Named after the Hawaiian word for peace and compassion, Aloha occupies the eastern part of Nueva Andalucía, the luxurious residential area which has at its heart Marbella’s verdant Golf Valley.
Set closer to Marbella town and just a few short minutes from the glamorous bustle of Puerto Banús marina, with its designer outlets, restaurants, beach clubs and the large El Corte Inglés department store, Aloha enjoys lovely views of La Concha Mountain, the lovely fairways of the Aloha golf course and, from many perspectives, the Mediterranean Sea.
It is a mature, well-established residential area focused primarily upon the golf course it radiates outwards from, with many of the villas, townhouses and apartments in Aloha enjoying fantastic frontline golf views. The clubhouse is said to be one of the most charming in Marbella, with a lively membership, many of whom own properties in the immediate area or live here year-round. Aloha is also the site of one of the most prestigious international colleges on the Costa del Sol. Aloha College takes children from primary school right through to university entrance, and offers a wide of nationalities diverse sports and cultural facilities too.
Eating out in Aloha
In spite of its proximity to the shops, supermarkets and restaurants of Marbella and Puerto Banús, Aloha also has its own charming hub of fine dining, entertainment and shops in Aloha Pueblo. In addition to a great choice of cuisines, it is a fun area to enjoy an evening out, yet doesn’t detract from the peace and tranquillity of the residential areas of Aloha, which are centred upon the golf course a little to the east. Nearby are the tennis club of Los Naranjos and the nine-hole course at La Dama de Noche, complementing a very complete lifestyle offering on the edge of Puerto Banús and Marbella town.
