Guests staying at Puente Romano Beach Resort are now able enjoy a new eco-friendly way to view the Mediterranean. This summer, the Andalucian villagestyle resort on the beachfront between Marbella and Puerto Banús launched a new service for clients (available throughout the year), enabling them to sail around the Mediterranean in total privacy, peace and quiet, while taking in spectacular views of the Málaga mountains, Gibraltar rock and northern Africa’s coastline. The 53-foot, fully-crewed sailing boat is “naturally powered by the fresh breeze and energy of the sea for an experience that’s just as eco-friendly as it is luxurious”. According to Puente Romano, resort hotel guests and owners club members can enjoy a whole day on board discovering the Andalucian coast, dive straight from the boat to swim or snorkel, or enjoy paddle boarding in the Costa del Sol’s azure waters. Freshly made Spanish cuisine is prepared on board, and guests can chillout while basking in the sunshine before, as the day draws to an end, admiring the area’s stunning sunsets. They also have the opportunity to sit back, relax and look out for dolphins among the waves, or – with an experienced captain on board – learn how to be a skipper themselves for the day, testing their skills at navigating the sailboat. The sporty boat has been designed for racing as well as comfortable cruising, offering the best of both yachting worlds. The sailing excursion includes use of spacious lounge areas, kitchen, living room and main cabin, plus two guest cabins equipped with their own bathrooms. “The Jeanneau 53 sailboat is ecologically clean and green,” stresses Puente Romano, “and highlights the importance of caring for our seas at a time when it is more important than ever”.
The sailing service is available in four and eight-hour rental packages: €750 and €1,200, respectively. All packages include food on board “inspired by the best dishes of authentic Spanish cuisine”. Back on shore, the 180 spacious Puente Romano Beach Resort suites extend across three-storey villas, each surrounded by verdant subtropical gardens and waterfalls, with stunning landscaping all the way down to the Mediterranean Sea. The 55,000 square metre resort offers more than 15 restaurants with a diverse range of international cuisines, including the beachfront Sea Grill, new Nobu By the Beach, newly opened Les Jardins and Dani García’s Leña, as well as a variety of organic restaurants. . The resort also comprises mainland Spain’s only Six Senses Spa, which includes a hydrotherapy pool, cold plunge pool, herbal steam room, sauna and hammam. A wide selection of Six Senses signature treatments and wellness therapies is available, including a new CBD oil treatment designed to help relieve tension and relax muscles. International-class fitness and wellness facilities are located on and around the property, offering activities including tennis, golf, horse-riding, paddle boarding, swimming, and yoga and Pilates.
