Luxury Tenerife

Mark's verdict:

The Ritz-Carlton, Abama has a faithful family following, and it’s not hard to see why. Luxury accommodation, spa, Michelin-starred restaurant and 18-hole golf course aside, it takes childcare and kids’ facilities to new heights with everything from family pools and sports academies to kids’ clubs, free children’s dinners and cinema nights on the beach.

Luxury Worldwide Collection says

Perched on the unspoilt western coast of Tenerife is a five-star deluxe palace that is a cut above the rest. The Ritz-Carlton, Abama is our most popular resort amongst families, year-round.

  • free kids club
  • Michelin stars
  • nanny service

There’s a gorgeous sandy beach with imported white sand plus several swimming pools (heated in winter) including a family pool.

The rooms, family suites and villas are chic and luxurious, featuring large balconies, beautiful marble bathrooms and stunning views of the ocean, pools or golf course.

It is the special touches that really set this hotel apart. There are unlimited sweet treats and drinks available in reception for children during the day, free dinner for children joining their parents in La Pampa/Verona restaurant and enchanting children’s cinema nights on the beach (seasonal).

The childcare is exceptional too, not least in the shape of the amazing free Abami Kids’ Club. It’s the largest kids club in Europe with zones from science to astronomy, crafts to an outdoor vegetable garden. It’s for ages four up to 12 years (open until midnight). We can arrange a local nanny to look after babies and children of all ages.

There is also a tennis and golf academy with tuition for adults and children so you can hone your technique.

Whilst the kids are kept entertained, parents can enjoy the resort’s many facilities. Abama has its own Michelin-starred ‘M.B.’ restaurant – just one of the ten great eateries on offer – as well as an impressive 18-hole championship golf course and 2,500m² Out of Africa themed spa and wellness centre.

We pride ourselves on offering first hand, honest advice together with competitive rates and exclusive offers.
