“Grand-daddy of five-star resorts. Garden of Eden-like with its botanical garden courtyard and white sand beaches. Beautiful suites have private balconies and sea views. Eat well at the restaurant, catch sunset with a drink and enjoy the many water and land sports on offer. Families and romantics.”

Hotel Overview

“The first ever five-star on Lanzarote is a hotel of two halves. If you want an effortless seaside stay and you’re keen on brutalist architecture and slightly shabby 70s chic, the Barbican lookalike Gran Meliá Salinas is just the ticket. The communal areas and botanical garden courtyard – designed, like the pool, by the island’s most famous son, Cesar Manrique – are a triumph. Ask for one of the refurbished rooms unless you are a hard-core fan of florals, iron-work and dark green marble. The hotel’s layout means that half its lushly vegetated grounds are only accessible – by swipe card – to VIPs. Upgrade to a ‘Royal Service’ suite or one of the nine private Garden Villas (sunken bath, butler service, four poster bed, pillow menu, outdoor volcanic shower) and you don’t even have to cross the hoi polloi in the foyer. The Bali-esque adults-only pool area has a bottomless supply of complimentary chocolate doughnuts, melon, pastries and wine. Seriously impressive stuff. ”

See What They Say

“An Eden rests delicately along the shores of Lanzarote, its structure emanating the vibrant heritage and boundless wonder of The Canary Islands. A celestial Canary Island resort paradise, layered with flora and Lanzarotenian aesthetics, draped with meandering pools and glowing, white sand.

Gran Meliá Salinas has become a symbol of such preeminence, a "Botanical Cathedral" amids the island's dramatic lunar landscape. Colorful murals, paintings, and lush, landscaped gardens garnish the premises, imparting the spirit of this enchanting island, and the vibrancy of prolific, local artists. Imbued with the ingenuity and love of the Lanzarotenian architect/artist Cesar Manrique, Gran Meliá Salinas is a celebrated hallmark of this special region.

Elevate your stay with enhanced personal accommodations, courtesy of Gran Melia Salinas's premium Royal Service. This heightened tier of luxury grants visiting VIPs a myriad of preferential treatments and facilities, including a pillow and linen menu, exclusive check-in, and a tranquil, private pool (adults only). Under the auspices of Gran Melia Salinas's compassionate, dedicated personnel, guests will enjoy the distinguished touch of Royal Service.”

Other Reviews

Meliá Salinas

"Located in the quiet resort of Costa Teguise is this lush, verdant oasis. César Manrique designed the gardens and pool at Meliá Salinas, while the colonial-style interiors are sleek and stylish."
