Experience of the Month: Sunborn Gibraltar, Super Yacht Hotel

August 1, 2016

 

Welcome to the world's first luxury super yacht hotel.


With a permanent home on the island's celebrated Ocean Village marina, the Sunborn Gibraltar is seven floors of something special. Step aboard and find a unique experience: the privacy and exclusivity of an ocean-going super yacht married to the quality and comfort of a five-star hotel.


The spacious top-deck restaurant with al fresco terrace is a magical venue. Complete with retractable 
roof and floor-to-ceiling folding glass doors, it provides an elegant backdrop for a special gathering – under the sun or beneath the stars.


At the back of the yacht, the relaxed sundeck bar and lounge sets the scene perfectly for a memorable cocktail party or couples' retreat.


There are plenty of interesting venues in Gibraltar itself – subterranean
 St Michael’s Cave, sub-tropical Alameda Botanical Gardens and spectacular top-of-the-Rock Mons Calpe Suite – whatever you have in mind, the staff can help make it happen.  


Staff are discreet, attentive and multi-lingual, and service is second to none and tailored to your needs. Room service is available till 11pm and you can request concierge help with taxi, theatre and restaurant bookings as well as advice on visiting local attractions – or even arranging a round of golf.

 

Guests can enjoy up-to-the-minute information courtesy of a sophisticated in-room TV-based system that provides access to restaurant and spa reservations plus other hotel services.

The Sunborn Gibraltar has 168 rooms and a further 21 suites, executive rooms and apartments.

Sunborn Gibraltar has a total of 189 luxury guest hotel rooms and suites. Designed to provide spacious, light-filled accommodation, each room has marina, Rock or sea views – in most cases framed by wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows which lead out on to a generous private terrace or balcony.

 

Smart storage solutions, pristine bathrooms and elegant, contemporary fabrics and furnishings are used throughout, creating a fabulous five-star finish.

Indulge in one of our romantic couples’ packages too, complete with champagne and chocolates.

The Sundeck


Unwind in an idyllic setting on board Sunborn Gibraltar. Relax on the sundeck, take a dip in the pool and enjoy the far-reaching views – it’s a little slice of heaven on a sunny day. A serene oasis in the middle of the bustling marina, the sundeck and bar is just the place for lounging in the sun with a cold drink and a good book – or to simply sit and watch the world go by. Utter bliss.


Situated on the stern of the yacht, it provides the ideal backdrop for a lazy day under sunny skies. Lie back on one of the luxury poolside loungers or head for the shade of a parasol – and an iced drink – on the terrace. Drinks and snacks are served throughout the day.

 

Relaxed Rooftop Dining


There’s something for everyone in the versatile top-deck Sky Restaurant. The relaxed atmosphere, extensive breakfast, lunch and supper menus plus al fresco dining option makes this a popular choice all day long.
The skilled international chefs make creative use of the best ingredients to provide signature dishes that change with the seasons.


The lunch and dinner menu is classic Mediterranean with a contemporary twist: seasonal salads, soups and fresh fish – plus favourite cuts straight from the grill – and you’ll find an extensive wine list of carefully selected classics. Why not start the day with a sublime breakfast of fruit, freshly baked bread and pastries, cooked specialities, cold cuts, waffles and pancakes?
