The Michelin Guide has launched a new award, Michelin Keys, which shine a spotlight on leading hotels of the world.

In its inaugural edition, 97 hotels in Spain have been honoured with this distinction and, among them, is La Zambra Resort in Mijas, which has received its first Michelin Key.

Since its inauguration in 1984, formerly known as the Byblos Hotel, this jewel of the Costa del Sol is an oasis amidst the hustle and bustle of Malaga and Marbella.

One of the most luxurious social hubs of the Costa del Sol during the 1980s and 1990s, it was a favourite retreat for stars and royalty to enjoy privacy and disconnect from their hectic daily lives. The hotel celebrated its reopening in 2022 under the name La Zambra, completely refurbished and designed as a place for hedonism.

“When you walk through the gates, you enter a cloister-like setting with sweeping, immaculate courtyards, graceful arches, gurgling fountains and majestic palm and cypress trees”, the Michelin Guide says of La Zambra Resort, putting the spotlight on everything that has earned them a Michelin Key: “Peace and tranquillity reign around the aquamarine pools (especially the one reserved for adults), in the earth-toned suites overlooking the mountains and golf course and even in the bars and restaurants, overseen by a chef from San Sebastian and ideal for savouring drinks and tapas in the evening”.
