A hideaway meant
for discovery

la zambra baile flamenco

Located between Malaga and Marbella, the former Byblos hotel – a hedonistic icon of the 80s and 90s – is reborn as La Zambra.

More than meets the eye

Completely renovated, our luxury resort in Mijas – Marbella has everything you need to relax, unwind, and take in the gorgeous Andalusian architecture, and that’s how it lulls you. Settle in our 5-star hotel and find that every space invites you to look closer, dive deeper, enquire, and desire.


Nothing is overt, everything is considered…

A sanctuary, a den, a meditative space, a private playground… Your room — however you wish to enjoy it — awaits.

Mijas, Costa del Sol.
The cool kid of bohemian luxury. The perfect unruly indulgence. A top-of-the-line rebel retreat.
