METT HOTELS & RESORTS has revealed details of its second lifestyle resort which will open on the pristine Marbella-Estepona shoreline in July 2023. This is set to change the face of relaxed luxury travel in the region by responding to the needs of a new class of travellers seeking enriching social experiences within a stunning natural environment and incredible dining.
The beachfront 5-star lifestyle resort has been designed with connections and community at its core; destination, design, and dining have all been carefully selected to encourage conversations and social interaction with like-minded travellers who expect that little bit extra to ignite their experience.
When entering METT Hotel & Beach Resort Marbella – Estepona, guests are welcomed with an impressive lobby centred around an eight-metre olive tree designed to encourage social interaction amongst guests, whilst the brand’s signature scent, Bal Tropical by BOTANYC, creates an atmosphere of ease, reminding us of the Mediterranean Riviera.. Service style here and throughout is discreet yet precise and expectations are understood and satisfied. Each interaction comes with an open attitude that encourages enjoyment to flow as freely as the resort which slopes down towards the Azure Beach Pool and sea beyond. Sightlines are considered throughout to create a magnetic energy and sense of community.
Inspired by the balanced bliss of Mediterranean living, design blends with modern minimalism, easy living and Andalusian charm. Building materials and soft furnishings are chosen from natural, local, and sustainable resources wherever possible; expect elegant sea blues, warm natural wood, traditional terracotta tiles, relaxed linen fabrics and natural hand-woven accessories. The result: a sophisticated yet casual resort.
The 249 rooms and suites are designed to be beautiful yet functional all with garden, sea, or pool-facing views. For those who wish to be at the heart of the conversation, Lifestyle Pool Rooms can be booked in advance which have direct access to the Azure Beach Pool, providing immediate access to the hub of the resort.
Dining is at the heart of the METT experience, and it has sculpted its philosophy with pleasure and memories in mind; believing that some of life’s best moments are had whilst enjoying excellent food with excellent people. The brand gives as much attention to the food and drink as the design and flow of its space to encourage conversation between guests and staff so breakfast can turn into lunch with a new group of friends. The main hotel restaurant is Isola Ristorante Italiano – a modern Italian restaurant serving breakfast and a la carte dinner. The stunning Ammos restaurant will serve the freshest al fresco Greek food while overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and Azure Beach brings all the experiences alive, sitting in the middle of the Resort and serving pool and beach side international favourites. For those looking to taste some of Spain’s best tapas alongside a fine selection of wines, the elegant El Bar De Lola is the place to be.
In addition, RAISE Fitness & Wellness will offer more than an onsite state-of-the-art gym, but rather an inclusive and inviting fitness community where guests feel a sense of belonging. Unlike other gyms, the mood is bright, simple, and elegant and the flow is seamless. The atmosphere is never too loud or aggressive nor too dull or quiet creating an environment of compassion and acceptance.
Spread across 500 sqm the Moi spa is designed to soothe, pamper and de-stress. Skilled therapists will help select the perfect treatment from traditional massage and body treatments to holistic treatments to boost physical and mental health with pool side cabanas available for tandem treatments with friends new or old.
Antonio Gonzalez, CEO, Sunset Hospitality Group says: “We are thrilled to bring the METT brand to the Costa del Sol. It is an amazing location and fits perfectly with the ethos of our brand. We are looking forward to welcoming guests and continuing to spread the METT spirit following the success of METT Hotel & Beach Resort Bodrum.”
The METT Hotel & Beach Resort Marbella – Estepona is ideally located just 45 minutes from Malaga Airport and 40 minutes from Gibraltar airport, a convenient 14 kilometres from Marbella’s picturesque town centre, 13 kilometres from the historical Estepona and just 9 kilometres from Puerto Banus.
