Our colleagues travelled recently to Tenerife and this is what they found:
We wanted to discover the real Spain in Tenerife by heading up to Hotel Botanico & The Oriental Spa Garden close to the main town of Puerto de la Cruz. Just an hour away from the South airport yet, you will feel like you are in a different destination altogether....with it’s cobbled streets and wooden balconies leading down to the traditional plaza and sea front, Puerto de La Cruz has all the charm you would expect from a traditional Spanish town.
With breath-taking views of Mount Teide and the Atlantic Ocean and a climate described as eternal spring offering an all year round average temperature of 25 degrees, it really is the perfect place, not only to unwind but also a comfortable climate in which to be active. Ideal for hiking, cycling and golf to mention just a few....
Where the majority of the locals choose to live, you will certainly get more for your euro. When it comes to local dining you will be spoilt for choice from tapas bars, tavernas and bodegas all within a short walking distance from the Hotel. True to their reputation the Spanish know how to have a good time and regularly host traditional events throughout the year.
Boasting the second largest Carnival in the world after Rio, you will get to witness the fantastic costumes and colourful street parades that will leave you enraptured. With regular festivals throughout the year to celebrate their culture.
Family owned and run, Hotel Botanico & The Oriental Spa Garden is the perfect place to stay. This luxury 5 star "Leading Hotels of the World" property offers a timeless elegance and haven of relaxation with it’s award winning Spa, recognised by Conde Nast as the best in Europe on numerous occasions.
It is no coincidence that many guests refer to the Hotel as their second home and return year after year. For me being an absolute nature enthusiast, the lush tropical gardens offer opportunities for privacy, calm, incredible flora, fauna & my favourite – a variety of butterflies. There are great facilities including floodlit Astroturf tennis courts, pool table – even 18-hole putting green as well as the dining options & bars.
My wife absolutely enjoyed their signature “Oriental Spa Garden” and it was an effort to pull her away on some days from the relaxing spa treatments. Thank goodness, she did not see that they also offered facials & body treatments ranging from chocolate wraps to wine baths!!!
With the year we are experiencing, this was a short-break we truly deserved, not only with I working in the travel industry but her working on the frontline of the NHS.
Considering this was our first ever visit to the Canary Islands – I can see why this hotel and North Tenerife provides much pleasure to many guests – new & returning.
