The term “Golden Mile” was coined in the early 1980’s by Roy Boston, the German singer turned successful property developer, who had an untimely death in the late 1980’s, and for whom a road has been named near his prize-winning development Alhambra del Mar, on the edge of Marbella City.
Marbella’s “Golden Mile” starts at the western edge of Marbella City and extends for some 5 kilometres as far as the Río Verde, which is just before Puerto Banús and Nueva Andalucía, and stretches up to the La Concha Mountain, which gives Marbella its special micro-climate. It was given its name due to the numerous beautiful estates and establishments within this area, including the Marbella Club Hotel, and the many beachside mansions adjacent to it, where the origins of quality tourism in Marbella began in 1954; the Puente Romano Hotel; and beautiful estates (urbanizations) such as Camojan, Marbella Sierra Blanca, Las Lomas del Marbella Club, the development of the Bismarck family known as the Marbella Hill Club, and Rocío de Nagüelles. Individual estates include many of the most magnificent mansions in Marbella, not the least of which are the Palaces of King Fahad and his brother Prince Salman bin Abdel Aziz, and those of many other personalities.
Also located along the Golden Mile are the two offices of Panorama Properties, one in the Hotel Puente Romano and the other just opposite the Marbella Club Hotel.
