Spain's Canary Islands may be crowded with tourists looking for a sunny holiday, but the Abama Golf and Spa Resort, operated by Ritz-Carlton
, offers a little piece of paradise among all the bland tourist traps. The resort is vast and equipped with just about every convenience imaginable. Situated on a 160 hectare finca in a remote part of the island of Tenerife, the 478-room resort has it all: "Out of Africa"-inspired spa, 10 dining options, Dave Thomas-designed golf course, fitness center, Sánchez-Casal Tennis Academy, 8 swimming pools, and private beach accessed by a funicular from the hotel's cliff-top perch. The island of Tenerife itself is breathtakingly beautiful. Just 300 km from the African coast, just a bit north of the Tropic of Cancer, the "Island of Eternal Spring" boasts volcanic landscapes and lush vegetation surrounded by the blue Atlantic. And the views from the Moorish-style Abama Resort
(and its exclusive beach) are mind-blowing. Book the Reconnect Package and you'll enjoy daily buffet breakfast, one spa experience per person, one tasting menu per person in the restaurant La Pampa Verona, and late check-out at 3 pm with your accommodations.
Valid until October 31, 2008, the package starts at EUR 380 per night.
