A world of class in a classic Spanish village


When choosing luxury hotels in Spain, do you look at the description first, or the photographs? Where the Gran Hotel Bahia del Duque is concerned, either is certain to catch your attention.

From its impressive list of amenities and facilities, including eight top class restaurants, nine high quality bars and five outstanding swimming pools, to the images of a hotel that’s a cross between a Disney castle and Portmeirion in Wales, the Gran Hotel Bahia del Duque certainly has what it takes to make a bold statement.

But don’t imagine for a moment that this is about just catching your attention or making an initial impact. If either the list of facilities or the visual images of a classic Spanish village seem impressive, the realty inside continues the story, with a service that’s second to none and more leisure opportunities to enjoy than most people have had holidays.

The Gran Hotel Bahia del Duque is certainly one of the world’s most unusual hotels, styled as it is on a mixture of architectural styles which together comprise what appears to be a small village of Italian style villas complete with patios, turrets and even a campanile, all laid out in an attractive and fascinating arrangement, interspersed with swimming pools, bars, restaurants and leisure facilities.

There are few luxury hotels which can truly be said to be picture postcard, but with the Gran Hotel Bahia del Duque you may very well find yourself enjoying exploring the grounds as much as any local town or village.

Nestled in the heart of 16 acres of tropical gardens which tumble down to the El Duque beach in the Costa Adeje, the Gran Hotel Bahia del Duque is situated in one of the most picturesque areas of Tenerife.

Choose either one of the original 20 villas, or take luxury to the next level with one of the 40 exclusive luxury villas, each of which boasts a private garden and swimming pool, private reception area and B&O music equipment. Perhaps what really makes the luxury villas stand out is the fact that each of them comes complete with a private butler service, providing you with an experience of a lifetime.

Of the five swimming pools available in addition to your private pool, two are saltwater pools, and two are heated, and for children there is a separate pool for hours of safe fun. In fact children’s facilities at the Gran Hotel Bahia del Duque are of a particularly high standard, meaning that bored children are never a problem, and the wide range of menus and dining opportunities also means that virtually every culinary preference can be catered for.

For adults the range of sports and leisure facilities are one of the most comprehensive to be found at any luxury hotel, and with facilities ranging from an astronomical observatory to a peaceful, outdoor spa which offers Thalassotherapy treatments and a hot stone massage with lava rocks, the Gran Hotel Bahia del Duque provides all the comforts of home, with all the luxuries of a world-class personalised service.
