Planning a trip to Lanzarote? From wooden domes and quaint farmhouses, to adults only retreats, here are the best boutique hotels in Lanzarote!
Lanzarote, one of the Canary Islands, has long been a popular tourist destination, and for good reason! Lanzarote has stunning landscapes featuring luscious rainforests, black sand beaches, ancient volcanoes and crystal clear blue water.
Visitors to the island spend their days lazing on the beach, windsurfing, visiting lava tubes, hiking, or riding buggies. Honestly, I will always have time for one more trip to this gorgeous island (even when I’ve just gotten back).
Due to its popularity, there are many large tourist resorts on the island. However if, like me, you prefer a more individual experience, boutique hotels in Lanzarote are the way to go.
Let your stress melt away at the adults only Lani’s Suites de Luxe, or spend a few nights in the unique surroundings of Tara Domo. These boutique hotels help ensure you spend more of your holiday chilling by the pool – and less time in line for the breakfast buffet!
So, if you’re headed to Lanzarote soon, or just daydreaming about island vacations, you’ll need to know where to stay. To help you plan, I’ve created a list of my favourite boutique Lanzarote hotels in Lanzarote, as well as some information about the different neighbourhoods on the island.
To help plan your trip further, check out my guide to driving in Lanzarote. This will help with everything from car hire to what it’s actually like driving on the roads here.
Where to stay in Lanzarote
The whole island is just 60km long and 25 km wide, meaning no matter where you stay, you’ll be able to reach anywhere on the island in an easy day trip. However, you’ll definitely find that some spots are more suited to your holiday needs. Take a look at my easy guide below:
Puerto del Carmen – Travelling with friends and looking to experience some of that holiday nightlife? Packed with bars and clubs, Puerto del Carmen is best place to stay if you’re looking to party the night away. Alongside the famous nightlife, here you’ll find the relaxing Playa Grande, and excellent diving spots.
Costa Teguise – Costa Teguise is a friendly area offering calm beaches, vibrant markets, windsurfing, and excellent seafood restaurants. If you want everything at your doorstep, this is the spot for you.
Playa Blanca – If you’re travelling with your family – the tranquil Playa Blanca makes an excellent base. Here you can explore volcanic caves, splash around the water park, and even check out an underwater museum.
Famara – Situated on the north-west coast of the island, Famara is a hot-spot for surfers and kite-surfers. There is a shipwreck just off the coast, some great places for snorkelling, and some incredible coastal walks to enjoy.
Haria – Located on the island’s north, this area is less know on the tourism trail – making it a great budget option. If you’re travelling on a shoestring and have access to your own transport – this is the area for you.
Playa Honda – If you’re short on time and want to maximise your beach time – this is the best beach close to Lanzarote airport. The area is super close to Arrecife, the island’s capital, and much less touristic than other beaches on the island.

Boutique Hotel H10 White Suites, Playa Blanca
One of my favourite boutique Lanzarote hotels is the White Suites, located in Playa Blanca. With a buffet restaurant, poolside bars, daily Pilates programmes and in-house spa, this adults only hotel has everything you need located on its premises.
Honestly, you’re going to find it hard to drag yourself away from the incredible pool area. My suggestion, order another Mai Tai and let yourself melt away on the poolside Balinese sunbed. This hotel is very close to my favourite beach Papagayo, so I’d really recommend dragging yourself away from the hotel and visiting there if you can.
MAGMA Rooms, Playa Honda
Just 6 minutes walk from Playa Honda, and close to the island’s airport, the stylish MAGMA Rooms is an excellent choice for your holidays. With its convenient locations, here you can maximise your time at the beach.
