Homes fit for royalty as new routes launch to Puerto Banus.
According to new research from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, 30% of 18-24 year olds draw inspiration from celebrities when it comes to choosing their holiday destinations.
Crowded as it is with A-listers, it is hardly surprising then that Puerto Banus draws in hordes of visitors intent on holidaying like the stars. Now, however, holidaymakers can live like their icons too, thanks to the stunning new Royal Banus Marbella resort from leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey Espana.
Built in 1970 by local property developer José Banús, the marina and upscale shopping complex of Puerto Banus is one of the glitziest destinations on Spain’s Costa del Sol. Superyachts and high end cars cruise through the area each summer, inspiring varying degrees of envy in those who view them.
Interestingly, despite its luxury image, Puerto Banus doesn’t have to cost the earth, either as a holiday destination or as a location for a second home. Primera Air is launching a €35 budget route from Manchester to Malaga later this year, having already launched routes there from London Stansted and Birmingham in March 2018. Malaga has been the airline’s most in demand destination, reflecting the area’s ongoing appeal.
For those who want more than a few days of celeb-spotting in the sun, the exquisite homes at Royal Banus Marbella will certain hit the spot. Available from €490,000 + VAT, the six exclusive penthouses and 18 contemporary apartments will feature designer kitchens, large terraces and spacious living areas. The penthouses will also include private solariums.
A central pool, surrounded by wooden decking, is ideal for soaking up the Spanish sunshine and achieving that star-worthy suntan. The development also features interior gardens created around modern, sophisticated designs. Marble tiling, floor to ceiling windows and designer kitchen appliances ensure that the interiors are as glamorous as the exteriors.
