Tenerife is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world. As a result, the island boasts a huge number of excellent hotels. Whereas most of us are limited to the humble end of the hotel choices, there are a lucky few who are able to choose from the island’s most high-end sites. For those people, and for the rest of us who like to daydream, here’s our list of the 5 most luxurious Tenerife hotels.
This is an adults-only hotel built in the Colonial style. An 18-hole golf course is the centrepiece of this sprawling and outrageously beautiful site. The most expensive rooms include big, private terraces, drinks on-tap and all guests can enjoy either of two infinity pools. This is a calming, relaxing and opulent paradise, a world away from the busy tourist side of Tenerife.
If you’re holidaying with the family, Hard Rock Hotel is absolutely perfect. The facilities for kids and teens are unrivalled across Tenerife, but by no means does that mean this place is hectic or messy. State-of-the-art design and hip interiors, excellent food and a classic rock soundtrack make Hard Rock a unique hotel on the island. For any musicians out there, all guests have free access to Fender guitars and amps, so if the luxury gym, pools or spa aren’t your taste, head over to The Rock Shop.
This is probably the hippest hotel on the island. High-class interiors give a classic Hollywood vibe to this palatial place, and the subtle hints of Far East culture add a touch of 70s James Bond. If you’re lucky enough to be staying in the top suites, you are treated like a rock star. Your every want is the staff’s command, from 24hr room service to perfectly preparing your whirlpool bath.
Although not technically 5-star, this is as good as a 4-star hotel can get. And because it’s a little more affordable, it’s within reach of the rest of us. Unique among luxury hotels, this place offers an all-inclusive service which means, if you’re looking for the ultimate carefree unwind, it doesn’t get any better. Super-friendly, efficient yet relaxed staff make staying in this hotel a complete pleasure. There are two wonderful pools, a full spa, squash courts, mini-golf and great shopping nearby.
Widely considered the most luxurious of Tenerife’s luxury hotels; above and beyond the rest. The stunning Moroccan design and architecture create a truly exotic atmosphere. The Ritz has, by far, the best spa on the island, two Michelin-starred restaurants and its own 18-hole championship golf-course. Designed to resemble a North African citadel with sandstone turrets, the remarkable grounds are even home to various hidden gardens. Despite all this opulence, the Ritz remains relaxed, easy going and completely unstuffy.
