For decades, the Canary Islands has been the fail-safe option for short-haul sun. As autumn sets in at home, thoughts turn to warmer climates and squeezing in that last bit of beach life before the festive season takes hold. Perhaps unfairly, the Canary Islands has been mired with a less than favourable image but there are many small pockets of prestige that completely defy the typical image of the Canary Islands. Elegant Resorts has uncovered the best luxury hotels in the Canary Islands, exclusively for you, and now is the ideal time to be planning a luxury beach holiday. So, take your pick from our finest selection to uncover true sophistication in a most unexpected setting.
The Ritz-Carlton Abama
Michelin-starred dining, a highly-rated golf course and sublime clifftop setting are the hallmarks of The Ritz-Carlton Abama. For families, the exclusive Ritz-Kids programme is a comprehensive centre of fun for young guests, allowing them to enjoy the same first-class service as their parents. The hotel’s beach is located on a private cove, accessed by a funicular and boasting sweeping island views. For the ultimate relaxation, be sure to check out the hotel’s exquisite spa.
Bahia Del Duque
On the island of Tenerife, the eye-catching architecture of Bahia Del Duque is legendary, as it represents a traditional Canarian village. This utterly unique, family-friendly resort boasts stylish accommodation, gourmet cuisine designed by a two-starred Michelin chef and five-star spa facilities. Undoubtedly, the main attraction is the golden sand and turquoise-coloured waters of El Duque Beach, to which the hotel enjoys direct access. El Duque Beach is one of the most picturesque in Tenerife, and perhaps all the Canaries.
