Hotel Melia Salinas

This upmarket five-star hotel was designed by architects Fernando Higueras and César Manrique. Higueras is responsible for the spectacular light-filled interiors, the glass-ceiling in the buffet restaurant and the upmarket suites (some with private whirlpool baths and sea view balconies). Manrique designed the huge outdoor pool, surrounded with loungers and day beds, and the gorgeous grounds, which are bursting with tropical flowers and shrubs. Relax at the state-of-the-art spa or head to the palm-tree-filled lounge bar for evening music and acrobatics shows. As well as a buffet restaurant, there’s also an Italian a la carte, which serves up delicious pizza and pasta amid an oasis of greenery. Hotel Melia Salinas is steps from the nearest beach and a very short stroll from the centre of Costa Teguise.

Overview of Lanzarote

But the popular Canary Island of Lanzarote also has architect César Manrique to thank for its surrealist concert halls, gardens and houses, which you can see all over the island. Spend at least some of yourholidays to Lanzarote checking out his work. And if you book a stay at Hotel Melia Salinas, you’ll get to experience his architecture first hand.

Things to do in Lanzarote

If you’re staying at Hotel Melia Salinas, you’ll enjoy checking out Costa Teguise’s beach scene. There are five beaches to choose from, linked by an oceanfront promenade, so it’s easy to wander between them. The lagoon-like waters make this one of the best spots for scuba diving in Lanzarote, and there are plenty of tour operators who’ll take you out. It’s only a 10-minute drive to the CésarManrique Foundation. This spectacular house is built into the lava and has a subterranean pool, modern artwork and subterranean rooms built in bubbles left by flowing lava. A holiday to Lanzarote is so much more than just a beach break. With its intriguing architecture and surreal volcanic landscapes, this unique island will leave a lasting impression.

Resort Summary

As the third most popular of Lanzarote’s holiday destinations, Costa Teguise offers a vast range of shops, restaurants and accommodation while still making the most of its stunning natural beauty – you can expect golden beaches, leafy palm trees and volcanic rock pools.

Costa Teguise also benefits from being extremely well connected transport wise. Arrecife Airport is a 15-minute drive away, the historic capital of Teguise only 10 minutes away by car, and attractions such as The Cuevas de Los Verdes and the Jardin de Cactus are right on your doorstep.

The windy climate makes Costa Teguise a haven for water-skiers and windsurfers, but for those looking for a chilled out vibe, there’s plenty to do that doesn’t involve working up some adrenaline. Lanzarote’s only waterpark is situated here, as is its aquarium, home to turtles, sharks and stingrays.

For the perfect family day out, Playa Bastain has a soft-play area and a bowling alley among the sun loungers and planted gardens. For art and culture lovers, famous artist residence Fundacion Cesar Manrique is a must-see.
