Paradisus Gran Canaria 

Go on a stylish voyage of discovery

This inviting all-inclusive resort on one of Gran Canaria’s most appealing beaches is a welcome new arrival with all-round appeal

Backing on to sandy San Agustin beach on Gran Canaria’s south coast, this recent arrival is an all-inclusive that’s hard-wired with a sense of place. Its Destination Inclusive® plan incorporates visits to local attractions and in-house craft workshops, while the superb dining scene includes a Canarian specialty restaurant. Find tranquility in the adults-only spa which has a fabulous heat-and-hydrotherapy suite. Younger guests may have to be prized away from the kids’ club and teen camp, while the Nikté at Paradisus premium service makes life a breeze for families.

Why we love Paradisus Gran Canaria

  • There’s so much variety on the food front, from ceviche to Canarian cuisine with a twist and Italian dishes like Mama used to make

  • Children will love the inventive kids’ club and teen activities, while the grown-ups will appreciate adult-only spaces such as the spa

  • The Destination Inclusive® package covers not just meals and drinks but also cultural experiences such as museum visits and craft lessons (minimum stays apply)

  • Peaceful, sheltered San Agustin beach is on the doorstep, but lively Playa del Inglés is a 45-minute stroll along the coastal walkway
