Gran Hotel Miramar is the first grand luxury hotel ever built in the ancient Andalusian city of Malaga, and is a member of The Leading Hotels of the World and part of the Santos Hotels hotel chain.
A historic landmark building in the old city centre which has been painstakingly restored following a two year, 65m Euros overhaul, Gran Hotel Miramar has re-emerged as one of Europe’s foremost grand dames, firmly establishing Malaga on the global luxury travel map. The iconic building was designed by celebrated Spanish architect Fernando Guerrero Strachan, and inaugurated in 1926 by King Alfonso XIII as the Hotel Principe de Asturias. It has undergone many incarnations since then, including a stint as a field hospital during the Spanish Civil War and a 20- year period as the city’s courthouse. The assiduous renovation returned this majestic edifice to its former glory, preserving or revitalising many of its original features, including intricate Moorish carved wood arches, a beautiful first floor gallery, Andalusian tiling, hand-painted frescoes and ornate stucco ceilings. Set amongst beautifully landscaped grounds, this welcomed addition to Europe’s pantheon of grand dame hotels features 190 rooms and suites; a fabulous ballroom; five restaurants and bars including a rooftop chill out zone; an intimate boutique spa; an outdoor pool; and extensive meetings and events facilities.
Internationally renowned as the birthplace of Pablo Picasso, Malaga is one of the oldest cities in the world, and gateway to Spain’s beautiful Costa Del Sol. It is now also a burgeoning cultural centre, and has recently seen three major museum openings – the most significant being the five-year pop-up Centre Pompidou, housed in a futuristic building on the waterfront and displaying a changing selection of 20th- and 21st-century paintings by artists like Frida Kahlo and Marc Chagall. Located in the cultural hub of La Caleta, within easy reach of the Museo Picasso and Museo Carmen Thyssen Malaga museums, and boasting a fabulous seafront location with breathtaking views across the bay of Malaga, the hotel is just a 15-minutes’ drive from Malaga International Airport.
