An environmentally conscious hotel rooted in its stunning surroundings.
Gran Canaria is dramatic and diverse, with rolling mountains giving way to desert landscapes; sweeping arid vistas stark against their lush tropical alter-egos. At the southern tip of the island are the rippling, honey-toned Maspalomas Dunes, which wrap around the Santa Mónica Suites. You can even walk through some of the undulating sand expanses to reach the Atlantic Ocean beyond.
This environmentally friendly hotel is sensitive to its surroundings, designed to immerse guests in the Natural Dune Reserve of Maspalomas – without disrupting the protected terrain. These vistas act as a dreamy backdrop throughout the hotel, from ocean-facing rooms to dune-fringed terraces. The best spot to take in these views is from the huge, teardrop-shaped freshwater pool, fringed by tall palms and a smattering of sun loungers and parasols. Or turn the heat up in the glass-edged Finnish sauna, with the dunes and sea unfurling before you.
Santa Monica Suites is a tranquil hideout on the island’s south coast, with outdoor dining terraces, treatment rooms for massages, and soundproofed suites for a good night’s sleep. The white-washed rooms, accented by splashes of turquoise and canary yellow, are cool and calming cocoons. Opt for a Junior Suite Ground Floor to take advantage of a private terrace, or go for a Junior Suite Sea View to ascend to higher floors for the best ocean views.
