What makes a great hotel - Nobu hotel group knows...
I have a confession: I have an obsession with hotels. For me, how a hotel can make me feel is just as important as its location. I want a hotel to seamlessly fit into its surroundings; offer slick but friendly check in, luxurious bedding with pillows you melt into, exceptional food, chilled light rose served in beautiful thin glasses and, most importantly, excellent sun loungers. All services and elements offered by the luxurious Nobu Hotels, who currently have properties in Miami, Manila, Las Vegas and Malibu, with new London and Ibiza offerings having opened this summer.
For me these hotels have everything - fitting perfectly into their surroundings, offering renowned and incredible restaurants, wonderful public spaces, high energy bars for buzzy evenings spent drinking cocktails and - for the day after - a restorative spa experience! I feel like I could visit any of the properties with my family, a group of girlfriends or as a couple – they truly offer something for everyone. Victoria Beckham even recently celebrated her 43rd Birthday at Nobu, Malibu!
Maybe the easiest way of experiencing one of the Nobu properties is with a staycation at Nobu Shoreditch in the heart of London’s artistic quarter. The hotel offers 143 guest rooms and 7 suites, meeting spaces, a lobby bar and, of course, a 240-seat restaurant that spans almost the entire footprint of the hotel. There is also an exclusive 10 seat Sushi bar and an 18 seat chefs table where you can watch the expert chefs at work – a real spectacle.
Inspired by your visit to Nobu London, why not then look to the new opening in Ibiza? With no fixed agendas - breakfast being served at your leisure and spontaneous lunches blending into highly spirited nights, this hotel oozes relaxation and balance. It also offers four restaurants, two seafront pools, a boutique, kids club, spa, a top notch nail bar and a blow dry salon – dreamy!
I’ll be travelling to Marbella next week and will be visiting the Nobu restaurant at The Puente Romano Beach Resort & Spa - another fabulous hotel! Stay tuned for updates.
