Ranked Top 10 Boutique Hotel for sale near Malaga

Built to a riad-style (Moroccan palace with interior garden/patio) honoring its 18th century Moorish palace origins (the hotel is actually registered as a monumental building) this wonderful boutique hotel offers a great lifestyle business opportunity with a dream construction, located in the city’s historical center, 9 rooms for guests, private owners accommodation, fully licensed with great trade and room for improvement.

The hotel has 8 double rooms, 1 family room (2 + 2) and owner’s accommodation spread over 3 floors set around the courtyard, all the rooms have plenty of space and offer sumptuous bathrooms and highly luxurious decoration. The hotel also has a fantastic rooftop swim spa-pool, sunbathing area and bar with views of all the town, its castle & mountains. The hotel has a constructed area of approximately 740m2 with a ground area of 350m2.

While originally built on the 18th century, in 2012 the hotel underwent a complete transformation (refurbishment, renovation, paint & décor) to current day standing which mainly attracts guests interested in exploring Andalusia, going to both the beach and mountains as well as playing golf and enjoying the Mediterranean cuisine. Lately the hotel has become really popular for special events such as business meetings as well as weddings since it’s centrally located in the historic quarter of town (the luxurious option of the 3 available) making it the go to hotel.

As a business its managed in a relaxed manner since while holding full licenses for a restaurant and shop the hotel only offers a continental breakfast, opens for 9 months with a long-time manager taking care of the business for the owners while they spend time back home with family and loved ones.

An important point to make is that the hotel operates as an SL (Limited Liability Company) so the shares are for sale since the company owns everything (the land/plot, building, inventory, website, car and art among other things) which results in reduced tax implications (no property taxes which range typically between 7-9%) although the sale can be asset based, whatever is best for the buyer.

The owner’s accommodations are on the ground floor and has a kitchen, living room with access to a private patio/garden, 2 full bathrooms, master bedroom and a smaller space used as an office, all very secluded and private.

Local attractions include The Caves at Nerja and at Rincon de la Victoria, Picasso Museum, Water Park, Velez-Malaga Gibalfaro castle, Alcazaba Palace, Baños Arabes - arabic baths, Flamenco Dancing, Teatro del Carmen - regional theatre in Velez-Malaga, Guided Cultural Tours of Malaga and Velez-Malaga, Tivoli World amusement park, Dolphin watching, Go-Karting, and Golf with 8 courses nearby.

Further confidential information such as financials, plans, KPIs, etc. will be discussed after an NDA (non-disclosure agreement) has been signed to protect the owner’s confidentiality.
