A wealth of local culture, art and cuisine is at the heart and soul of Hotel Don Pepe Gran Meliá. Facing the waters of the Mediterranean, overlooking the Straits of Gibraltar and Africa, you can take a memorable boat trip, lose yourself in the narrow streets in the historic heart of Marbella or even journey through the Sierra Blanca mountains to Ronda, one of the oldest cities with the longest history in Spain.

A unique collection of experiences to help you discover Marbella from a very local perspective. Discover experiences that create unforgettable memories.

Memorable experiences that show the true essence of the destination. Like the opportunity to discover the Ronda mountains from the sea, learn more about the life of local fishermen or sail from Puerto Banús through the Straits of Gibraltar aboard a private yacht.

The Lady in Red opens the doors to exclusive experiences and will attend to all your needs. A way to travel inspired by the enjoyment of life at the heart of Spanish culture and a door to the discovery of local roots.

THE OLDEST TRADITION IN MARBELLA

Marbella is luxury and glamour, but it is also fishing. We have managed to combine all these qualities in a unique experience that will take you through the fishing district of Marbella and the port. Accompanied by our guide and biologist, we will take a tour through the fishing district and dry dock while we watch the fish being unloaded on the dock. 

We will then learn more about the history of the most common species found in the Mediterranean and the types of boats and fishing techniques that are used. Our guide will also teach us how to recognise fresh fish and the secrets of the auctions at the fish market. The final touch will be a cooking master class taught by the famous chef Álvaro Morales and an incredible dinner in Puerto Banús based on the delicious fish bought at the auction.

WHITE VILLAGES: MAGICAL AND UNIQUE

The province of Malaga is full of sun and beaches, the cradle of stunning art and delicious cuisine... And it is also mountains, scenery, narrow streets that breathe history and so much more. Hotel Don Pepe Gran Meliá invites you to discover the most authentic Andalusia in a journey through the heart of the White Villages, allowing you to get closer to what daily life was like in Al-Andalus.

Before reaching the villages, we will stop in for visits at sites like Casares and Gaucín. At the end of the White Villages tour, we will continue on to Ronda and visit its Monumental bullring and the stunning Tajo canyon. The next stop will be the "Descalzos Viejos" estate, a bodega alongside the river with spectacular views of the city. The experience continues with a tasting of local dishes paired with house wines.

The day ends returning to Marbella using the scenic route from Ronda to San Pedro de Alcántara, where clear days allow breathtaking views of the Straits of Gibraltar and Morocco.

EXOTIC TANGIER

So close yet at the same time so different and so exotic. Morocco is a country full of contrasts that are hard to not fall in love with. We invite you to discover Tangier in a day. One of the least developed destinations. In the country and with a more genuine feel.

Tangier is known for its variety of sensations and magical and exotic locations. The tour of the city will take us from the port to the caves of Hercules passing through the Royal Palaces, Cape Espartel...

Moroccan cuisine is as rich, diverse and colourful as its culture. After the tour, we will enjoy a typical lunch in one of the iconic restaurants in the Medina. The Bay of Tangier as a backdrop and a belly dance show for entertainment in the evening. Before leaving, we will provide you with some jars of the famous Argan oil, with multiple benefits for your skin.

FISHING AND CUISINE AT SEA

The passion of the sea experienced with all five senses through a perfect combination of tradition with the latest culinary innovations. A very marine environment in which to enjoy both the sea and the dining experience.

The day begins as we head out for Puerto Banús in a high-end vehicle. There the Captain will welcome us aboard a very special boat: an American Rodman 1250, perfect for a day at sea. A good fisherman needs to have many different qualities, but the most important one is patience. Once the ideal fishing grounds have been identified, the Captain and sailor will teach you more about the art of fishing...

RONDA FROM ON HIGH: AUTHENTIC ANDALUSIA AT YOUR FEET

The province of Malaga is full of sun and beaches, the cradle of stunning art and delicious cuisine... And it is also mountains, scenery, narrow streets that breathe history and so much more. We invite you to discover Ronda from the sky in a stunning helicopter tour. We move away from the coast flying over Marbella and into the Sierra de las Nieves mountains (formerly a refuge for bandits) and then continue through the Serranía de Ronda mountains dotted with white villages like tiny white cloaks over the land.

Finally we reach Ronda: elegant, historical, with architecture as unique as it is durable, seducing visitors with its majesty from the edge of a precipice. All very impressive, but even more so if you see it from the air. The old town, the bridges and the famous Tajo canyon. A magnificent trip accompanied by a typical Andalusian lunch at the exclusive La Donaira estate. An authentic homage to organic market cuisine adapted to your tastes and needs.

They say that everything good has to come to an end, but to make it more bearable, on the flight back we fly over the lakes of Zahara and more picturesque white villages before finally spotting the beautiful Costa del Sol in the distance in all its splendour.
