The Canary island of Lanzarote is known for its volcanic landscape, black sand beaches and windsurfing hotspots, taking advantage of the Atlantic trade winds. Avoid one of the large Spanish resorts and opt for a boutique hotel, complete with mini spas and saltwater swimming pools.

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

H10 Sentido White Suites Boutique Hotel

Boutique Hotel

While certainly 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 Teguise village – considered one of the Canaries oldest – the 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 its 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.
