Oscar-winning actor Robert De Niro’s hotel empire is continuing to grow. Nine years after De Niro, celebrity chef Nobu Matsuhisa, and Hollywood producer Meir Teper announced the Nobu Hotel brand, and five years after the first property opened in Las Vegas, the trio is set to open the brand's second hotel in Spain with an adults-only resort in Marbella.
The new hotel will have 81 suites as part of the Puente Romano Beach Resort & Spa. The group’s first Spanish property, the Nobu Hotel Ibiza Bay, opened on June 30, 2017 with 152 guestrooms and suites in the Talamanca Bay.
Nobu also has properties in Miami, Malibu, London Shoreditch and Palo Alto, Calif. Beyond the Nobu Hotel Marbella, the Nobu Hotel Riyadh, Nobu Hotel Los Cabos, Nobu Hotel Chicago are all slated to open this year. In total, the company expects to have 15 hotels open by 2020.
