The largest of Spain’s Canary Islands, Tenerife, is known for its diverse nature, vibrant culture, and pleasant year-round climate. As somewhere that never gets boring, visitors can expect a wide variety of activities throughout the year. Whether hiking, whale watching, golf, and diving are something you are looking for, or carnivals, summer music festivals and laid-back beach living, Tenerife has something for everyone.
This is a place where you can immerse yourself entirely in island living and forget about the stresses of everyday life. And no better place to help this become a reality than 5* Hotel Suite Villa María. Located in La Caleta, this traditional yet modern village sits on the clear Atlantic waters of Tenerife’s south coast. A somewhat hidden gem, the charming fishing village has gradually transformed into an elegant setting that offers some of the best restaurants, bars and hotels on the island. Here, both tourists and locals alike indulge in freshly caught seafood while enjoying stunning views of nearby La Gomera island.
Conveniently located just a few minutes drive outside the small town, Hotel Suite Villa María boasts stunning views of the skyline over the Atlantic Ocean, the adjacent golf course and the tranquil landscape that was once home to Tenerife’s emblematic banana plantations.
Hotel Suite Villa María opened in 2010 and has been modelled on traditional architecture and decor of the Canaries, but reimagined for the discerning 21st-century traveller. Guests can expect an intimate atmosphere of luxury and elegance, where the past and present seamlessly merge.
Its 78 detached, independent villas were all carefully designed by Tenerife native Antonio del Pozo. Each villa reflects the leading architectural styles seen in the Canaries over the centuries, such as the delicate combination of British colonial influences with rustic Canarian elements. Having recently started to redecorate the Villas in time for summer 2023, the exclusive accommodation is set to exceed guest expectations. Boasting lush private gardens, an outdoor Hydromassage bathtub, as well as a private heated pool, guests can enjoy the ultimate in privacy and relaxation, but with all the added services of a 5* hotel.
Each villa has a fully equipped kitchen, living room, air-conditioning, heating, designer garden/terrace furniture and bathrooms with a bath and hydro-massage shower. Four of the villas are also fully adapted for disabled guests.
Hotel Suite Villa María is also a destination venue for anyone who enjoys stellar gastronomic offerings. From sampling fine Canarian delicacies in the recently renovated dining room to enjoying easy eats poolside or indulging in your favourite dishes in the comfort of your villa, Hotel Suite Villa María has a culinary option to suit every taste.
On the first floor, guests can dine at the hotel’s signature Restaurant La Torre, which offers a menu bursting with the most sumptuous creations rooted in authentic Canarian flavours. Open for breakfast and dinner, the kitchen team uses locally-sourced products and expert techniques to ensure a taste sensation with every bite.
Some of the best-known beaches in the south of Tenerife are just minutes from Hotel Suite Villa María: Playa del Duque, with its golden sand and crystal clear waters; Playa La Enramada, with its black sand and relaxed atmosphere; and Playa Diego Hernández, an intimate beach in a fascinating natural area.
