Dazzlingly innovative architecture combined with a unique position – set across an entire headland on the southern tip of the island – make this one of Lanzarote’s truly standout five-star hotels. As well as being a superb base for exploring the dramatic landscapes of Lanzarote, the hotel is an excellent destination for world-class relaxation, dining and indulgence.
With design overseen by famous Canarian architect César Manrique, the hotel was inspired by the traditional ‘zocos’ or semi-circular walls of volcanic rock that have historically been built to protect the local vines. A trio of these forms make up the hotel complex, which overlooks the ocean just a short distance from the golden sands of Playa Blanca. Spread between the three buildings, rooms are spacious, bright and contemporary, with high-end comforts such as pillow menus and fluffy robes.
While there’s a spa, multiple pools, a fitness centre and numerous sports activities for the grown-ups, little holidaymakers benefit from pools and an aqua park of their own, plus a supervised kids’ club with a lively activity programme. There are restaurants with live cooking stations, and even a food truck for snacks on the go.
A gorgeous and unusual luxury hotel that’s well placed for beach life and island exploration, this is a great pick for visitors to Lanzarote’s south coast.
