guests hotel boutique hotel Marbella

A luxury boutique hotel with great views – The Urban Villa is an abode recommended among friends, where you will be made to feel totally at home…

Join Linda, her son Christopher and the team for an unforgettable holiday in this idyllic luxury hotel with five stunning suites nestled in the mountains above the city of Marbella. You will be made to feel at home and be able to totally relax in this little hideaway, so close to Marbella’s famous beaches, golf courses, exclusive Puerto Banús marina and the exciting Andalusian lifestyle. This privileged location with breathtaking views of the coastline, Africa and Gibraltar Rock, really make this Marbella boutique hotel stand out from any other!

After travelling extensively (including crossing the Atlantic three times by yacht, visiting the jungles of Venezuela and Peru, climbing to Macchu Picchu and much more) and learning three languages, Linda came to Spain in 2007 to give her son the chance to learn Spanish. Having previously worked in event management, gastronomy, cruise ships and private yachts, when she was asked by the previous owners if she knew anyone who wanted to have a bed and breakfast, she jumped at the chance to put all her knowledge and skills into practice and create something very special.

Over the last few years she has built a unique bed and breakfast, with a strong team which attracts fabulous people from all over the world, many of whom have become friends and come back time and time again to enjoy Linda’s wonderful hospitality and the great setting.

“Our small Team love to serve and ensure our guests have a fabulous stay. Our cook Suny, makes delicious food from her heart and most of our guests prefer to eat at “home” to spoil their taste buds. Our cleaner & maintenance man Byron is always in a good mood and cleans with an infectious smile and goes overboard when anyone thanks him. Irene our receptionist fusses around our guests and helps to organise anything guests need to make sure they are enjoying themselves, from booking balloon flights or a guided trip to Morocco to reserving a table in a local restaurant. We are not perfect, we try our best but I believe that sometimes the little imperfections, which one can laugh about, makes it nearly perfect!”

We will go out of our way to create a memorable experience, unique to you, making you feel special and pampered. We love to see guests leave us looking renewed, refreshed and ready to face their daily lives when it is time to go back home, heading back with many special memories.

We look forward to sharing this special place with you. See you soon in sunny Marbella!
