If are looking for ideas for a chic city break or for an exotic destination, I’m going to have it covered. Here is my jewellery & fashion diary from the latest trip to Puente Romano Marbella.


The beautiful country of Spain has become my go-to destination to unwind and party while enjoying its diverse natural landscapes. Read about my visits of El Lodge Sierra Nevada and Nobu Marbella hotels.

This time I decided to pay Marbella another visit and cross the luxurious Puente Romano Marbella off my hotel bucket list. Just a 40 min drive from the Málaga-Costa del Sol Airport, you will find yourself in the Mediterranean paradise on the beachfront of the Golden Mile Costa del Sol between Marbella and Puerto Banus.


I could have stayed in such a gorgeous place for ever! With 183 guest rooms, 3 luxury villas, 3 swimming pools, a spa, 12 restaurants and a fun nightclub, Puente Romano Marbella resort is a destination in itself offering all vacation activities on the spot. As every detail is carefully thought through and and every wish of the guest is looked after, no wonder Puente Romano is a member of ‘The Leading Hotels of the World’!

Puente Romano Marbella is set amidst beautifully landscaped botanical gardens with access to a large golden sand beach – I knew right away I’ll leave this place completely refreshed and reenergised. Indulging my eyes in the charm of the pearl-white villages scattered across the Andalusian hillside is what I needed before my next adventure in the vibrancy of Las Vegas jewellery shows.


My stay at Puente Romano Marbella started with a tour of my Villa Pereza. With four spacious bedrooms, each with an ensuite marble bathroom, private heated pool and lush green area of 800 m² just to myself, I was spoiled as never before!

Envisioned by bespoke interior designer Jean Pierre Martel, the lounge and dining area are infused with modern Mediterranean hues – one of my favourite styles that made me feel right at home! My stay was made even more unforgettable by the incredible sea views and direct access to the beach and hammock area.



Awarded Spain’s Best Resort Spa 2016 by World Spa Awards Puente Romano’s sleek Six Senses Spa has a wet area with a hydrotherapy pool, cold plunge pool, herbal steam room, sauna and hammam. With an emphasis on local products from Spanish mountain herbs to olive oil, I had a hard time choosing a treatment with so much signature massages and facials on the menu.


A cocktail by the pool was exactly what I needed after the flight. With three large pools it’s entirely up to the guests as to where they want to spend a few relaxing hours. The Beach Club Pool is family friendly and located down on the sands with a joyous atmosphere. The Main Pool and Central Pools are surrounded by beautiful sub-tropical gardens and have a more laid back vibe.


With 12 restaurants at Puente Romano Marbella to choose from, you won’t go hungry! From Michelin-star-holding chef tapas dishes at Dani Garcia Restaurante to fresh local seafood options at El Chiringuito where I enjoyed myself at a beach party party oganised by Casamigos. My personal favourites: Rachel’s for gluten free healthy snacks and Nobu Restaurant for signature Japanese dining experience.


For slick night-clubbing, head to La Suite after midnight to hear international DJs in action. In the summer, claim a sofa at La Plaza and soak up the sunshine as you sip refreshing cocktails. How very convenient it was to have a villa next door to Marbella’s chicest nightclub!


Dress to impress! Prepare to chill by the pool in your best swimming suit and beachwear. Get my Maldives and Bali beach looks on GEMOLOGUE Style. With so many photo worthy spots, you’ll want to look all sparkly! I went for pearls & gold as well as my personalised pendantto which makes me feel at home wherever I am. And don’t forget your tennis shoes: Puente Romano has its own clay courts on site.
