Pioneering its unique Destination Inclusive® experiences, Paradisus by Meliá elevates the concept of “all-inclusive” to new heights, enveloping guests in the culture, nature, and essence of the locale. In tandem with its recently launched sister property in Spain, Paradisus Gran Canaria, Paradisus Salinas Lanzarote is taking 2023 by storm, sparking a true transformation in the landscape of Spanish hospitality.
Encompassing 282 rooms and villas, a sprawling 1,800sqm swimming pool, and meticulously crafted tropical gardens by César Manrique, the new Paradisus Salinas Lanzarote captivates with its offerings. This destination, nestled amidst Costa Teguise’s serene beaches and culturally rich villages, thrives as a haven for those enamoured by Lanzarote’s lunar terrains, volcanoes, unspoiled shorelines, and charming towns. A Biosphere Reserve, Lanzarote beckons nature enthusiasts and beauty seekers, and Paradisus Salinas Lanzarote is perfectly poised to capture the island’s essence.
Paradisus Salinas Lanzarote, the second European jewel of the luxury resort brand Paradisus by Meliá, emerges as a reinvention of the traditional “all-inclusive” paradigm. Envisioned by the esteemed Spanish architect Fernando Higueras, the structure stands as a remarkable architectural gem, designated as an Artistic and Cultural Heritage site within Lanzarote. It pioneers fresh experiences entwined with the natural offerings of the destination, aligning with Meliá Hotels International‘s ethos of authentic cultural immersion across its properties’ locales.
“Embrace Your Nature” stands as the rallying cry, as Meliá Hotels International presents an unfiltered cultural journey at every location it graces. With a presence in Mexico, the Dominican Republic, and now in Lanzarote, the Paradisus by Meliá philosophy blossoms at Paradisus Salinas Lanzarote and Paradisus Gran Canaria.
Designed collaboratively by Fernando Higueras and César Manrique, the edifice harmonizes rationalist architectural elements with the vivid murals, poolscapes, and garden designs envisioned by the Canarian artist. Higueras’ vision, conceived over four decades ago, seamlessly blends concrete, geometry, and monumental aesthetics with the surrounding environment. Complementing this, Manrique’s touch graces the vast 1,800sqm pool, lush tropical gardens boasting over 300 plant species, and vibrant frescoes and sculptures adorning the structure’s interiors. Honoured with the International Prize for Architecture in 1979, the hotel now shines anew as Paradisus Salinas Lanzarote, a 5-star adults-only sanctuary boasting private beach access, a spa, gym, meeting facilities, outdoor pool, tennis court, rooms with private pools, villas, and a diverse range of dining experiences.
This architectural gem forms part of the prestigious Victoria Hotels & Resorts alternative investment initiative, a collaboration between Meliá Hotels International, Bankinter Investment, and GMA.
