Situated along the cliffs of Teno in the North West of Tenerife, luxury resort, Meliá Hacienda del Conde is framed by Buenavista, an 18-hole golf course, designed by legendary Spanish golfer, Seve Ballesteros.
The idyllic adults-only retreat, surrounded by a protected nature reserve, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean is the ideal rural romantic getaway that boasts warm climates all year round.
Couples can enjoy quality time together over a game of golf, spa treatments, sunset dinners, a romantic coastal walk, or a cultural excursion to a nearby village to taste local wines and cheeses.
Designed to replicate a luxury hacienda, Meliá Hacienda del Conde’s traditional Canary Islands colonial decor has been recently refreshed. The resort’s 77 spacious and elegant rooms and 40 premium Level category suites have an authentic design with local terracota tiles, dark wood and chocolate accents offset against neutral tones. All rooms boast stunning rural vistas from the golf course to gardens and the Ocean.
The highly-regarded 18-hole Buenavista golf course, opened in 2003, was recently ranked by Golf World as the leading fairway in Tenerife and is the only links course on the island. Golfers play between the striking Teno cliffs and rocky Atlantic coast, meaning the course will play differently day to day due to the winds off the ocean. The par-72 course features a host of enticing elevated tee shots to wide fairways and true greens with clever undulations and hazard placements.
Course improvements have raised Buenavista’s standard even higher, making it one of the most attractive destinations in the Canary Islands. Upgraded fairways and landscaping have improved 12 bunkers, the driving range and practice facilities including two putting greens and a chipping area. A Club House offers golf club hire, refreshments and essential sportswear. Buenavista is an iconic course that suits all skill levels.
