Princesa Yaiza Resort and refurbished Hotel Fariones ready to welcome back guests for a luxury holiday in Lanzarote
The popular Canary Island of Lanzarote is ready to welcome back UK holidaymakers at two of the destination’s luxury hotels once Covid travel restrictions allow.
The luxury five-star Hotel Fariones, in Puerto del Carmen , will re-open on 1 September 2020 after a significant refurbishment. The improvements were carried out by the privately-owned PY Hotels & Resorts family that also owns the Princesa Yaiza resort in Playa Blanca which is already welcoming back tourists.
Hotel Fariones is in a beautiful beachfront location surrounded by palm trees with direct access to an idyllic sandy cove and the extensive Playa Grande beach. There is an impressive infinity pool with two heated Jacuzzis, a rooftop pool and terrace, and multiple restaurants and bars.
Featuring 213 contemporary rooms, guests can choose from a range of categories, all with outdoor terraces and many with panoramic views over the Atlantic Ocean towards Fuerteventura and The Isla de Lobos.
The main à la carte restaurant, Restaurant Atlantico, will serve fresh local fish and shellfish with traditional Canarian influences, and a snack bar will serve light lunches on an outdoor terrace overlooking the ocean. A buffet restaurant is on the menu in the future, along with Kaori restaurant specialising in Asian Haute Cuisine.
Four chic bars will be spread out across the hotel’s grounds including a beach bar and lobby bar. Future plans also include rooftop bar with La Cueva de Doña, an elegant club set in a cave carved from rocks on the beach.
Those looking to keep fit can head to Hotel Fariones’ sports centre offering group activities, fitness classes, personal trainers, a gym and tennis courts. Guests also have access to the 18-hole Lanzarote Golf Course, located five minutes from the hotel.
To celebrate the grand opening, Hotel Fariones is offering a 15% discount on stays for September and October, when booked before 31 August. Rates for a double room with sea view with the 15% discount applied start from €244.50 (£218 approx.) per night including breakfast, based on two people sharing.

Princesa Yaiza Suite Hotel Resort in Playa Blanca reopened for the 2020 season on 20 July. It offers everything guests need for a luxury short-haul break including spacious rooms and suites all with private terraces, a pristine sandy beach, year-round sunshine, six outdoor pools and a multitude of outdoor activities.
There are eight restaurants, including a kids restaurant, to choose from, all specialising in different cuisines. The sea-facing Isla de Lobos restaurant is a dining experience to remember, with its Slow Food philosophy promoting the preservation of traditional and regional cuisine on the island.
The restaurant also offers a Kilometro Zero experience, taking guests to a private, high-welfare Finca de Uga farm that supplies the hotel, followed by a gourmet dinner with traditional recipes made from the farm’s produce.
Guests can spend as much time outdoors as they wish with six outdoor pools, two outdoor Jacuzzis and direct access to the sandy Playa Dorada beach just across the coastal promenade.
The hotel offers a range of diving packages for guests looking to explore Europe’s first underwater museum, just a five-minute drive from the hotel, including a beginner’s PADI course. The spectacular volcanic landscape of Timanfaya National Park is only a short 20-minute drive away where guests can marvel at its otherworldly beauty and visit the Montañas del Fuego to witness dishes cooked from the heat of the volcano.
Rates for a Basic Superior Room at Princesa Yaiza start from £169 per night including breakfast buffet, based on two people sharing. For further details or to book an escape, visit www.princesayaiza.com or call the hotel on 0034 928 519 300.
