With a strong focus on cuisine, local culture, and architectural design 
combined with an air of celebrity, Nobu may have met its match in San 
Sebastian. As the capital of Gipuzkoa, this is a city with the most Michelin 
stars per square meter than anywhere else in the world, the site of 
Balenciaga's first atelier, and a place that Hemingway fondly called home while 
writing 'Fiesta'. A true culinary mecca, the mountainous Basque Country's 
culture is reflected throughout the coastal town, where visitors are invited to 
hop from bar to restaurant while sampling bitesize gastronomy referred to 
locally as pintxo. 

Overlooking La Concha Bay, Nobu Hotel and Restaurant San Sebastian is scheduled 
to open in March 2023, with 20 luxuriously designed guest rooms and suites and 
a 98-seat Nobu restaurant offering panoramic water and city views. The fully 
renovated hotel sits on the site of the famed Palacio Vista Eder, constructed 
in 1912 and designed by renowned Spanish architect, Francisco Urcola.

Partnering with Nobu Hospitality on the new opening is Millenium Hospitality 
Real Estate ( 
) SOCIMI ("MHRE"). With an existing collection of five-star hotels peppered 
throughout Spain and Portugal, MHRE's strategy places an emphasis on the 
careful selection of properties and their location. Based on generating value 
by acquiring and repositioning hotel assets, MHRE is managed by a 
multidisciplinary team of prestigious professionals with extensive experience 
in hotel investment, boasting a large portfolio of assets both under operation 
and in the process of being repositioned.

Javier Illan Plaza, President and CEO of Millenium Hospitality Real Estate 
states, "The partnership with Nobu Hospitality and launch of Nobu Hotel and 
Restaurant San Sebastian further places the region on the map as the ultimate 
gourmet hotspot. I'm thrilled to be working with the brand to make this opening 
one of the country's most exciting for 2023, which will be embraced by 
residents and visitors alike."

Nobu Matsuhisa, Robert De Niro, and Meir Teper state, "San Sebastian is an 
exciting location for the brand as good quality food is intrinsic to the 
destination. We're so pleased to be partnering with Javier Illan Plaza on this 
project and to be opening our fourth hotel and restaurant in Spain, bringing 
the Nobu cuisine to a new audience of residents and travellers." 

Trevor Horwell, Chief Executive Officer Nobu Hospitality comments, "We are 
truly honored to be entering the city of San Sebastian, well known for its 
cultural diversity and a beacon of gastronomic excellence in Spain.  The Nobu 
Hotel and Restaurant San Sebastian are crafted on the tremendous vision of our 
partner, Millenium, to create a very special hospitality experience.  We look 
forward to becoming a part of the local community whom we hold in such high
