  • About this holiday

    Set amidst banana trees on the rocky, black-sand coast of La Palma, the Hotel Hacienda de Abajo is an Emblematic hotel with a very traditionally Canarian feel and five star facilities. The unique pink/red exterior of this exclusive Spanish hotel gives way to light, airy rooms that command the gentle sea breeze and the natural open air. Traditional local food is served in the excellent restaurant, just as every inch of the hotel pays homage to the beauty of the Canary Islands. Use this holiday to explore one of the Canaries’ less-touristy islands, discovering volcanic craters, black sandy beaches, and tropical forests. This luxury holiday is perfect for those looking to spend a week or so relaxing in the Spa or by the beach, or actively exploring this magnificent island.

    Our opinion

    With luxury and exclusivity at its core, this Emblematic hotel on La Palma gives its guests a true taste of the natural and cultural beauty of the Canary Islands.

    Hotel description

    This 'Emblematic Hotel' is an idyllic, secluded retreat with a boutique air, five-star services, situated a short distance from many pretty towns on La Palma. Accepting only guests above the age of 16, the Hacienda de Abajo is perfect for couples looking to spend a week relaxing in the sun, beside the beach, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Historic charm is mingled with the tranquillity of the rural, seafront location in this exclusive Spanish hotel, in a style that is typical of the Canary Islands. Emerging from the ‘sea of bananas’ that is such an integral part of this plantation’s history, the red and pink walls of the Hacienda de Abajo are a combination of striking and traditional. Classified as the Canary Islands’ first ‘Emblematic Hotel,’ this tropical haven is an integral part of Canarian history. The Hacienda’s several buildings include a Main House decorated with Arabic tiles and open balconies, a peaceful inner garden, two newly built houses, and an oratory which echoes the style of the old estate’s chapel. Rich art adorning the public rooms and bedrooms is a valuable addition to La Palma’s wider cultural heritage. Each room is individually decorated with opulent ornaments, historic beds in the Premium Individual rooms, and majestic furnishings. The cuisine of El Sitio Restaurant pays homage to the ancient farming traditions that helped the plantation flourish, and serves an innovative blend of international and Canarian dishes. The setting takes diners back to the building’s origins, with a vaulted, beamed roof, hanging chandeliers, and large, historic artworks. Enjoy the breakfast buffet or an afternoon drink on the romantic terrace of El Sitio Bar, before reclining on a lounger amidst tropical plants beside the swimming pool. For those looking for something even more indulgent, the Bath House Spa offers a range of treatments. A slow amble through the fields will bring you down to the water and the quaint Puerto de Tazacorte. The water’s edge is lined with a black sand beach, and the colourful houses of Tazacorte rise up from the promenade. Spend your days either enjoying the excellent facilities and service at the hotel, or venture out into La Palma’s magnificent landscape, exploring tropical forests, steaming volcanic craters, and locating the charming lighthouses that line the rocky shore.

    Out and aboutnearby/local interest

    On the small island of La Palma, the best attractions are the diverse areas of natural landscape. Travel down to Fuencaliente to see the dramatic volcanoes, the lighthouses, or stop off in a winery. Follow the volcano route around the island to walk in the deep craters. Navigate your way through the dense Los Tilos forest, or relax on the black sand of Puerto Naos Beach, just a stone’s throw from your hotel. Perhaps the greatest beauty spot on the island is the Caldera de Taburiente National park. Closer to the Hacienda de Abajo, spend time on the beautiful Blue Flag Port of Tazacorte, or head to the capital to see the old town of Santa Cruz de La Palma.
