Gran Hotel Miramar
Absolutely stunning hotel. Gran Hotel Miramar is the first grand luxury hotel ever built in the ancient Andalusian city of Málaga. A historic landmark with beautiful rooms, large pool area and perfect location in front of the beach.
After been painstakingly restored following a two year, 65m Euros overhaul, Gran Hotel Miramar has re-emerged as one of Europe’s foremost grand dames, firmly establishing Malaga on the global luxury travel map. The iconic building was designed by celebrated Spanish architect Fernando Guerrero Strachan, and inaugurated in 1926 by King Alfonso XIII as the Hotel Principe de Asturias.
Gran Hotel Miramar has undergone many incarnations since then, including a stint as a field hospital during the Spanish Civil War and a 20- year period as the city’s courthouse. The assiduous renovation returned this majestic edifice to its former glory, preserving or revitalising many of its original features, including intricate Moorish carved wood arches, a beautiful first floor gallery, Andalusian tiling, hand-painted frescoes and ornate stucco ceilings.
