In 1977, Meliá Salinas opened as Lanzarote's first five-star hotel. It's since become the only five-star Gran Lujo property on the island. This is the ultimate in luxury holiday accommodation. Recognised for adding to Lanzarote's artistic and cultural heritage, it fits into architect, artist and guardian of the island César Manrique's "art into nature, nature into art" philosophy. Green inside and out, it's the perfect example of the Canary Islands' paradise on earth. As an adults-only retreat, it's Costa Teguise at its most exclusive. It was the first hotel of a resort named after the old capital of Lanzarote, Teguise, 10 minutes inland. Created as a template for tourism in the island, it's confident and sophisticated, but understated too.
