72% surge in Marbella holiday searches after TOWIE returns to the town

Marbella has become THE place to go for your summer holidays, and we are in no doubt that TOWIE has had a helping hand in its growing popularity.

The cast of TOWIE have once again decamped to ‘Marbs’ for their annual summer getaway – and it seems TV fans are ‘well jel’.

After the The Only Way is Marbella hit our screens this weekend, fans went online in droves to search for their own Spanish getaway.

Holiday booking website hotels.com saw a huge 72 per cent increase in searches for Marbella holidays the day after the first in the two-part TOWIE special aired.

The Only Way is Marbella broadcast on Sunday and saw viewers entertained with affair accusations and new hook-ups, while showcasing some of Marbella’s most popular restaurants and clubs.

With the second episode due to air this evening, fans of the show will no doubt be in for even more drama with the glorious Marbella sun as the back drop.

Alison Couper of the Hotels.com brand said: ‘It’s impressive to see how influential our favourite TV shows can be on our travel habits. Our site offers great deals for Marbella for those who are interested in whisking themselves away to have a “reem” holiday this summer!’

The increase in holiday searches also comes after Lauren Pope revealed her favourite Marbella hotspots to MailOnline Travel.

The TOWIE beauty is a huge dance music fan and is currently promoting the show’s first ever CD; The Only Way  is Marbs: Marbella Anthems.

Stars from the show including Lydia Bright and James ‘Diags’ Bennewit  attended the The CD’s launch party at The Brickyard in Essex on Friday.

Lauren said: ‘I’ve loved working on this album – from the track selection to the mixing, it’s been an amazing experience.

‘It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a while and I’m delighted to get the opportunity to do it now.

‘I love dance music and I wanted that to be reflected in my selections.’

LAUREN POPE’S TOP FIVE MARBELLA NIGHTSPOTS

Aqua Mist. It has such cool little back room hidden away with a Jacuzzi in it, not that I’ve ever been in it, I dread to think whats gone on in there! But it’s great just to go and have a look. They also get some good name DJs playing there which is right up my street.

La Sala. It’s a lovely restaurant with a great atmosphere, they have live singers in there. It’s a bar as well, so you can go and eat yummy food then relax on the terrace with a few drinks.

Tibu. I’ve DJ’d here a few times and it’s a great venue playing a mixture of house, R ‘n’ B and hip hop. Its pretty big and open late so if it’s a big night you’re after i’d suggest going here.

Nikki Beach. This is such a lovely and chic place to hang out, its a little bit away from the port which isn’t a bad thing. It has a chilled out day vibe and then when it gets dark the party starts with dancers and entertainers and its really cool to dance the night away under the stars.

Pangea. It’s an outside rooftop bar/club and its a great place to start your night. The music is a mix of everything and isn’t too loud so its a great sociable place to catch up with your friends before gong to somewhere like Tibu.
