Tenerife – The Largest of The Isles of the Fortunate

Historically known as the ‘Islands of the Fortunate’, the seven, central, habituated islands of the Canaries are world renowned justifiably a favourite hot spot for year-round sunshine for sun-seeking Northern Europeans. The Archipelago also has many smaller inlets and islets extending the number to over 200 rocks, barren caves and volcanically based land formations. Located just 62 miles from the Moroccan border of North West Africa, the islands make up an archipelago with the volcanic island of Tenerife making up the largest, in square miles and population, diversity and landscape.

The Ritz-Carlton Abama Resort oozes exclusivity and charm. A selective and luxurious resort situated on the sun-drenched West Coast of Tenerife. A perfect location, away from the less expensive southern side of the island, this slice and an exotic mixture of traditional Moorish and Spanish styling of the resort and its architecture.

The island is known for having a micro-climate of its own; the rich, unique volcanic soil giving endless reams of exquisite, wildlife teeming pine forests. The island of Tenerife is the greenest of the seven largest Canary Islands, and this is widely attributed to the fertile, volcanic soils; providing year round, fantastic growing conditions for rare flora and fauna, while the agricultural produce is a huge source of income.

Tenerife is renowned for its perpetual springtime climate, or the ‘Isla de la Eterna Primavera’, for two main reasons. The first is that Tenerife lies at the same latitude as the Sahara Desert, while with the active volcano, Mount Teide, being the highest point of Spain and the third largest Volcano in the world due to its height and base from the bottom of the sea.

A staggering 3,718m, or 12.198ft, many avid geologists, photographers and tourists from both Europe and around the globe come to visit this island to experience the incredible, surreal, otherworldly moonlike rolls of lava and huge craters below Teide’s sulphurous summit. Widely referred to as the 8th Wonder of the world, the trip by cable car to the top of Tenerife is an unmissable experience.

While tourism is a huge part of Tenerife’s economy, the north of the island attracts a multicultural and traditional Canarian culture, the capital of Santa Cruz with festivals and fiestas while the South has over the last 30 years seen a large purpose built, westernised resorts and man-made beaches take over. With 40% of the economy relying on tourism the industrial and agricultural businesses keep Tenerife the most prosperous canary island all year ‘round.

The rich, unique volcanic soil acts as a farming haven full of pine forests and fantastic growing conditions for rare flora and fauna, while the agricultural produce is a huge source of income. The flora has at least 100 species entirely endemic to Tenerife due to this magical, rare blend of volcanic microclimate, prevailing winds and geology.

For those interested in marine life, snorkelling and scuba diving, the Canary Islands’ seas and islets, rocks and coves surrounding Tenerife’s beaches are a treasure trove of Eastern Atlantic coastal marine life.

Boat trips are available from every corner of the island, locally to Ritz Resort where sightings of schools of dolphins and the pilot whales are common.  These incredible animals up close in glorious technicolour will be hard to forget. Through tourism and conservation are curious to follow boats of people around the coastlines.

Ridley’s Grey turtles, a considerable array of sharks and goby, rays and moray eel, plus the exotic and mysterious triggerfish and scorpionfish can be a wondrous venture for those with a sense of adventure and experienced enough to enjoy a dip in the ocean. The Arts and Conservation of the endemic wildlife, flowers, reptiles and birds are taken pretty seriously here in Tenerife.

Abama, Tenerife – Perpetual Primervera

Rarely dropping below fifteen degrees centigrade in winter months, Tenerife is perfect for those who wish to get away out of the summer season and is one of the most southern, austral parts of the EU.

The North of the island, with the cosmopolitan European cities of Puerto de la Cruz and Santa Cruz, sees far more precipitation and climate change along that one might associate with traditional seasons – due to its proximity of the Teide summit.

The South of Tenerife, while perhaps apt for tourism and developmental purposes, has a year ‘round, arid heat and humidity. All the island enjoys lots of sunshine in the summer months, and the mostly pine-dense, mountainous backdrop is one that might not be forgotten in a hurry on a day with high visibility.

Where is The Ritz Carlton Abama Located?

Ritz-Carlton Abama resides spectacularly on the sunshine-heavy, western coast of Tenerife, just a kilometre away from San Juan, a beach, small harbour and village settlement that sits affront of the Montana Tejina, a famous local landmark that heralds the beguiling beginnings and rises to Mount Teide.

With a total of 469 guestrooms and suites, the resort, although large, is tastefully spread over an in incredible hotel – the Citadel – and the exclusive Abama Suites and Villas clustered around our heavenly layout of pools, restaurants and bars in this incredibly luminous, luxurious and romantic resort.

The views are also unsurpassed, with all terraces either containing a floor to ceiling window view of the Atlantic Ocean, the Abama Golf course, and access to private pools. The resorts habitations are nestled amongst the tropical flora and offer a pristine and quiet surrounding.

The Tenerife North and South divide are slowly beginning to change. With more and more inhabitants staying and falling in love with the culture – different values and lifestyles – and for its endless beauty and wealth of wildlife, families from all walks of life have renationalised and joined the Canarian way of life for good. While Santa Crus and Puerto de la Cruz are traditionally less tourist focused, and Canarian in food, culture, religion and festivals. The more discerning travellers who wish to soak up the real Canarian culture are encouraged to spend a day exploring this Northern side of the island. Landscape and uniqueness – more and more discerning Europeans are trying to find a more secluded, impeccable and unspoilt landscape.
