Decisions decisions - would you rather have the Audrey Hepburn glow or try the Brigitte Bardot beautifier? Let's face it, looking like either style icon is pretty appealing. And in time for National Spa Week (20 - 26 September), the Marbella Club Golf & Spa resort has launched four special spa packages at its Thalasso spa, all inspired by its glamorous former guests.
The Spanish resort has been a favourite of the rich and famous for over 50 years, including Hollywood stars and more than a few royal guests, with Michelle Obama also visiting the Costa del Sol town this August.
The packages start at around £230 for the Grace Kelly Energiser, including a session in the dynamic seawater pool, leg revival and shiatsu, as well as the rejuvenating Audrey Hepburn Glow for £275, the toning Liz Taylor Diamond Diet at £300 and the Brigitte Bardot Beautifier at £312, packing in an anti-ageing facial and sea wrap.
But if you can tear yourself away from the hammam and treatment rooms, there's more than just sunshine to tempt you to Marbella. Tucked between the Mediterranean and the Sierra Blanca mountains, a little further along the coast is Puerto Banus, for some yacht-spotting.
In Marbella itself, El Museo de Grabado – the Print Museum – and a string of small art galleries are perfect if you want a spot of culture, and there's boutiques galore to window shop. And wander through the historic old quarter, with its narrow streets and flower-filled balconies, and architecture that's a mix of Andalucian and Moorish styles.
Quick facts: The 'Hollywood Icon' packages are available now. Classic Rooms start at around £250 based on two people sharing. Visit www.marbellaclub.com for more information, or email firstname.lastname@example.org to book.
