Holistic Spa Heaven at the Lopesan Corallium Costa Meloneras Spa Hotel in Grand Canaria
Bananas, pineapples and goiaba along with the medicinal healing wonder plant aloe vera.From then on this little set of islands nestling only 100km off the coast of north Africa have been a favourite winter-sun get away for me. I was very lucky to be invited to visit and review the Lopesan Spa by the Spanish tourist board- ‘GRAND CANARIA WELLNESS< who promote all the holistic and wellness aspects of the island. The Canarian tourist board know that their islands are unique and want to keep them that way. There are designated protected national parks areas on all the island and nature co-exists with mankind in a harmonious fashion. As a traveller this is an important aspect of my needs, and I love the fact that interior of Grand Canaria is protected form tourist leaving their mark and eco- preservation is very important.
The Spa Hotel Lopesan Costa Meloneras is located in the south of the island in a coastal area called Meloneras. It sits next to the protected natural oasis ‘Dunas de Maspalomas’ (Sand dunes of Maspalomas) This is a dramatic yet tranquil landscape that is great for meditation, restoration, sun worshipping and water sports. Its also a favourite with naturists, so anything goes!
The Lopesan Hotel group is a Spanish owned company and has several themed hotels across the island, all of which are top notch. The themes are based on nature, be it African influence, Thalasso sea water, or the volcanic environment of the island. The architecture is built in harmony with its surroundings. Now I must admit I’m not a huge fan of huge chain-hotels and prefer more intimate rustic abodes but the atmosphere ar theLopesan Corrallium Costa Meloneras Spa Hotel is not what you expect. Its super friendly, un-pretentious and relaxing. It has a huge Spa area below including a modern gym, yoga, pilates platforms outside, indoor/outdoor pools and jacuzzies. So whether you prefer to be inside in the high-tech gym of outside meditating with nature its your choice.
