METT to open Marbella property next summer

The 249-key METT Hotel & Beach Resort Marbella Estepona will open in July 2023

Sunset Hospitality Group (SHG) will expand its lifestyle hotel brand, METT Hotels & Resorts, to Marbella, Spain, with the opening scheduled for next summer. The new METT Hotel & Beach Resort Marbella Estepona was recently acquired by HIP- Blackstone, taking over ownership from the Spanish Mazabi family office.

The hotel sits on the Costa del Sol pristine shoreline and features 249 keys including 24 suites. An extensive refurbishment financed by HIP – Blackstone has started to upgrade the property to METT Hotels & Resorts standards and welcome guests in July 2023.

True to its concept, the five-star lifestyle property will focus on dining, entertainment, and experiences to bring people together to celebrate life.

Antonio Gonzalez, CEO, Sunset Hospitality Group, says: “METT hotels are curated for those travellers of today who are looking for a place to simply have fun and celebrate life in incredible locations. After the phenomenal success of METT Bodrum, we are excited to spread the brand values and experiences and look forward to welcoming the residents and visitors of Costa del Sol to discover our unique offering through the upcoming METT Hotel & Beach Resort Marbella. We are delighted to be working with HIP on this project and look forward to a bright future together.”

The beachfront property provides uninterrupted sea views and is surrounded by a lush Andalusian landscape resembling a “chic contemporary cortijo.” With the art of dining and entertainment at its heart, the resort will feature several international lifestyle brands, providing a unique dining offering that will position this property as a socializing hub.

A destination for fitness and wellness enthusiasts, the resort also provides a state-of-the-art gym and studio for group classes, along with a modern spa.
