Sol Beach House at Melia Fuerteventura
Imagine a chilled-out surf pad for adults wanting the finer things in life, and you have INNSide by Melia Fuerteventura. This oceanfront bolthole overlooks the sparkling lagoon of Playa de Sotavento – a windsurfing hot spot, and home to the world championships. It’s a place to unplug and unwind: the vibe is relaxed, the interiors minimalist, and the food for buffet breakfast and dinner farm-to-fork fresh.
If you’re more into your asanas than your surf, then the outdoor yoga sessions against a dramatic Atlantic Ocean backdrop are for you – there’s no need for a Spotify relaxation playlist with waves crashing against the sand. An infinity-edge pool looks out over the same glorious vistas, as does the outdoor terrace and its lantern-lit wooden tables. You’re also surrounded by the untamed beauty of Jandía Natural Park, a wild sliver on the south-west spit of land jutting out into the Atlantic – great for scenic hikes.
The newly refurbished rooms and suites are styled as beach houses, with a pale colour palette accented by driftwood sculptures and headboards, rattan scoop chairs and brightly patterned cushions. Pick a INNSiDE Sea View Room for light-flooded digs overlooking the Atlantic, or go for a INSiDE Sea View Room with Garden which are located on the ground floor and have a terrace that leads to a small garden area. The Studios Sea View are wonderfully spacious and have added benefits such as a daily replenishment of selected drinks from the minibar thrown in.
