Spain is the most popular holiday destination for Britons year after year. From cool cities like Barcelona and Valencia, to beachside locations such as Marbella and San Sebastian, UK holidaymakers can’t get enough. But for now, a holiday there is a distant dream – so until the Government relax travel restrictions, a delicious cocktail from one of the best bars in the country will have to do.
While Barcelona, Madrid, Seville and Valencia are well known Spanish weekend break destinations, Marbella is not necessarily thought of that way.
However, a short break is a fantastic way to get a taste of the area and rather like Spain’s much-loved tapas, try a little bit of everything.
Visitors to Marbella have traditionally stayed in villas, but now finally there is a true 5* luxury offering in the area for those who prefer the convenience of a hotel – the luxury beachfront Kempinski Hotel Bahia.
And what a luxury! Exotic parrots greet guests on arrival, and refreshing tea is served while check in is processed.
Enjoy lunch at Spiler Beach Club, something of a hotspot in the area. Singers croon soft jazz as you enjoy a lunch of seafood, salads and cocktails looking over the beach.
Rooms are large, with whirlpool batsh and standalone showers in the bathroom.
They are also well designed to enjoy the sunshine, with terraces and balconys offering seating to watch the sun go down on.
And while Britons can’t get there just yet, the Frankie & Rita is the perfect way to get a taste of the hotel now.
