Lush landscapes abound at Anantara, Marbella, and these palatial grounds will surely make you feel like royalty. The ultimate leisure destination offers world-class golf (there are three stunning courses), a Roman amphitheater, direct lake access, tennis, squash, badminton, croquet, ocean exploration and cultural immersion, all in one place. The hotel also has more than 1,200 works of art, and it is no stranger to notable figures; the Obama Villa is named after former first lady, Michelle Obama. The palatial villa spans three stories (there are two bedrooms, one on each floor for ultimate privacy) and has a private rooftop and pool, kitchenette and outdoor lounge. It is distinctly inspired by Spanish architecture, but elevated with elegant decor and neutral tones. Sunlight floods through the windows, and stunning curtains framing French doors and large windows create an ethereal ambience.
