Paradisus by Meliá Brand Makes its Debut in Spain

In late March, the luxury Paradisus by Meliá brand made its debut in Spain with the opening of Paradisus Gran Canaria. Located on the island of Gran Canaria, it provides 297 rooms and suites, wellness facilities with the latest technology, and nine dining areas that offer global cuisine and traditional local flavors.

With the architecture, design and interior design led by the ASAH studio of the architect Álvaro Sans, all guestrooms and suites, the superior Nikté and The Reserve sections (the latter with private and adults-only areas) have neutral and relaxing colors accompanied by contemporary furniture and artisan decorations There is also a focus on works by local artists, which are prominent in each of the areas in the room. Good to know: To comply with the hotel group’s commitment to sustainability, the bedding and amenities are 100 percent sustainable, recyclable and made using environmentally friendly materials. The products in the minibar are all produced by local artisans to reduce their impact on the environment.

The experiences on offer appeal to both adventure-lovers, such as hiking in the “Sacred Mountains," and to travelers who want to find out more about local products and the traditions behind them. Paradisus Gran Canaria opens a door to coffee plantations, distilleries and wineries such as the Finca La Laja, the Arehucas rum distillery, or Los Berrazales

Guests can also enjoy nine different dining experiences at the hotel, from spaces for a relaxing, informal meal to elegant signature restaurants serving contemporary cuisine. There are also cocktail bar experiences, tapas and plenty of fun by the pool or alongside the sea, available at all times.  To get a better understanding of the dishes available in the Peseta or Kanna Night restaurants, guests can also visit the famous La Acuarela Restaurant in Mogan, in which Germán Ortega has earned considerable fame over many years. Awarded a Michelin star and two Repsol Guide Sols, his restaurant is one of the most famous on the island. Ortega trained at the Vassa Eggen Restaurant in Stockholm, the two-Michelin-star The Latonnie in England and the Hacienda Benazuza. These influences and his vast experience are behind his design of the menus for both restaurants and the creation of a three-course tasting menu for Peseta which will change with the seasons of the year. 

Following the opening of Paradisus Gran Canaria, the brand will open Paradisus Salinas Lanzarote in Spain on May 22. The Paradisus Salinas Hotel in Lanzarote, designed by the architect Fernando Higueras, will also work with Germán Ortega and pay tribute to the products from La Graciosa
