Ritz Carlton Abama, Tenerife

For a superb break all-year-round, we highly recommend the superb Ritz Carlton Abama on the island of Tenerife.

The Ritz Carlton Abama is a 160 hectare ‘finca’ (private estate) with its own private beach, tucked away in Guía de Isora, a tranquil and little known area of the island of Tenerife.

Surrounded by volcanic landscapes, exuberant vegetation with over 300 varieties of plants, trees and palm trees, the Ritz Carlton Abama enjoys breathtaking panoramic views over the Atlantic Ocean and the Island of La Gomera. Spectacularly located on the South West Coast of Tenerife on the smooth slopes of the Teide, the highest peak in Spain, the resort is set in breathtaking landscape that runs all the way down to the ocean.

Tenerife is known throughout the world as the Island of Eternal Spring. In its privileged location, the Ritz Carlton Abama enjoys more hours of sunshine than any other part of Spain, with an average annual temperature of 23º C. The largest of the seven islands that make up the Canary Island archipelago, Tenerife is just over 300 km from the African coast, and about 1,300 km from the Spanish Mainland.

Designed by the renowned architect Melvin Villarroel, The Ritz Carlton Abama is unique: a magic citadel of interconnected Moorish buildings whose burnt terracotta colours seem to shift and change with every hour of the day. Its ingenious layout, guided by the aesthetic system of Feng Shui, means that you will find spaces of calm and seclusion even in the busiest parts of the hotel, and secret gardens, delightful pools and breathtaking vistas around every corner. No matter how long you stay, there’s always more to explore.

The Ritz Carlton Abama’s ethnic design and African influences provide an exceptional location from which guests can relax and discover the beauty of Tenerife. You can enjoy:

  • whirlpool and water facilities at the spa and a complete Fitness Centre.
  • ten dining options and three bars
  • Dave Thomas-designed golf course
  • Sánchez-Casal Tennis Academy
  • exclusive beach accessed by a funicular
  • seven swimming pools + two natural pools
  • 24 hour check-in and porter service
  • 24 hour in-room dining

The Abama’s 469 guest rooms and suites are divided between the Complex (321)and exclusive Villas (148), most of which enjoy magnificent views over the Atlantic, golf course and beautiful gardens.

The Complex at the hotel combines ethnic architecture with a Moorish feel in almost all of its many guest rooms and suites.

The villas are hidden among the Abama’s botanic gardens and are oases of calm designed for guests and families in search of ultimate escape. As well as enjoying all the amenities of the citadel rooms, each row of villas has pool access, wonderful ocean views from its top floor rooms, a high, pitched ceiling with exposed beams and a four-poster bed. Full room service and transport to any other part of the complex are available at your request.

In addition, the Ritz Carlton Abama also offers Tagor’ Villas, a secluded, tranquil row of luxury rooms and suites in villas reserved solely for adults, away from main area. Situated in the lush tropical flower garden, each row of villas has pool access. Tagor´ Villas guests can take advantage of a range of exclusive added benefits making them perfect for honeymoons, couples, or those searching for the ultimate pampering, relaxation and escape.

Several of our team have enjoyed fantastic stays at the Ritz Carlton Abama and we highly recommend as an all-year-round destination. Contact us for more information and let us help you start planning your next break.

We had a fantastic time in Sicily. Thank you for your suggestion - so much more than we expected, lots of interesting places to visit and the hotels were excellent.


We felt as though we were away for ever and had not 1 but 3 holidays!

The Kingston family

The list of superlatives about the holiday is endless...You can be assured that we will be in contact with Ultimate Destinations in the near future to discuss our next “tailor made” requirements.

Tony and Barbara

We had a terrific time. Everything worked like clockwork; your organisation was wonderful.
Thank you for everything you did to make this holiday trouble free. We'll be back to see you for our next holiday!


Debbie - thanks for arranging our return boarding passes. Great service.


Our holiday in the USA was "awesome" as they say. All the hotels you provided were excellent. Thank you for helping us make it such a great experience...and for the fantastic memories.

Mr and Mrs H

We were planning a special trip to the Maldives and we chose Diamonds Thudufushi in the South Ari Atoll. Andy helped make all the arrangements including sourcing seats on direct BA flights at a competitive price. The holiday was wonderful and very relaxing. Would definitely recommend this beautiful island.

Liz Patel

Thank you for booking such a great holiday - we had the best time we didn't want to come home! Orlando was absolutely fantastic, we loved it there - and we really liked Tampa too shopping there was great!! Was honestly the best holiday we've had! I'll have to start thinking soon where's next!


Thank you for organising our ANZCRO trip, it was fantastic. All the connections and hotels were spot on. Will recommend you to anyone thinking of doing any long haul trips.


Thank you for organising our trip to the States. We had a fantastic time everywhere we went. Hotels were well chosen and were very clean and comfortable with just the right amount of luxury for two night stays. Transport links all worked smoothly and having Cape Cod as our final stay was perfect with wonderful accommodation and beautiful beaches. Many thanks for your guidance!


We had the most fabulous time imaginable on our trip to India and would certainly go back.... we were lucky to come to you to arrange this trip.

The Jopling Family

I just wanted to thank you for your excellent service arranging our recent trip to Cyprus, no problems with the car park or flight. Also thanks for your prompt assistance with our queries while we were there. If you keep 'holding our hands' like this you'll never get rid of us!


Thanks for your advice on the Ghazala Gardens in Sharm El Sheik which proved to be a great place to stay and in a prime location. We had a really fantastic time and everything ran very smoothly, flights on time, transfers great, hotel very good.

The Deakin Family

I cannot recommend Buffalo Tours highly enough. Many thanks, Andy, as ever, for organising our trip to Vietnam and Cambodia. It was certainly an adventure and a half!

Ralph and Alison

Thank you for arranging our trip to Athens. Hotel Hemes in Athens was a short walk away from everything we needed.


We had a great time in Kefalonia. The whole trip was very smooth and well organised by Ionian, and we would definitely use them again if going to that part of the world. We were also lucky with the weather, and even the hire car, as it appeared most of those who booked ahead of us had taken all the small cars leaving us with something slightly roomier and more powerful.


Living in Chorleywood, it gave us peace of mind to be able to speak directly to someone knowledgeable and book with a local Agent.
