Chambao Marbella

After much anticipation, Chambao by the Sea has finally opened at Puente Romano Beach Resort, and we’re thrilled to say, it exceeds all expectations. This gem, part of the Nobu Hotel Marbella, is a laidback boutique beach & pool club with an Andalucian flavour  inviting guests to stroll in from the beach with family or friends, embracing its relaxed seaside ambiance.

From Ibiza to Marbella: The Story of Chambao

For those who haven’t heard the buzz yet, let us fill you in. Chambao by the Sea isn’t just any beach joint; it’s the sibling of Chambao by the Beach at Nobu Hotel Ibiza Bay – you know, the fancy spot where relaxation meets luxury on the shores of Ibiza. With Chambao at Ibiza Bay earning a well-deserved reputation as one of the island’s ‘must-do’ dining destinations, anticipation for its arrival in Marbella has been as palpable as the ocean breeze. And now that it’s officially opened its doors at Puente Romano, the wait is finally over. They’ve brought that same laidback, chic vibe to Marbella, following the success of Chambao at Ibiza Bay. While Nobu exudes formality, Chambao embraces beach-ready attire, blending elegance with informality to capture the essence of summertime relaxation.

Picture yourself lounging by the gentle waves, cocktail in hand, with the Mediterranean breeze whispering sweet nothings in your ear – that’s the Chambao by the Sea experience in a nutshell.

The Coastal Charm of Chambao Marbella in Puente Romano

Chambao by the Sea channels the spirit of traditional straw huts dotting the coastline, known as “chambao.” These resilient yet flexible structures have long provided shelter and respite for fisherman and beach enthusiasts alike. And just like the ethos behind the saying “El junco se dobla pero no se rompe” (The reed bends but does not break), these huts symbolize strength and adaptability in the face of the sea’s whims.

Stepping into Chambao, you’ll immediately feel the connection to these coastal roots as the beach restaurant’s design pays homage to the charm of the chambao with its thatched roofs, wooden furniture, and an ambiance that whispers of lazy afternoons spent by the shore. Here, where the elegance of natural textures meets the serenity of the sea, Chambao Marbella offers a tranquil retreat reminiscent of lazy beach days, whether seated directly on the terrace or indoors.
