When Moët & Chandon created a hotel suite

Located on the top floor of the Gran Meliá Don Pepe, this penthouse is strictly for the champagne crowd.

October 27, 2014

When we heard that champagne brand Moët & Chandon had created its own hotel suite, we envisaged a bathtub filled with Moët, sparkling wine coming out of the kitchen tap and enough bottles on ice to sink a small ship.

While none of those things apparently exist at the world's first Moët & Chandon suite, it does have enough luxurious selling points to make the retreat well worth a visit. 

Located on the top floor of the Gran Meliá Don Pepe in Marbella, the 300 square metre penthouse offers unforgettable views of the azure Mediterranean Sea and even the northern coast of Africa. 

As you'd imagine in a hotel suite designed by the French champagne brand, the residence comes with its very own bar, situated on a secluded terrace, complete with whirlpool, Bali bed and even your very own putting green. The lounge features pristine white handmade furniture, a beautiful black piano and, of course, a champagne bucket stocked with the champagne's finest vintage.  

If you're thinking of booking, you'll be in decent company, as the first guest to stay in this exclusive suite was actress Eva Longoria, who signed one of the brand’s limited-edition books, which now remains in the suite. 

As well as the stunning surroundings, guests in the Moët & Chandon suite also benefit from Gran Meliá’s prestigious Red Level Service, which includes a whole host of perks such as private check in, butler service, your choice of room aroma, Clarins bathroom amenities and a Nespresso coffee machine amongst others. 

If sipping champagne all day isn't really your thing (what?!) guests can also use the Red Level Lounge, which offers a private area with daily breakfast, drink, appetisers, snacks and coffee and a private corner with library, television, newspapers and music. Salud!
