Hot on the heels of the opening of Japanese restaurant Nobu in Marbella’s Puente Romano Hotel last week, bosses have been explaining their plans to open a Nobu hotel there next year.
The exclusive restaurants of Japanese chef Nobu Matsuhisa are well-known for their innovative, minimalist cuisine. Since 2013 Nobu has opened a series of boutique hotels to complement its brand in partnership with Hollywood actor Robert de Niro.
Marbella’s new Nobu hotel will also be within the Puente Romano hotel complex, occupying the building that surrounds the Plaza Village restaurants. It will initially have 49 suites for adults between 45 and 120 metres square, with plans to grow to 81 suites in 2019. An oriental-style swiming pool will be added.
Nobu currently has six hotels - in Miami, Manila, Las Vegas, Malibu, Riyadh and London. The first hotel in Spain is due to open shortly in Ibiza.
