Following a £21.4 million restoration project, the five-star Santa Catalina hotel has been restored.
Now under the management of the Barceló Hotel Group, which held the hotel’s soft launch in November, the hotel will be fully completed and reopened this month.
Dating back to 1890 and designed by British architect James MacLaren, the hotel has attracted the likes of Winston Churchill, Agatha Christie and Prince Charles as guests. It is something of a landmark in Palmas de Gran Canaria.
With 204 rooms, a top restaurant and a rooftop infinity pool, the hotel is walking distance of Las Canteras beach and the city’s main attractions. Santa Catalina also overlooks Doramas Park, with its tree-lined gardens, ponds, wildlife and waterfalls.
The hotel’s flagship restaurant is Poemas by the Padrón brothers, under the leadership of Juan Carlos and Jonathan Padrón – the only Michelin-starred chefs of Canarian origin.
Santa Catalina houses artwork from renowned muralists of the Canary Islands, – including Jesús Arencibia, Manuel Martín González and Santiago Santana – and dates back to the 19th century.
The hotel’s wellness centre includes a sauna, spa circuit, gym, thermal baths and treatment rooms offering Volcanic Stone Therapy and Ayurvedic Massage.
