Overview

Nestled on a spectacular clifftop, 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, with access to an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Ryder Cup player Dave Thomas, a tennis academy, a cycling centre, and adventurous kids’ club. A secluded 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.

For the most premium experience, choose to stay in one of the most exclusive and quiet areas of the resort. Divided into four streets, each Casitas Villa building has an adjacent pool, shared with guests staying in that specific row. Upgrade to an adult-only Citadel Club room or suite for exclusive access to the Club Lounge and the Persian Garden pool.

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.

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 Villa accommodation 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, Txoko, where you can taste local specialities, tapas 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. Kabuki is another Michelin star offering, specialising in exquisite Japanese dishes with a modern twist. Additional options include a tempting Italian restaurant called Verona.

Regional volcanic wines are available at most restaurants, and the Lobby Bar provides creative cocktails and live music late into the evening. 

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 Txoko, El Mirador or Verona. Dinner can be exchanged for a two-course lunch (prior notice might be necessary) available at either Txoko, The Club House or The Beach Club. Alternatively, a dinner credit 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. Drinks are not included. The hotel restaurants opening times vary depending on the season and may close without notice for long periods of time.

The New Years Eve Gala Dinner options are not included. If you have booked the bed and breakfast meal plan you can add the Gala Dinner by contacting us or the hotel directly, no other dining options will be available on the 31 December. If you have booked to stay on half board or full board on the 31 December you can enjoy an early dinner (limited restaurant choice) or a discount towards the Gala Dinner. As choices are limited please contact the hotel to book your preferred choice of restaurant or Gala Dinner as soon as your booking is made to avoid disappointment. The half board and full board options do not cover in-room dining or beverages.

Additional information

Bookings are required for the kids’ club, especially during school holidays. To book a place at the kids’ club, please email: rc.tfsrz.kids.club@ritzcarlton.com.
