Moroccan haven

Jun 05, 2011 No Comments by

Walking down the narrow corridor I speculated what would appear when I emerged at the other end. Due to the exclusivity of the entrance, I envisaged an intimate, elite nightclub and restaurant, where Marbella’s epicureans enjoy lavish evenings, distanced from the touristic hustle and bustle of Puerto Banus. Thankfully, my imagination was somewhat correct and the establishment I entered was indeed a million miles away from the crowds filling the streets of Puerto Banus.

The strikingly, authentic Moroccan décor was what first caught my attention, stepping onto the Arabic rugs and through the delicate archways and huge carved wooded doors you find yourself by the bar, overlooking the angelic but prominent restaurant. It was at this point, with the aromatic fragrances from the kitchen circulating the room, I regretted visiting Suite after dinner, and promised myself my next visit would be for the complete gastronomic experience. If it wasn’t for the time, almost midnight, and that the restaurant was rapidly decreasing in size, I probably would have enjoyed my second meal of the evening. However it was the diminishing restaurant that caught my attention and distracted me from my deceptive stomach.

As if by magic, within what seemed like the touch of a button, the previously apparent restaurant was transformed into the most exclusive of nightclubs. Tables topped with colossal bottles of the world’s most select spirits appeared at the peripheries of the room, making way for the consistently growing dance floor. Seductive music bounced off the walls, whilst an array of nationalities absorbed the nightclub environment that had recently been created. Shocked and baffled at the transformation, I decided to purchase an unnecessarily expensive drink and investigate the other intimate cavern’s speckled across the corridor. En route, I fell across the al-fresco smoking area and consequently took a wander outside, I can only describe my finding as surreal, being a regular visitor to the Puente Romano bar I couldn’t ignore the fact that I was actually enjoying a cigarette where I had previously witnessed flamenco shows and live music whilst dining in the hotel. This only added to the complete bewilderment I had experienced during the evening. Once I had gathered my thoughts, I continued on my path to the rear of the club, stepping into a Moroccan inspired chill out area, complete with rustic lamps, exuding an ambiance reminiscent of ancient Andalucía.
