Messi’s properties in Spain

In 2017, Messi took his real-estate game to a whole new level when he started venturing into being a hotelier. He bought his first hotel for $30.5 million. The four-star beach-side property is about 24 miles from his Barcelona mansion. With 77 expansive rooms, a rooftop bar, and a spa, it is nothing short of opulent. And over the years, he continued to acquire more properties around Spain and converted them to lodges.

In September 2022, it was reported that Messi also bought an Ibiza mansion for $11.18 million, however he has run into problems receiving the necessary certificate of occupancy that deems the home in liveable condition. Not much else is known about the property, however it seems likely that the football star and his wife will use it as a holiday house in the off-season.
