Barcelona star man Lionel Messi has bought a stunning £525-a-night hotel in Ibiza as he expands his MiM brand.
The Argentina international has purchased the incredible Hotel Es Vive situated along the Figueretas beach, with the 52-room property boasting a luxury pool and rooftop bar.
The 30-year-old snapped up the four-star hotel MiM Sitges for a reported fee of £26m last year.
According to iB3 Tv, prices for a room per-night starts from £226 as the plush establishment will be managed by the Majestic Hotel Group.
According to El Espanol, after former management company Gemini Group Evissa confirmed the transfer of business to Messi, the property has since been renamed MiM Ibiza Es Vive following the takeover.
Cristiano Ronaldo recently revealed his business plans for the party island, but his rival first pipped it.
The Real Madrid’s Pestana CR7 chain of hotels had announced they were working with JLL Hotels & Hospitality Group to find a suitable property in Ibiza last year.
Spokesperson for JLL, Luis Arsuaga Rato, said at the time: “The island is a natural destination for the Pestana CR7 brand.”
The 33-year-old is no stranger to the hotel business owning one in his hometown of Funchal with another in Lisbon as he is expected to open hotels in Madrid, New York, and Marrakesh in Morocco.
