The Hotel Puente Romano is situated on the southern coast of Spain in the Costa del Sol within the “Golden Mile”, a residential area between Marbella and Puerto Banús, just 35 minutes drive from Málaga Airport. The heart of the Resort and its social focus is the Roman Bridge (Puente Romano) from which the property takes its name. This ancient artefact from the first century is the only remaining structure of a road which once linked Cadiz with Rome, the Via Augusta.
Built in the style of an Andalusian village, the 285 spacious guest rooms are spread in 27 three–storey villas, scattered around the three levels comprising the 55.000 sqm of lush, sub-tropical landscaped gardens, gently cascading down to the Mediterranean Sea. Over 400 species of plant life have been brought to the gardens from all around the world, many literally in a suitcase courtesy of HRH Principe Alfonso de Hohenlohe, the founder of the Puente Romano.

The paseo maritimo is a good place to stroll. There are more than 50 restaurants and many stores, so you can spend much time walking along the beach.
A visitor who arrives without prior knowledge will surely be surprised by the Old Quarter of Marbella, as it is not common for a city that is linked by choice to the modern world and large scale tourism to have managed to preserve the imprint of the past in an equal or greater degree than those localities whose fame is based on the historic and artistic legacies that they have inherited. The street plan of this part of the city preserves the irregular layout that is characteristic of the Arabic era, although some of its narrow streets open onto plazas designed immediately after the Christian Conquest. Of its ancient heritage special note should be taken of the Alcazaba or the Castle, in whose interior the original Arabic city was concentrated.
Los Naranjos Plaza (Plaza of the Orange Trees) is the result of the urban reorganisation carried by the conquerors. The Ayuntamiento (City Hall) stands on this beautiful plaza. It was built in the sixteenth century and enlarged in the eighteenth. Even older than the Ayuntamiento is the Casa del Corregidor (House of the Magistrate), adjoining the Capilla de Santiago Apóstol (Chapel of Saint James the Apostle), both of which were built in the sixteenth century. The attraction of Los Naranjos Plaza, however, does not lie exclusively in the aforementioned noble buildings but also in the way it continues in a sense to be the nerve centre of the old city. Numerous establishments of all types confer upon this corner of Marbella

In the middle of the bizarre mountain range Serranía de Ronda, at the edge of a 120 meters deep and 70 meters wide canyon, there is Ronda – certainly one of the most incredible places in all the land.
Hardly anybody has ever regretted the 60 kilometers journey from Marbella, passing narrow mountain streets, when suddenly Ronda appears like an apparition. “Nothing in all Spain is more surprising than this wild town”, said the writer Rainer Maria Rilke.
The famous and really breath-taking bridge alone is worth the travel, but Ronda has more to offer: the only bullring in all Spain which is entirely made of stone, and several interesting buildings in particular from the Moorish period. Ronda’s big central square is very lively, and several restaurants invite you to taste the specialities from the surrounding mountain range.

The stunning Finca Besaya is located in a villa set amongst an avocado farm on a windy road going up behind Marbella. It certainly is one of the most interestingly decorated restaurant/art museum I have ever seen and stepping into it you feel as if you have entered a lavish villa stuck in time. It is extremely old school with paintings and antiques lining its three storeys, there is also a patio if you wish to dine under the stars.
There are three main dining areas at the Finca Besaya, the first being on the ground floor that has an enormous fireplace and bar and then upstairs you can choose from ‘the blue room’ or ‘the library’ that is filled, surprisingly with old books. On the third floor there is a collection of art from renowned painters of the last century.
The food is extremely refined and sophisticated. Crafted by the hands of chefs native to both England and France; dishes include shoulder of lamb with black olive sauce and couscous, duck confit with crispy potatoes and entrecote steak with mushroom sauce.
