Playa del Duque beach

Tenerife: the star destination this summer

Stunning landscapes, idyllic beaches, gourmet gastronomy and a captivating culture are the best complements for an unforgettable summer

In summer we all look for the best destination to escape from routine and reconnect with ourselves. This awaits in Tenerife, the ideal place for your holidays. This destination offers indescribable landscapes and idyllic beaches with crystal-clear water and “golden” or “black” sand. Its gastronomy will entice you to stay, but its culture and people will make you feel at home.

If you don’t know where to stay, it is because you still haven’t visited our Bahía del Duque hotel. Located in Costa Adeje, on the seashore of Playa del Duque beach, it was the first luxury hotel to open its doors in Tenerife. Its architecture recreates a traditional 19th-century Canarian colonial villa. The ideal setting for enjoying a few days of switching off, relaxation, and complete pampering.

A universe of possibilities

Bahía del Duque has extensive entertainment options inside the hotel, with performances, yoga classes, tennis and paddle tennis courts and a very fun nightlife proposal. It also offers a wide range of activities, such as a guided visit around its lush botanical walk or boat trips to get to know Tenerife better.

Surrounded by 63,000 m2 of tropical vegetation, Bahía del Duque is the best setting for connecting with nature. Here, you can get carried away by what it offers and what we cannot stop admiring on a daily basis.

One plan you cannot miss is visiting the hotel’s astronomical observatory in order to explore the firmament of the Canaries. Tenerife is classed as one of the world’s best locations for star gazing at any time of the year. Thanks to the climate and good quality of its skies, you can observe 83 constellations of the 88 that are recognised. You can do so accompanied by an expert who will guide you through the experience.

However, if there is one thing Bahía del Duque offers, then it is a range of gastronomy, with 9 different restaurants and flavours from all over the world merged with local Canarian and seasonal produce. You cannot miss the chance to try the Nub restaurant, with a Michelin star and two Repsol Suns. Its chefs, Andrea Bernardi and Fernanda Fuentes-Cárdenas, will take your palate on a trip between Latin America and Europe.

A place to disconnect and reconnect
