Whether you are looking for fresh seafood, a romantic dinner under the moonlight, or beachside cocktails with live music, you will find it at Villa Padierna Palace Hotel. Head Chef Cristóbal Gómez offers five rich and unique culinary experiences, bringing the best flavors, techniques, and produce to your plate from across Spain.
La Veranda – In the main building, La Veranda offers classical cuisines with the chef’s personal spin, including a menu inspired by local history. The star of the show is the grilled mixed-seafood platter, followed by lagrima de chocolate — chocolate teardrops filled with white chocolate and served with a dark chocolate quenelle.
La Loggia – Try the highest quality Italian food, such as pasta frutti di mare and truffled wild mushroom risotto, or a selection of fresh fish and beef. Sit out on the terrace to take in panoramic views of the sea, and on a clear day, look for the Rock of Gibraltar or the shores of North Africa.
La Pergola – This tranquil summertime restaurant is perfect for a refreshing cocktail or light lunch. Take a break from the sun under the shade of a climbing vine, surrounded by gardens, marble fountains, and a swimming pool.
Santoku – Sample the highest quality fresh seafood from a menu that blends Mediterranean character with Japanese culinary art. The eatery is named for the knife used by Japanese chefs meaning “three virtues.”
Club de Mar – Sip your favorite cocktail on the sand beneath a canopy of palm trees. Then watch the sunset while feasting on lobster served three ways or choose from the extensive caviar menu.
Play a round or two at Villa Padierna Golf Club with spectacular views of the Mediterranean, or brush up at the only golf school in Europe specializing in short game. It is headed by Michael Campbell, who beat Tiger Woods in the 2005 U.S. Open. After some perfect putting on pristine greens, unwind in The Villa Padierna Medical Wellness Institute, one of Europe’s biggest spas, with 12 treatment rooms. Try a Greek or Finnish sauna, thermal circuit, or orange and lemon oil shower.
In the heart of Spain’s Golden Triangle, between Marbella, Benahavis, and Estepona, you have the best of the Andalucia within driving distance. Take a day trip to Ronda, Seville, Granada, or Cordoba to discover some of Spain’s most enchanting sites. Go shopping in Gibraltar, hop over to the mythical Tangiers, or escape to the beach that’s close by.
