Volcanoes infused the soils on Lanzarote with nutrients and the waters with minerals, heating the natural springs and sculpting the landscape into ethereal forms. Vineyards carpet craters carved into beds of black ash, and ancient lava flows have dotted the island with pumice stones. In other words, all the elements are in place for a transformative wellness experience at these top spa hotels in Lanzarote – book your stay now with Culture Trip.

1. Secrets Lanzarote Resort & Spa

Aimed firmly at grown-up travellers looking for romance as well as relaxation, Secrets spills onto the beach from an arid, volcanic landscape, like a private oasis. Outwardly, this is the classic resort experience – palm-dotted grounds, multiple restaurants and pools – but, once checked in, the focus is on hydrotherapy, cold tubs, waterfall and mist showers, saunas, massages and aromatherapy at the Romanesque spa. Rooms complement the calming mood with natural fabrics and uncluttered lines.

2. Hotel Costa Calero Talaso & Spa, Puerto Calero

Hillside Hotel Costa Calero surrounds a huge expanse of pools, palm trees and pavilions, but most guests are lured not by the views but by the therapies on offer at this thalasso spa in Lanzarote. Treatments are centred on the sea, with a saltwater circuit, a hamman, Roman baths, massages and saunas. Rooms borrow colours from the landscape, such as rich sea blues and natural tones of sand and wood. There are multiple restaurants and bars, so wellness doesn’t mean giving up on the resort experience.

3. Barceló Teguise Beach

A chic resort on a stretch of volcanic shoreline, Barceló Teguise surrounds a long and languorous pool, but the focus for most is the spa, with its philosophy of salute per aqua – a Roman philosophy of wellness based on hot and cold baths. Inside the rooms, it’s all crisp whites and modern minimalism, and there are plenty of restaurants and bars to fill the moments between therapies. It’s up on a rocky headland – ensuring sea breezes – and a short walk from the sand.

4. H10 Rubicón Palace

The crater of an extinct volcano rises behind this village-like five-star hotel, laid out on a rocky stretch of coast. Pathways wind between the villas, crossing lush lawns dotted with palms and pools, and rooms have an art deco sensibility, with lots of black-and-white details and balconies for soaking up the Canary Islands sunshine. It’s great for families, with plenty of activities to keep small travellers content while parents are enjoying massages, mist rooms, saunas, jacuzzis and fresh- and saltwater pools.

5. Elba Lanzarote Royal Village Resort

The volcanic hinterland rises dramatically behind the resort strip at Playa Blanca. The bone-dry landscape is visible from many of the rooms at this village-style resort, which edges a hub of interconnected pools. It’s a strong all-rounder, with bright, inviting blue-and-white suite rooms, superior food, activities for kids (including a mini kids’ village) and spa treatments for grown-ups, including salt- and fresh-water therapies.

6. Sandos Papagayo

Sandwiched between a volcanic beach and the volcanoes that produced it, this stylish, sprawling resort is on the edge of the Costa de Papagayo, near some of the loveliest undeveloped stretches of beach on the island. Rooms are oriented towards the ocean, with sea-facing balconies, soft upholstery in soothing colours, good family facilities (including five pools) and an impressive range of spa services, including massages, hydrotherapy, facials, mud wraps and more.

7. Hotel Beatriz Playa & Spa

Facing a broad, powdery beach just minutes from Lanzarote Airport, Hotel Beatriz is a hotel for people who want to get straight out onto the sand. All eyes are on the sea, with water-facing balconies and a string of pools just behind the beach. Rooms are modern and uncluttered – it’s worth splurging on the superior classes for extra space and design panache. Relaxation comes in the form of a two-hour hydrothermal circuit, plus a full menu of massages and treatments.

8. The Volcán Lanzarote

With views over the boutiques, bars, restaurants and yachts at Marina Rubicón Village, Volcán Lanzarote places guests in the heart of the action at Playa Blanca. Styled like an Andalusian pueblo blanco (white village), this sophisticated resort targets couples who crave pampering, with bright, airy, Spanish-flavoured rooms and an impressive selection of spa services, from massages to Turkish baths, saunas and a hydromassage pool. For maximum exclusivity, book into Club Volcán, an adults-only section of the resort that feels like a separate village.

9. Seaside Los Jameos

Inspired by the work of Canarian architect, César Manrique, Seaside Los Jameos has a striking blue-and-white colour scheme that runs from the lobby and public spaces to the window shutters and furniture and fabrics in the rooms. The hotel takes wellness seriously, with excellent sports facilities that include packages for visiting Ironman participants, as well as aquatherapy, saunas, wraps and facials in the spirit-calming, ocean-blue spa. With a great Playa Matagorda location, it’s an enticing package.
