MAR AZUL is comprised of only 72 super-luxurious apartments in an exclusive resort on a prime South-facing sea-front location on the “New Golden Mile” between Marbella and Estepona, only 50 minutes drive from Malaga Airport.

MAR AZUL’s outstanding beach-front location is enhanced by the close proximity of the three greatest attractions on this coast-line.

First, and virtually next door, we have the world-renowned Kempinski Hotel Bahia Estepona, fully-fitted with “five superior stars”, and facilities to match.

Second, our latest addition, the “LAGUNA VILLAGE”, consisting of 30 exclusive shops, a luxurious beach-club with heated swimming pool, several top-of-the-range restaurants, and unique café / bistros. Within an easy 6 minute walk along the promenade, and like no other shopping centre in the world, the “LAGUNA VILLAGE” offers the opportunity to take a refreshing dip in a pool or drink a cocktail on the beach, in between visits to a variety of prestigious stores, cafes, bars and restaurants in this tropical oasis.

And Third, the Selwo Adventure Park, just five minutes drive away. Here you get REALLY close-up to more than 2,000 animals from every continent, living in semi-freedom in a huge wilderness covering a million square metres. A fascinating tour can be made in a four-wheel drive truck that crosses the different landscapes of Africa without actually moving away from the Costa del Sol. Then take the short-cut back on foot, across several overhead rope walkways, and through the biggest aviary in Europe, an utterly enchanting valley totally enclosed in netting ! If there’s a MUST-DO for all the family, this is it !

All this at the heart of Europe’s favourite recreational area, all the other outstanding features of which are within a palm’s reach:- the ultra-fashionable shops, jet-set lifestyle, and famous people synonymous with Marbella; the amazing marina, fabulous luxury yachts, and equally high-class bars & night-clubs of Puerto Banus; the relaxing ambiance of traditional Spanish tapas bars in the lovely cobbled squares in nearby Estepona town; the prestigious golf-courses including those very nearby of Los Flamingos and El Paraiso.

MAR AZUL’s exclusive resort apartments are arranged in an appealing “V”-shape, but designed in such a way that each apartment is provided with the individual and intimate privacy that one might expect from a detached villa. The open end of the “V” is purely beach and sea! At the point of the “V” is the MAR AZUL reception and leisure club.

Arranged within the “V” are exuberant and colourful tropical gardens and a unique inner world of spectacular sculptured swimming pools, ponds, canals, fountains, and cascading waterfalls, enhanced by elegant features such as sunken jacuzzi deck-chairs and big comfortable settees under thatched-roofed cabanas offering hideaways of peace and tranquillity. Both the MAR AZUL beach-bar (open peak times) and main “infinity pool” are right on the beachside, with totally panoramic views over the sea to Africa & Gibraltar. All this complemented by a micro-climate of 320 days annual sunshine !

The “V”-shape that the apartments on MAR AZUL define ensures that all the apartments have glorious sea-views, and because the complex is South-facing, all apartments receive their full share of the Sun. My raised ground floor apartment is literally within a stone’s throw of the beach, and just five privacy steps up from the pool and garden complex. It overlooks the central pool area, beyond that the “infinity pool”, and then …..sea…..sea…..more sea…..and the occasional ship !
