There's an old-world charm to the grand halls and gardens of this classic estate. You'll find your room decorated with classic tones and beautiful artworks, complete with travertine bathrooms and palazzo-style linens. Suites offer extra space and dedicated lounge areas, upgraded marble bathrooms, and in some cases, private terraces perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine. For a truly exceptional experience, the hotel's villas offer butler service, private patios and pools, and in the case of the Obama Villa, three storeys of pure luxury, including a rooftop terrace with views of the Mediterranean.

Anantara Villa Padierna boasts no less than eight dining venues with a range of local and world cuisine. There's “O” by Paco Roncero, an intimate, frescoed setting serving up Andalusian haute cuisine by two-star Michelin chef Paco Roncero. Eddy’s Baro offers a creative cocktail menu and light gourmet bites, while Club de Mar serves caviar and lobster with sparkling coastal views. La Pérgola is ideal for a light snack by the pool, and La Loggia, which overlooks the lake to the Rock of Gibraltar, has a menu with a strong Italian influence. Perhaps most unique is 99 Sushi Bar & Restaurant, which brings a taste of authentic Japanese to this Spanish resort's serene lake setting.

Villa Padierna is perfectly placed to enjoy everything the Andalusian region has to offer, from award-winning vineyards to Moorish castles and grand palaces. You're in close proximity to towns and cities such as Marbella and Estepona, Granada, Sevilla, Córdoba, Gibraltar and Tangiers. In the resort itself, there's plenty to do, including swimming, tennis, horse riding and diving, as well as a beach club, reached by complimentary shuttle, and plenty of children's activities. And, keen golfers will want to take advantage of three world-class golf courses, offering some of the finest play in the Costa del Sol, in addition to a further 40 courses in the surrounding area.
