Following a 65m Euros investment, Gran Hotel Miramar in Malaga has recently undergone a complete overhaul and launched in spring 2017. The landmark historic building has, since opening its doors, established itself as one of Europe’s foremost grand and glamorous hotels.
Located in the centre of Malaga, in the area of Caleta right on the seaside promenade, this majestic hotel designed by celebrated Spanish architect Fernando Guerrero Strachan offers a stunning view of the city and complete seaside grandeur with both elegance and comfort.
Entering the grand lobby it is evident the recent painstaking renovation has managed to restore the historic building to its former glory by preserving its original features including intricate Moorish carved wood arches, a beautiful first-floor gallery, Andalucían tiling, hand-painted frescoes and ornate stucco ceilings.
With 200 rooms, three restaurants and bars including an impressive rooftop area, spa, gym, ballroom and conference facilities Gran Hotel Miramar caters to families, couples as well as business travellers.
The style of the property is classic but some areas have a more contemporary and chic feel like the rooftop bar.
