The perfect location for anyone who enters the New Year itching to book a hot and sunny holiday, but without the funds or time to head all the way to the Caribbean, The Canaries tend to hit the hotter temperatures rather earlier than the more traditional holiday spots in Spain and Portugal, and it’s pretty moderate all year round.
Key amongst The Canary Islands’ defining attributes are the beaches. As volcanic islands, they are known for their rugged environment and black sand beaches (as well as a few more traditional white ones thrown in for good measure).
An autonomous part of the Spanish community, the main islands in The Canaries include Tenerif, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro (from largest to smallest). In addition to the subtropical climate and curious beaches, the islands are known for their interesting wildlife and their place in history. Bohemia Suites & Spa itself is on the second largest island in the archipelago, Grand Canaria.
On La Gomera for example you can spend the day pottering around villages and beaches, or head into the rainforest in the island’s centre for a hike, in what feels like another world. On the other hand, in 2005 UNESCO declared Gran Canaria, home of Bohemia Suites & Spa to be part of the Biosphere Reserve, so a trip around there is also a must to really understand its beauty.
So where to stay? Bohemia Suites and Spa on Gran Canaria is a mere 25 minutes from Las Palmas Airport, and brings you the best of everything The Canary Islands have to offer. Modern architecture blends with the beauty of the volcanic rock and the views are spectacular, especially from the 360° Restaurant.
Chic and contemporary, the hotel is also wonderfully romantic and to complete the picture they also have dual treatment rooms, so you can have your spa treatment (all based on traditional Thai knowledge) with your other half.
Alongside the romance, there is a definite sense of wellness, partially because of the balmy temperatures and partially because of the spa itself, which aims to take you on a journey to the mystic capital of the Siam Kingdom, Ayutthaya with its use of Ytsara and Anne Semonin products, Balinese techniques and collection of treatments.
