The Anantara Villa Padierna Palace Hotel is located near the gastronomic village of Benahavís in the hills above Marbella, 36 miles (58 km) west of Malaga and in the middle of Los Flamingos’s 3 golf courses.
The imposing pink palace evokes the spirit of Tuscany rather than Andalusia. The profusion of antiques and artworks, many from the owner’s own collections, helps to create a distinctive atmosphere.
It certainly doesn’t feel like just another high-end resort hotel. If you peek discreetly over your sunglasses you’ll probably spot a famous face or two around the pool, tennis courts, landscaped gardens or lavish Thermal spa. The hotel has a beach club and numerous sports facilities including 3 golf courses and tennis & paddle courts.
