Soak up breathtaking views of remote La Gomera island and the Atlantic Ocean from this terracotta-pink retreat, perched on a lofty Tenerife hilltop. The hotel’s balmy botanic gardens provide a vivid emerald counterpart to the azure glory of the sea and the sky, with each of the 459 rooms and suites cleverly positioned to maximise that view. Foodies can eat their way around nine excellent dining venues, two toting a total of three Michelin stars. Additional lures include a septet of swimming pools, access to a stellar golf course, a glittering beach within reach, and a blissful spa with a herbal steam bath, Turkish hammam, plunge pool and tranquil spa garden.

Enjoy moreish Mediterranean cuisine with bay views at Es Castell. And there’s also Sa Font Pool Bar for light bites and Bar Armas for the best cocktails and tasty tapas, if you want to go native.
