As many know, Marbella is one of the most attractive locations of the Spanish territory, due to an infrastructure and service that make it a dream destination for many people, choosing Marbella for its shops, restaurants and nightclubs. The enviable coastline of this popular Costa del Sol municipality not only encourages water sports but also the future arrival of cruise ships.
Thus, Marbella will soon boost a spectacular cruise harbour which will be envied by the whole Mediterranean and which is carried out by a consortium between the municipality and the Sheikh of Qatar, Abdullah Ben Nasser Al-Tahani, who is showing a great affection for Malaga and the Costa del Sol.
The port, called Al-Thani, is an investment project of the Sheikh and has a large circular dock with capacity for more than a thousand berths and accommodate large cruise ships. It also will have a shopping mall, luxury hotel, sea promenade and underground parking for 450 cars.
Construction works are expected to be completed in 2015. This dream of Marbella will come true by investments of Sheikh Al-Thani, amounting to 400 million Euros.
Port Al-Thani is a project of enormous magnitude, resembling the constructions of Dubai, and which will open Marbella to tourism from the UAE and around the world. This luxury project will compete with Puerto Banus, a place that entices and enchants for its exclusivity.
