The Venue

Nikki Beach Marbella is the Spanish branch of Jack Penrod’s Nikki Beach, and ‘the first and original luxury beach club concept’. The progenitor of the luxury beach clubs of today, Nikki looks to combine music, dining, entertainment and audio visual media and art all into one clubbing experience across all of its international venues ranging from Thailand to Monte Carlo. Over the years since 1998 and across it’s various venues, Nikki Beaches have played host to fashion shows, art curations, music festivals and film premieres featuring Hollywood A-list talent from all over the world. The Marbella branch consists of an expansive structure of luxury decking, a colossal infinity pool overlooking the deep ocean blues of the Mediterranean surrounded by spotless white cotton sunbeds and parasols. The decking also allows for stage areas, a Lifestyle boutique and and octagon bar so you’re never too far away from that next cocktail. To top it off, the Beach Club restaurant sells gourmet cuisine at market prices so whether its sushi, grilled steak, tapas or the local catch of the day, Nikki Beach Marbella will see you right.

The Events

As well as being one of the finest sun spots in the entire Costa Del Sol Region, Nikki Beach Club is also, first and foremost, a venue. And since this is Nikki Beach, you can bet your sandals the calendar is packed full of various events, live sets, performances pieces, burlesque, circus performances and full moon parties. It’s also worth pointing out there’s a traditional celebration of nautical culture in Marbella, so expect many cruises and yachting parties to pass by and dock near Nikki Beach’s glistening white sands. Nautical and pirate themed parties run rampant at Nikki beach though it’s important to know that Marbella takes it’s location and natural beauty very seriously. No debaucherous Ibiza raves here; Nikki Beach celebrates a nightlife that finds harmony in its surroundings.

VIP and Travel

Nikki Beach Marbella additionally offers the near obligatory VIP option for those looking to rent out private functions for themselves.

Ever wanted to get married on the Spanish Gold Coast? Well now you can.
