Bahía del Duque Hotel
History & Story
Hotel Bahía del Duque opened on the 20th of November, 1993. Located in Costa Adeje, in the south of the island of Tenerife (Canary Islands), its opening meant a real revolution in the tourist sector in the Islands. Bahía del Duque was the first luxury hotel in Tenerife and a model of success that has marked the subsequent tourist development of the Archipielago. Over 25 years later the Hotel is still a reference of luxury, exclusiveness and impeccable service. Bahía del Duque, designed by Andrés Piñeiro, recreates a small traditional village from the 19th century, with low-rise independent houses, breaking away from the concept of tall and voluminous tourist buildings. Bahía del Duque is a hotel of The Tais Hotels & Villas, owned by Grupo CIO, a Canarian family run company that has over 120 years of experience in the Canarian market.
The Hotel is working permanently to keep being one of the most emblematic and iconic Hotel on the island. Bahia del Duque has been really a pioneer in many different aspects as the first Hotel with private villas with plunge pool.
The hotel is under constant renovation. The last update was in 2022, when some rooms and one of the event lounges were renovated. All these works are carried out in-house by our Image Team.
Date Added Extansions
In 2008 Las Villas were built and in 2009 Bahía Wellness Retreat was opened.
