Welcome to Villa Acqua


With a feast of showstopping elements, Villa Acqua will have you under its spell from the moment you arrive.

Your eyes are immediately drawn to the fascinating vertical wall garden that greets you above the entrance. Step inside and you’ll be greeted by an interior wall garden in a living space that will blow you away.

With its 6-metre-high ceilings, wall of windows, glass mezzanine and the central circular vacuum lift, you start to get an idea of just how special Villa Acqua is.

Add to that, the 4-metre-deep pool with aquarium window, winter spa and rooftop cocktail terrace, Villa Acqua is a one-of-a-kind in central Marbella.


It’s rare to find a villa so close to central Marbella on a relatively compact plot with such a feeling of space and with so many incredible features, but Villa Acqua is one such home. The interiors have been expertly designed and curated to deliver surprises on every level.

The ground floor open-plan space is visually striking with its 6-metre ceiling, vertical wall garden, floor to ceiling wall of windows, gold partition wall to the designer bulthaup kitchen and the glass mezzanine overhead.

Travel between floors in the striking glass elevator.

The bedrooms are situated on the first and lower floors with a dazzling first-floor principal bedroom: the centrally positioned bed is backed by a solid shimmering Mexican marble headboard and gold dome overhead.

Downstairs, the lower level sitting room features the aquarium wall for underwater viewing, and a climate-controlled bodega, which you are welcome to use to keep your wines at the optimum temperature.

On this level, there is also a small gym section with an elliptical trainer, bike and yoga mats, as well as a winter spa* which can be booked in advance if you are staying at Villa Acqua during the autumn-winter months.


The owners and architects have really packed a punch in their design of the terraces and roof terrace at Villa Acqua. The urban plot (which was once home to a traditional bungalow) has been transformed into a series of terraces that extend around the front and right side of the villa.

The main ground floor decked terrace is for relaxing and dining and extends out from the living area, to create a wonderful laid-back entertaining space for intimate groups.

The bespoke 26m2 / 5m deep pool features a counter current and a Jacuzzi seated section. Towards the rear of the villa and down some steps, you find the fire pit style BBQ area complete with ‘around the campfire’ wood log seating.

As truly wonderful as the ground floor terraces are, we think you might want to spend a good deal of your holiday on the roof terrace.

Spanning the whole of the villa’s floor space, here you can chill out on a sun bed during the day, or relax in the hot tub with a glass of bubbly at sunset. The terrace enjoys views to the Mediterranean Sea, where you can dine under the stars.

The ground floor open plan living and dining area extends out to the terrace to create one seamless indoor-outdoor entertaining space.

The living room is furnished with a long four-seater sofa, two armchairs and a sleek low coffee table. A graceful Indian sculpture sits serenely by the glass wall. Features include a glass floor mezzanine balcony, a designer drop lighting creation, and the vertical wall garden which lends a sense of tranquillity.

The lower level sitting room is an intimate space reminiscent of a snug VIP lounge. Ample seating is gathered around a wall-mounted Smart TV with a feature fireplace below. But it’s the aquarium wall which capture your complete attention.

A walk-in wine cellar is at your disposal for keeping your Spanish wine selection at the optimum temperature.

Villa Acqua gives you three dining rooms to choose from and two kitchens.

On the ground floor, adjacent to the kitchen there is an interior circular dining table to seat 7-8 guests illuminated by a Bauhaus pendant light above. The kitchen features a striking quartz counter island-cum-breakfast bar with stool seating for three.

The Bulthaup kitchen is compact but well equipped and the island lends the space needed for preparing ingredients.

The ground floor covered terrace is furnished with a dining table to seat eight guests and there is a fire pit BBQ on the lower terrace.

On the roof terrace you find a dining table with bar stool seating for 10 guests: perfect for informal dinner and cocktail evenings, and a prep kitchen with sink and fridge.

As well as being sleek and ultra-stylish, Villa Acqua is above all a place to come back and relax in after a day exploring the Costa del Sol or a heady evening in Marbella or Puerto Banús.

Want to relax in company? Choose from the ground floor living room which extends out to the lounge terrace and pool, the cosy lower floor sitting room or while away the day on a roof top sun lounger or in the hot tub with that Mediterranean Sea view.

If it’s a moment of solace you choose, all four bedroom suites are deliciously comfortable with super-king-size beds and outdoor space: a balcony or patio.

Principal Bedroom 1:

Situated on the first floor, the magnificent principal suite features floor-to-ceiling windows on two sides leading out to a private wraparound balcony, super-king size (180cm) bed with a shimmering solid Mexican marble headboard and a gold dome overhead.

