Bahia del Duque – Tenerife
The Bahia del Duque resort is located on the popular beach of Costa Adeje in Tenerife. This enormous resort is spread out in a series of neocolonial stylee buildings, with arches in colours of white and terra-cotta.
Striking to look at, the hotel features many eye-catching details such as the wrought iron and greenery in the grand lobby and across the sprawling grounds. What’s special about this resort is that it feels more like an old village rather than a hotel. The gardens and fountains were designed in the Spanish Baroque style, with a beautiful lagoon pool giving views over the sea.
It offers five outdoor pools, a fitness centre, and rooms that come with a private balcony. In addition, there are eight restaurants including Italian and Oriental options.
