BANGKOK, 25 April 2019: Minor Hotels and NH Hotel Group have signed an agreement to operate the Villa Padierna Palace, a hotel located in Marbella in the south of Spain.
The property is owned by the Villa Padierna group and will be managed with immediate effect under a variable lease agreement.
Following Minor Hotels’ acquisition of NH Hotel Group in October 2018, this agreement will see the first integration of the two companies’ portfolio of brands, with Villa Padierna to be rebranded to Minor Hotels’ core luxury brand Anantara Hotels Resorts & Spas in the coming months.
Minor Hotels and NH Hotel Group are bringing all of their hotel brands under a single corporate umbrella, now giving them a presence in over 50 countries worldwide.
Located near three Costa del Sol golf courses, the property will be relaunched as Anantara Villa Padierna Palace Benahavis Marbella Resort, and will become the first Anantara in NH Hotel Group’s home market of Spain and the second Anantara in Europe, the first being the Anantara Vilamoura Algarve Resort in Portugal which launched two years ago.
Surrounded by three golf courses, the 130-room Villa Padierna is located in the middle of the region’s ‘Golden Triangle’ made up of Marbella, Benahavís and Estepona.
