Sunem Playa

One of the reasons I am thrilled to write for the Seaside Gazette is that I get to meet so many amazing people and to visit so many exciting places. This weekend I was introduced to Sunem Playa located on the picturesque Playa del Peñon in Salobreña. The owner, Pépe (who also owns Chiringuito La Bahía next door) gave me the grand tour. In one word “Wow!” It literally took my breath away.
This trés chic place, which is a combined restaurant – lounge – pub, opened its doors on June 22nd.  It is totally classy and elegant yet in a very relaxing and casual way. The location is absolutely exquisite and the Italian designer décor is stunning. To be honest, I haven’t seen a place quite like it in this area. I was there during the day but the ambiance there at night must be indescribable.
The gastronomy leaves nothing to be desired either – with a fine selection of salads, starters, carpaccios, pastas and main entrees to choose from. There are three bars at Sunem Playa, one outside on the big terrace, the main bar inside and a separate bar exclusively for cocktails.
They host a variety of entertainment one night a week and have recently had live comedy, reggae night, and other live music to entertain their guests. The inside bar is spacious with plenty of room to dance if you are in the mood. A masseuse even sets up his massage chair on the weekends if you need a back or neck rub.
