Siam Mall opens its doors to offer a new shopping experience
It took many people by surprise but Tenerife’s latest shopping experience, the Siam Mall at Costa Adeje, opened its doors on May 23rd.
This was a coup not just for all those involved in the stunning centre but a great boost for the island, the construction industry and new projects after years of stalemate on new developments.
It also signals a major vote of confidence in Tenerife and its future as a major tourism destination.
Siam Mall is not just for the holiday-maker, however. The aim is to attract local people as well, not just from the north and south but from the other islands and the mainland as well.
It’s very much a symbol of hope for the future and evidence that the tide of the economy is turning at last.
There wasn’t a massive amount of pomp and ceremony over the opening wee-kend but the first visitors were treated to entertainment and special offers.
Many of the new shops are now open but there are more to come and most people were surprised at how quickly the development had been completed as from afar, it seemed there was still a lot of work to do.
The shopping mall has two floors and more than 1,100 free car parking spaces. It has large open spaces, pergolas, gardens and fountains to create a pleasant environment where light and the outdoors are the protagonists.
The setting has figures and decorative details made exclusively in Thailand for Siam Mall.
In total, there is more than 30,500 square metres of space to accommodate fashion, restaurants and large open terraces. With the family very much in mind, there are two children’s playgrounds available to clients on the top floor.
In addition, throughout the year, there will be animations, shows, exhibitions and fashion shows for all audiences.
There are more than 70 units within the centre and all the big names are or will be represented, including the likes of Zara, Bershka, Pull&Bear, Massimo Dutti, Stradivarius, Lefties, the biggest H&M in Tenerife, Mango, Sfera, Guess, Springfield, Maripaz, Timberland, Carolina Boix, RKS, Pandora, Casa del Oro, Woman Secret, Swiss Shop, Divage, Cortefiel, Orange, Farmavida, Figaro, Multiopticas, Dreamland, Eureka and more.
Coming soon will be a petrol station and there is also a Hiperdino supermarket.
To satisfy the tastebuds, there is a wide seletion of 17 cafes and restaurants such as BBQ, Taste of Asia, Tasty, 100 Montaditos, Tex Mec&Co, Knoodles and Sushi, Cafe Martinez, Sweet Di, Lizarran, Tony Romas, Amorino, Tanger Chill Out and more.
Siam Mall is next to Siam Park, on the right of the TF-1 if travelling towards Costa Adeje.
It has created 600 new jobs and there is already a waiting list of companies who would like to take space when or if it becomes available.
