Luxury in Lanzarote with the Melia Salinas Hotel

Melia Salinas Hotel LanzaroteI love to travel, and I love to be surprise by destinations I never thought I would go to.  So with a week to spare in October, and a desire for the sun without travelling to far flung places I headed to Lanzarote and the rather splendid Melia Salinas Hotel in Costa Teguise on the East of the Island with thanks to Sovereign Travel.Hotel Meliá Salinas reception Lanzarote

Hotel Meliá Salinas LanzaroteThe hotel is a beautiful and tranquil place full of lush vegetation and light.  The main pool area is large and the majority of the rooms look on to it and the public beach.  Hotel Meliá Salinas pool LanzaroteHotel Meliá Salinas pool LanzaroteHowever there is also a VIP area called THE LEVEL.  Here there is a second pool area that is surrounded by pool side villas, and it has its own mini bar.  Through the day you can drink and eat until your heart and belly is full as in the level everything is on the house (although cocktails are extra).Callum Watt Maketh the ManCallum Watt and Anabel KutayWe were lucky enough to have one of the private poolside villas for our stay, and we couldnt have been more happy with it.  Callum Watt Maketh The ManOn entry to our own villa you walk across a floating bridge and Japanese garden, then it opens up onto your own terrace with pool bali bed and outdoor shower.  Everything I could have ever wanted!Hotel Meliá Salinas Villa Lanzarote

However my top tip is to go for the local food and to not mix and match.  If you do this, you are guaranteed to eat the best meals that night and not have food envy with your partner who is digging into some fresh prawns.

If looking to book a holiday to Lanzarote, I would really recommend that you stay at this hotel but just make sure and upgrade to The Level for that extra VIP feeling that you deserve when on holiday. If you can upgrade even further by opting for a Villa and live that rock star holiday vibes.  Rock on my friends!
