Suite del Mar Opening Party 2012. As always in Marbella, the Summer has never really started until the good girls and boys at Puente Romano open the Suite del Mar.
This of course they did with their usual flair, headed up by the incomparable John Thompson, Zoe Marmentini, Tara Lorimer and who could forget Rafa.
For once thank God we were spared the violins and rope climbers which seem to have to suffer at most other openings as originality is always the name of the game when it comes to Suite del Mar
Naked dancers, tastefully painted I may add (you had to look closely to realize they had not a stitch on), dancers with Chinese parasols, lots of flames being thrown about with gay abandon, some absolutely wicked electric stunt kites and of course an explosion of fireworks erupting from the sea bed.
Having covered all the major parties and launches in Marbella for the last 12 years you could say I have seen it all, which I guess I have so it takes a lot to keep me entertained (the Heineken helps) but the Suite del Mar Summer Launch never fails me nor do I expect it to in the years to come.
Hurrah Hurrah for the Suite del Mar, possibly the best beach club in the World.
