There was a time when a luxurious villa in Marbella featured a swimming pool, multi-car garage and maybe a grand study, library and/or games room with bar and snooker table, but modern homes have come a long from way since then, and now feature luxuries that were once restricted to opulent resorts.
The deluxe resort hotel has now come into the domain of private villas, for the finest homes and mansions these days feature exotic things such as sleek heated outdoor swimming pools, beautifully lit areas such as bespoke dressing rooms, designer kitchens whose state-of-the-art appliances disappear at the touch of a button, integrated entertainment and cinema zones, car garages cum art galleries and even private bowling alleys – but it is the home spa that has really revolutionised luxury in today’s top-spec properties.
As specialists in luxury villas for sale in Marbella, we offer a prime selection of homes that feature private spas to rival the finest hotels. Here is a small selection:
La Zagaleta mansion spa
This five-bedroom villa in the select country club of La Zagaleta blends contemporary and Mediterranean architectural design influences that house 722m2 of built space surrounded by panoramic terraces and gorgeous landscaped gardens. The spa that occupies the lower floor communicates directly with the garden and is flooded with natural light and fantastic views over the valleys, golf course and wooded hills of La Zagaleta – as well as the Mediterranean Sea shimmering in the distance.
The centrepiece is the stunning heated indoor swimming pool, flanked by beautifully appointed sauna, steam room, treatment rooms, lounge and bar areas, games room, dressing areas, as well as a private gym with top-spec equipment.
Sierra Blanca spa villa
This Sierra Blanca villa boasts another fine example of a private spa, complete with its own gym, Jacuzzi, showers, his and her changing facilities and bathrooms, and of course indoor swimming pool, Turkish bath and sauna. Overlooking nearby Marbella town and Puerto Banús, the villa finds itself within an exclusive gated community bordering the protected mountain scenery of La Concha Mountain.
Classical spa opulence in Guadalmina Baja
For a more classical spa environment, this stunning beachside mansion in Guadalmina Baja has all the palatial beauty of a five-star deluxe hotel – and then some. The private spa amenities include the full set of sauna, steam bath, Jacuzzi, indoor pool, gym and also various showers and hot and cold baths, but above all it is the style that impresses and sets the tone for a truly sensory experience.
