Hotel Baobab Suites Costa Adeje
... so many choices that will be hard to choose one suite only

The Hotel Baobab Suites is so special and unique that comparing it with another type of accommodation to help you to absorb it is really very hard. It would fall into the category of ‘apart hotels’ although there aren’t many examples that offer the level of luxury that the hotel Baobab Suites offers.

What is for certain is that those who try it are usually convinced and fall in love. So much so that it opened in October 2013 and the number of repeat guests grows considerably every year.

The guest can ask for the same apartment where they have stayed previously, but it isn’t always easy to achieve as it will depend on occupation, allocation, or if the owner (we will explain in the next section) has requested the apartment.

Origin and general features

The architectural design of the hotel Baobab Suites stands out among others in the area, as it strays from convention and is much more modern and current. In this innovative way, all of the selling points of the hotel (sense care, activate, restaurants, etc.) are open to the general public.

Tenerife Travel Secret

When the owner of the hotel (who is Belgian) goes on holiday he always likes to have a certain level of contact with the residents, and therefore his philosophy and that of the hotel is to have contact with both local things and the locals.

Fachada principal del Baobab Suites

The general concept is that there is great flexibility, and it is from there that the slogan ‘Your holiday, your way, our world’ comes. It could be summarised in one word as freedom. If you want to have more or less contact with the Baobab organisation, there are no commitments.

If you are on holiday, you don’t have to worry about strict schedules for breakfast, lunch or dinner. You also have the advantage of being able to eat anything from the fridge or try things without a problem, and without having to get dressed up J.

Baobab Suites al ser apartamentos tienen muchas ventajas

Tenerife Travel Secret

Just to clarify the concept of the hotel Baobab Suites a bit more, it is a joint-ownership hotel. Each suite has an owner and a usage contract.

At the hotel Baobab Suites they try to give the guest a personalised experience. Therefore if the client wants to fish, hunt rabbits, hire a car, go on an excursion, get a transfer, see whales, etc. they provide this service in the most exclusive way possible from reception with the Experience Centre.

Communal areas and general services at the hotel Baobab Suites

Just opposite the reception at the entrance to the hotel, there is an area with beach sand. This type of decoration is connected to the decoration which you’ll find at the hotel Baobab Suites in Costa Adeje. In the reception area they often have a local artist’s work on show in many different forms (photography, sculpture, painting, etc.) as they also try to support local art.

Tenerife Travel Secret

For some years, the hotel Baobab Suites was the sponsor of the Ten Diez Movement – International Art Event, and finally in 2015 they hosted the event.

Baobab Suites apoya mucho el arte local

In general, the communal areas (swimming pools and restaurants) are usually fairly empty because, being such luxurious apartments often with their own pools, the guests have a very spacious and exclusive relaxation area of their own (living room, terrace, etc.). For that reason the extra communal space is often unnecessary, unless you want to socialise J

Baobab Suites realmente es un alojamiento fuera de lo común en Costa Adeje

There are two communal swimming pools and the main one has some spectacular views. There is also a children’s pool (baby splash pool). The communal gardens are just to embellish the view, as you cannot enter them.

Restaurante Sucás opens every day except Sundays from 7pm to 11pm. Lucas Maes is a Belgian-Canary Islander who was born in Tenerife, grew up in Belgium and is now chef at the restaurant. The Restaurante Sucás is located at the entrance to the hotel Baobab Suites and therefore can welcome both guests from the suites and people from outside.

Tenerife Travel Secret

Initially Lucas Maes only had one restaurant in Tenerife in La Orotava (the north of the island), which many tourists (especially Belgians) visited by taxi from the south. But luckily for lovers of his cooking he now also has a restaurant in Costa Adeje.

El restaurante Sucás se encuentra en la entrada de Baobab Suites y por ello puede recibir huéspedes de las suites como personas ajenas al mismo

Tenerife Travel Secret

One particular detail is that in the kitchen area of the restaurant there is a large table which can be occupied by diners (you are advised to book in advance), to enjoy the food while watching the chefs work.

