SENSATORI TENERIFE – Could this be a Paradise on Earth?

The hotel’s actual name is Gran Melia Palacio de Isora (www.granmeliapalaciodeisora.com) and Sensatori is the thomson-owned part of this hotel. In other words, certain bedrooms are sensatori, a certain number of tables in the restaurant are allocated to Sensatori guests etc. Also within the hotel are Club Gran Melia guests (which I think must be the time-share/owner) sections. Club gran melia also have their own reserved areas by the pool etc etc. There are certain pools / sunbathing areas / restaurants / bars allocated to “adults only” and to “red-level” guests only (who presumably have paid more for this exclusivity). In other words, you are not going to a Thomson owned hotel. It is much more segregated in it’s set-up, but to be honest, it’s so big that I really did not feel like I was being excluded from anything particularly special. There was still plenty left for sensatori families like ourselves!

The main pool, there are four other pools, including a splash pool, a family pool, and a quieter, adults-only one surrounded by lawns and Balinese beds. The main pool here measures up at a massive 260 metres. Filled with saltwater and accessorised with in-water sunbeds, whirlpools and jets, it merges into an infinity pool with standout sunset views.

It was simply unbelievable… the sun set was the time to indulge in natures unrivalled beauty and enjoy a few moments of retrospection of how beautiful the life is. Every evening the sky was painted in different colours, cast a different hue and made us feel a different emotion. And the nights were truly spectacular.
 This place was just so photogenic…. For once, I’m going to pipe down and let my photos do the talking. Enjoy.

The Highlight was the Global Buffet at ultra-modern Pangea restaurant. Food was sumptuous and the variety was phenomenal… everything from pasta, seafood, salads and huge variety of deserts.

The Oasis Pool Grille had a  laid-back informal vibe, and speciality here is Mediterranean food. Exclusive list of meat and fish dishes, and in winter they also have a hot stone menu.

Club Ocean, served Italian favourites in formal and elegant setting.

We also wanted to sample sushi and teppanyaki at Nami which was the Talk of the resort. We did have to pay a little extra but was worth every penny.
