Numa Signature debuts the first luxury boutique hotel on Lanzarote, christened César Lanzarote. Nestled in the former home of César Manrique’s father, the hotel pays homage to the island’s essence with 20 rooms set amidst vineyards, olive groves, and gardens. Exuding tranquility under the Parque Natural de los Volcanes, it’s an intimate haven designed to make guests feel truly at home.
Designed by Virginia Nieto, the interior seamlessly integrates Lanzarote’s wild nature, with a predominant palette of green, white, stone, wood, and linen. The central courtyard features lush plants, unique lamps, circular carpets, and plush velvet sofas. The exterior, characterized by white facades interrupted by volcanic lava touches and iconic green doors and windows, adds to the organic charm.
The hotel’s history breathes through its walls, once serving as a school and the residence of Gumersindo Manrique, César’s father. The revived vineyards now produce wine, with plans for olive oil production in the near future.
The 20 individually styled rooms, offering ocean or volcano views, boast unique touches like hydraulic tile or bamboo floors, natural plants, and bathrooms adorned with delicate natural cement. Eight & Bob provides bath products, embodying the essence of César.
Chef Juanjo López, renowned for La Tasquita de Enfrente, leads the gastronomic experience. Alejandro Martín, the chef, emphasizes local produce in Juanjo’s creations, showcasing simplicity with finesse. From conservas and Real Caviar to green mojo avocado and a variety of land and sea dishes, the culinary journey captivates.
César Lanzarote offers a well-rounded experience, encompassing outdoor fitness facilities, massage services, and soon-to-be-introduced sunrise yoga by the pool.
Guests can use complimentary electric bikes, explore the nearby 18-hole golf course, or indulge in various water sports. The hotel also caters to events with a fully equipped space for up to 300 people.
The hotel’s commitment to sustainability shines with solar panels, a desalination plant addressing water scarcity, and a chemical-free, heated pool.
The property harvests its crops, with excess supplied by Finca Machinda, an ecological farming enterprise. Accessibility is ensured with an elevator and an adapted room, and the hotel is exclusively for adults.
César Lanzarote, with its unique blend of history, luxury, and sustainability, beckons travelers to experience the embrace of Lanzarote in an intimate and distinctive setting.
