Kick back in Canarian luxury

Offering year-round sunshine, sandy beaches and dramatic scenery, the Canary Islands have cemented themselves as a firm favourite among British holidaymakers. But this archipelago isn’t just about budget-friendly breaks and winter sun getaways. If you enjoy the finer things in life, why not jet off on a luxury holiday in the Canary Islands? Boasting some beautiful five-star hotels, this place has everything you need for a world-class getaway.

Admittedly, luxury holidays might not be the first thing to spring to mind when you think of the Canaries. But, as the islands have remained steadily popular, the hotels and resorts here have stepped up their game. In Tenerife, you can stay in a private luxury villa, complete with sun-soaked terrace and your very own pool. Or you could opt for a stylish suite in a five-star hotel in Lanzarote, where you’ll have access to an exquisite spa, adults-only pool and sunset bar.

And no luxury getaway to the Canaries would be complete without a spot of gourmet dining. Any five-star hotel will have some fantastic restaurants, but the islands themselves offer up additional treats. Gran Canaria and Lanzarote have some wonderful à la carte restaurants, while Tenerife is the only island in the Canaries with Michelin-starred dining. There are just a handful of these highly-acclaimed restaurants here, specialising in everything from Spanish dishes to Japanese cuisine – so there’s something for all tastes.

Whether you’re looking for a family-friendly spot to stay or a romantic retreat for two, our luxury Canary Islands holidays have got you covered. Speak to our travel experts to find out more, and start planning your five-star getaway.

Luxury Tenerife hotels

If you’re considering a luxury holiday to the Canary Islands, take a look at Tenerife. The largest of the Canaries, this isle has some fantastic five-star hotels. Unwind in style near popular Costa Adeje when you stay at Royal Garden Villas. Home to just 28 individually-designed villas, this resort strikes the perfect balance between luxury and privacy. You can go for a dip in your very own heated pool, catch some sun on your secluded terrace, and enjoy a therapeutic soak in your bubbling bathtub. Or head to Golden Pond Spa for a rejuvenating treatment, then go for a swim in the communal infinity pool.

Alternatively, take a look at GF Victoria. With distinct areas for families and couples, this luxury hotel has been cleverly designed to suit everyone. Couples will love the adults-only rooftop bar – complete with ‘floating’ glass pool – and the incredible BIO-SPA Victoria. Elsewhere, the waterpark and adventure zone are perfect for families. Whoever you’re travelling with, you’re guaranteed to love your spacious suite. Prepare to feel like a VIP as you sip cocktails on your sun-soaked balcony, or get ready for dinner in your plush bedroom.

Luxury Lanzarote hotels

Lanzarote is a lot smaller than Tenerife, but it still has its fair share of five-star hotels, making it a great choice for a luxury holiday to the Canaries. Take Hotel The Volcan Lanzarote, for instance. Designed to look like a Canarian village, this place boasts a wonderful spa, two à la carte restaurants and four pools. For the ultimate treat, though, why not upgrade to stay in Club Volcan? Exclusively for adults, this part of the hotel has its own private lounge and sun terrace, along with a heated pool and waiter-service Balinese beds. You’ll also receive extra privileges, such as complimentary afternoon tea and breakfast in bed.

But if you’re looking to truly unwind, consider staying at Hotel Lava Beach. With a focus on wellness, this hotel prides itself on its luxury spa, adults-only pool, and professional yoga and Pilates classes. Families can also make the most of the bike hire, mini-golf and kids’ pool. There are a variety of options for dinner, or you could head to the idyllic Lava Lounge Bar to watch the sunset with a cocktail in hand.

Fine dining

Tenerife is the only Canary Island that can boast Michelin-starred dining. Several restaurants on the island can lay claim to this hard-won accolade so, if you’re a real foodie, this is the place to come for your luxury holiday.

Feast on Chilean-Italian fusion dishes at NUB, or head to Kazan for delicious Japanese cuisine, beautifully presented on lava trays. Or, for an authentic taste of the Canaries, book a table at Rincon de Juan Carlos. In the popular holiday town of Los Gigantes, this Michelin-starred eatery has an à la carte menu featuring seafood and local produce, while the exquisite tasting menu is accompanied by 12 wine pairings from across the Canary Islands. Alternatively, if you’re prepared to flash the cash, visit the exclusive M.B. restaurant at Ritz-Carlton Abama – it’s the only restaurant in Tenerife to have been awarded two Michelin stars.

Meanwhile, over in Lanzarote, Restaurante Lilium is the proud owner of a Michelin Bib Gourmand commendation – which means you can expect top-quality food, for a reasonable price. Take a seat and tuck into freshly-caught seafood, like scallops and tuna, as you look out over the yacht-filled Lanzarote Marina.

Best time to go

There’s never a bad time to go on holiday to the Canary Islands, as the archipelago is warm and sunny throughout the year. In the height of summer – July to September – temperatures hover in the high-twenties, but often climb up into the thirties. Naturally, this time of year is very popular with families, so if you’re hoping to go when the beaches are a little quieter, consider booking your trip for June or October. Even in these shoulder months, temperatures still average 25°C.

But winter is another great time for your luxury holiday to the Canary Islands. It might not be as consistently hot as summer, but it’s still significantly warmer here than winter in the UK. Between November and March, you can expect temperatures to remain in the high teens and early twenties. So you can make the most of your heated pool and sandy beaches, before returning home with a healthy glow.
