While Lanzarote, one of the eight main Canary Islands, is only 846sqkm (327sqmi), it manages to pack in the dramatic volcanic landscapes of Timanfaya National Park and laid-back sandy beaches such as Playa de Papagayo and Playa Blanca. It also houses an incredible range of places to stay, from luxury resorts to homely apartment rentals. Discover the best hotels in Lanzarote – all bookable with Culture Trip.
Looking for a quiet escape? Head to this boutique, adults-only Lanzarote hotel, where you can sink into the hot tub on your private terrace and forget about the world. When you’re ready to emerge from your peaceful cocoon, you only need to walk a few steps to the on-site restaurant for fresh local cuisine and wines or the Terrace Bar for cocktails. If you’re feeling more adventurous, both Arrecife and Playa Honda are just a short stroll down the promenade.
On the seafront in Puerto del Carmen, this hotel has access to three beaches and 213 rooms with ocean and garden views. You’re sure to be impressed by the rooftop infinity pool, with views of Fuerteventura and Isla de Lobos. Erizo Macaronesian Restaurant offers an avant-garde take on traditional Macaronesian cuisine – think Iberian pork cheek with celeriac puree and glazed shallots.
Set inside a traditional mansion, this boutique Lanzarote hotel has nine rooms and suites that tastefully blend traditional architecture and modern design – think four-poster beds, chaise lounges and jute rugs beneath wood-beamed ceilings. Large windows flood the rooms with light and offer views of the lush succulents and fuchsia bougainvillaea in the tropical garden. Head to the on-site restaurant for Lanzarote seafood dishes, such as Uga smoked salmon with capers, onion, boiled egg and buttered toast.
The Meliã group is known for its modern Spanish design, showstopping pools and enviable locations – and this Lanzarote hotel is no exception. Sitting between the sandy Playa de los Charcos and Playa de las Cucharas, it wows with a sprawling oceanfront lagoon pool surrounded by palms. Accommodation ranges from guest rooms and suites to private villas. For VIP treatment, book into the adults-only Level area, where you’ll enjoy access to a separate pool and lounge area with complimentary evening drinks to get you in the holiday mood.
Stylishly mixing the traditional with modern luxury, this Lanzarote hotel sits inside a late-18th-century Canarian country house. Wood, traditional rugs and antique furniture channel the rustic charm of its former years in the six rooms and two romantic suites, which have views of the beautiful garden sprouting from the black sandy ground outside. The lounge has a library and complimentary coffee and tea; for something more substantial, the Caserío de Mozaga Restaurant sits in the old stables and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Found on the southern shore of the island and styled as a Spanish pueblo blanco (whitewashed town), this Lanzarote hotel offers a truly relaxing escape. A choice of two-bedroom apartments or three- and four-bedroom villas, complete with kitchenettes, outdoor terraces and large lounge areas, means there’s something for everyone, from couples to families. The heated pool, in-house minigolf and other outdoor games will keep you entertained throughout your stay.
This former farmhouse is in the centre of Lanzarote, surrounded by vineyards. Enjoy the peace and quiet as you taste some of the finest wines on the island, accompanied by lovely views over the surrounding valleys and mountains from the terrace. The hotel features a restaurant, a swimming pool, a sauna, a gym, a tennis court and a minigolf course – perfect if you feel like having a day off from exploring the island.
About 15 minutes from César Manrique-Lanzarote Airport, this hotel complex takes luxury to the next level. The 25 tasteful suites are dotted with spas, solariums, ocean-view terraces, smart TVs, Nespresso machines and minibars with a selection of wines. The entire hotel gleams a clean white, with pops of colour in the outside areas from flowers and mini waterfalls. Dine at the excellent on-site restaurant before venturing out to discover the busy nightlife in Puerto del Carmen.
