Anantara Villa Padierna Palace Benahavís Marbella Resort

Anantara Villa Padierna Palace Benahavís Marbella Resort is a hotel experience like no other. I have just finished shooting content for this beautiful hotel and the hotel really exceeded my expectations. They surely live up to their 5-star rating.

About Anantara Villa Padierna Palace Benahavís Marbella Resort

Anantara Villa Padierna Palace Benahavís Marbella Resort is located on Costa De Sol in Spain, about a 20 minute drive away from Marbella. Costa De Sol is famous for its fantastic weather. Marbella averages with 320 days of sun per year.

Anantara is surrounded by three golf courses, and within the hotel the theme of nature and greenery flows on. I was incredibly impressed by all the well- maintained gardens, plants and trees everywhere. The pool area is astonishingly beautiful, surrounded by plants, it makes you feel like you are in a beautiful Oasis.

The Italian influence can definitely be felt within the hotel and its impressive architecture. There's a Roman amphitheatre, a luxurious spa with several Roman baths, statues scattered around the hotel and several water fountains and pools. Besides that, there are over 1,200 original works of art showcased around the hotel. The hotel was built in 2003, but it feels like you are walking within the walls of an old Castle. It's nice to see such elegance and sophistication being implemented into a hotel build.

Anantara Villa Padierna Palace Benahavís Marbella Resort has several restaurants. The high standard breakfast is served in a beautiful garden that includes an la carte menu and a buffet. During the stay, I tried out La Loggia and La Veranda for dinner and La Pergola and their health cafe Irine for lunch. La Veranda is their fine dining restaurant and it's a must visit! It was a true culinary experience. Irine cafe by the pool was another big hit for me. They offer healthy delicious food and each dish was incredible. Anantara is also home to 99 Sushi Bar & Restaurant, a cocktail bar called Eddy's bar, a beach club and they also offer private dining experiences and cooking classes.

The villa (hotel room)

I stayed in an absolutely gorgeous Tuscan style 2 floor- 2 - bedroom villa with a private pool, kitchen and two large on-sweet bathrooms. The furniture was elegant and of great quality. The walls were home to several beautiful pieces of artwork. Very impressive.


The service at Anantara Villa Padierna Palace Benahavís Marbella Resort impressed me. Although being a larger hotel, all the staff knew who you were and really made you feel right at home. The maintenance of the room was perfectly executed and the staff were all so lovely and in a good mood.

Pros an Cons

Pro- Exceptional Facilities, beautiful rooms and many fantastic restaurant options. This hotel is one well worth to travel to just to experience it. You will be in such good hands that you might not want to leave the hotel grounds. 

Cons- Not many cons. If you are looking to party it up in Marbella, it's good to understand that Anantara is situated a little bit out of the way. So be ready for the travel in and out. I would personally make the travel to this hotel to spend as much time here as possible. 

Book your stay

Its always best to book your hotel stay directly through the hotel. This way you support the hotel more than using a third party operator- and you are more likely to score a better rate 😊 CLICK HERE TO VIEW WEBSITE
