“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.”

Hotel Review

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.

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."
