Building permit granted for €60 million luxury Byblos hotel refurbishment


MIJAS’S Mayor, Juan Carlos Maldonado, has announced the council has approved a building permit to refurbish luxury hotel, Byblos, with works beginning after the summer.

Maldonado commented, “the deadlines are being met and, if everything continues to go to plan, once the summer season ends, this tourist attraction will have a green light to start refurbishments.”

He added, “Byblos is a year-round quality attraction which draws in crowds in the golfing secotr and most importantly boosts our town’s economy and generates employment.”

The hotel is located on a plot of 50,873 square meters in the Mijas Golf urbanisation, offering sports equipment rental, a private green, hotel and small public green. Works will include adding 300 parking spaces below ground and 230 rooms.

The hotel’s spa takes up an impressive 5,293 square metres, the hotel 35,424, the private green 15,056 and the prvate sports area 1,915 square metres, with costs expected to reach €60 million to buy and refurbish the huge space. The investment will involve employing 200 staff directly, and 500 others indirectly.

Hotel Byblos Mijas is the nearest five star hotel to Malaga airport, located in a private peaceful area. The owners plant to refurbish the entire hotel while maintaining its character and enhancing its features.

The Hotel Byblos Andaluz 5* has been a landmark on the Costa del Sol for decades, and has two sister hotels in France, Byblos St.Tropez and Byblos Courchevel, which together project the best of European glitz and glamour.

Some of the biggest names from politics, art, music and business have stayed in the chain, including Princess Diana, the Rolling Stones, Antonio Banderas, Julio Iglesias and the Saudi Arabian royal family.
