Spain is preparing to welcome a new mega-luxury hotel operated by an international brand. With the imminent arrival of Four Seasons and W in Madrid, both have projects underway in Plaza de Canalejas, a new five-star resort from the US group Hilton is now in progress.

The hotel chain, which owns almost twenty brands, has signed an agreement with the Platinum Estates group, controlled by the Mohinani family, to open its first luxury hotel resort in Spain. Specifically, Hilton is going to open its first Conrad Hotel in the country, one of its most prestigious brands, according to Brainsre.news.

For the Spanish debut of its most premium brand, Hilton has partnered with the Platinum Estates group, led by Harry and Roshni Mohinani, investors of Indian origin who have lived in Hong Kong for a long time and who have been active in the Spanish real estate market for many years.

The first Conrad Hotel in Spain is going to be located on the Costa del Sol, specifically on land where the failed Park Hyatt project was going to be built, a site that Platinum Estates bought last year.

The plot spans a surface area of 50,000 square metres and has a constructed area of 40,000 m2. From the moment it acquired the site, Platinum’s objective has been to build a new luxury hotel on the Costa del Sol and it will now be operated by Hilton.

The hotel will have 194 rooms and “impressive” facilities and is scheduled to open in early 2022.
