  • Active family holidays in Tenerife at the Gran Hotel Bahia Del Duque

    Dynamic family holidays at the Gran Bahia Del Duque 

    A patchwork of colour framed by the rocky drama of the mountains behind, the five-star Gran Bahia del Duque is an active family’s haven in the year-round destination of Tenerife. It is a vast resort with an unexpected intimacy, wherein adults and children can get lost, indulge and partake in an endless list of facilities. 

    Beautifully landscaped and elegantly designed, Gran Hotel Bahia is a family holiday destination that appeals to all. The gently sloping grounds of this residential complex can be seen to reflect the quaint style of an authentic Canaries village, with each building painted in fun Crayola colours. These Disney-esque structures are marked by turrets, large arched windows and terracotta roofing tiles, and are surrounded by beautifully engineered grounds. The whole design has been well thought out, and at the heart of it all is a magnificent lagoon-style swimming pool that has small enclaves in which children can hide and play. It is a dynamic playground surrounded by plant bed rockeries filled with exotic palms, jacarandas, fruit and dragon trees, cacti and rubber plants. It is just a hop from here to Playa del Duque Beach, which, lined with shaded sun loungers, is perfect for swimming or relaxing, and  kids will love the ample space to play freely. From here, participate in off shore pursuits such as diving, windsurfing, parasailing and sailing, whilst elsewhere within the resort there are facilities for an endless list of land sports, from tennis to beach volleyball, jogging to horse riding. Meanwhile, the lush vegetation outside Gran Hotel Bahia welcomes exploration and parents interested in golf have five local courses to choose from.

    Interiors at the Bahia del Duque have been significantly improved by extensive refurbishment in 2009, in which the resort saw a total transformation. Public spaces are often elegant, modern and sophisticated. Some areas are more laidback than others, but there are certainly venues to suit all tastes, including nine restaurants and 12 bars. Each has a unique atmosphere, from intimate terraces for al fresco dining to elegant indoors dining rooms and poolside bars, where the emphasis is on Continental cuisine, with French,  Italian and tapas restaurants. Guestrooms are individually designed and show a Moroccan influence; they are light, airy and decorated in shades of ochre and sienna, though there are hints of Victorian and Venetian detail in the furnishing. Junior Suites are particularly recommended for families of up to two adults and two children because they offer additional space with a living area, balcony and a terrace. There are also the exclusive rooms of the Casas Ducales and the extravagant Villas.

    Family amenities at Gran Hotel Bahia del Duque
    Beyond the enticing active pursuits available on site, there are a range of family-oriented facilities to ease families into their stay at the Gran Hotel Bahia del Duque. For the youngest kids there is a babysitting service, and slightly older children benefit from well thought-out kids’ and teens’ clubs. The Duqui Club is for 3 to 12 year olds, offering fun and creative tasks throughout the day to keep youngsters entertained. Meanwhile, the Teen Lounge provides a contemporary den of relaxation in which youngsters can socialise and use the internet, Playstation and table football. An additional family-oriented facility is the Spa Family Sanctuary and the Teen Spa Experience, which is geared around mother-daughter bonding.

    Prices from £5650 based on a family of two adults and two children under 12 sharing two Casal Ducal Rooms for 7 nights. Price includes return flights with easyJet from London to Tenerife, private car transfers and bed and breakfast.
