July 10, 2020 // Franchising.com // Spain - Hilton (NYSE: HLT) today announced the signing of an agreement to open the Conrad Costa del Sol - a 194 room luxury resort set to bring a new level of contemporary luxury to the Andalusian coast. The property - owned by Markway Inversiones S.L., a company of the Platinum Estates Group, will be managed by Hilton and is set to open at the beginning of 2022. It will be Hilton’s first Conrad property in Spain.
Carlos Miró, Managing Director, Development - Spain and Portugal, Hilton said: “The Costa del Sol is an incredibly popular destination with holidaymakers from all over Europe and beyond, thanks to its year-round good weather, expansive beaches and stunning scenery. This property - our first Conrad Hotels & Resorts property in Spain - represents an important step for Hilton, as we look to expand our footprint of luxury properties across Europe. We look forward to welcoming guests to this stunning hotel.”
Roshni Mohinani, President of Platinum Estates ltd. said: “We are delighted to announce our agreement with Hilton to operate this hotel under the prestigious Conrad brand, and we look forward to continuing to work closely with our valued partners in the local community to bring this project to life. The beautiful Costa del Sol continues to attract domestic and international tourists alike, and we see great potential for investment in this area.”
The new hotel will join a collection of award-winning Conrad Hotels and Resorts spanning five continents. Each property features contemporary luxury experience, intuitive service and infinite connections with local culture, powered by the latest innovation.
Conrad Costa del Sol will be no exception, boasting stunning sea views from its vantage point in the Andalusian hills, with spacious contemporary guestrooms and expansive luxurious facilities including a large spa with indoor pool, multiple outdoor pools, two bars and a high-end restaurant. The Costa del Sol’s vast coastline, which is home to more beaches than any other area of the Andalucía region, is a five-minute drive away.
Nils-Arne Schroeder, Global Head for Conrad Hotels & Resorts, said: “From Bora Bora, Koh Samui and The Maldives in Asia to the Algarve and Istanbul in Europe, the Conrad brand is renowned for its award-winning hotels and resorts. This property, which exemplifies the contemporary design, beautiful facilities and connection to local culture with personalised experiences which guests expect from the Conrad brand, is a fitting first entry into Spain. We aim to bring the sophistication of the Conrad brand to key locations all over the world and we are looking forward to introducing our unique luxury to the Costa del Sol.”
The Costa del Sol attracts millions of international and domestic tourists each year, with visitors drawn to its sandy coastline, glamourous harbours and charming remote villages. The area benefits from excellent rail and air connections to the rest of Spain, Continental Europe and the UK from Malaga, which is located just over an hour from the resort.
The Conrad Costa del Sol will join a portfolio of exquisite luxury hotels across the world, including Conrad Algarve - home to Gusto by Heinz Beck, Conrad Maldives Rangali Island and Conrad Bali, Conrad Bora Bora and Conrad Koh Samui.
