The first lighthouse hotel in the Canary Islands has opened on the delightful island of La Palma created by Berlin-based Floatel GmbH, a hospitality company specialising in lighthouse accommodation.
Following three years of renovations, the 152-year-old lighthouse Faro Cumplida has opened its doors welcoming guests seeking a magical and unique stay experience.
Faro Cumplida sits on the most northerly aspect of La Palma offering undisturbed views of the Atlantic Ocean. The lighthouse which is still in nautical use, offers four luxury rooms and suites, accommodating up to eight guests in the light housekeeper’s house, located directly below the watchtower.
Facilities include four rooms, four bathrooms, a roof terrace, a dramatic infinity pool, a 36m high watchtower and Canary Islands garden. The two suites named Farero Suite and La Palma and Atlantic Suite sleep four and two people respectively and both offer their own private terrace with sweeping unobstructed Atlantic views.
There’s a traditional patio with a pergola made of local Tea Wood leading up to the lighthouse entrance and the 158 steps that wind up to the top of the tower, where guests can enjoy dramatic views of the Atlantic Ocean, the surrounding banana plantations and the lush La Palma mountains. The walk up will be rewarded with a drink at the Sky High Mini Bar.
Faro Punta Cumplida is the only lighthouse in the Canary Islands which offers accommodation and is still in nautical use.
