Tenerife is sun-drenched paradise for adventure sports, tropical scenery and year-round sunshine, and nowhere is this more evident than the Ritz-Carlton, Abama.
This sprawling hotel is located on Tenerife’s southwest coast, on Guía de Isora which might just one of the island’s best-kept secrets. The hotel itself peaks out from amidst lush gardens and enjoys views of La Gomera which somehow never get old. Yet, there’s more to Ritz-Carlton Abama than the views, it’s also a home to countless things to do.
Feast on Award-Winning Food
There are no fewer than 11 restaurants at Ritz-Carlton Abama so you are spoilt for choice. Some are perched on the cliff edges with stunning views while others are nestled in intimate nooks, each one is unique so you’re sure to find something to tantalise your tastebuds. For something truly special, head to M.B. where Basque Chef Martin Berasategui has recently earned his second Michelin star.
Bask in the sun by the Pool or on the beach
Ritz-Carlton, Abama has 8 pools, including the Persian Garden pool which is for Club Level guests. There are also two natural pools, a Sanchez-Casal tennis academy, a Dave Thomas designed golf course and a state-of-the-art spa and fitness centre with Jacuzzi, hydrotherapy pool and thermal circuit.
If the beach is more your thing, you can head down to the hotel’s secluded sandy cove a while away the day with a bestseller in one hand and the sparkling ocean stretching out in front on you.
There are plenty of activities for sports enthusiasts, from an excellent tennis club and the Annabel Croft Tennis Academy to a complimentary state-of-the-art gym.
The piece de resistance is Ritz-Carlton, Abama’s iconic 18 hole golf course stretches over 6,271 metres of ever-changing terrain, it features 22 lakes linked by impressive waterfalls and white-sand bunkers, and 25,000 palm trees. The course reaches a high point of 315 metres above sea level, and most holes provide spectacular views of the Atlantic and the island of La Gomera.
