The Ritz-Carlton, Abama

Lush vegetation flourishes throughout our majestic, Moorish-inspired hotel grounds


Nestled on Tenerife’s picturesque south-western shore, Guia de Isora is one of the island’s best-kept secrets: an unspoiled corner of coastline enjoying an average year-round temperature of 23ºC, where lush tropical flora mingles with a dramatic volcanic landscape. This is the setting for The Ritz–Carlton, Abama, a magical citadel of interconnected Moorish buildings melding modernist architecture with North African traditions and ancient Chinese principles, nestled in a 400 acre private estate edged by banana plantations.Abama is a communion between architecture and the natural environment, an oasis of tranquility and seclusion, a retreat for the body and the mind, where sea, land and tropical vegetation mingle seamlessly with architectural forms. Its ingenious layout, guided by the aesthetic system of Feng Shui, means that you will find spaces of calm and seclusion in even the busiest parts of the hotel, and secret gardens, delightful pools and breathtaking vistas around every corner.
