Nobu to open property in San Sebastián

Nobu Hospitality has announced plans to open its fourth hotel and restaurant in Spain, Nobu Hotel and Restaurant San Sebastián.

The property is scheduled to launch in March 2023 with 20 guest rooms and suites and a 98-seat Nobu restaurant offering panoramic water and city views.

The fully renovated hotel sits on the site of the famed Palacio Vista Eder property, which was constructed in 1912 and designed by renowned Spanish architect, Francisco Urcola. The hotel overlooks the popular La Concha Bay.

Nobu Hospitality chief executive Trevor Horwell said: “We are truly honoured to be entering the city of San Sebastián, well known for its cultural diversity and a beacon of gastronomic excellence in Spain.

“The Nobu Hotel and Restaurant San Sebastián are crafted on the tremendous vision of our partner, Millenium, to create a very special hospitality experience.  We look forward to becoming a part of the local community whom we hold in such high regard.”

Co-founders Nobu Matsuhisa, Robert De Niro and Meir Teper added: “San Sebastián is an exciting location for the brand as good quality food is intrinsic to the destination. We’re so pleased to be partnering with Javier Illán Plaza on this project and to be opening our fourth hotel and restaurant in Spain, bringing the Nobu cuisine to a new audience of residents and travellers.”

The president and chief executive of developers Millenium Hospitality Real Estate, which has a collection five-star hotels throughout Spain and Portugal, said: “The partnership with Nobu Hospitality and launch of Nobu Hotel and Restaurant San Sebastián further places the region on the map as the ultimate gourmet hotspot.

“I’m thrilled to be working with the brand to make this opening one of the country’s most exciting for 2023, which will be embraced by residents and visitors alike.”

Nobu Hospitality currently operates 12 hotels, with at least a further 13 in the pipeline. The brand most recently announced plans to open its first hotel in Italy, Nobu Hotel and Restaurant Roma, which is expected to launch next summer.
