A Slice of Corralejo Luxury

Gran Hotel Atlantis Bahía Real 5*

Ahh let’s go back to when the skies were sunny, I had that tan (a result of two weeks in Aus and more days in Fuerteventura) and it seemed totally normal to wear a satin dress to amble around a swimming pool. So casj. Back in the real world, I’m scoffing my microwaved lunch at my desk but back at the Gran Hotel Atlantis Bahía Real in Corralejo in the Canary Islands, it was all sizzling king prawns and squid ink croquettes.

I was lucky enough to visit the beautiful Atlantis Bahía Real 5 star hotel on my Thomas Cook Airlines trip and although I didn’t actually stay there the night, a meal and a whole day in that stunning courtyard was all I needed to top up my luxe quota for month. I’m not normally a 5* kinda gal but I was hardly going to pass up on a place that had just been awarded Condé Nast Johansens award for the Best European Waterside Hotel now was I?!

Coco Beach Lounge

After a half hour walk along the beach from the centre of Corralejo, Sophie and I were delighted to simply veer off along the walkway straight up to the hotels’ Coco Beach Lounge restaurant perched over the turquoise sea. My favourite thing on the menu had to be the baby potatoes. I loved hearing that the chefs had dunked their pot in the sea and cooked the spuds in the water, meaning once cooked, they came with their own coating of salt. Dipped into the colourful secret sauces, they were better than popcorn. Cocktails in hands and gazing out to the islands of Lobos and Lanzarote, this was basically bliss.

From lunch we skipped into the hotel, grabbed a towel and settled down by the pool where you’re wonderfully secluded even though the courtyard is public. If you can pull yourself away, go exploring the hotel. The balconies are quiet and dreamy and that view from above looking down is the one. Apart from the obvious indulgent benefits to chilling out here, I love that the Gran Hotel Atlantis Bahía Real is the only hotel on the island of Fuerteventura to hold a Biosphere accreditation promoted by UNESCO, meaning that it ticks the boxes of care and sustainability. *Clapping hands emoji*
