Parador de Tejeda is in the countryside right in the middle of Gran Canaria, in one of the highest areas of the island. The best thing about it is the Tejeda Spa inside.
Parador de Tejeda. The spa with the most epic views in Gran Canaria
Parador de Cruz de Tejeda
If you do not know what Paradores are in Spain we will tell you they are very special hotels. You will generally find them in the most epic buildings or locations.
Parador de Tejeda is full of terraces with he most amazing views to the surrounding mountains and cliffs, declared UNESCO sites in 2019.
The restaurant in the Parador has, as the rest of the place, epic views of the surrounding.
The breakfast is about everything you could dream of; cold cuts, pastries, fruit and a la carta hot dishes of your choice.
For dinner they offer a selection of local specialties including goat and local boar, cheeses from the area, the famous papas con mojo and much more.
As every Parador they are a represention of the gastronomy of the region. We must confess the food from the Canaries is not our favorite but it is still special to try different specialties and meats.
The Tejeda Spa
What makes the place truly special is the spa. While not very big, it features different saunas and a water circuit.
And the feature of the Spa that will blow your mind is by all means the heated pool. The spa is indoors but you can go outside. The pool is hanging by a cliff giving you amazing panoramic views of the surroundings.
On a clear day you will see the mountains all the way to the ocean, might even get a glimpse of the neighbor island. On a cloudy day you might experience the sea of clouds, it happens when you are above the clouds and it is a truly special thing.
Please note you can access the Spa even if you are not a guest, you just pay for a day pass. They also offer a range of treatments, you will need to book them in advance.

The rooms at Parador de Tejeda
The rooms in all Paradores tend to be quite nice. The best feature of ours, apart from the extra comfortable bed, was the amazing terrace. It had the same views than the Spa and lying in bed with those views in the morning was a trill epic experience!
