Marbella – The Ultimate Hen Party DestinationPosted by Georgia Mackenzie on June 8 2017.
Situated along the Costa del Sol, Marbella is Spain’s answer to St Tropez awash with chic shops, magnificent yachts harboured in the marina and a world-class clubbing scene. It also happens to be the ultimate hen party destination as we’re sure the towie lot would agree, with large groups of girls flocking to the little paradise every summer to experience what the town has to offer.
Begin your hen party with a trip to Puerto Banus featuring every shop imaginable, from Gucci to Agent Provocateur. Huge yachts are stationed all the way up the port, making it ideal grounds for posers…and the perfect place to enjoy a spot of people watching.
For a less expensive shopping alternative head to El Corte Ingles, Spain’s largest department store filled with high street favourites like Zara and Calzedonia, or similarly take a trip to Old Town Marbella which features an array of hidden individual boutiques.
For the ‘Best in Marbella’ experience head to the renowned Marbella Club Hotel; the haunt for the rich and famous including old Hollywood stars like Elizabeth Taylor and Audrey Hepburn. Having once been the home of Prince Alfonso von Hohenlohe, one is immediately greeted with an air of elegance and sophistication. Set amongst beautifully landscaped gardens on a prime beachfront location in the heart of the ‘Golden Mile’, relax with cocktails on the private beach and visit the famous hotel spa for a truly unforgettable hen-do.

Marbella is famous for it’s clubbing scene, of utmost concern for the discerning hen. To begin the night with sophistication (which won’t last long) head to Pangea in Puerto Banus, relatively well hidden amongst the lively clubs on the sea front. The club is a little haven situated on a luxury roof terrace with an incredible view of Marbella, a must visit for a glamorous start to the evening. It’s a good idea to reserve tables in advance as the hot spot gets very busy, particularly if you are a large group of girls.
Tibu Banus is another must visit when clubbing in the port, keeping you dancing until the early hours with International DJ’s and promoters such as Sintillate, Candypants, Dusk till Dawn and more. Open till 7am, this is the place for the hardcore hen…
Puerto Banus offers a main strip of clubs where the drinks are cheaper, allowing you to really settle into your drunken stride. From Irish and tourist favourite Linekers to the chic Seven, where the music is current and a shisha pipe is mandatory; the strip will have the ideal place for you. If the evening’s activities have digressed into a truly raucous state, there’s always the option to head to one of the strip clubs located along the strip.
