It will be joined by Chanca by COYA, which picks up the baton from Coya Marbella, which opened last year. It will offer an immersive Peruvian-inspired dining experience accompanied by carefully chosen décor that also plays an important part in the sophisticated ambience of the space.

"When the night begins, Chanca by COYA transforms into a place for music and party enthusiasts, ushering in a new era of elevated nightlife experiences in Marbella," says COYA Group Global COO Yannis Stanisiere.

The first in Spain

The third new dining experience at Puerto Romano Beach Resort, Gaia Marbella, is already open to the public. The name pays tribute to a goddess from Greek mythology and the cuisine follows suit; chefs Izu Ani and Orestis Kotefas prepare Greek-Mediterranean dishes such as carpaccio of whole sea bream, roast kid in a wood-fired oven and Kritharaki Orzo seafood pasta, among others.
