Dream becomes a reality as spectacular new hotel opened
A spectacular new five-star luxury hotel which has involved an investment of more than 100 million euros has opened in the heart of Costa Adeje.
The GF Victoria, an ecological hotel unprecedented in the archipelago, was formally inaugurated on June 6th in a ceremony attended by more than 400 guests.
The hotel has six swimming pools, a convention centre, several restaurants, vertical gardens, zip lines, slides and even a Formula One simulator.
The new hotel establishment, the fifth of the group in Tenerife, is located in one of the most sought after areas of the south, in the triangle formed by the El Duque Shopping Centre and the Gran Tacande and Bahia del Duque hotels in Costa Adeje. It occupies an area of three hectares on which 54,000 square metres have been built on, distributed on seven floors that occupy 242 family suites.
Its spectacular features include a suspended seven-story-high pool with walls and glass bottom, visible from the street, colourful fountains and a recreational park with tree towers joined by zip lines.
Its facilities have been designed so that 90 per cent of the hotel’s energy consumption comes from renewable sources. Its ecological hotel profile was recognised even before its opening, by becoming the first tourist establishment in the Canary Islands to obtain the Triple A certificate, the highest sustainability category for this type of building.
After 60 years at the head of Grupo Fedola, Fernando López Arvelo, founder and president of the group, described the GF Vitoria as “the icing on the cake of our projects”.
The idea was first thought of in 2001 when the land was acquired for its construction.
“I only had a dream and an idea; all the work has been of my children and family, “said Sr. Arvelo.
