Hill International to manage luxury resort ugrade project in Malaga, Spain

Hill International have announced they will manage the complete remodeling of the Princess Estepona and Costa del Sol Resort for Ikos Resorts. Located on the Mediterranean coast just south of Malaga in Spain, the project will raise the Resort from a four-star destination to a five-star guest experience. For Ikos, the project represents a further commitment to providing boutique, luxury facilities for its guests, as well as the company’s first project outside of Greece. The total project value is 150 MM (185 MM USD).

Originally built in 1964, the 43,000 SM resort comprises seven buildings and support facilities, occupying 70,000 SM of beachfront property. The project will reduce the number of rooms from 529 to 400, increasing the size of each room to allow for more amenities and higher-end finishes and furnishings for guests as well as integrating Ikos’ brand standards.

Hill is providing management support for all aspects of the refurbishment, including strategic planning, design development services, purchase management, and the installation of furniture, fixtures, and equipment (FF&E). The team will also assist Ikos with the reopening of the new hotel, helping to ensure a seamless transition process and manage any issues that may arise.

“This project encapsulates the strength of both Ikos specifically and the Mediterranean luxury resort market in general,” says Marián Prieto, General Manager in Hill’s Spain office. “Hill has long specialized in helping our destination clients realize and control their brands on signature projects such as the Princess Estepona, and we will bring to our work the global best practices and lessons learned to support Ikos in their entry into Spain.”

Hill International, with more than 3,000 professionals in more than 50 offices worldwide, provides program management, project management, construction management, and other consulting services to clients in a variety of market sectors. Engineering News-Record magazine recently ranked Hill as the eighth-largest construction management firm in the United States.
