Opening in early 2022, the resort features a plethora of entertainment options, with over twenty-five different sports and activities on the grounds, including Zen yoga, aerial fitness, flying trapeze, archery, beach volleyball, and paddle tennis (native to Marbella). If you’re a tennis enthusiast, the resort features a dozen tennis courts, both clay and hard, staffed with pros to help fine-tune your game. If you’re looking to brush up on your golf swing, there’s a putting green and a driving range. Of course, there’s nothing better than some poolside relaxation in one of five pools, including an indoor freshwater pool, the main lagoon, an adults-exclusive Zen pool, a dedicated kids pool for the Children’s Clubs, and a family-friendly waterpark area. If you’re looking for a little me time the Club Med Spa by CINQ MONDES offers fourteen treatment rooms where you can indulge in a facial or massage, as well as a steam room and an indoor-outdoor relaxation room.
Once you’ve maxed out on activity time, the rich Andalusian region offers an endless array of excursions. With Gibraltar, the medieval city of Ronda, and Malaga (birthplace of Pablo Piccaso), all an hour’s drive away, Club Med Magna Marbella is the ideal location to explore the rich Arab-Andalusian history and natural wonders of the area. If you’re looking for a little retail therapy, head off for the day to Puerto Banus, a designer fashion lover’s dream come true, just a 15-minute drive from the resort. You’ll find all the big luxury brands along the harbour, stocked with exclusive pieces you won’t find anywhere else in Europe, as well as a wide range of beach clubs and bars where you can post up and watch an endless array of luxurious supercars roll by.
If you’re looking to stroll around an ancient city, then a day trip to the cliff-side city of Ronda might be just what you need to satisfy your wanderlust. Part of the Sierra de las Nieves Natural Park, the city is divided by the three bridges over the breathtaking Tajo canyon and home to the oldest bullfighting rings in Spain, the Plaza de toros de Ronda. Stroll the shops and restaurants along the Carrera Espinel and be sure to bring back a bottle of olive oil from the region.
Once you return from your adventure up the mountains to Ronda or down to the waterfront to shop, Club Med Magna Marbella welcomes you back to enjoy dinner at one of the resort’s two restaurants and three bars serving a locally curated culinary experience featuring food and drink of the region. The main restaurant, Suenos, is at the heart of the resort, while the Tierra Gourmet Lounge welcomes guests all day long with a lively bar, wine cellar, and gourmet snack bar ideal for Spanish tapas wine tastings, happy hour, and live music.
