The five star Hotel Volcán in Lanzarote offers guests the chance of a very pleasant stay in very unique surroundings. The architecture of the hotel which is located in the Playa Blanca resort on the south end of Lanzarote goes well beyond what one would consider a traditional hotel design.
Spanish architect Andrés Piñeiro integrated into the design of the hotel various different areas which reflect some of the famous places and monuments of Lanzarote. The hotel includes church-like features as well as areas that remind one of a convent or the dome of a church. There is even an area which reflects the unique nature of the vineyard area of La Geria. There is also a reproduction of a volcano, inside of which is to be found the hotel reception. The 255 rooms are spread across twenty different buildings that go to make up this luxury five star holiday resort. The hotel overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and the Rubicon marina as well as the famous Papagayo beach and the island of Fuerteventura.
According to hotel manager Alexis Arteta, the design of the hotel Volcán is its most unique feature. The Times newspaper recently ranked the Volcán Lanzarote among the best luxury coastal hotels in Europe. According to assistant director Joanna Boehhke, British and Irish tourists are the main patrons of the Volcán registering average stays of between seven and fourteen days.
The hotel has 24 members of staff in the hotel kitchens who prepare different themed menus that include typical Canary Island dishes as well as Italian, Greek, French, Russian and Lebanese cuisine. Gluten-free menus are also available in the four restaurants. The hotel also markets its ‘Volcan Club’ experience aimed exclusively at adults. This programme offers an additional level of luxury and privacy through its 48 rooms. These rooms are equipped with all the amenities one could want including private butler service. So, if you fancy escaping the cold, dark British winter this unique hotel could be well worth a visit.
