Estepona old town's latest hotel is due to open in January or February 2020, following a 15-million-euro construction project. As Spain's first hotel with an on-site beer brewery, the four-star, 49-room boutique destination is expected to be one of the most original on the Costa del Sol.
German owner Richard Eller has chosen to add some touches from his homeland, as he plans to produce five German beers in the artisan brewery. Initial annual production is expected to be 300,000 litres, and artisan courses will be offered via an agreement with the Doemens Academy for brewing.
The Hotel Maravilla's interior will also feature some of the best-preserved tannery remains in the country, dating back to the end of the 12th century.
Eller claims the hotel's location is unbeatable. Its close proximity to both the town and the beach will offer plenty of choice, he explained.
