Singapore-based Multi-branded Hospitality Group to Bring Angsana’s Vibrant Concept to Marbella, Spain
Singapore, 28 February 2023 – Banyan Tree Group, one of the world’s leading multi-branded independent hospitality groups, has signed an MOU with La Quinta Real Estate Group to open Angsana Real de La Quinta Benahavis Marbella resort and residences in 2026. Located in the charming Mediterranean town of Benahavis near Marbella, the development will include a hotel, branded residences, apartments and commercial spaces. The property will mark the Group’s debut in Spain.
Perched at the top of a hill and nestled inside the 200-hectare Real de La Quinta residential community, Angsana Real de La Quinta Benahavis Marbella will command expansive views over the rolling hills below and the blue Alboran sea. The design – led by OBMI with interiors from MKV Design and landscaping by RSR Studio – celebrates and fosters togetherness among friends and family amid bright, airy interiors. Composed of clean lines and simple silhouettes, the architecture incorporates elegant brick wall patterns and stonework referencing local materials and building traditions.
Modern and fluid interior designs, meanwhile, find cues in the resort’s architecture and honour the sense of retreat into the beautiful, wooded slopes of the Sierra de las Nieves. Ample windows provide expansive views and an open feel, while social spaces dotted with orange trees and water features promote social gatherings in a courtyard-style setting that reflects both Angsana’s essence of treasuring each moment and the destination’s Andalusian soul.
In addition to 90 nature-integrated guestrooms and suites circling an oasis courtyard, the hotel will also feature three dining venues, including all-day dining, signature and pool bar and grill concepts; meeting spaces; spa and kids’ club; adult and family pools; and a wedding amphitheatre. Branded residences, ranging from 97 to 151 square metres in size, are a carefully choreographed composition of light and space which, at the same time, serves the needs of a family lifestyle. Available in two- and three-bedroom configurations, Angsana residences will come with amenities such as a private courtyard, swimming pool, parking, daily housekeeping and maintenance services.
To help families with local immersion through on- and off-site activities, Angsana Real de La Quinta Benahavis Marbella will offer moonlit paddles around Real de La Quinta's lake (with a beach area), nature hikes to explore local flora, including to the neighbouring UNESCO biosphere reserve. Real de La Quinta will also have a restaurant area, operated by the renowned Azotea Grupo; a Health & Wellness area, run by Le Max Club. one of the most chic and luxurious destinations in Spain and Southern Europe.
Peter Hechler, Vice President, Head of Operations at Banyan Tree Group said:
"We couldn’t have asked for a better business partner for Banyan Tree Group’s Spanish debut. La Quinta Real Estate Group has more than 35 years of experience in the real estate world as a developer. Real de La Quinta is the second residential resort to be developed in Marbella, a unique experience and concept on the Costa del Sol, where the priority is to build homes in a natural environment with facilities and services, conceptually becoming a unique place for leisure in daily life"
"Angsana, being a concept that focuses on creating special moments with loved ones, is the perfect fit for the Real de La Quinta community,” commented Borja Pascual, CEO of La Quinta Real Estate Group. “With groups of families and friends increasingly looking for meaningful experiences when on holiday, the upcoming Angsana Real de La Quinta Benahavis Marbella is perfectly positioned to capitalise on a trend that has togetherness at its core. Banyan Tree Group’s hospitality and wellness expertise will be crucial to showcasing the Spanish way of life and helping travellers make lifelong memories in one of Europe’s most spectacular locales."
The feasibility study and operator search were conducted by Horwath HTL, with Savills responsible for contract negotiation and asset management. Both phases were led by Jesús Rodríguez Maseda.
