As from 2020, the phrase a room with a view in Malaga will take on a whole new meaning. In just over 3 years time, the Hotel Suites Malaga Port will open, offering panoramic views of the city and Mediterranean from the dizzy heights of 135 metres. Located at the far end of Malaga Port, near the Cruise Terminal, this iconic tower is set to change the Malaga skyline completely.
The iconic project was unveiled earlier this week and widely acclaimed by the local authorities, general public and the press. The Hotel Suites Malaga Port is the brainchild of a Qatari consortium and has been designed by the Spanish architect, José Seguí.
The photo below gives an artist’s impression of the hotel in Malaga Port. And compares its height to other tall buildings in Malaga.
About the hotel
Most of the hotel services will be on the ground floor, leaving the 35 floors for the suites. Downstairs will be a long list of extras – conference centre, auditorium, retail outlets, casino, infinity pool… At the very top, a restaurant and bar are planned – this will be serious roof-top dining in Malaga. The Hotel Suites Malaga Port will have 5-star grand luxe category, joining the Gran Hotel Miramar (due to open in early 2017) as the only two hotels in Malaga with this rating.
This video released by the architect’s studio shows exactly how the new hotel will look (we think this is pretty impressive).

New skyline for Malaga
This new hotel will undoubtedly change the skyline of Malaga and the iconic tower will be visible from all other the city. At Guide to Malaga, we’re looking forward to seeing it from our office window next to the industrial chimney and the cranes. And we feel that Malaga city needs an iconic tower of its own, like the Hotel Vela in Barcelona and the Torre Pelli in Seville. Roll on 2020!
