 Vista Lago Residences

Vista Lago Residences is an award-winning new development of 18 luxury villas overlooking Marbella and the Mediterranean Sea. The plots also overlook a 35,000 m2 lake.

From your lounge and terrace you will be able to see two continents, three countries, a lake, mountains, golf courses, plus your TV – all without moving from your sofa! The distance between the villas allows for complete privacy and the stunning views can be enjoyed from every villa, and virtually every room in each villa.

Located 15 minutes from the coast and Puerto Banús this project is set to be a landmark combining both interior design and architecture in a way that has never been seen before. Developed by Bright, with architecture and interior design by UDesign, these are designer villas in the true sense of the word. Every detail in the architecture and interiors is design-led.

Design thinking finds ideal solutions based on the real needs of real people. These villas are a fusion of simplicity and sophistication and create an environment that not only feels and looks fabulous but also really works. More about Vista Lago Residences

LUXURY AND SUSTAINABILITY IN THE FOOTHILLS OF MARBELLA’S MOUNTAINS

This residential estate boasts spectacular views across the Mediterranean Sea and the Strait of Gibraltar. Vista Lago Residences is just a 35-minute drive from Málaga airport. It is above the famous Golden Mile — between the mountains, sea, and the urban elegance of Nueva Andalucía.

Vista Lago Residences stands out from all other developments in Southern Europe. Each of the 18 villas is complemented with its own unique furniture and fittings.

Apart from its stunning views, this luxury community takes pride in its high standard of construction and sustainable design. The villas display an uncommon level of creativity and innovation rarely seen in residential developments.

EVERYONE FEELS HAPPIER IN THE SUNSHINE

Everything is designed to maximise the views. Each villa’s design and concept is customised to highlight the location’s natural beauty.
The lounge and terrace merge seamlessly into one large living space. The windows disappear into the walls and frame the unobstructed views of the idyllic natural surroundings.

All villas are positioned for maximum privacy on individual plots. Each has large terraces, ample gardens and true Infinity pools. Residents also have access to bespoke spaces that can be used for entertainment rooms, gyms, and home offices.

The combination of custom-designed furniture along with a stunning selection of artwork is what makes a Vista Lago Marbella home something to be truly proud of.

A HAVEN FROM THE OUTSIDE WORLD

Vista Lago Residences offers a lot more than a five-star lifestyle and magnificent views. It also offers the priceless commodities of space in abundance and clean air in beautiful natural surroundings.

The amenities at Real de La Quinta combined with the facilities of each villa, mean that owners never need to leave the resort unless they want to. It’s an oasis, a true haven where comfort and quality of life is assured. Everything you need is within reach.

Minotti 2022 Hospitality Vision – Waterrock Boutique Hotel and Villas Video

Minotti’s hospitality vision is increasingly evolving in terms of its design and stylistic language, giving shape, as every year, to a new and exclusive virtual project. 2022 sees the arrival of “Waterrock Boutique Hotel and Villas”, a concept that interprets the current trends of contemporary living in the residential and high-end hospitality sectors.

The new project is ideally located in a natural Mediterranean setting, lying on a coastal hilly area and offering panoramic sea views; a fascinating location designed to act as a new backdrop and maximise the dialogue between indoor and outdoor spaces and between furnishing pieces and architecture, values at the heart of the 2022 Collection.

The architectural style and materials used are closely linked to the spirit of the new collection, in absolute harmony with the mood proposed last year, in the sophisticated contrast between exposed concrete and satin-finish steel, scratched wood, lacquers and mirrored surfaces.

The spaces on offer combine the elements of the history of architecture ranging from Rationalism to Mid-Century American taste through to Brutalism, to give shape to picturesque atmospheres, the same ones that distinguish the style and identity of the brand in different contexts.

The main building in the complex is the Waterrock Boutique Hotel, home to three different areas dedicated to conviviality: the Ishi Bar, the Mizu spa and the Oleander Grill restaurant, spaces whose names refer to the Orient and its elegant and minimal atmospheres.

The lounge of the boutique hotel is animated by two different seating systems, both designed by Rodolfo Dordoni: Twiggy, which stands out thanks to its rigorous geometric shapes and the sophisticated sartorial flavour of tone-on-tone stitching, and Goodman which, available in various configurations, has compact, comfortable volumes capable of adapting to the space and needs of the individual living there.

The indoor environments of the Ishi Bar, on the other hand, see the alternation of areas dedicated to conviviality with the Twiggy seating system with informal dining areas with the Sendai lounge little armchairs, combined with the Oliver lounge tables, recreating a harmonious, enveloping atmosphere that extends to open spaces, set up with the elegant simplicity of the Yoko Cord Outdoor designed by Inoda+Sveje seats and the Patio Teak modular seating system by GamFratesi.

Suspended between inside and outside, the relaxation area at the Mizu spa is furnished with pieces that reaffirm the flexibility and transversal nature of Minotti furnishings, such as the Horizonte indoor seating system by Marcio Kogan / studio mk27 and the Patio system accompanied by the Belt Cord Outdoor seats, perfect for creating an atmosphere of welcoming intimacy in the poolside area. In the adjacent one, dedicated to relaxation, the Florida seating system not only furnishes but also defines the paths of the open-air space.

Large panoramic windows and perforated concrete partitions allow a glimpse of the landscape and its light, while the alternation of steel and lacquered surfaces in bright colours bring to mind a reinterpretation of contemporary, helping to create dynamic contrasts that become architecture.

In the Oleander Grill, the atmosphere is consistent with the Minotti language, capable of enhancing the projects and the different stylistic and cultural identities of the designers behind the collection. In this environment, the dining areas, both indoor and outdoor, are punctuated by relaxation islands in a continuous back and forth, with no interruptions, between inside and outside, between areas for conversation, work and hospitality.

Inside, the Lars and Sendai sofas alternate with the Linha Fina tables and the Yoko dining little armchairs, while the outside with the Bellagio tables and the Belt Cord Outdoor armchairs is instead characterised by the bright colours of the outdoor fabrics, inspired by nature and perfectly in harmony with the open-air space that hosts them.

The Waterrock Boutique Hotel is flanked by three different types of villas immersed in the landscape – Lotus Tree, Maple Tree and Cherry Tree – buildings differing in size, but united by the ability to accommodate the pieces from the 2022 Collection to best express the mood and eclecticism of the furnishings in different contexts.
