Easter festival at Abama in Tenerife
Posted on 17th Mar 2014
The Canaries have many colourful, cultural traditions around the celebration of Easter, and this year you can enjoy the best of the season at Abama Resort in Tenerife. Festive displays, storytellers and gourmet workshops combine with the year-round pleasures of Michelin-starred dining and sunshine to make a wonderful stay for guests of all ages.
Inspired by La Orotava’s Corpus Christi celebrations, a glorious flower carpet will be created beneath the Citadel archway at Abama. Guests themselves can take part in the creation of this natural tapestry, combining the island’s native flowers with the unique volcanic sands from the nearby Teide National Park.
Children can be entertained by a storyteller in the shadow of a giant Easter Egg in the lobby, or have a cuddle with some real live Easter bunnies out on the veranda. For more exotic animals, live video feed from the island’s Loro Parque zoo is beamed into the hotel’s kids club. The Easter theme is continued in the activities at Club Abami, where children can enjoy a programme of inspiring educational games and activities.
It’s not just about overdosing on chocolate, as Abama is a magnet for gourmands. The resort’s ten dining options include two Michelin-starred restaurants – Kabuki, serving Japanese fusion, and Martin Berasategui’s “M.B”. As part of the Easter celebrations, a seasonal brunch will be served at the El Mirador restaurant, with unsurpassed views to add to the enjoyment.
If you want to re-create some of these delicious experiences at home, don’t miss Abama’s Paella and sushi-making workshops, and new especially for Easter, a ‘Sweet Bones’ workshop, where guests can learn how to make this traditional Canarian treat.
For a drink equal to the cuisine, try a glass of Moët Ice Imperial, the first and only champagne especially created to be enjoyed over ice, perfect after a day in the sunshine. Or for more of a kick, work your way through Europe’s biggest Mojito menu. The resort’s own cigar sommelier at Cubanika can show guests how to roll their own cigars, a very classy way to “roll your own”.
The Easter celebrations will end with a bang at a festive dinner down by the main pool, with a barbecue, live music and an exciting fireworks display, guaranteed to raise lots of oohs and aahhs.
Seven nights for a family of four staying at Abama Resort from the 1st April 2014 starts from £4650 per family, or from the 14th April starting from £7190 per family, based on two adults and two children under twelve years staying in a one bedroom suite.
