Overview

Nestled on the spectacular slope of Mount Teide, the Ritz-Carlton Abama is a stunning luxury resort. This Moorish-inspired hotel is set in the peaceful retreat of Guia de Isora, in Tenerife, and boasts its own Dave Thomas-designed championship golf course, a tennis academy, a cycling centre, and adventurous kids’ club. A private beach is easily accessible by resort train, and there are multiple pools, extensive spa facilities and tempting dining options – including two Michelin-starred restaurants. Expect only the best at this five-star hotel, which prides itself on delivering superior service.

Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, the Ritz-Carlton Abama resort covers nearly 400 acres of land. The golf course winds around the back of the property and Abama Beach is accessible via a complimentary resort train or panoramic funicular. The resort’s 40-seater train runs daily, transporting guests from the lobby to the beach, via a scheduled itinerary of stops. Visit Playa San Juan, just over two miles away, to sample alternative restaurants and bars – and return to the resort to admire glorious sunsets overlooking the neighbouring island of La Gomera. The resort is around 22 miles from Tenerife South Airport.

Unwind in a stylish room or suite, amid calming neutral tones. The floor-to-ceiling windows fill the rooms with natural light and offer breathtaking views across the Atlantic Ocean or tranquil surroundings. There are three main categories of room in the main Citadel Building: Deluxe Rooms, Junior Suites and One Bedroom Suites. You can upgrade each of these to a Club-level room or suite, which includes a range of additional benefits such as access to the Club Lounge on the tenth floor of the Citadel building. Here a concierge team provides personalised service, light snacks and refreshments throughout the day. This spacious lounge also offers private check-in and check-out, complimentary use of a newspaper and magazine library app, and access to the water circuit in the spa.

For the most premium experience, choose one of the luxurious villas, situated away from the main Citadel Building. Tagor Villas occupy one row of villas and are designed for adults-only. They have their own adjacent pool, shared with guests staying in that specific row. Families and adults can stay in the other three rows of villas, and can use the dedicated outdoor, semi-private swimming pools – or the family pool located at the main Citadel Building. All adults who are staying in villa accommodation also have access to the adult-only El Mirador Pool. Villa Club benefits will automatically apply to your stay, so you will receive a daily a la carte breakfast at El Mirador restaurant, complimentary poolside refreshments, access to the El Mirador Club Lounge, and much more.

Other facilities

Various swimming pools are scattered throughout the sub-tropical grounds – some perfect for couples seeking privacy, and some more suited to families with smaller children. The largest is the Lagoon Pool, set in the resort’s Citadel section. The Cascade Pool is a family-friendly option, complete with a shallow pool for little ones. If you head to the beach, it’s sheltered by manmade rocks, making it safe for swimming.

Find serenity at the 2,500 square-metre spa, where a range of water and relaxation therapies will soothe and revitalise you. Soak in the hydrotherapy pool or listen to the lapping waves of the Atlantic Ocean while enjoying a massage in the outside cabana. All spa treatments and therapies incorporate locally sourced ingredients, such as sweet-smelling, tropical papaya or soothing Aloe Vera. There’s also a herbal steam bath, a Turkish hammam, plunge pool and tranquil spa garden.

If you’re feeling active, hone your game on the beautiful 18-hole golf course while soaking up glorious ocean vistas. Perfect for advanced golfers, the varied terrain here includes 22 water hazards and white-sand bunkers. Otherwise, head to the state-of-the-art fitness centre for a workout or practise your serve at the tennis court. The hotel is perfect for cyclists, too, since you can bring your own bike or hire one from the Cycling Centre. Ask for customised maps and professional cycling tools to help you safely explore the island by bike.

The Ritz Kids’ Club is a great recreational area for children between the ages of 4 and 12 years old. Access to the club is complimentary if parents accompany their children. Otherwise, a half or full day charge is applicable when children participate in the available programs. The Ritz Kids’ Club offers indoor and outdoor space, and a range of activities based on themes of water, land, environmental responsibility and culture. Kids are educated on topics ranging from coral reefs and forests, to recycling and sustainability, storytelling, art and even nutrition. Teens aren’t forgotten here, with The Zone Fun & Entertainment which features a rock stage with instruments (tutors are available for music lessons), a DJ booth, arcade-style games, car and bike racing simulators, an art wall and a lounge area.  

Dining information

There’s a great choice of dining options here, appealing to all tastes. Begin the day with breakfast at La Veranda, where you’ll find an international buffet spread and omelette bar. Alternatively, those staying in a Villa can enjoy a scenic breakfast at the clifftop restaurant, El Mirador. This ocean-facing venue opens to all guests for lunch and dinner and specialises in locally sourced seafood and paella dishes.

The Beach Club is perfect for a light lunch. Situated on the beach, this al fresco venue offers spectacular ocean views towards La Gomera Island and serves freshly prepared barbecue delights and drinks until sundown. There’s also the poolside outlet, Los Chozos, where you can taste local specialities and refreshments by the main pool, while La Casa Club provides an idyllic spot for lunch, in the Club House of the golf course.

For dinner, don’t miss the fabulous M.B., created by the award-winning chef, Marin Berasategui. This Michelin-starred restaurant serves authentic Basque cuisine, accompanied by fine wines from the wine cellar. Martin Berasategui is also the chef behind Txoko, where you’ll find a menu of creative tapas-style dishes. Kabuki is another Michelin star offering, specialising in exquisite Japanese dishes with a modern twist. Additional options include a tempting Italian restaurant called Verona, as well as 20/20 Steakhouse.

Regional volcanic wines are available at most restaurants, and the Lobby Bar provides creative cocktails and live music late into the evening. Resembling a traditional pub, the Sports Bar shows live sport events on a large television.

We highly recommend that reservations are made in advance, especially for the two Michelin star restaurants. Please email: rc.tfsrz.diningreservations@ritzcarlton.com. Guests staying on a half board basis will receive a three-course dinner in either 20/20, Txoko, El Mirador or Verona. Dinner can be exchanged for a three-course lunch (prior notice might be necessary) available at either Los Chozos, The Club House or The Beach Club. Alternatively, a credit of €46 per adult is available in the two Michelin star restaurants. Please note that only children older than six years are allowed to dine in these two restaurants and will receive a credit of €23 per child. Drinks are not included. The hotel restaurants opening times vary depending on the season and may close without notice for long periods of time.

Customers who have booked half board on the 31 December can enjoy an early three-course dinner at 20/20 or Verona (between 17:30 and 19:30). Alternatively, a credit of €53 per adult and €26.50 per child can be used towards one of the available gala dinner options (subject to availability). Please contact the hotel to book your preferred choice of restaurant or gala dinner as soon as your booking is made to avoid disappointment. A full board option is now available at the hotel. Full board will include a two-course lunch at either Los Chozos, The Club House or The Beach Club and a three-course dinner at either El Mirador, 20/20, Verona or Txoko. The half board and full board options do not cover in-room dining or beverages.
