The Golden Mile is where the story of Marbella really began, for it was here that it evolved as an international jet-set destination from the 1950s onwards. The creation of the legendary Marbella Club Hotel by Prince Alfonso von Hohenlohe, the man who was instrumental in placing this area before an international luxury clientele, formed the catalyst, for this stylishly glamorous venue drew aristocrats, royals, business tycoons and Hollywood celebrities to the golden shores of the southern Mediterranean.
They centred upon the Marbella Club and its stunning beachside location with spectacular Mediterranean views, and before long Marbella became a mecca for the international jet-set. The trend continued with the opening of the Marbella Club’s sister hotel, the luxurious Puente Romano resort and the Puerto Banús marina, while the palm-tree lined avenue that connected them with Marbella town became known as the Golden Mile – a 6,5-kilometre long boulevard flanked by luxurious villas, apartment complexes and parkland.
Many chose to build holiday homes here or make Marbella their residence of choice, creating the greatest collection of beachside villas, mansions and penthouses in the area, and making the Golden Mile the ultimate address and expression of luxury and refinement in Marbella – and one of the finest upmarket destinations in the Mediterranean. The address books reads like a who’s-who of famous names, with even royals building palaces set within beautiful parks – all just a stroll away from the elegant beach clubs, tennis centre and other facilities of the Golden Mile.
Golden Mile sets the standard for luxury
Indeed, the Golden Mile sets the bar for quality and distinction very high, for within its private streets and lush gardens residents enjoy optimal peace, security and privacy, yet find themselves in the midst of Marbella magic and never more than ten minutes from the best beaches, golf courses, schools, clinics, restaurants, shops, spas and nightlife in Marbella.
