Tenerife luxury hotels for a unique Spanish getaway

Tenerife luxury hotels for a unique Spanish getaway

Luxury islands

With an average of over 300 days of sunshine a year, an abundance of natural beauty – including spectacular stargazing – and a great selection of Tenerife luxury hotels, the Island of Eternal Spring is well worth a visit.

Beautiful beaches that rival most stretches of golden sand around the world, Spain’s highest mountain, and a perhaps surprisingly large array of fine dining options make this striking volcanic island, nestled in the Atlantic Ocean opposite the northwestern coast of Africa, somewhat of a best kept secret.

Let’s start with the food. Six Michelin stars have been awarded to restaurants situated on this sparkling island in the Atlantic Ocean, including the highly revered El Rincón de Juan Carlos in Los Gigantes, and M.B, the two Michelin-starred restaurant at The Ritz-Carlton, Abama.

Incredible local and international cuisine can be found in a wide range of beautiful restaurants, both Michelin starred and otherwise. The food and drink is so good here the airmiles are worth it for the foodie adventure alone.

On a par with the outstanding food is the abundance of natural beauty, and a trip by cable car to the peak of Spain’s highest mountain, El Teide, is one of the most popular attractions. On a clear day you can see incredible views of the volcanic valley and surrounding islands.


Tenerife is famous for its volcanic black sand beaches but, thanks to some additional sand from the Sahara, there are plenty of golden sand beaches too. Playa de las Teristas offers a combination of soft golden sand, palm trees and views of volcanic peaks in the background, Playa La Tejita has turquoise waters and volcanic rock formations along the shore, and Playa Bollullo, often described as ‘the real Tenerife’ is a black sand beach surrounded by banana plantations as the base of a cliff. Playa del Duque has golden sands, turquoise waters, plus chic upmarket shopping and enticing restaurants.

There is so much to see, do, eat and drink here that you’ll need a good base from which to explore, or somewhere carefully crafted into the natural environment so you can gaze out upon your surroundings from your luxurious surroundings. Here are the best luxury Tenerife hotels, and a little about what makes each of them so special.
