Plans are in place to transform a port in Marbella in the hope of attracting the rich and famous from nearby Puerto Banus.

La Bajadilla marina is due a 400 million euro makeover thanks to a consortium led by Qatari Sheikh Abdullah ben Nasser Al-Thani, current owner of Malaga Football Club.

Plans for an additional 500 berths arranged on a spectacular circular pier, 200-metre quay for cruise liners, a waterfront five-star hotel as well as a raft of bars, restaurants and shops will catapult La Bajadilla into the spotlight.

Hadleigh Bolt, director of, said: "This new marina is a great initiative and I believe it's a correct decision to create a fresh new landmark for Marbella rather than to simply remodel near-neighbour Puerto Banus.

"With the old industrial estate set to be demolished and the AVE high speed rail link destined to stretch to Marbella in the not too distant future – Port Al Thani will undoubtedly change the face of Marbella."
