Ritz-Carlton, Abama, Tenerife

If part of your dream vacation is playing golf on a manicured, beautiful-but-challenging 18-hole course – against a backdrop of stunning sea views – then Ritz-Carlton Abama is a hole-in-one.

On the other hand, if your idea of personal heaven is being pampered in a choice of truly holistic spas, with all the latest therapies and wellness treatments, you have found your nirvana.

And Ritz-Carlton Abama goes further than its name suggests. A funicular carriage takes you to an unspoilt, private beach; a crescent of irresistible golden sand beside the tranquil sea. Where you can lounge and laze whilst waiters bring you iced refreshments. For the evening there’s a whole menu of restaurants, a café and four completely different bars. At Ritz-Carlton Abama, the dream comes true.
