Marbella, 15th September 2023. As the summer almost draws to a close, this Friday the 15th of September, El Fuerte Marbella hotel celebrated its opening party. An event led by Isabel María García Bardón, honorary president of Fuerte Group Hotels, which concludes its first summer season following its recent renovation and becoming a 5-star hotel once again.

The event was attended by representatives of local, provincial, and regional institutions, such as the national representative for Malaga, Elías Bendodo; the general secretary of Tourism of Andalusia, Yolanda de Aguilar; the president of the Malaga Provincial Council, Francisco Salado; and the mayor of Marbella, María Ángeles Muñoz. From the tourism and business sector, Javier González De Lara attended, the president of the Confederation of Employers of Andalusia and Malaga.

The evening, which took place during after work hours, had the model and presenter María José Suárez as the master of ceremonies, in charge of introducing the various institutional speeches that preceded the cutting of the inauguration ribbon done by the honorary president of Fuerte Group Hotels, the five Luque García brothers and the director of El Fuerte Marbella, María José Antúnez.

At the event, there were also some very touching moments, from the speech by the honorary president of Fuerte Group Hotels to the tribute to Pedro Guerrero, who started working as a bellboy in the beginnings of El Fuerte and walked Walt Disney’s famous dog, Pluto. He even starred as an extra in the 1960 British film “Holiday in Spain”, alongside actors such as Peter Lorre and Diana Dors.

The event concluded with a small cocktail for all the guests, along with guided tours of the facilities so that they could get to know this emblematic hotel located in the centre of Marbella in detail.

The rebirth of an icon

After a huge renovation in which €31 million was invested (14 million in construction, 10 million in equipment, and 7 million in expenses such as licenses, fees, and opening costs, among others), the renovated hotel, boasting 266 rooms, has once again welcomed national and international tourists who seek to be part of the city’s history and enjoy a 5-star experience.

In this way, this emblematic hotel, witness of the history of the Costa del Sol, has started a new chapter, reconverted into a 5-star hotel with an ambitious interior design project led by Jaime Beriestain in which the local and cultural richness, artisanal tradition and relaxed Mediterranean essence stand out.

The new Fuerte Marbella combines warm, harmonious, and open spaces that are inspired by huge Andalusian palaces or farmhouses, with earthy colours, terracottas, and warm, natural, and vegetal tones, always with a timeless vision.
