Puente Romano, much more than a hotel
Puente Romano is much more than a wonderful ultra-exclusive hotel-resort. You can live, rent and invest in Puente Romano. You can enjoy its lifestyle without being a hotel client, by renting or owning a part of this exquisite Costa del Sol location.
For us, Pure Living Properties, Puente Romano is also our home.
What is Puente Romano in Marbella?
Puente Romano is a collection of ultra-exclusive developments divided into different phases and offering apartments, penthouses and villas for both purchase and rent. It is one of the most prestigious and sought after areas of Marbella and always in high demand.
Why the name Puente Romano Hotel?
The hotel is built around an authentic Roman bridge that formed part of the Via Augusta, the Roman road that connected Cadiz with Rome. The bridge is still in a good state of preservation, despite its age, and can be visited. There are other Roman ruins of great interest in Marbella and in the province.
What areas make up the area of Puente Romano, Marbella?
We can divide Puente Romano into six main areas. They all have in common a low construction height, maximum three floors, security services and lush, exotic gardens. It is also noteworthy that they are designed like a modern Andalusian village, as planned by its first architect, Melvin Villarroel.
1. Puente Romano Hotel Beach Resort. Built in 1974, the hotel has 26 buildings and a total of 190 apartment-suites. Although many are managed by the hotel itself, there is a select group of apartment-suites that operate independently and can be bought or rented. Their great advantage over other phases is that the suites have all the culinary, relaxation and shopping facilities of the hotel very close at hand.
2. Puente Romano Phase 2. This phase is no longer managed as a hotel, but rather as a fully residential development. These properties have a slightly more inland location, but are really only a few minutes walk to the beach. It is a U-shaped complex with manicured tropical gardens and a large swimming pool. The properties range from one to three bedrooms, sizes range from 100 m2 to 136 m2.
3. Marina Puente Romano. This is the largest construction phase of all and is located west of the hotel, comprising of three independent gated urbanisations.
- Japanese Garden (1992) comprising of 13 buildings with a total of 78 apartments and penthouses. This area stands out for its elaborate landscaping at different levels and has been awarded for its originality. Waterfalls, bridges and meandering waterways filled with water lilies and goldfish give the garden an Asian fairytale feel.
- Andaluz Garden (1992) consists of 12 buildings, with a total of 72 apartments and penthouses. Located on the north side of the Tennis Club. The Andalusian style architecture is complemented by touches of Roman and Muslim architecture. The complex is filled with palm trees, fountains, terracotta walkways and beautiful geometric patterned tiles.
- Persian Garden (1986) comprises of 16 buildings, with a total of 96 apartments and penthouses. As its name suggests, it is designed to give an arabesque first impression, with touches very close to the gardens of the Alhambra in Granada. It is full of fountains and irrigation channels that generate a continuous and relaxing sound of water. The garden leads to Marbella’s seafront promenade.
4. Las Terrazas de Puente Romano. Built in 2003, designed by Carlos Lamas, consists of 3 buildings (Cordoba, Granada and Malaga) with 6 units in each block. They are distinguished by having a more vertical design, which allows for spectacular views, but still no more than three floors. Some of the penthouses have private Jacuzzis on the terraces.
5. UNO. It is due for completion in 2024 and will provide a further 70 units ranging from two to five bedrooms. It will have its own Beach Club area and most of the properties will have sea views.
6. Puente Romano Villas. Puente Romano has just a dozen very exclusive villas and only a few are available to purchase or rent. They are designed with spacious interiors, including at least 4 bedrooms, private swimming pool and gardens, parking, sauna and even a gymnasium.
