• On some holidays you want to go out exploring, other holidays are about doing as little as possible. The Canary Island of Lanzarote lends itself perfectly to easy going sunseekers looking for option number two. For those with no plans to stray any further than the nearest beach or the hotel pool, Lanzarote is hard to beat. We’ve picked some of the best beach hotels on the island, where you’ll have the pleasure of staying by the sea. On with the relaxation!

    Rolling right onto the beach at the Vik Hotel San Antonio

    The beautiful beachfront location of the Vik Hotel San Antonio is just 15 minutes from the resort town of Puerto del Carmen. Soak up panoramic sea views, all from the comfort of your poolside sun lounger. Swaying palm trees line the shore, adding to that exquisite feeling of relaxation that all beach holidays worth their sand inspire.

    If a sudden urge to exercise takes hold and won’t go away, you don’t have to dash out to swim in the Atlantic if you don’t want to. Two outdoor pools – one freshwater, the other salt water – will serve you just as well. This hotel also offers rooms with balconies, for those who enjoy a sea view.

    Pampering at Sensimar Natura Palace

    You won’t be able to stop smiling when you reach the sizzling resort of Playa Blanca, one of the southernmost towns on Lanzarote. And at just 800 metres from Playa Flamingo beach, the Sensimar Natura Palace is the perfect place to stay. Of course, it just wouldn’t be a relaxing beach hotel without an outdoor pool or two, plus some tropical trees to provide all-important shade. Paradise.

    Come away from your holiday feeling like new, with some luxurious pampering at the hotel spa. Bask in the sauna, cleanse your skin with a mud treatment, or spend time in the Jacuzzi. One thing you can’t say is that the Sensimar Natura Palace isn’t good to you!

    Pure relaxation at Barcelo Teguise beach

    You don’t have to worry about the kids running out of your sight at this hotel in the ever-popular resort of Costa Teguise – it’s adults only. This leaves you with all the idling away time and pure relaxation you could want. The hotel is right next to Las Cucharas beach, and the resort’s stylish promenade.

    Booking a stay at this all-inclusive hotel means you won’t have to toil round the supermarkets or plan your meals. Opt for a deluxe or twin room for a balcony or terrace with a sea view. You can even choose a room equipped with a hot tub. 

    If you’re not looking to lift a finger on your holiday (except to apply some sun cream) there are a whole host of beach hotels in Lanzarote. Book a beach holiday with us; pack your favourite novel and load up your iPod with tunes; and then just sit back and relax poolside or on the island’s golden beaches. Sounds like bliss to us, too!
