Holiday Perfection for Adults With Hotel Hacienda de Abajo

Some people want their vacation to be original and memorable; others are looking for unique natural surroundings and the ability to watch the stars at night. Then there are those, who want a relaxing and luxurious experience with no disturbances and those, who want to come back home telling unbelievable stories about the place they have visited. The team of Luxury Lifestyle Awards can proudly announce that there is a place that combines it all — Hotel Hacienda de Abajo, this year’s winner in the category of The Best Luxury Hotel in the Canary Islands, Spain.

10Hotel Hacienda de Abajo boasts a superb location on the west side of the La Palma Canary Island, in the historic center of Villa y Puerto de Tazacorte. This Spanish municipality is lucky to get the most hours of sunshine a year.

4 2Offering 32 beautifully decorated rooms and suites today, Hacienda de Abajo will also surprise the guests with its original history. This used to be a XVII century sugar estate, recognized by the Canaries’ Government as an integral part of the Historic Heritage of the Canary Islands. Thanks to this fact, Hotel Hacienda de Abajo received a rare status of an “Emblematic Hotel”.

3 2The first thing that meets the traveler’s eye is the unique location: a beautiful coast and turquoise waters of the Atlantic Ocean, magnificent gardens with lush vegetation, and unbelievable starry skies that persuade people to tell them their most intimate desires. In this magical place, it feels like the ocean connects with the sky and the “sea” of banana plants to form a haven of perfect harmony and tranquility.

7The resort consists of four buildings, spread about an exotic garden of the former farm. The new buildings have been harmonized with the original design of the sugar farm, which was carefully restored in 2010-2012 by the architect María del Carmen. It is notable that the dominance of sugarcane was replaced, at the end of the 19th century, by that of banana plants.

9The guests of Hotel Hacienda de Abajo are surrounded by some of the world’s most incredible art objects: tapestries with French and Flemish pieces from the 16th-18th centuries; Chinese sculptures, furniture and porcelain from the Tang to the Qing dynasties; European furniture from the 17th-19th centuries; delicate religious carvings from the 16th-19th centuries, a valuable art gallery with works from the 15th-20th centuries, and more. This is yet another reason why the esteemed experts of Luxury Lifestyle Awards believe Hacienda de Abajo is a unique and outstanding resort, worthy of special recognition.

6 1The guests of Hotel Hacienda de Abajo will not only enjoy a calm and relaxing vacation, thanks to the resort’s “adults only” concept, but will also be amazed by all the luxury that surrounds them, both natural and created by man.

8From the lavish rooms to an atmospheric outdoor pool with trust-based snacks (guests log in their purchases themselves); from a completely mesmerizing Bath House (Spa) to an opportunity to celebrate a special event in “La Capilla”, an unconsecrated chapel, equipped with audiovisual resources, — the professional team of Hotel Hacienda de Abajo has about every trick up their sleeve.

5 2A perfect vacation should definitely be complemented by perfect food. For this purpose, the exquisite El Sitio restaurant offers gourmet dining at the world-class level. The guests have a chance to learn about the cuisine of the Canary Islands from the best, while enjoying the incomparable views of the Atlantic Ocean. A vacation at Hotel Hacienda de Abajo is definitely an experience, in which nothing is missing.
