Lanzarote is one of the islands in the Canary Islands off the west coast of Africa. The Canary Islands, although located just 125 miles from the African Coast and 1000 miles from Iberian Peninsula, are Spanish and they have become one of Spain’s leading tourist attractions. With the pleasant weather experienced on the islands and the beautiful sandy beaches, The Canary Islands have long been known as a popular holiday destination but one which, in the past has been associated with mass tourism however, that is starting to change. As more recently Lanzarote has become more upmarket.
Lanzarote has not yet reached the glitzy, glamour heights like places like Monte Carlo or Nice and probably never will do but it is becoming more stylish with added emphasis on chic and eco-friendly tourism. This of course means that now there are new hotels appearing, ones more in style with Lanzarote’s new appearance, hotels like the one at Laislayelmar.com in Puerto del Carmen.
The La Isla y el Mar is considered a Boutique Hotel that has 75 suites (one bedroom), 5 deluxe suites (two bedrooms) and one premier suit which is a loft style suite. Although Puerto del Carmen and Lanzarote as a whole can be a bustle of tourists, this hotel offers a place of peace and tranquility in the heart of the crowded turmoil.
Amenities at the hotel include a swimming pool which is heated during the winter months, a gym, a wellness center and a choice of two restaurants. It is centrally located just 17km from the island’s capital, 400mfrom the beach and yet only 500m from a shopping center, although there are a supermarket and pharmacy even closer just 50m away. It is even convenient for the Lanzarote Airport which is only 10km away and Lanzarote’s main beach, Playa Grande beach, is only 1km from the hotel.
The hotel’s wellness center includes a spa which specializes in treatments for couples although of course you can also get individual treatments if you prefer. Among the many different treatments the spa offers are some you may already know, some which are unique to Lanzarote and some which are even unique to the spa itself, all though are carried out with professionalism and care.
Other features of the hotel include unbeatable views of the Atlantic Ocean, a spectacular poolside terrace, Modern fusion cuisine including international, national and local wines available, a Chill-Out area and Wi-Fi throughout the entire hotel. The hotel represents the new style and appearance of Lanzarote and sets the standards for the next generation of hotels to be built on the island. Although this is a fairly new hotel, it has already been well received and so booking early is advisable. There are of course plenty of other hotels on the island but many of those cater to mass tourism charter companies and so often lack a touch of personal service and attention which this and similar hotels pride themselves in providing, catering to the needs of the individual rather than the tour operators.
