With is glowing new spa, generously geared up health club, and expansive pool, The Flag Costa del Sol provides modern well-being services on Andalucia’s hottest shoreline. But it’s additionally the spacious lodging of this hospitality model new to the coast, that units it aside. Studio suites and penthouses, with kitchens, make for a chic and light-filled dwelling away from dwelling for brief and lengthy stays, whereas eating at Seven M Estepona, led by Chef David Aguado, is a culinary spotlight.

Set a bit of again from the charming Costalita coast, west of Marbella, within the municipality of Estepona, the Flag Costa del Sol, is a placing piece of latest structure. Towering over the adjoining palm-height buildings, the resort, which opened on Andalucia’s Mediterranean coast final 12 months, provides visitors charming sea views from its light-filled studio flats, writes Andrew Forbes (The Luxurious Editor).§

From its authentic goal of lengthy stays, the resort within the final 12 months has pivoted in direction of the wellbeing market, for which is it ideally positioned, with its modern spa, health club, and train areas.

I discovered the property to be excellent for a brief break, even in the event you selected to not embrace the compelling well-being programmes, actions, and coverings.

Studio Lodging

I significantly just like the lodging, which fits nicely past a regular resort room and is definitely studio flats, obtainable for something for an evening or prolonged stays of weeks – you select. Views are out over the palm bushes and gardens in direction of the ocean.

My Grand Suite was a spectacular 100-120 sqm house, the right pad with a spacious front room with kitchen (together with dishwasher), a separate bed room with king mattress, and writing desk, and a rest room with a walk-in rain bathe. There was even a separate visitor W.C. The personal balcony ran alongside the complete house, furnished with a settee, chairs and eating desk. There was a separate sunbathing terrace overlooking the pool. 


Chef David Aguado designs the eating at Seven M Estepona. We started our culinary expertise with a leisurely lunch, devoured slowly, within the dappled daylight of an Andalusian late spring day. The resort’s Seven M Restaurant is open to the general public and though set inside the property, sharing the sun-soaked pool terrace, it feels aside, with it indulgent Andalucian dishes.

David Aguado has created a menu that’s a tempting mixture of Spanish flavours, from classics together with  Ibérico ham, sautéed clams, and prawn pil-pil to start out and hearty principal dishes like Malaga ‘chivo’ child goat, meats from the grill, in addition to lighter summer time favourites like Malaga tomato salad, or prawns with Andalucian avocado and mango. 

Our meal began with a bit of pre-starter of anchovy with cheese, a scrumptious gesture that set the tone. We ordered one of many market specials, the confit artichokes with Cecina cured beef – a mouthwatering twist on my favorite artichoke with ham. Then, because the restaurant is turning into identified for its rice dishes, we opted for the seafood rice with squid, which was well-presented and richly satisfying. 

I at all times have room for pudding – and the cheesecake and ‘Andalucian’ type tiramisu appeared the important decisions. 

Estepona’s Mediterranean Coast

The Flag Costa del Sol is on certainly one of my favorite stretches of coast, excellent for a beachside stroll, and a spot to attach with nature, the right complement to the wellness programmes and wholesome eating – leaving you, nurtured, refreshed, and rejuvenated mentally and bodily.
