OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

The fastest route from the airport to the Parador de La Palma takes eight minutes following the LP-5. Take the LP-2 to reach the capital Santa Cruz de La Palma in ten minutes. Once arrived, switch to Shanks' Pony to explore a network of hiking trails. Go up the country to Casa Osmunda where they pair sticks of aubergine grown in their vegetable garden with palm honey.

By plane: flights from London take around 9 hours with a stop in Barcelona; flights from Birmingham take around 11 hours with a stop in Tenerife. The hotel is a 1o-minute taxi ride from the airport. Free parking is available on-site. Book flights to La Palma.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

Opened at the tail end of the 1990s, the Parador de La Palma features a neo-classical Canarian design. The reception leads to an open and leafy patio. Architect Jesús Valverde incorporated a reproduction of La Gomera's famous Conde de la Torre to make the project feel even more insular.

THE FACILITIES

You feel looked after by the immaculately-attired staff. The gardens are extensive and you can walk along the well-tended paths, admiring the impressive foliage of verdant trees; it's the perfect place to collect yourself, particularly during the weekly Taichi sessions with Doctor Su. There is also a gym and padel court.
