The Gran Hotel Bahía del Duque in the south of Tenerife welcomes its guests in a truly paradisiacal lobby: lots of greenery, a chic and cozy bar and a fruity welcome cocktail - arrival here is immediately associated with coziness. Architecturally, the five-star resort is influenced by the Canarian colonial style. Those who leave their spacious accommodations - especially recommended: a suite with a view of the sea and the iconic bell tower - in search of entertainment will quickly find what they are looking for. Nestled in a rolling hillside, you'll stroll past the expansive pool area, nine restaurants and 13 lounges, and down to Playa del Duque. A golf course and tennis courts, as well as the award-winning Bahía Wellness Retreat, are also worth the detour. Tip: Be sure to plan an evening at Kensei and make reservations in advance. The Japanese restaurant under the direction of Víctor Planas may soon receive a Michelin star ...

The iconic pink building of the Ritz-Carlton, Abama catches the eye of visitors to Tenerife from afar: designed by architect Melvin Villaroel, the Ritz-Carlton opened back in 2005 and now sits in the middle of a sprawling resort that resembles a small village. In addition to a spa inspired by Roman baths that offers restorative as well as transformative treatments, guests will also find a variety of recreational activities. Sports enthusiasts can enjoy the hotel's golf course or the huge tennis court. There are fun children's areas and a golden sand beach. Outstanding as well are the gourmet offerings at the two Michelin-starred restaurants M. B., which serves the finest Basque cuisine, and the Japo-Fushion restaurant, Kabuki.

The oriental-style hotel on the north coast of Tenerife, which is known for its volcanic sand beaches and the huge Loro Parque Zoo, captivates, as the name suggests, with its close proximity to nature. The Botánico is embedded in a 25,000-square-meter subtropical garden that offers not only lush greenery but also countless recreational opportunities. The park is home to lakes, restaurants and a multi-award-winning spa: The Oriental Spa Garden, which covers 3,500 square meters. Here, guests are pampered with massages - with volcanic stones or golden oils for instance - go to yoga or indulge in a nourishing cosmetic treatment. Speaking of indulgence, four restaurants, two bars, and a steakhouse cater to guest's taste.

Iberostar Selection Sábila

The Sábila, Spanish for aloe vera, served as a source of inspiration for the Iberostar: Thus, the Adults-only house presents itself as a quiet, relaxing retreat for adults directly on the coast in Costa Adeje. After a day of hiking on the Teide, one finds oneself at the Spa Sensations: A swim in the heated outdoor pool is just as relaxing as aloe vera treatments, a bath in the hydro-massage tub or a sauna visit. Afterwards, you can enjoy an aloe cocktail at the pool bar or retreat to your accommodation for a well-deserved nap. Another unusual feature is the typical Spanish gourmet market, where guests can choose from a variety of stalls offering a range of culinary delicacies.

Perfect for a romantic getaway, the Royal Hideaway Corales Beach in sunny southern Tenerife is ideal for connoisseurs.

The restaurant, which among other things has two stars in the Michelin Guide and three Repsol suns, is impressively treating its guests with the unique author's cuisine of Chef Juan Carlos Padrón.
