The new Paradisus Salinas Lanzarote offers 282 rooms and villas, a 1,800-square-meter swimming pool, beautiful tropical gardens designed by César Manrique and seven restoration proposals.

With unusual lunar landscapes, volcanoes, virgin beaches, picturesque towns and a privileged climate, the island of Lanzarote, a Biosphere Reserve, is the perfect destination for travelers who love nature, beauty and want to soak up the essence of a fascinating Lanzarote. . In this dream enclave, surrounded by the magnificent beaches of Costa Teguise and towns rich in culture and charm, is the new Paradisus Salinas Lanzarote.

The hotel, the second in the portfolio of the luxury resort brand Paradisus by Meliá in Europe, reinvents the traditional "all-inclusive" concept, transforming it in an innovative way through new experiences related to the nature of the destination, exploring each and every one of the your chances.
Under the motto "Embrace Your Nature", the Meliá Hotels International firm offers an authentic immersion in the culture of each of the places where its hotels are located.

With hotels in Mexico and the Dominican Republic, the Paradisus by Meliá philosophy materializes in Europe with Paradisus Meliá Salinas and Paradisus Gran Canaria, which opened its doors last May.
Designed by Fernando Higueras and César Manrique, the building combines the rationalist architecture of Higueras and the murals, swimming pool and garden design of the Canarian artist and painter.

More than 40 years ago, Higueras took over the main building with the idea that the concrete, the formwork, the geometry of the folds and the monumental exaggeration blend with nature and the environment. For his part, Manrique took over the reins of the hotel pool, with an area of ​​1,800 square meters, of the design of the impressive tropical gardens —with more than 300 plant species— and of the frescoes and sculptures that give color and warmth to the building. and interiors.
