DEFINING BOUTIQUE HOTELS IN MARBELLA

What makes a hotel boutique? What can you expect to find in your room that tells you the establishment is somewhere unique and more importantly, that you’re a special guest? Read on to discover the essential ingredients you can expect to find in boutique hotels in Marbella.

The essence

Generally, boutique hotels in Marbella have several characteristics in common. They’re small with a limited number of rooms and rarely belong to a chain or brand of hotels. They offer privacy and exclusivity to their clients who look for an experience beyond a regular hotel stay.
You’ll find one such hotel in Marbella at Rio Real Golf & Resort. Situated at the heart of one of the most emblematic golf courses on the Costa del Sol, the Hotel enjoys panoramic views of the greens. It offers just 30 rooms and suites, all of which boast lovely vistas onto the course from their private terrace.

The design

What you’ll find inside a boutique hotel also counts. The very best call on top interior designers whose flair and talent finds the perfect backdrop in the main spaces and in every room. In the case of Rio Real Hotel, Pascual Ortega is the signature behind the design whose concept is elegant modernity in absolute comfort.
Unique works of art provide unusual touches to the interiors. In the corridors, you’ll also discover a collection of stunning photographs of celebrities from the 1960s and 1970s when Marbella first established itself as a favourite with the world’s rich and famous. 

The little touches

To feel truly at home, you need those little extras that offer comfort and luxury. The very best boutique hotels in Marbella do those touches to a T. At Rio Real Hotel, you’ll discover them in the amenities – your bathroom comes equipped with La Chinata toiletries, in generous 60ml sizes and made from extra virgin olive oil. Perfect additions to the large fluffy towels and soft bathrobes.
Then there’s the mini bar. Boutique hotels go the extra mile too. For example, open up the mini bar in one of the rooms at Rio Real and you’ll discover a delightful menu of treat-yourself products. Organic dried nuts, artisan chocolate, traditional lemon cookies and organic red fruit bars sit next to Moët & Chardon champagne, natural spring water and a wide selection of beers and soft drinks. Perfect for enjoying on your private terrace while you watch the sun set over the greens and Marbella mountains.

The service

True boutique hotels in Marbella offer the very best in service. Their ultimate aim seeks to make guests feel totally at home. You’ll find service with a capital S at Rio Real Hotel where staff go beyond the expected to ensure your stay is one to remember.
Room service is a given at boutique hotels and the one at Rio Real Hotel is available from early to late, so you never have to go hungry. We offer a surprisingly varied menu (another feature of feeling at home). Take your pick from hot or cold sandwiches, soups, plates of cold cuts and daily specials. There’s even a good choice of desserts.

The experience

At Rio Real Hotel you’ll definitely enjoy a stay to remember and one you’ll look on as among the best ever. And best of all, you get to stay at one of the best boutique hotels in Marbella for much less than you’d think. Check out our exclusive deals for a holiday of a lifetime and then book yours.
