    Our opinion

    Gran Hotel Bahia del Duque offers the ultimate in relaxation and luxury, set alongside a beach in southern Tenerife.

    Hotel description

    Gran Hotel Bahia del Duque is a five-star, colonial-style hotel on the southwestern coast of Tenerife. Surrounded by 63,000sqm of tropical gardens with palm trees, dragon trees, flame trees, and Indian laurels, this member of the Leading Hotels of the World group prioritises indulgent luxury. The rooms are afforded a sense of privacy and seclusion through their homely furnishings, private terraces and balconies, and the villa arrangements. Excellent facilities make the Gran Hotel Bahia del Duque ideal for those looking for long relaxing breaks in the sun, with plenty of time to take in the magnificent views. Eight restaurants break up the luxurious resort and serve a varied selection of flavours, from Italian and Basque to Asian cuisine, with the Las Aguas restaurant specialising in Canarian food. The food at La Brasserie bears the elegant touch of double-Michelin-starred chef Pierre Résimont. On top of this, a wide range of bars are available, including a Piano Bar, Beach Bar, and Wine Bar, all of which are impeccably decorated with the identity of their location, food, and drink in mind. This attention to detail is continued in such facilities as the Thalasso Spa, and the unique observatory, from which you can enjoy Tenerife’s unpolluted sky. Direct access to the El Duque Beach promenade makes for hassle-free lunches and afternoon drinks on the beachfront, and encourages guests to utilise the watersports available on the shore. The proximity of the beach, combined with the serene interior decoration and high quality services, make the Gran Hotel Bahia del Duque the ultimate relaxing resort from which to explore the island.
