The company's involvement with Spain began in 1950, with the first Club Med Alcudia Beach in the Baleares.

The Marbella resort will be the new family premium flagship of Club Med in Europe. Offering a wide variety of sports, wellness and cultural activities the Marbella esort will operate 11 months of theyear and will have a great potential to welcome groups with its complete range of meeting and event facilities. The resort will also appeal to families due to its comprehensive range of childcare from 4 months to 17 years

Henri Giscard d’Estaing, president of Club Med, commented, "I am very proud and honoured to celebrate with our partnerMagna Hotels & Resorts the rebirth of Club Med in Spain. As a world leader in premium all-inclusive holiday with wide brand awareness, Club Med has a capacity to att ract a family clientele from all over the world due to its presence in Europe, Asia/China, North and South of America.

"The opening of the first Exclusive collection resort Club Med Cefalù in Sicily, the opening of future flagship in Marbella and the ones that will follow on the few next years confirm the ambition of Club Med to redevelop in Mediterranean Europe".
