New luxury hotel and golf course in south Tenerife given the green light
The mayor of Guía de Isora in Tenerife, Josefa Mesa, announced yesterday (Thursday) that the project for the new Maguenes Resort, a luxury hotel complex that will be the first in the Canary Islands commissioned from the famous architect Norman Foster, has been approved by the planning department of the City Council.
The Maguenes project is characterized by its innovative concept in sustainable design and its integration into the environment, designed by the London-based Foster & Partners architectural studio, reflecting the avant-garde and luxury spirit of the project, managed by Grupo CIO, Compañía de las Islas Occidentales, the company that owns the renowned Hotel Bahía del Duque.
Grupo CIO has more than 20 years experience in the luxury tourism sector of the Canary Islands and wanted to create yet another innovative resort that perfectly combines the endemic nature of the area with luxury stays and excellent service.
Covering an area of more than 850,000m2, the Maguenes Resort will offer three exclusive products: a luxury boutique hotel, a Private Residence Club (PRC), and the Maguenes Residences private villas. Thanks to the experience of The Tais in health and wellness, the resort will also feature a complete and elegant wellness & spa area, as well as a 500,000m2 golf course designed by legendary golfer Gary Player.
Sustainable development is one of the project’s priorities, which is why it will be integrated into the existing landscape, with organic terraces and the slopes of the land being used to maximize the views and differentiate the areas of the Resort.
The mayor underlined the importance that tourist infrastructures of this level are for the municipality, because, she said “it follows the line of the type of luxury tourism that has always been pursued from Guia de Isora.”
