Since it was first discovered by the world’s jet set in the late 1950s, Marbella has made a name for itself in luxury tourism. The resort ranks as one of southern Europe’s prime high-end destinations and has some of the finest tourist attractions in the world. It’s no surprise, therefore, that Traveller Made will be in town yet again for its annual summit on luxury tourism in Marbella.

Showcasing luxury tourism in Marbella

After the success of the meet in 2019, the world’s luxury tour operators come together again in Marbella for a 4-day conference at the end of March. The event will take place in the Congress Palace and showcase Marbella, the prime resort on the Costa del Sol.

Marbella features as one of Traveller Made’s preferred destinations and the company describes the resort as one of the finest in the world. It brings together the essential ingredients for a high-end holiday – select shopping, culture, gastronomy and accommodation.

Best golf in Marbella

Traveller Made describes the key aspects of Marbella with particular emphasis on sporting facilities, accommodation and gastronomy. When it comes to golf courses, it says that “15 splendid golf courses make Marbella one of the most attractive destinations for the practice of this sport”. Many of the golf courses in Marbella rank among the best in Spain and offer some of the most competitive green fees on the Costa del Sol . Discover why Rio Real is one of them. 

High-end hotels in Marbella

In terms of accommodation, the company states that “hotel facilities in Marbella are without a doubt some of the most varied and numerous on the Costa del Sol”.  When asked about his favourite hotels, CEO of Traveller Made, Quentin Desurmat, said that they’re “small, beautiful and cosy with great food and super service”. Criteria easily met by boutique hotels in Marbella, for example.

And for cuisine, Traveller Made says that “Marbella gastronomy is held up as a benchmark”. Not for nothing is the town home to several restaurants holding Michelin stars and others with the Bib Gourmand award.

Shopping in Marbella

As regular visitors to the resort know, shopping takes luxury tourism in Marbella to a whole new level. Puerto Banus has one of the best selections of high-end fashion boutiques in Europe with the world’s finest brands and designers all present at the premier marina. Marbella Old Town too offers a top-quality retail experience.
