There are many different types of hotel available, some that cater to the travelling businessman and some that cater to the tourist and whilst all types can range greatly in their standards of luxury, most are at the very least comfortable. In some of the popular destinations such as on the Spanish coast or on the Spanish islands, the hotels are large as they cater to mass tourism which is where travel agents book rooms in bulk and then fill them by chartering flights for their clients, making the vacations affordable and convenient. Although these hotels do offer luxury to different standards, as they are booked by groups they often lack some personal touches. Lanzarote, one of the Canary Islands is well-known for its mass tourism and so a hotel lanzarote is large and impersonal but that is something that is now changing.
Until now Lanzarote has been known only as a destination for mass tourism but it wants to change its image to one which is more chic and perhaps more eco-friendly, attracting the individual travellers as well as the large groups. In order to do this of course, it must first start by offering a different type of hotel, one which is perhaps more than just comfortable and is certainly more personal. This process has started as there is already one hotel which has recently opened which meets these new criteria. The hotel is the hotel La Isla y el Mar which is located in Puerto del Carmen, one of Lanzarote’s most popular destinations. Located just 10 miles from the airport, individual travellers can easily find their way there and as it is only 500m from a shopping center will be able to buy all they need without straying far. Of course whether travelling as a group or as an individual, you will want to go to the beach and fortunately there is a beach just 400m from the hotel.
Some travellers prefer a more relaxing get away, one far from the often over-crowded beaches and for that reason the hotel has its own pool which is located next to terrace that provides excellent views of the ocean. In order to cater to the needs of those that prefer relaxation the hotel also has a spa, one which can offer a variety of treatments including special treatments for couples. As well as the treatments for couples there are many other treatments some of which are of local origin whilst others are of international origin but all are administered with professionalism and a personal touch. Many travellers also like to enjoy different meals whilst vacationing and to cater for this the hotel offers a choice of two restaurants, one offering an a la carte menu which includes modern fusion cuisine whilst the other is a buffet style restaurant offering international treats. With this hotel as an example of what Lanzarote can now offer, individual travellers will now hopefully join the group travellers in sampling the delights the island has to offer.
