When César Manrique, Lanzarote's great champion, envisaged sustainable tourism for his home island, he dreamt up the idea of a low-level luxury destination. So in the mid-70s the upscale Costa Teguise resort and the area's original hotel, Meliá Salinas, were born. This establishment would become the earliest five-star Lanzarote hotel.

A mere 15.5km stretch of the interconnecting LZ-3 and LZ-18 roads links Lanzarote's airport with its premier hotel, Meliá Salinas, in 15 minutes. Sandwiched between two sandy beaches, Playa de las Cuchara and Playa de los Charcos, on the island's northeast coast, this five-star Gran Lujo hotel enjoys an idyllic setting. Head to nearby Peskera, where the crunchy exteriors of octopus croquettes reveal creamy interiors to dip into the accompanying gofio (toasted cornmeal) alioli.

By plane: flights from London, Birmingham and Manchester to Lanzarote take around 4 hours 30 mins. The hotel is a 15-minute taxi ride from Lanzarote airport. Private parking is 5€ per day. Book flights to Lanzarote.

Putting the art into architecture, Fernando Higueras worked in close partnership with César Manrique to realise their intricate plans. The hotel doubles as an art gallery, with Paco Curbelo designing the lobby's Vera Yacente stone sculpture. A vanguard style combines with a chilled ambience that invites a leisurely cultural stroll.
