With warm temperatures year-round, Lanzarote is a magnet for sun seekers. Enjoy the very best the island has to offer at these top luxury hotels.
Lanzarote is popular for its warm weather and sandy beaches, but this island in the Atlantic Ocean is also a place of luxury. Lanzarote has an abundance of indulgent hotels and resorts, along with fine-dining, opulent marinas, yachts and of course beautiful scenery. Here’s our round-up of Culture Trip approved luxury hotels on the island.
In the south of Lanzarote, this five-star resort has panoramic sea views, and with the bars, restaurants and yachts of Marina Rubicón on its doorstep, the Volcán attracts a well-heeled crowd. The big draw here is the unique architecture: with replicas of the island’s iconic sights, the property is styled to resemble a traditional village. But don’t let the village vibe deceive you: it’s luxury all the way with stunning pools, fine dining, a well-equipped gym and a spa. The Volcán can even take it a step further if you’re feeling VIP: join Club Volcán for access to exclusive areas and benefits to take your stay to the next level.
Leave the kids at home and check in to this casual adults-only resort, with modern villas and traditional top-tier service. Located in Playa del Cable, a stroll down the promenade takes you to the capital of Arrecife and Playa Honda. Come hungry, as you’ll find restaurants offering tasty local dishes to wash down with the island’s fine wines. Back at base, Villa Vik is a property with a luxurious but unpretentious feel. Yes, of course there are all the five star amenities you’d expect, but the interiors, dotted with pretty objects, patterns and textures, are more welcoming than intimidatingly grand.
Bring the whole family and create the holiday of your dreams at this five-star property, located in Playa Blanca. There’s the things you’d expect: a spa, a well-stocked gym, pools and lush gardens. And then there’s the things you might not: water slides styled around a giant dragon, a 5D cinema and an activity programme exclusively for teens. Big kids, fear not if you’re hankering for some time alone: the balinese beds and exclusive adults-only pool area await. Cuisine is fresh with local produce so be sure to dine in one of the restaurants: las Coloradas, Portofino, Sansofe and la Cascada.
