Those seeking a holiday home that will keep the whole family entertained every month of the year should look at Tenerife’s Abama Luxury Residences. Overlooking the Atlantic and La Gomera Island on the west coast of the island, apartments, luxury villas and Abama Custom Villa Plots are available for purchase within the 160-hectare estate designed by Chilean/Bolivian architect Melvin Villaroel. Director of Marketing Elodie Casola comments: “We have sold to a variety of nationalities including British, Belgian, Russian, Norwegian, Finnish, German, Swiss and Austrian.”
Perfect for golf fanatics, sun worshippers, tennis enthusiasts, yoga devotees and gourmet lovers, properties range from apartments to custom-designed villas offering a range of amenities for every age and taste. Rare to the region is the resort’s golden sand beach, which is the perfect place for a sundowner to remember after a trip to the resort’s boutiques featuring brands including Burberry, Miu Miu, D&G, Gucci, Piaget, Omega and Porsche accessories.
The 18 hole golf course is a 72-par, 18-hole course designed by former Ryder Cup Player Dave Thomas. One of only nine courses on the island, it is critically acclaimed both for its beauty and the technical challenges that it presents, and has hosted a number of professional engagements since it opened in 2005.
For a more intense sporting experience, residents should book into the Sánchez Casal Tennis Academy set up by the professional tennis duo to which the academy owes its name. Lessons can be taken on one of the resort’s seven tennis courts or four paddle courts and will provide tutees with professional training whatever their ability. Thanks to the high calibre of the facilities, both ATP and ITF Tour players have played for 600 spectators in the Abama centre court grandstand.
Those seeking more holistic activities should be sure to set aside a few hours to enjoy the Meditation and Flotation Rooms in the three storey Ritz-Carlton, Abama spa which also offers a Garden Spa relaxation area and eleven treatment rooms. After a day of activity, owners are tempted by 10 different restaurants offering everything from traditional tapas to Michelin starred Japanese cuisine.
At the end of the day, residents can retire to their homes, all of which have been expertly designed by a range of local Spanish architects and boast unique features and styles. Residents can choose between one- two- and three-bedroom apartments, detached villas, villa plots or custom-built villas. All have 24-hour security and are constructed with the highest quality materials and attention to detail.
