Christmas in the Sun, Luxury and Voluptuousness in the Canaries

From snow to sun, sand and volcanoes – the archipelago reveals itself as the best spot for the end of the year. At the same spot as the milky way. 

The most luxurious destination of this winter? The Canary Islands. Birthplace of the superb Manolo Blahnik, the Canary islands are above all the place where we can feel the softness and luxury of living! The seven-island archipelago is caressed by the winds, coiled in the anticyclone of the Acores. Small corner of absolute pleasure and softness at all times of the year, it is above all else the place to be for an inspiring end of the year. Between luck-bringing dips in the ocean at the stroke of midnight under the world’s most starry sky, passing by the traditional Nochebuana (New Year’s Eve) seafood – the Canaries have more than one delicacy to offer. 

leave your luggage at the Gran Hotel Bahia Del Duque or at the iconic Abama Ritz Carlton for an experience where tradition meets surprise. At the many Christmas Markets, the Mont Teide shows it’s fresh snows in the distance under a balmy 22°C in the middle of December. Even better is to watch the sunrise on Mont Teide in it’s white coat contrasting against the black lava – a breathtaking experience! This is Christmas celebrations at the Canaries. A touch less convoluted than Terry Gilliam’s “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote” filmed for 17 years on the archipelago… but just as iconic!
