Filled with glorious golden beaches, serene blue waters and luxurious bars and restaurants, relaxation is easy in Estepona and the surrounding areas. This beautiful part of Spain attracts thousands of visitors every year, and for good reason.
A resort town blessed with idyllic weather, sun is guaranteed all summer long. At the heart of the Costa del Sol, you will find over 20km of coastline and 17 different beaches - perfect for sunbathing, making sandcastles as a family, or taking romantic evening walks with a loved one.
If you are looking to stay in luxury, base your holiday at Kempinski Hotel Bahia Estepona. Right by the beach, our tropical gardens are the ideal place to enjoy a refreshing drink. Dive into our outdoor pools, unwind in our world-class spa and then dine at one of our exceptional restaurants as the sun sets over the ocean.
We are just a short drive from the many must-see locations across Andalusia too, including Estepona Old Town, the Alcázar of Seville and glamourous Puerto Banus and Marbella.
If you want a summer filled with colour, music and culture then visit Havana. The beautiful capital city of Cuba is always full of life, and there really is something for everyone here. Explore the history of Old Havana, immerse yourself in Cuban culture or feel the cool Caribbean breeze in your hair as you relax on one of the many beaches lined by iconic palm trees.
Expect nothing but five-star service when you stay with Kempinski. With a rooftop bar, central location and stunning rooms with French windows and high ceilings, Gran Hotel Manzana Kempinski is sure to make your summer getaway even more special.

Dreaming about jetting off to a tropical island far away? Visit the Seychelles, a true paradise on earth. The country is made up of 115 islands, each unique and beautiful in their own right.
Aside from the tranquil beaches that you could easily spend your entire holiday relaxing on, there is so much to do and see in the Seychelles. If you are an explorer who loves wildlife, make sure to visit Curieuse Island. With no hotels or restaurants to be found on the island, tours can be organised so you can experience as much as possible while visiting. Keep an eye out for the rare Seychelles black parrot, and make sure to spend some time with a giant Aldabra tortoise.
Mahé Island is another must-visit. Go snorkelling here, take a hike along one of the trails within Morne Seychellois National Park or visit the tiny capital of Victoria, where you can shop for fresh fish at the outdoor market and see the island's replica of London's Big Ben.
If you are looking for a place to stay, Kempinski Seychelles Resort is perfect. Located in Baie Lazare, finding peace and tranquillity here is easy. Enjoy indulgent spa treatments, hilltop yoga, or watersports activities
Italy flourishes in the summertime, and there is no place quite like Venice for a couple's retreat. Filled with history, romance and beauty, you can spend your days strolling around the city, visiting St. Mark's Basilica, Doge's Palace, Piazza San Marco and many other iconic sights.
Swap walking for a gondola, and see the city from an entirely new perspective. Don't forget to look up as you travel across the water, and admire the intricate architecture that Venice is so well known for.
Stay in luxury at San Clemente Palace Kempinski. Located on a private island, guests will love exploring the city during the day, before boarding one of our complimentary boats back to the hotel. Cast your eyes across the water and see views of the sun setting across Piazza San Marco. As night falls, enjoy a candlelit evening outdoors and dine on the finest Italian cuisine at Acquerello Restaurant, overlooking the Venetian lagoon.
