One of the most intriguing of all the Canary Islands, Lanzaroteâ€™s unique volcanic landscape, year-round sunshine and stunning beaches have enamoured it to visitors from all over the world. For those who crave the finer things in life (if just on their holiday!), Playa Blanca, on the south coast of the island, is home to one of the most outstanding resorts in Lanzarote.
Royal by Name, Inclusive by Nature
The 5-star Princesa Yaiza more than lives up to its royal moniker and, unlike some other upmarket resorts in Lanzarote, offers an inclusive hospitality to all kinds of holidaymakers, from families and couples to single adults and those with accessibility requirements. This genuine welcome extends from the accommodation and dining facilities right through to the onsite activities and entertainment. When you add to that its seafront location and magnificent panoramic views, the picture of perfection is complete.
As would be expected from one of the best resorts in Lanzarote, the Princesa Yaiza offers superb onsite dining. What one might not expect, however, is the range and diversity. Diners can choose from four a la carte restaurants and three buffets, with the Japanese inspired Kampai an absolute standout for sushi lovers. Guests are spoilt for choice when it comes to global gastronomy, with Mexican, Italian and, naturally, authentic Canary Island tapas. As well as the excellent restaurants there are also numerous bars and a very popular ice cream parlour.
For those who want to get active, the hotel offers a scheduled adults leisure programme as well as an expansive sports area, with various ball games and tennis courts. There are two large pools and, for children, the wonderful Kikoland provides 10,000sqm of fun-filled adventure playground.
Whatâ€™s a holiday without some well-deserved pampering? The onsite Thalasso and Spa Centre is a haven of well-being, with an ambience and view to die for. For the ultimate in relaxation, thereâ€™s nothing quite like a nurturing facial or body treatment overlooking the ocean. Pure blissâ€¦
5-Star Accommodation Fit for Royalty
Itâ€™s unusual for a hotel to be able to boast of being all things to all people, but indeed this one can. It also proves thereâ€™s no need to compromise on luxury even for those who are travelling with children.
As well as Family Suites that cater comfortably for parents and up to three children, the Royal Kiko Family Suite sets the scene for the ultimate family holiday indulgence, with a host of extras â€“ including a DVD player, Playstation and complimentary babysitting service. For romantic couples, the adults-only Superior Relax rooms provide an embarrassment of indulgence, with daily access to the Thalasso Spa and a delicious gourmet breakfast.
For those who require more specialised facilities, the Princesa Yaiza excels, with adapted suites that include wider doors and accessible bathrooms.
