The mayor of Marbella, Ángeles Muñoz, visited the construction of the Club Med Magna Marbella, which will open its doors in the spring of 2020 and that will begin to be commercialised as of October of this year. There are more than 250 workers involved in the construction of the new luxury hotel and 60 percent of the companies hired for the project are local. Magna Hotels & Resorts and Club Med, are investing more than €70 million to refurbish the iconic Hotel Don Miguel that closed down in 2012. “It will be a novel high-end resort, with almost 500 rooms,” Muñoz said, who emphasised that its opening will also create 300 direct jobs and “a significant increase in economic activity in the city”.
Club Med’s unique vibrant and colourful design is inspired by strong cultural themes and the talent of the French designer Marc Hertrich. Founded in 1950, Club Med currently operates around 70 resorts in 26 countries across five continents and specialises in all-inclusive ‘premium’ vacations. The very first Club Med in Spain opened the at Alcudia Beach in the Baleares. The new hotel in Marbella will be ideal for a family clientele offering child care from 4 months to 17 years, a wide variety of sports, wellness and cultural activities. It will be open for 11 months of the year, not only welcoming guests holidaying in Marbella, but also groups that require meeting and event facilities.
