Diamond Resorts International -- Vacations for Life -- Experience Malaga in the Sun

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - April 08, 2016) - Home to some of the world's most magnificent historical architecture and the birthplace of great artistic icons such as Picasso and writer Vicente Aleixandre, Málaga is the cultural gem of the Mediterranean. The city boasts sun-kissed beaches, unforgettable views, and a charming European culture. A blossoming port city that artfully blends the richness of the region's dynamic history with modern luxury and elegance, it's no wonder Málaga has become one of Spain's most treasured destinations. Diamond Resorts International® welcomes travelers to experience the inspiration of this idyllic city first hand when staying at their beautiful Sahara Sunset Resort in Benalmadena.

Few areas of the world can claim the rich historical tradition of this port city, and fewer still act as living ruins to the rise and fall of empires. The Phoenicians settled in Málaga over three thousand years ago when it first rose as a cosmopolitan capital. Since then, it has been ruled by the ancient Greeks, Romans, Moors, and finally the city fell under Christian rule with Isabella and Ferdinand of Spain. Visitors to the city can still experience much of the history of Málaga. Travelers can explore the ancient Roman Theater, built during the reign of the Emperor Augustus, visit the breathtaking 9th-century Alcazaba fortress, or view the 11th-century Gibralfaro castle.

With the striking nearby beaches of Spain's famed Costa del Sol and the enchantments of the city itself, there are endless activities in this cultural heart of Spain. Stroll along Málaga's narrow streets, surrounded by Gothic architecture and gorgeous mountains. Explore the city's charming shops -- including a blend of traditional and modern stores. Choose from one of the many Tapas bars, cafés, and restaurants to experience the best of Mediterranean cuisine. The Diamond Resorts International® location, Sahara Sunset Resort offers access to all of this if you travel into Malaga city, and then the peace of mind of relaxing within the spacious accommodations.

With everything the modern traveler could ask for, including a full kitchen stocked with a juicer and refrigerator and balconies to soak up the majestic views, Sahara Sunset Resort by Diamond Resorts International® is a vacationer's dream. Guests can enjoy the sparkling pool, taste the delicacies of the Casbah Café, and relax among elegantly designed rooms between ventures to the delights of the city. Málaga offers so much that it is a place you will want to return to every year.