Light Housekeeping

Your rental includes a complete clean and linen change every 7 days, plus additional light housekeeping in 2 visits during the week (housekeeping does not include kitchen clear-up). Additional housekeeping hours can be booked and paid for in advance to cover things like after-dinner clearing up or personal laundry.

A Taste of Spain

If you prefer not to cook, please ask our Concierge team for details of our private chefs. Our professional villa chefs can showcase the best local ingredients or cook favourite international dishes for you and your guests.  (At Villa Acqua this is a service we particularly recommend for your convenience due to the limited space in the kitchen.)

For a taste of authentic Spanish cuisine, ask about our gourmet tapas menus, wine tasting, or book a private food tour with our expert guides.

Enjoy a full BBQ in the summer dining room, or have the chef cook a roof top paella while you relax with a G&T watching the sunset.

Villa Provisioning

All of our villas have a convenient stock-cupboard, with a starter supply of the the essential household items you might need for a comfortable stay.

Villa Essentials Service

A pre-arrival shopping service is available to cover essentials for the first 2 days. Goods + time are paid locally on arrival. Pre-ordering is available with payment made before you travel. For high season bookings, this service must be booked seven days in advance.


Local Expertise on Hand

All stays with The Luxury Villa Collection include a personal meet and greet with an English-speaking Villa Manager for peace of mind, and they are then available during your stay to assist you with any villa queries.

In addition, from the moment you book, our Guest Experience Team will help with all your travel arrangements to ensure a smooth stay. Our Spain-based local experts have a well-honed ‘Little Black Book’ of hand-picked experiences at their disposal, ready to help you create lasting memories.

Complimentary Itinerary Planning

Every booking includes around 3 hours of itinerary planning before you travel (more complex itineraries can be organised for a fee to cover extended hours).  As a guide, 3 hours is usually enough to help with your airport transfers and car hire, a chef service for a special meal, and to help you plan and book one day out.

Concierge-Style Support in Spain

Once you arrive at Villa Acqua, your local Experience Manager will be on hand with further ideas and recommendations. They may be able to visit you at the villa if required, or if you think you might need a more personalised service, we can arrange for you to have a Personal Concierge* for the duration of your stay.

Villa Acqua is within easy reach of a whole range of amazing experiences to add to your travel memories and some we can bring to you at the villa.

It’s a perfect location from which to enjoy Marbella, Puerto Banus and the Costa del Sol.

From exciting family adventures to world-class golf and beach clubs to beauty spas, we work closely with the best local suppliers to help make your stay extra special.

For Spanish culture, explore the cities of Andalucía with a personal guide direct from your villa. Enjoy a selection of day tours or bespoke itineraries all with a door-to-door service in comfortable vehicles. There are also many easy self-drive day trips if you’d like to get out and see more of Andalucía.

A perfect choice for a first-time stay in Marbella is the escorted wine and tapas tour of Marbella’s historic centre, where you can get to know the secret corners of this Spanish town.

If you prefer, your villa concierge can organise in-villa wine and gourmet tasting sessions or a Spanish cooking class.

Marbella is renowned for its wonderful selection of restaurants, from Michelin star fine dining to family-run tapas bars. We have listed our favourite restaurants in Marbella to whet your appetite.

Or why not mosey along the Golden Mile where you’ll encounter some of Marbella’s finest eateries: whether you’re seeking an organic brunch, authentic Spanish lunch menu or a Michelin-star evening.

You can walk into Marbella (12 minutes) along the beachfront promenade, or if you’re feeling energetic, head the other way to Puerto Banus. It will take you about 50 minutes depending on how fast you walk, but there is no better way to experience happy, sun-filled life in Marbella

Situated on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, Marbella is a resort known widely for its glitz and glamour, but for those looking to explore the area you’ll find plenty of Spanish charm, culture and character.

The resort is renowned for its sunny climate that puts the ‘Sol’ in Costa del Sol, and here we have mile upon mile of beaches, bustling shops and breathtaking mountain walks with spectacular scenery for your Instagram feed.

Whilst in Marbella, take a stroll around the old town with its pretty whitewashed streets, church squares and chic boutiques. Stop for an impromptu tapa near Plaza de los Naranjos where you’ll find some of Marbella’s best loved tapas bars.

Further afield, you can easily visit charming white villages along the coast, like Benahavis, Ojen or Ronda.

If you want to stay strictly on the coast, why not head along to the small harbour of Cabopino or the vibrant seaside village of La Cala de Mijas? Or our absolute favourite city, Malaga with its happy-go-lucky ambience, impressive Muelle Uno leisure port, Picasso museums, and phenomenal selection of places to dine.
