The famous Incosol health resort on the east side of town, which closed five years ago when the group which owned it went into liquidation, may open again as a hotel if plans currently being considered by the council go ahead.

The Hotel Value Added Primera group, part of the Grupo Sabadell subsidiary company which bought the building in 2017, is said to have approached the town hall for advice on what would be needed to reopen Incosol as a hotel, but has not yet presented any plans. One potential problem is that the land upon which the building stands is classified for health-related use, so this could mean that the current Urban Plan for Marbella, which dates back to 1986, would have to be modified.

Incosol was a favourite health spa with the Marbella jet set during the 1970s and 1980s, and its visitors included famous names such as Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Sean Connery, Prince Rainier of Monaco and Camilo José Cela, among many others.
