Since its establishment more than half a century ago by Prince Alfonso von Hohenlohe, Hotel Marbella Club has accumulated a wealth of history, full of extraordinary and unforgettable moments. The beach resort in Spain has been a meeting place for the international jet-set: aristocrats, stars of the entertainment world, business leaders and famous figures from all over the world.
In 1947, Prince Alfonso von Hohenlohe's family acquired Finca Santa Margarita, an old farm situated on 18 hectares along the coast of Marbella. Soon after, in the spring of 1954, thanks to the effort and determination of the young Prince, the Marbella Club beach resort first opened its doors. There were ten rooms in one wing, eight in the other, another room in the tower with a suite next to it, and a sitting room, dining room and bar located in the main part of the old converted farmhouse.
Fifty years later, and with an impressive history behind it, the Marbella Club Hotel has created an exciting biography detailing the extraordinary story of "this small paradise on earth".Biografía del autor:
