As sea and sky collide above the colonial inspired Seaside Grand Hotel Residencia, you’ll find yourself instantly transported away from the daily grind and straight into laid-back island life. Nestled in the heart of a palm grove, the grounds provide a perfect oasis in which you can kick back poolside without a care in the world.
On the southernmost tip of the island your luxury pad lies amongst the palm oasis of Maspalomas, a stone’s throw from powder white beaches and impressive mountains. The hotel is also only a short drive away from the airport whilst a 45 minute car journey will have you in the thick of the action in Las Palmas, the island’s capital.
Residencia’s 94 rooms echo Spanish Colonial style with cool tiled floors, dark mahogany and blue upholstery to rival the dazzling Atlantic. Each spacious room has the luxury of its own balcony or terrace overlooking the pool and gardens. You’ll find all you need in your colonial styled bathroom, with products from L’Occitaine and Bvlgari serving as the perfect welcome gift. Lose yourself under an ocean of crisp white duvet for a dreamy night’s sleep and open your doors onto your private decking area in the morning to sneak away a few quiet hours of reading. These rooms really are the perfect hideaways in which to recover after a day of island exploration.
Why we like it
We just couldn’t get enough of the hotel’s Wellness Spa. Offering a wealth of indulging treatments, you’ll find it hard to resist sampling the entire menu. Escape to the salt cave or float in the candle lit pool for a romantic moment you’ll never forget and if you’re feeling brave enough, cool off in the ice fountain after a session in the spacious sauna. Luxury island living at its best.
