Tenerife has long been the holiday destination of celebrities in their various guises from the likes of Agatha Christi in the 1920s and Richard Burton and Liz Taylor in the 1970s to today’s TOWIE girls and footballer’s wives. For those who have the wallets to match their egos; want to feel like a VIP for that special anniversary or who are just fed up to the back teeth with the words ‘crisis’ and ‘austerity’, there are no shortage of ways to part with your cash on our tropical paradise. Talking of cash…
Rub shoulders with the real celebs
Book yourself into a Tagor’ Villa at the five star deluxe resort of Abama Golf and Spa in Playa San Juan where your pillow may just have provided support for the likes of Bill Clinton, Pat Cash or Vin Diesel. These adult only, secluded villas come with their own buggy to drive you around the extensive grounds or just from your sun bed to your terrace, and your own villa attendant to ensure all your needs are met. Spend your days soaking on the hotel’s own beach at the foot of the cliffs and watch the sun set behind the island of La Gomera while you sip your Mojito.
Splash out in style
Rent your own Cabana at Siam Park in Costa Adeje for the day and for a mere €400 for four people you can enjoy entry to the park; fast track pass for all the rides and all-inclusive meals with wine, soft drinks or beer. Each Cabana has its own towels, terrace shower, sunbeds and mini bar.
Eat, drink and be merry
It may not have the necessary bling rating for many of today’s celeb’s but if you really want to dine like a King, book yourself into El Rincon de Juan Carlos in Los Gigantes, ask for his degustación (taster) menu and enjoy a gastronomic floor show to leave your taste buds lying back with a satisfied grin on their faces and lighting a virtual cigarette.
Join the jet set and chill a bottle of Dom Perignon, a snip at €250 a bottle, in a private booth at Tibu night club in Playa de Las Américas where you can shake your booty on the dance floor alongside footballing stars of the Spanish La Liga and the occasional British soap star.
Rest and recovery
Head over to Puerto de la Cruz and the Hotel Botanico for a spot of detox and first class pummelling at their Oriental Spa. Unadulterated pampering, exotic oils and guaranteed rejuvenation await at the hands of their Thai masseurs.
Round off your weekend of indulgence with a VIP Grand Teide luxury helicopter trip with Sky Experience at €495 per person. Survey the island from a unique perspective in your Robinson R44 helicopter, getting up close and personal with Mount Teide, the Orotava Valley, Vilaflor and the island’s last eruption at Chinyero on your Tenerife Tour.
