The Golden Mile, everything else is a compromise


When it comes to luxury Mediterranean resorts, Marbella stands out among the best, making its iconic top ad-dress – the Golden Mile – one of the very finest abodes in Europe.

At the heart of Marbella is a long, palm-fringed avenue that links the downtown area with the marina of Puer-to Banús. This 6.5 kilometre-long road is not only the most prestigious address in Marbella, it also the epicen-tre of this luxury resort’s glamorous appeal, the very spot where it all began. The story of Marbella’s transfor-mation from a charming little fishing village into an internationally famous Mediterranean jet-set destination is centred upon the Golden Mile and the iconic Marbella Club Hotel that forms the epicentre of Marbella chic.

Successive generations of the world’s rich and famous continue to flock to this grand boulevard flanked by luxury villas, exclusive apartment complexes and beachside mansions, confirming the Golden Mile as the prime address in Marbella and one of the best in the Mediterranean region. It continues to be the most de-sired location, with demand far outstripping supply. Since vacant land in this mostly consolidated prime loca-tion is extremely scarce there has been virtually no new construction since 2004, so most properties and ur-banisations in the area – including the beachside ones – tend to be older.

New-build properties are therefore extremely rare along the Golden Mile, so it is all the more exciting that two luxurious modern developments are being launched in top location within walking distance to the beaches and dining, shopping and lifestyle hubs in and near the Puente Romano Beach Resort & Spa. Construction will start at the end of the year on apartments and villas built to the highest quality standards that match the best dis-cerning international buyers are accustomed to. Located in Marbella’s top address, the first new-build homes on the Golden Mile in years also stand out for their unique lifestyle offer and onsite services – making this the crème de la crème of Marbella real estate.

The Collection

Situated walking distance from the beaches of the Golden Mile and just 80 metres away from the luxury amen-ities of the Puente Romano Beach Resort & Spa, The Collection is a small secured gated community with full concierge service that also offers a gym, sauna, Jacuzzi and beautiful greenery accompanied by mountain and sea views. The alluring contemporary styling of the semi-detached villas has a timeless quality thanks to the mastery of proportions and the use of quality materials and detailing. These sophisticated homes really do of-fer the best of modern living in a top Marbella location, combining sleek, open-plan living areas, sumptuously finished kitchens and bathrooms, and modern-styled terrace and pool areas with the cosseting embrace of lush green gardens and solid stone walls.

The combination of these elements sets the homes apart to create properties of unique quality and desirabil-ity. In addition to the personalising of interior spaces, owners also have the choice of eight freestanding villas, which like the semi-detached villas feature luxurious living areas, master suites with walk-in dressing rooms and entertainment areas on the lower of the three levels. The very pinnacle of 21st century style, comfort and refinement, The Collection was created from an inspired aesthetic and lifestyle concept to offer beautifully crafted modern homes in an iconic Golden Mile location close to Marbella town and Puerto Banús.

La Meridiana Suites

Besides being a new real estate project on the Golden Mile, La Meridiana Suites is exciting on many other lev-els as well. Beautifully styled by leading architect Pablo Villaroël, the 34 luxury apartments and penthouses offer all the modern features you could wish for – in addition to others you won’t easily find elsewhere.

Set within a prime location, walking distance from the Puente Romano Hotel and the beach, the complex is shrouded in the immaculate greenery of its landscaped gardens, at the heart of which is a sleek swimming pool and deck surrounded by lawns and modern water features. The properties are distributed in four low-rise buildings marked by their attractive architectural styling. There is a choice of two, three and four-bedroom apartments and penthouses of 120m2 to 300m2 with distinct interior and terrace layouts and a very high level of bespoke finishing available. The penthouses offer a large solarium with a 10x5 metre private swimming pool and the opportunity to create your own refined lifestyle area complete with chill-out lounge and outdoor bar.

Spacious open-plan living with panoramic windows typifies interiors with kitchens by Boffi and optional interi-or design services by Pedro Peña. The finest materials and latest technical features are included, while the first floor apartments and semi-penthouses also have their own 5x3 metre terrace pools. The complex offers 24-hour security, a deluxe resort spa with gym, indoor pool, Jacuzzi, hammam and sauna as well as a comprehen-sive concierge service available to make owning a La Meridiana Suites property a five-star deluxe experience. Another feature that stands out in its unique lifestyle offering is the 9,000m2 private park that provides resi-dents with their own paddle courts, jogging track and natural green oasis at the heart of the Golden Mile.
