So what are the golf facilities like?

The name’s on the tin. Being a golf hotel, you’d expect the golf facilities at Elba Palace to be en pointe… and they are. Golf packages and short golf breaks are both offered to suit any avid golfer. You can play against a backdrop of stunning sea views and gardens designed around the local landscape. In the surroundings of the club house, you’ll discover a 50 person driving range, 800m2 putting green and chipping green meaning there’s plenty of space to master your technique. For a little bit of extra support though, there are also clinics available with professional players to offer extra advice… You’ll be a pro in no time. You might even get good enough to compete in one of the tournaments which are held all year round!

What other sports can I take part in at the hotel?

There’s no denying that the 5* Elba Palace hotel sings and dances when it comes to golf. But what happens when golf isn’t your thing? If the Elba Palace were a person it would be bragging right now; there are literally dozens of other activities available at the hotel to keep you occupied. Tennis, mountain biking, hill walking, hiking, and Nordic walking are but a few of them. For those of you more water sports inclined, there are also facilities for surfing, windsurfing, kite surfing, snorkelling, scuba diving, sailing, fishing, boat trips, diving, paragliding… Are you out of breath yet?

What can I do on my rest days?

We won’t blame you if you become quickly worn out… For those relaxing rest days you can reward yourself with one of the lovely revitalising treatments for your health and well-being. Expect a plethora of beauty programs, anti-stress remedies and rejuvenation treatments at the Hespérides Thalasso Spa. Free transfers are offered several times a day and in summer you can even take part in sports activities like yoga, Thai Chi, or Pilates with a personal trainer to get your mind, body and spirit aligned again.

What about when I don’t fancy playing sports?

If you’re not into sports, don’t by any means discount the Elba Palace – it’s still a great option for luxury holidays in Fuerteventua. Grab a precious sliver of quiet time and head to the reading room and library to get immersed into a good book, or keep your mind exercised in the games room. Swimming is also as exerting or relaxing as you choose to make it.. why not take a dip in the pool one toe at a time, or reward yourself with a lazy breakfast in bed using the 24 hour room service… or enjoy a cocktail in the evening at the piano bar with live music playing in the background.

Where can I refuel?

Olympic champion or not, everyone needs to refuel. At Elba Palace, you can choose from fine dining in two great restaurants, offering varied, high class dishes based on local specialities such as fish, Canarian cheeses and a whole host of dishes created with traditional Canarian recipes in mind. Vital Cuisine has a selection of dishes made with healthy and nutritious ingredients cooked in a healthy way to ensure you’re in tip top condition for all that sporting prowess you’ve developed. Or if you choose, you can take the focus off sports and activities and join a themed dinner experience, or try a Spanish wine tasting session.
