La Fonda Heritage Hotel Marbella has officially opened its doors as the first Relais & Châteaux property in Andalusia.
Located in the heart of Marbella´s Old Town, this luxury boutique hotel is steeped in history and is a true testament to the area’s cultural heritage. The hotel is a perfect blend of traditional Andalusian architecture and contemporary design, boasting open courtyards, a sky bar, and gourmet restaurants.
A Journey Through the Centuries
La Fonda Heritage Hotel comprises three meticulously restored historical buildings that were once a private residence, a church, and a school. The hotel’s impressive restoration project has uncovered some of the city’s most extraordinary discoveries, including the altar and nave of the 16th-century Church of San Sebastian and structures from the Nasrid period dating back to the 13th century.
The hotel’s rich history plays an important role in the area’s tourist development and serves as a window into Marbella´s ´Golden Years´. During the late ’80s, La Fonda became the first Michelin-star restaurant in the city and an important meeting place for intellectuals, artists, and socialites.
La Fonda Heritage Hotel is home to a trio of exquisite restaurants, including its signature restaurant, Jane, where Executive Chef Pascal Silman reimagines Andalusian and Mediterranean local produce with global flavours.
The sky bar offers a stylish spot to enjoy Champagne cocktails, oysters, and a raw menu under the night sky. The charming courtyard terraces, Los Patios de La Fonda, afford a delightful spot to enjoy coffee and breakfast on the leafy patio.
Contemporary Rooms and Suites
La Fonda Heritage Hotel offers 20 unique rooms, including three suites, all impeccably furnished, offering sleek bathrooms, old-town views, and original character.
The Loft Suite affords a private hideaway to retreat and relax above the world. The Heritage Suite, on the other hand, is a unique room in the hotel, home to the original dome of the Church’s dressing room and 18th-century mural paintings of angels.
Relais & Châteaux
La Fonda Heritage Hotel is the first Relais & Châteaux property in Andalusia, and the team is deeply committed to the same values, exuding a passion for their craft and forging warm, lasting relations with their guests.
Guests at La Fonda Heritage Hotel can embark upon a delightful excursion through Ronda’s olive groves and vineyards or sip wine with tapas on the hotel’s leafy patio.
Private walking tours around Marbella’s Old Town, flamenco dancing, and wine tasting are just a few of the carefully crafted experiences that allow guests to soak up the energy, flavours, and colours of the region.
La Fonda Heritage Hotel Marbella is a luxury boutique hotel that brings the Andalusian spirit to life in stylish surroundings celebrating history, gastronomy, and hospitality.
