Lanzarote, one of the Canary Islands, is known for its volcanic landscape, black-sand beaches and windsurfing hotspots. And if you want to avoid the large Spanish resorts and opt for a boutique hotel instead, we’ve gathered the best on the island – all bookable on Culture Trip.

With plenty of sweeping golden beaches and a perennially sunny climate, Lanzarote attracts its fair share of holidaymakers. But scratch the surface and there’s a lot more to it, including the far-reaching influence of local artist César Manrique who stamped his unique vision across the island. While many associate Lanzarote with resort-style hotels, an increasing number of boutique properties cater to independently minded travellers, too.

While certainly at the larger end of the boutique hotel, this bijou holiday complex has all the intimate atmosphere and personality you’d expect from one. It’s an adults-only establishment, located in the Playa Blanca resort, a short stroll from Dorada Beach. Hispanic-meets-Arabian design adds a touch of the exotic, while a pair of pools, a full-service spa and several dining options give little reason to leave the grounds. Book your slot at the exclusive Palapa for an extra-romantic dining experience.

Set in the heart of the village of Teguise – considered one of the oldest in the Canaries – Hotel Boutique Palacio Ico also has deep historical roots. Built around 1690, the palacio was carefully restored staying true to its original Canarian character. Most of the nine guest rooms are huge yet homely, with centuries-old wooden floors and island-style furnishings. An emphasis on art and music is reflected in an extensive library of art books and impressive vinyl collection which, of course, you are free to use.


Aqua Suites

Just on the edge of the popular resort of Puerto del Carmen, Aqua Suites comprises a triangle of whitewashed, clean-lined buildings centred around a sunny swimming pool. Breezy modern décor with aquamarine accents give the hotel a cheerful holiday atmosphere, popular with families. There’s a poolside bar for tipples and nibbles during the day, while dinner is a daily-changing set menu. Alternatively, the buzzy beachfront lined with eateries is a pleasant 10-minute stroll away.

With an arched entrance, tall shuttered windows and whitewashed walls, Seaside Los Jameos Playa sets a distinctly Canarian tone before you’ve even set foot inside. Once you have, the theme takes off with fabulously intricate wooden craftsmanship, Manrique-inspired touches and a small forest of native flora. As well as containing two freeform pools, the subtropical gardens make a lovely spot for al fresco dining. You’re also just steps from Puerto Del Carmen’s popular Playa de los Pocillos and its many bars and restaurants.


Hotel Las Costas

With its beachfront location, directly overlooking the sand of Playa de los Pocillos, Hotel Las Costas scores high for setting. A perfectly positioned pool terrace takes full advantage too, as do most of the guest rooms. With a kids’ club, splash pool and playground, there’s loads to keep the little ones happy, plus evening entertainment for all ages. Sporty types can enjoy on-site activities such as squash, and soak over-stretched limbs in the big outdoor jacuzzi afterwards.

With box-fresh décor, broad sea panoramas and five-star facilities, La Cala Suites is hands-down one of the swishest holiday complexes you’ll find on the south coast of Lanzarote. This chic adults-only hotel offers a choice of rooms, suites and two-bedroom villas, all with Atlantic views as far as neighbouring Fuerteventura. Take your place on a salmon-pink poolside sunbed or cool off on a semi-submerged lounger.

With direct access to the long stretch of dark volcanic sand of Matagorda Beach, it’s no mystery where this five-star hotel got its name. Its immaculate white-and-blue colour scheme creates a sunny yet soothing vibe throughout, especially around its two-tiered freeform swimming pool. From Nespresso machines to pillow menus, rooms certainly don’t scrimp on the amenities – deluxe rooms also add sea-view bubble tubs. For the best vistas, head to the rooftop lounge bar for sundowners and widescreen panoramas of the Atlantic Ocean.

    Occupying a whitewashed farmhouse fringed with colourful bougainvillaea, Casa de Hilario takes its name from the island’s legendary character, Hilario Lanzaroteño who came to live in the area after the Philippines War with the sole company of a camel. There are just seven rooms, each beautifully decorated with hand-made furniture and high-end perks such as jetted tubs and fluffy bathrobes. Another highlight is the lovely views over the small town of Yaiza and the sea beyond from the pool terrace, plus easy access to the neighbouring Timanfaya National Park with its dramatic volcanic landscape.

    Opened in 2003, this former private villa is located in the quiet, largely residential Playa del Cable neighbourhood, just outside the capital, Arrecife. It’s low-rise and high-end, with a laid-back, intimate atmosphere of a homestay and the added bonus – to those seeking total relaxation – of being child-free. The 14 rooms all provide welcome chilled cava, while the suites feature terraces with a jacuzzi – just the spot for popping the fizz.

    Owned by the same family for 200 years, Caserío de Mozaga is a traditional 18th-century Canarian country house, with a simple yet stylish rustic charm. The eight peaceful rooms are decorated with family heirloom antiques and crisp white linens, while bathrooms are small, bright and contemporary. Sadly, there is no pool but the courtyard and gardens make a lovely spot to kick back with a book; nab a spot in the seating area overlooking impressive cacti and bright-pink bougainvillea. The former stables have been converted into a popular restaurant, serving good-quality local dishes with some excellent wines.
