Opened in 1986, the Mijas’ Byblos hotel remarkably became one of the most prestigious and sought-after destinations in Costa del Sol back in the 80s and 90s.

A favourite for international jetsetters and royalty that sought privacy and a secluded retreat, the Byblos hotel was a paragon of luxury, elegance, and hospitality in Spain.

Warm colours and a gentle saffron fragrance drifting in through the windows fill each corner of our rooms with Andalusian character and a modern twist. Inspired by Andalusian traditions, the walls are decorated with local artwork and crafts, which give each room its own character. All the rooms are provided with private terraces that enable you to overlook the mesmerising gardens or golf courses.
