Market Summary
Marbella is one of the leading leisure tourism destinations in
Spain: its average daily rate (125.9 € per night in 2014) is the
highest among leisure destinations (excluding urban) and is fifth
in RevPAR (76.5 € in 2014). International tourists accounted for
77% of hotel nights sold in 2014. Hotel supply has decreased 4%
in the last five years and current new supply is quite limited and
uncertain. Given the strong levels of international demand we
foresee very good results for operators in the short term.

Spanish Nationals
In 2015, Marbella will once again reach the number of overnights
sold in 2005. The last decade has been tough, especially due to
cases of corruption and the radical decrease in the number of
Spanish tourists. Despite that, Marbella has been growing
strongly since 2013, with a significant extension of the average
stay. Aninver projects a growth of 13% for the number of visitors
and 12% for overnights in 2015 vs. 2014.

International
The number of visitors today still falls below the figures seen in
2005, however the number of international visitors has increased
11% over the past decade. International tourist overnights have
increased much more significantly (25%), representing almost four
out of five hotel nights sold in Marbella today.

“The weight of international tourists in overnights
has increased from 62% up to 77% in the last
decade, transforming Marbella into a much more
international destination. The reduction in hotel
supply since 2009 (-4%) has allowed existing hotels
to significantly increase their occupancy (+23% in
2009-E2015)”.

Marbella as a luxury tourism brand
There are 16 5* and 5*GL
hotels in the Marbella area
Marbella has a long tradition of
being a luxury tourism
destination on a global scale.
The so-called “Golden Triangle”
area, comprised of the
Marbella, Estepona and
Benahavis municipalities, hosts
16 5-star and 5-star GL (“gran
lujo”) hotels. Assets such as
Finca Cortesin or Villa Padierna,
although not located in
Marbella itself, show in practice
how the “Marbella” brand is
expanding to cover a larger
territory.

Key project: new Magna Palace Hotel

In 2012, Foundation Magna Invest, based in Luxembourg,
acquired the 550-room 5-star Don Miguel resort in
Marbella. The group is working on the refurbishment of the
asset which will open its doors as “Magna Palace 5*GL”. The
new hotel will have 300 deluxe rooms and 73 sea-view
suites. Several restaurants, a business center, a 5,000 sqm
spa, a shopping center and a new 62,000 sqm aquatic park
will complete the range of services provided by the new
complex. Construction work has yet to begin.
