• The uber-luxurious Gran Hotel Atlantis Bahia Real, in Fuerteventura, is soon going to run out of room to put all its awards. It’s bagged a handful from Condé Nast Johansens, plus five consecutive TripAdvisor Certificates of Excellence – basically, it’s a pretty big deal.

    So, what’s the secret to this trophy-collecting hotel? Perhaps it’s the location, right next to the beach, and a stone’s throw from Corralejo’s sand dunes and Natural Park. Maybe it’s the two lagoon-like pools, or the Balinese beds at the Coco Beach chill-out area. Whatever it is, Gran Hotel Atlantis Bahia Real’s definitely doing something right, as – just like the awards – guests come back year after year.  


    Firstly, let’s talk bedrooms. Whether you opt for a standard room, or decide to push the boat out a bit with an upgrade, you’ll be met with an ornately decorated interior, along with things like satellite TV and a mini-bar. Atlantico Suites line up little luxuries like whirlpool baths and Nespresso machines, so you’ll never be far from a decent cup of coffee.


    One thing’s for sure, with six restaurants to choose from, you won’t go hungry here. Themed menus at La Alacena Real give you a taste of both local and international dishes, plus you’ll get a great sea view from the garden patio. The Japanese restaurant, Yamatori, goes all out to impress – expect Teppenyaki live cooking and delicately arranged sushi. And, if you fancy dressing up and having an extra special night, head to the gourmet dining restaurant, La Cupula, where you can enjoy artistic food that wouldn’t look out of place in a gallery.


    Spa-lovers, listen up. The cutting-edge Spa Bahía Vital is spread out over 3,000 square-metres, and houses a hydrotherapy area, with cascading waterfalls, water beds and plunge pools. There’s even a Finnish sauna. On the treatment front, interesting things like Indian mushroom and Hawaiian lomi lomi massages crop up, along with some more familiar facials and body wraps.
