What's new at the Ritz-Carlton Tenerife, Abama
This landmark terracotta-coloured hotel has always been one of our favourite recommendations in the Canary Islands for a whole host of reasons. Its stunning location on an exclusive stretch of golden sand with natural pools and a wave breaker, in an unspoiled, remote setting is just one. After a recent refurbishment of their rooms and suites, including new Villa Suites complete with private pool, The Ritz-Carlton Tenerife, Abama is now even bigger and better.
Some of our Travel Counsellors were lucky enough to stay at the property recently, to truly get a feel for what The Ritz-Carlton Tenerife, Abama can offer. It’s these personal experiences, together with our travel consultants’ combined insider knowledge of hotels, resorts, and destinations, that allow us to hand-pick the very best holidays for your needs.
Travel Counsellors experienced the property through delicious lunches and dinners in restaurants including the new Verde Mar, which takes a vegetable-forward approach and focuses on fresh produce as the hero of each dish. They also enjoyed a water circuit in the brilliant volcanic spa, as well as a tour of the property in its entirety including the Villa Club. We’ve shared some of the many reasons why they would recommend this property unreservedly to you.
The restyled accommodation
The Ritz-Carlton Tenerife, Abama has more than 450 rooms and suites, all with a balcony or terrace (some ocean-view), so there’s something to suit everyone, from couples to large families.
This is a great place to get together with loved ones: its Villa Club offers a more personalised experience with a selection of two-storey casitas in a more secluded setting, so large groups and families can enjoy some privacy. All are close to the fabulous Ritz Kids’ Club and have access to two exclusive swimming pools (one adults-only) to give you the space and freedom you need.
The exquisite dining
Our Travel Counsellors loved trying out the resort’s new restaurant with its focus on vegetables, but there are a whole host of places to eat at this impressive resort. For fine Canary Islands cuisine there’s El Mirador, Txoko offers a modern takes on classic Spanish dishes, Verona is all about innovative Italian cuisine, and The Beach Club offers relaxed outdoor dining with beautiful views of nearby La Gomera Island.
The many activities on offer
Our Travel Counsellors saw that time together is what it’s really all about at The Ritz-Carlton Tenerife, Abama. Whether that’s in one of the seven swimming pools, around the ocean-view championship golf course or tennis academy, or while you’re making the most of the running and hiking trails through the resort’s lush 160-acre estate.
Nearby attractions include boat trips to spot whales and dolphins, viewing the night sky at the world’s largest solar observatory on Mount Teide, and even helicopter tours around Mount Teide’s summit.
"The hotel is truly amazing! The refurbishments really have an impact. The staff provided amazing service and were all so friendly and attentive. And the food... well that is another level!"
Helen, Travel Counsellor
"As soon as I arrived I was made to feel welcome and special. The hotel is spilt into two sections - the Citadel and the villas. I would upgrade to the villa section as you get exclusive access to the Villa Club lounge which includes an adults-only pool, unlimited beers, wines and fizz, complimentary tapas throughout the day, sunset cocktails, and sunbed service all day."
Emma, Travel Counsellor
"We stayed in the entry level rooms which were really well laid out. They had lots of wardrobe space, a great bathroom, and a gorgeous big balcony with sea view. The food was incredible, with several places to eat and drink, plus the staff in all areas of the hotel were so friendly. I honestly can’t think of anything I didn’t love about this hotel."
Angela, Travel Counsellor
"The hotel is certainly a foodies paradise! The food on offer at the restaurants were of such a high-standard – for both presentation and taste – it's definitely one of the best hotels I have ever dined at. My favourite restaurant was El Mirador; a fish restaurant overlooking the sea where we dined for lunch one day."
"I’m so grateful of the experience we had. Not only did I absolutely love our stay at the hotel but I got to meet other Travel Counsellors who were such a great group of people with a variety of experience."
