Gran Hotel Miramar
Following an investment of close to 65m Euros, this landmark historic building in Malaga underwent a complete overhaul in 2017 to become Gran Hotel Miramar, establishing itself as one of Europe’s foremost grand hotels. Celebrating 90 years last December, this magnificent building, designed by celebrated Spanish architect Fernando Guerrero Strachan and inaugurated in 1926 by King Alfonso XIII as the Hotel Principe de Asturias, has undergone many incarnations including a stint as a field hospital during the Spanish Civil Wars and a 20-year period as the city’s courthouse. The building was painstakingly renovated to restore it to its former glory, preserving or returning many of its original features including intricate Moorish carved wood arches, a beautiful first floor gallery, Andalucían tiling, hand painted frescoes and ornate stucco ceilings. The resulting grand hotel, set amongst beautifully landscaped grounds, features 200 rooms and suites, a fabulous ballroom, 17 further meeting spaces, three restaurants and bars including a rooftop chill out zone and spa spanning two floors among its facilities.
