Alanda Hotel Marbella is the first and only halal-certified hotel in Spain. A 4-star hotel with 199 rooms, located in the Golden Mile of Marbella, it is perfectly located only a few meters from the beach and a short walk to the city centre and the exclusive area of Puerto Banús.
The concept of Alanda Hotel Marbella was created in 2013, with the idea of integrated halal tourism in a cosmopolitan city such as Marbella. Halal Tourism is on the rise and many cities in Spain are not yet ready to receive Muslim tourists, which limits their visits to some destinations, or deviates tourists to other countries better prepared for this specialised tourism, such as the United Kingdom or France.
Alanda Hotel Marbella, therefore, offers Muslim clients a space to enjoy truly halal cuisine, without giving up a Mediterranean lifestyle, as the hotel is perfectly integrated in its environment.
The hotel is located near King Fahd Mosque, and offers Islamic amenities and facilities. Room have an indication pointing to the direction of Mecca, prayer mats are available, and rooms and services for specific purposes can be requested.
The facilities of the hotel are prepared for families, with suites and connected rooms, and a beach-effect swimming-pool, intended both for adults and children. The hotel also offers spa and hammam, beauty treatments and massage service.
This is a referent in Marbella, due to its location, facilities and services, as well as for their ability to welcoming travellers from other cultures. The customers come from different countries, such as Spain, United Kingdom, France and Morocco.
Its halal certification has favoured the increase of stays of Moroccan customers. The hotel states that “it being a neighbouring country, it is a potential sender of tourists, but currently they are choosing other destinations”.
Alanda Hotel Marbella works together with travel agents specialised in halal tourism and Andalusian circuits, as they know and value the halal certification as a guarantee for the Muslim client.
