Proof that times flies when you are having fun and setting the benchmark for excellence, Kempinski Hotel Bahía marks its 24th anniversary this March.
With spectacular views out over the Mediterranean sea, its unique beachfront setting and architecture and its extensive gardens, it soon gained a reputation as a paradise for both locals and international visitors alike. From welcoming royalty, heads of state, celebrities, musicians, families, couples celebrating weddings and honeymooners, to prestigious brand launches, beach polo events and classical-music concerts, to even appearing in a rather famous Spanish film, the hotel has a thousand stories to tell, and thousands more memories have been made here.
Designed by the renowned architect Melvin Villarroel, the hotel’s architecture reflects its front-line beach position, with uninterrupted views towards Africa, Gibraltar and the Málaga coastline. The architect also took inspiration from both Morocco and Andalucía as he pays homage to the land by reflecting its terracotta colour throughout the building, as well as delicate touches in the form of arches and turrets. For inspiration, Villarroel also looked to the ancient Almenara watchtower, nestled in the subtropical gardens, having proudly guarded the coastline since the 16th century.
As the first international-branded five-star hotel to open in the area, Kempinski Hotel Bahía has a relationship with the town of Estepona that has grown over the years. From creating careers to celebrating weddings, many locals have a fond connection with Kempinski Hotel Bahía, and that also includes a number of staff who are celebrating their 24th work anniversary at the hotel as well!
During 2018, the hotel’s key spaces, including the lobby and two restaurants, underwent an extensive refurbishment, creating a modern and inviting dining hub, El Paseo del Mar, which consists of Black Rose The Bar, Baltazár Bar & Grill and Spiler Beach Club, all of which are open to the public. Spiler Beach Club has recently become a popular destination for those looking to escape the crowds and enjoy a more sophisticated yet laid-back pace of life. Connected directly to the promenade which runs along the coast, the beach club has seen a surge in guests dropping in for a drink and a bite to eat whilst out walking or cycling along this enchanting path.
During the month of March, the hotel has a number of celebrations to mark this milestone moment. In the anniversary month, you will be able to enjoy two ‘Kempinski Birthday’ cocktails for €24 in Black Rose, The Bar, whose terrace overlooks the pools and extensive gardens in all their glory and directly out over the Mediterranean.
From March 20 – 26 at Spiler Beach Club, Executive Chef Adrian Topan will craft four traditional tapas with a twist, including a drink, for €24 per person.
