the French luxury family holiday operator, who will now rename the property

One of Marbella’s original hotels from the 1970s is set for a 70-million renovation after being closed for over ten years.

The Hotel Don Miguel, behind the resort’s old town near the bus station, is set to reopen in 2019 after Arab investors, who bought the abandoned property in 2013 under the name Magna Hotels & Resorts, reached a deal with top French hotel operator, Club Med.

The agreement signed by the two institutions coincided with the second Broward College World Conference that was held in Marbella

The president of Broward College in Florida, J. David Armstrong Jr, and the founder of The American College in Spain (ACS), Melissa Butler, signed an agreement last Thursday that established the Marbella-based institution as an International Transfer Center of Broward College.

The signing of the agreement, which coincided with the second Broward College World Conference in the town, now means that students who enroll at ACS will be automatically enrolled at Broward College, allowing them to transfer directly to other universities in the United States after completing two years of a degree in Marbella.