Within the hotel Baobab Suites you will find the Restaurante BB (Lucas Maes will soon train, guide and support the staff at Restaurante BB from a distance, offering some of his recipes) which serves lunches and dinners until 10:30pm. It also serves people who are using the swimming pool. Like the Restaurante Sucás it is open to anyone, not just guests staying at the hotel Baobab Suites in Costa Adeje.

Igual que el restaurante Sucás, está abierto a cualquier persona, no necesariamente hay que ser huésped del Baobab Suites.

Tenerife Travel Secret

To avoid confusion, opposite the Restaurante BB terrace there is a decorative sheet of water, not a swimming pool.

The hotel Baobab Suites Costa Adeje offers the unique option of accommodation with breakfast, as there is a wide gastronomic offering and you can eat at BB, Sucás, Fuel (in the Activate Sport Club), via room service or by cooking in your apartment. It means great flexibility which helps you not worry about timings. For breakfast there are two options:

Fuel es el bar restaurante del Activate Sport Club
  • The more conventional way at the buffet area in the lower part of the building which was widened in October 2015.
Bite es el restaurante de Baobab Suites perfecto para tomar el desayuno

Tenerife Travel Secret

The volcanic rocks which can be seen in the underground breakfast area are originals from the ground where the hotel Baobab Suites was built.

  • In your suite. When you check in they will give you a form with a list of products and each day you can choose whether to have breakfast at the buffet or in your room, where they will leave you a box with everything you need to prepare a complete breakfast.

Tenerife Travel Secret

It is not necessary to wake up (or get out of bed) to receive the box of products for breakfast. There have been occasions when the staff have brought the box, left it and not seen the guest. Therefore when you wake up you will be able to cook or prepare breakfast calmly with the spectacular views which the suites have.

Xispa Gastro Bar is perfect for small events or if they need more space for the restaurant.

SensCare is the beauty and health institute at the hotel. They offer beauty treatments, massages, pedicures, etc. On the other hand, the hairdressing service works with many natural products.

Guests can ask for massages or treatments to be done in their suites, as they are so spacious and have such big balconies that they can accommodate them.

Los parasoles son especialmente particulares ya que se quedan plegados como dos barras laterales.

The suites at the Hotel Baobab Suites

There are 125 suites, which fall into 20 categories but 4 main ones: 1, 2 or 3 bedroom or deluxe. They also come without or without a pool, with or without a Jacuzzi, and both. The luxury ones can be an attic with 4 bedrooms and a Jacuzzi. The Loft (there is only one), which is at the highest point in the complex, has a very spacious bedroom and spectacular 180 degree views of the sea, the mountains, the sunrise and the sunset, among other things. You can’t say you don’t have choices, right? As Kim rightly pointed out, it’s difficult to choose J

There are lots of suites which have a swimming pool and these are particularly popular with families as they also have the beach included. Parents can relax on their deck chairs while their children play calmly and safely within sight.

Baobab Suites y sus más de 50 piscinas individuales es un sueño hecho realidad en Tenerife

Tenerife Travel Secret

There are 54 suites with a pool, so the communal areas are usually quite empty. If you have your own pool it is normal for you to take advantage of this exclusive detail and enjoy it without having to share it with anyone else.

There are 10 blocks of suites: Las Aguas, Villa, Montemar, Mirador, Terra, Acamai, Alterra, Ópera, Sanz and Villaqua.

The standard suite has one bedroom, no swimming pool or Jacuzzi, a 30m2 balcony, a living room, a kitchen (with induction hob, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and everything you need including utensils), a bathroom with shower and bath, and wide views from the balcony. They are all laid out in the same way but are in different locations. In our case, this was the last one we visited and it was small without a pool, but it had a terrace with some particularly spectacular views.

