MAR AZUL Resort, Estepona

A PEACEFUL OASIS IN A STUNNING SETTING


MARAZUL IS IN A PRIME SOUTH-FACING SEA-FRONT LOCATION ON THE "NEW GOLDEN MILE"  NEAR ESTEPONA TOWN, AND WITHIN A VERY SHORT WALK OF THE CAFES, BARS, & RESTAURANTS OF THE 5 STAR KEMPINSKI HOTEL & LAGUNA VILLAGE.

~~~~~~~~

The MARAZUL Resort is a relatively small complex comprised of only 72 apartments, along with a leisure club & reception area, all arranged in a South-facing "U" shape, the open end of which is beach & the Mediterranean Sea.  My raised ground floor apartment is on the right-hand-side of that zig-zag bridge.

~~~~~~~~

Within this appealing "U" shape is a vast & stunningly beautiful scalloped swimming pool with tropical islands, a vast overflowing bowl, underwater jacuzzi-deckchairs, two lovely zig-zag bridges, two character thatched cabanas with big soft sofas within, a complex of shallow canals perfect for the kids to play in, and all surrounded by lush vegetation, semi-tropical trees, and spectacularly coloured plants of all types.


~~~~~~~~ 

My apartment is in the dead centre of the view to the left, so overlooks all this.  It faces South East, so the Sun shines on the garden from early morning 'till about 4.00 in the afternoon.  It also has a spectacular view of the Sea because of its raised position.

The apartment has 2 bedrooms, and sleeps 6 adults (utilising a miraculous giant sofa-bed in the lounge) and 1 or 2 babies (for which we provide 2 cots & high-chairs). 

~~~~~~~~

This is the vast deep end of this amazing pool complex.  Being an "infinity pool", you can imagine you're swimming in the Sea, towards Africa or Gibraltar, both visible on clear days.  There's a pool-side cafe-bar on the opposite side in the peak Summer months.

~~~~~~~~

Here we look through the lounge towards the terrace, and your private lawn, and with the pools & gardens and the deep blue Mediterranean Sea as a backdrop.

Behind the camera, the dining area & kitchen with character marble "hatch" between.


~~~~~~~~


There is access from both the master-bedroom & lounge onto the terrace & your own private garden, both of which have stunning views over the pools & gardens & the Sea beyond.

There are just 5 steps down to the pools & gardens, or there's an alternative route for buggies or wheelchairs.


~~~~~~~~

For those parents with toddlers, my garden can be rendered "child-friendly" by the easy erection of the trellises, and a garden gate, seen in the photograph to the left.   

Here you can keep an eye on your children, whilst you enjoy the fantastic views over our magnificent gardens and pools, and with the deep blue Mediterranean Sea as a spectacular backdrop.  

~~~~~~~~


THE SEMI TROPICAL CLIMATE OF THE COSTA DEL SOL IS NORMALLY YOUR GUARANTEE THAT YOU'LL ENJOY A LOVELY HOLIDAY HERE ON THE COSTA DEL SOL.

~~~~~~~~


AND EVERY DAY OF YOUR HOLIDAYS IS AN IMPORTANT ONE !  
 

~~~~~~~~ 
 

YOU MAY NOT BE WANTING TO THINK ABOUT THIS RIGHT NOW.....

~~~~~~~~

BUT WHAT IF IT JUST GETS TOO HOT ?? 


~~~~~~~~

Then collect your book and go and relax in a comfortable arm-chair in one of our unique character cabanas.

~~~~~~~~

Close your eyes.....imagine that you are sitting in the shade of a palm tree on your very own tropical Island surrounded by deep blue sea lapping up by your feet.

~~~~~~~~

You'll not be far wrong !  These cabanas are surrounded on most sides by our deep blue swimming pools, the thatched roof is shading you from the heat of the midday sun, and there's the euphoric sound all around from a dozen enchanting sprinkling fountains.

~~~~~~~~

After your doze .... as your day-dream fades .... and reality focuses ..... you'll be very relieved to remember that the cold drinks and sliced pineapple in the fridge of your apartment are within VERY close reach !


~~~~~~~~ 

There is another nice retreat.  It's our MAR AZUL reception lounge.  You'll pass through this lounge on the way down to the leisure club.  This is a very pleasant & relaxing area, ideal for a solitary read, or for playing card games or board games with family & friends, or, alternatively, escaping from the grandchildren for a while.  Free WiFi available here too.

~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~ 

 

The covered part of our spacious terrace is a multi-functional area too.  During most of the day you can choose between Sun or Shade.  You choose.  And it will provide shelter from the odd shower or breeze.  

~~~~~~~~

Whatever the weather  you can still enjoy the  wonderful views from here over the gardens, pools & sea.  WiFi is available here also, for those who have to keep in contact with the world beyond this peaceful oasis.


~~~~~~~~

A top-of the range surround-sound system feeds music throughout the apartment including onto the terrace, and a 42" plasma TV in the lounge completes that picture.


~~~~~~~~

Outside living is what it's all about at MARAZUL. The lawned garden & terrace are wonderful places to sunbathe & dine....

.....the perfect place for an alfresco breakfast ( electric grill & extension lead supplied ! )

.....the perfect place to spread yourselves out during the day

.....the perfect place for a romantic supper at night....'till late

~~~~~~~~ 

BUT WHAT IF IT IS JUST A LITTLE COLD FOR SITTING OUTSIDE IN THE COOLER MONTHS ?

~~~~~~~~

.....Just crank up the under-floor heating (thermostats in every room), wind-up the air-climate controls, and you'll be as snug-as-a-bug-in-a-rug all day & all night.   And remember...the price you pay includes all the electricity you use.

~~~~~~~~

.....Or go pamper yourself in our indoor leisure centre, for which my guests have full & unlimited free access.

~~~~~~~~

It has a lovely heated pool with character fountains, and it is big enough for a good work-out swim. 

(It has a hydraulic lift for those with physical difficulties.)

Or partake of a paddle in our pair of pumice-pebble pools, designed of-course to reflexologically :-

"awaken the feet, reduce stress & tension, stimulate the heart & increase circulation, improve posture, enhance concentration and stimulate the creation of a stable personality."

WOW....this holiday WILL do you good !

~~~~~~~~ 

 ~~~~~~~~ 

And that's before you move into our well-equipped gym, or relaxing sauna. 

Then finally, just when you thought it was all over, you'll need to re-invigorate your body cells and rejuvinate your senses in our hydro-therapy shower !

 ~~~~~~~~ 

For the security conscious, there'll be no worries here at Mar Azul.

We've got more personal safety systems than we've ever needed, but the 3 smoke-alarms, 24 hour security, video-entry, wall safe, key-card access and panic-button all help to enhance the relaxed and care-free ambience here on MARAZUL.

~~~~~~~~ 

~~~~~~~~ 

Those canals on the left, interspersed with underwater jacuzzi deck-chairs, and filled with sparkling blue water flowing down from reservoirs in the upper-garden areas, provide perfect play-areas for our guests of every age group !  And they're just a few steps down from the apartment. (There's an alternative route available for buggies & wheel-chairs.)

~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~ 

Nothing will spoil any day of your holiday at MAR AZUL, whatever the Season, and whatever your age !


~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~

 

Just one I caught earlier.  ( Yes.....I should have moved that brush ! )
