Don Gregory By Dunas

4

A Nordic-style twist on a breezy beachfront hotel in San Agustín.

A short hop east along the coast from Playa del Inglés takes you to San Agustín, a sleepy sliver hugging a sheltered bay. A wide promenade connects the two south-coast resorts, dotted with terraced restaurants serving day-fresh seafood from the Atlantic Ocean. Right on Playa de las Burras is Hotel Don Gregory by Dunas, with only a few swaying palms interrupting the ocean views.

Here, you can set your own pace: wake to the sound of the ocean and linger over leisurely buffet breakfasts, take dips in the infinity pool and soak up the sun on a lounger. Later, while away a few glorious hours in the spa before sundowners with a view. If you can’t sit still for too long, San Agustín bay is ideal for diving and snorkelling, or scenic walks.

The Nordic-style interiors are modern and minimalist – think slate-grey hues and light-flooded spaces, broken only by towering indoor plants in white pots and bronze-tinted floor lamps. A piano bar with exposed stone walls is an atmospheric spot for drinks, along with a restaurant that spills out onto an ocean-view terrace, with rattan chairs and fanning palms.

Rooms and suites are decked out in soothing creams and whites, with pale wood floors and full-length windows. Pick a Standard Balcony or Terrace Low Floor Room for your own private outdoor space, or go all out with a Premium Duplex Junior Suite for both a balcony and spacious digs with enough room for an en suite with bathtub.
