Golf, spa, tennis, swimming – and a kids club! Anantara’s recently launched Villa Padierna Palace Benahavis Marbella Resort has got a lot up its palatial sleeves.

This is the first time the Anantara brand has moved into Spain and the stunning, British-architect designed Andalusian property is set amidst rolling hills overlooking the Mediterranean. On a clear day, you can see Morocco on the horizon.

First up, the kids. There’s a designated children’s club, which means plenty of opportunity for grown ups to slink off and enjoy the facilities. Younger guests can expect mini-bathrobes, toiletries, bedtime treats, a welcome gift and there are child-friendly menus in most of the hotel’s restaurants.

For parents, there are no less than three world class golf courses at the resort, plus a racquet club, a spa and an outdoor pool.

The spa offers ten treatment rooms, as well as a hydrotherapy circuit, a Hammam and aromatherapy steam rooms. Customised golf massages are also available for those returning from Marbella’s ‘golden triangle’ golfing region. The three, 18-hole courses of Villa Padierna Golf Club envelope the property and there are three further courses nearby.

The property has 132 guest rooms, suites and pool villas and each of the nine one- and two-bedroom villas comes with a butler service and private pool.