Hasta los apartamentos pequeños son espaciosos

Tenerife Travel Secret

Each suite has its own particular furniture, but they all follow the same lines in terms of design (just the colours vary). Each owner was given freedom to furnish it, but within some general guidelines.

Las suites han sido decoradas siguiendo una misma línea de estilo, aunque se le ha dado ciertas libertades a los propietarios para darles su toque personal

There are only two small studios (with kitchenette) which are equipped to accommodate people with reduced mobility, with a shared pool and easy access for disabled people.

On the second floor which we visited, the owners had joined two apartments together in order to increase the number of bedrooms. This is one of the reasons why there are so many different categories.

Tenerife Travel Secret

In general you will not see such extensive descriptions as we are providing. That is because they try to create a surprise effect, so in that sense we are going to keep a small secret for you to discover when you arrive at your suite J

En algunos casos las habitaciones tienen el baño integrado

We visited a penthouse in Ópera and we can summarise it in two words: spectacularly gigantic J Of course for a house it might be considered normal, but you have to remember we are talking about holiday accommodation where you can stay for as little as a night … It obviously fits into the luxury category.

It has three bedrooms with lots of built-in wardrobes and very minimalist decoration. The sensation for the guest is that they are in their own home. From the bedroom with ensuite bathroom you can go straight out onto the terrace, where there are views of La Gomera and of the building’s whole surroundings. On the terrace there is a large table for eight diners (in the area from where you can get up onto the roof) and an awning which you can open if you want to have lunch or dinner in the shade.

Las líneas decorativas son muy simples, pero elegantes
Desde el baño del Penthouse se tiene acceso directo a la terraza

When decorating the exteriors of the suites they have supported national production (the outdoor furniture is from Gandía Blasco). In general they tried to work with Spanish brands when buying materials and furniture.

Vistas desde una terraza

There are two deluxe attics (one with three bedrooms and the other with four). You need a specific key to be able to access the level where they are (from both the lift and the corridor). They have a Jacuzzi, rooftop terrace and 360 degree views.

Baobab Suites and children

Saplings Kids’ Club is enormous and its décor is very modern and functional with beautiful tall baobabs. The club is intended for children aged 4 and up, although logically younger ones could be there with adult supervision. In high season they have a schedule of activities and free time for children, and with parental permission they even take them to Activate Sports Club.

There is a relaxation area for children, a nappy changing room and bathrooms adapted to their size. From October 2015 they added the option for children to be able to dine at the Kids’ Club, watch films and play on some nights of the week so that their parents can have a romantic dinner without their children nearby.

Saplings tiene un amplísimo número de actividades y zonas de recreo infantil

Getting there

It is not far from the beach, but if you want to go there is public transport which will take you there. To get to the hotel Baobab Suites Costa Adeje from the airport you should follow the south motorway towards Los Cristianos and continue until La Caleta de Adeje (exit 78). Then you just have to follow the signs and at the first roundabout you come across you will see it on your right, with its characteristic white appearance.

Final comments from the authors about Baobab Suites

As you will have observed from the photos and descriptions, the hotel Baobab Suites Costa Adeje is simply spectacular, one of the best Tenerife luxury hotels. Expectations and reality are very close, but very real. A true haven of peace and tranquillity which adapts for all types of guest: families with small children, guests with a sporty profile (including professionals) and couples wanting space, comfort and luxury as well as freedom.

Las piscinas y playas individuales son simplemente ideales
Saplings Kid´s Club es un sueño hecho realidad para cualquier niño

From outside the hotel Baobab Suites Costa Adeje seems big, but not as big as it actually is. At Tenerife Travel Secrets what we liked the most was the option of having your own swimming pool and a sort of private beach … Exclusive, luxury holidays - who gives you more than that?

La oferta gastronómica es muy variada en Baobab Suites

Only one doubt and one secret remain … why Baobab?? Maybe because in maturity the baobab hollows out and the inner part turns into water deposits (like all the swimming pools in the complex) … Do you have any ideas why it has this exotic name?
