The chief business city of the Costa del Sol, Malaga, is about to welcome the arrival of its first luxury grand hotel, Gran Hotel Miramar, in an historic landmark structure that has been restored in a two-year, €65m refurbishment.
A member of the Leading Hotels of the World, the property will welcome its first guests next month to an iconic building designed by Spanish architect Fernando Guerrero Strachan and inaugurated in 1926 by King Alfonso XIII as the Hotel Principe de Asturias.
Changes of use since have included a stint as a field hospital during the Spanish Civil War and a 20-year period as Malaga’s courthouse, but the renovation has now restored it to its former glory, preserving or returning many of its original features.
The hotel, a 15min drive from Malaga Airport, features 200 rooms and suites, a ballroom, five restaurants and bars including a rooftop chill-out zone, and a spa spanning two floors with indoor and outdoor pools. Meeting and event facilities include 19 function spaces.
Renowned as the birth place of Picasso, Malaga is one of the world’s oldest cities and now a burgeoning cultural centre. It has recently seen three major museum openings.
