TOWIE fans will have been glued to their screens again as they followed the recent goings on from the likes of Dan Osborne, Lydia, Arg, Ferne and Charlie in Marbella this year. But if you want to visit Marbella in true TOWIE style, without the drama, where should you go? Take a look at some of the places featured in the most recent episodes of 'The Only Way is Marbs':
Head to this great Puerto Banus based nightclub, featured in the recent series of The Only Way is Marbs. Aqwa Mist, is one hell of a night out. Lit in blues and purples with trendy furnishings and a DJ booth right in the centre of the dancefloor, this is the place to be if you want to party like the TOWIE crew once the sun's gone down. With a different theme and musical genre every night, like Marbella Rocks on Thursdays, Garage nights on Tuesdays and House nights on Sundays, you can easily spend a few nights here and feel like you're in a completely different club atmosphere than the night before. Along with the stars of TOWIE you'll often find the odd footballer in here, plus with performances from the likes of Tinie Tempah, Neyo, Tyga and Rudimental, it's a great live music venue too.
If you're looking for a romantic meal out in Marbella, or simply great food in beautiful surroundings, look no further than Villa Tiberio Restaurant, where Chloe Sims and Elliott Wright dined while they were filming TOWIE. Owned by world renowned restaurateur Sandro Morelli, this stunning eatery is hugely popular among the rich and famous, locals and holidaymakers alike, thanks to its amazing food and beautiful setting. Choose from exquisite dishes such as roast sucking pig or salmon fettuccine, washed down with a 1938 vintage Château Margaux while seated in an Italian style piazza under the stars. A dining experience not to be missed.
For a chilled out beach vibe, you can't go wrong with Nikki Beach. This famous luxury beach club is a favourite daytime haunt for the TOWIE cast and you'll be able to see why. Imagine a pristine azure blue pool surrounded by palm trees, huge comfortable white day beds upon which to lie and admire the view while sipping on a glass of Cristal, a beautiful beach and impeccable food and service and you have Nikki Beach. It's one of the most popular and exclusive beach clubs on the Costa del Sol and one that is known the world over. As the sun goes down the tempo ups a little as you enjoy entertainers and music until the early hours.
Of course, if you're going to hit the beach in Marbella this summer you'll need some gorgeous new beachwear (the beachwear range at George is perfect). Make like the TOWIE girls and rock their Essex swimwear look as you strut around town with a kaftan thrown over a bikinis and a pair of killer heels. And if all else fails and you can't afford a holiday to Marbella this year, why not treat yourself to the new CD mixed by TOWIE's Lauren Pope – The Only Way is Marbs: Marbella Anthems.
