Marbella’s Mayor, José Bernal and the town’s councillor for Tourism, Javier Porcuna have met with Jo Bergsvand in an attempt to endorse the town’s training facilities and encourage professional, foreign footballers to train in Marbella.

Following last week's announcement in Hong Kong that the Starwood-Marriott group will open a luxury hotel in Marbella in 2021, local councillors have been explaining this week the likely impact on the town.

The low-density hotel, under the exclusive W brand, will be built on just a third of the 151,000 square metres of land alongside Real de Zaragoza beach, to the east of Marbella town towards Elviria. The total cost of the project, to be carried out by Platinum Estates, is expected to be over 200 million euros.

A leading luxury hotel chain is to open an establishment in Marbella. On Thursday, the W chain signed an agreement with the Platinum Estates investment group, which is developing a project in the area of the sand dunes at Real de Zaragoza, to manage the hotel, which is expected to open in 2021.

There had been rumours that the investment group, based in Singapore, and the hotel chain, one of the most important in the world’s luxury sector, were planning to join forces on an important project, but due to a confidentiality clause, neither party to the agreement wanted to give any details until the deal was signed and the official announcement was made in Hong Kong.
