Best Luxury Hotels in Gran Canaria, Spain

The island of Gran Canaria in Spain is one of the country’s most coveted holiday destinations. A jewel in the Canary Islands, holidaymakers flock in thousands to Gran Canaria to take advantage of its golden sands, blue skies, green mountains and all-round summer weather.

It’s also home to some of Spain’s most lavish accommodation options. Visiting Gran Canaria? Here’s Handpicked Hideaway’s list of Best Luxury Hotels in Gran Canaria, Spain.

With an iconic lighthouse in its backdrop, the Hotel Faro, a Lopesan Collection Hotel stands proudly overlooking the sea, close to the iconic Maspalomas Beach. Featuring coastal views, contemporary design, a gorgeous swimming pool, rooftop bar and world-class hospitality, Hotel Faro is no doubt one of Gran Canaria’s most luxurious hotels.

If you’re looking for a premium stay in a historic setting, then look no further than the Suites 1478. Treat yourself to a rooftop terrace with magnificent views of Gran Canaria’s finest religious buildings. Suites 1478 is situated in the classic district of Vegueta, and is close to many major attractions on the island.

Fan of golf? The Salobre Hotel Resort & Serenity is renowned for its spacious 18-hole Salobre Gold Course. Not only that, but the property is home to 7 swimming pools (yes, you read that right, 7 swimming pools)! Located in a private mountain oasis, guests are set to be in awe of the panoramic views and natural atmosphere. This property has a special focus on wellness, where guests can join in on activities such as yoga, basketball and cycling.

International chain Radisson Blu has some of the world’s most prestigious resorts around the world, and its Gran Canaria iteration fits the bill. Featuring its own saltwater pool and 2 children’s pool, the Radisson Blu Resort Gran Canaria is located within walking distance to a number of the island’s best beaches.

Guests will be pleased to know that the property features a poolside bar, hot tub, sauna, Turkish bath and other wellness facilities. The on-site restaurant features a rotating buffet of different culinary experiences.

Another property in the luxury Lopesan collection, the Lopesan Costa Meloneras, Resort & Spa is famous for its all-inclusive facilities. Boasting a spa, casino and heated lagoon-style swimming pools amongst luscious green gardens, this resort provides the perfect oasis from the Gran Canaria heat. I especially love the blend of traditional and modern interior design elements at this property.

The Costa Meloneras Resort’s on-site restaurant, Ambassador, is also well-known for its quality nouvelle cuisine.

The distinguishing factor that sets the H10 Playa Meloneras Palace is its unique interior design. Inspired by the iconic Antoni Gaudi, who is responsible for some of the country’s most recognisable landmarks, this resort is an art-lover’s dream. Colourful, bright and luxurious, the H10 Playa Meloneras Palace also offers a beachfront location, spacious swimming pools, bars and grand coastal views.

This hotel has some of the most elegant design elements I’ve ever seen in Spain. I particularly adore the majestic rooftop pool, and the property’s spacious rooms – which look like they’ve come from a different era. The Santa Catalina, a Royal Hideaway Hotel is the perfect getaway for those who want a touch of class to their luxury hotel stays in Gran Canaria.

Yet another Radisson Blu entry on our list, the Radisson Blu Resort & Spa, Gran Canaria Mogan is differentiated from the Radisson Blu Gran Canaria Resort due to its unique location in the popular holiday town of Mogan. Puerto de Mogan is my personal favourite area of Gran Canaria due to its colourful flowers, quaint townhouses and dramatic scenery – rendering this hotel an impeccable stay for those who want to experience the same.

This hotel features 2 swimming pools with a hot tub, as well as a pool just for children. Guests of the Radisson Blu Resort & Spa, Gran Canaria Mogan are also able to enjoy a rock climbing tower, tennis court, volleyball court and running track.

The Resort Cordial Santa Agueda & Perchel Beach Club is an intimate resort located near the beach district of Playa Santa Agueda. What separates this property from the other big resorts on this list is that it focuses on giving a more boutique, intimate experience to guests. Featuring a more villa or ‘holiday home’ concept, guests can enjoy their own private pool, and spacious villas, with some offering up to 3-bedrooms.

A colourful and vibrant property with a playful energy, the Bohemia Suites & Spa has a certain youthful flavour to it that will delight guests looking for a stay full of surprises. Like all the other properties on this list, the Bohemia Suites feature grand coastal views, as well as a rooftop cocktail bar and gorgeous, stylish rooms with olive-wood furnishings.

The property features 1 freshwater outdoor pool, 1 saltwater outdoor pool and 2 outdoor Jacuzzis, as well as an indoor pool, sauna and steam sauna.
