Relax, walk along the beach, sleep... and eat. We know that food is one of the most important aspects of a holiday. Therefore, the Lopesan Baobab Resort gastronomy is simply spectacular. Our kitchens boast reputable chefs, who offer our guests the most delicious dishes made with high-quality ingredients on a daily basis.

Lopesan Baobab Hotel gastronomy offer

No-one can deny that buffets are the essence of hotels, even more so at luxury hotels. The two impressive buffets at Lopesan Baobab Hotel honour this since you can’t just enjoy the most exquisite cuisine from the five continents but you can do so in an exotic African environment. In the case of the Baobab buffet, every time you go to breakfast or dinner you will enjoy welcoming and meandering architecture similar to this unique continent. In terms of the Marula buffet, you’ll feel immersed in the purest African culture thanks to unrivalled decoration inspired by the typical huts of its inhabitants. The gastronomy at Lopesan Baobab Resort has an even more intense flavour in this unique setting!

We have to mention the restaurants at Lopesan Baobab Hotel. How would you like to dine at Pili Pili, the welcoming and sunny barbecue restaurant offering customers the best selection of langoustines and grilled meats. And if you love meat so much you feel the need to try more exotic dishes, you can go to Akara, the only African restaurant in the Canary Islands and your unique opportunity to visit the continent without leaving Meloneras. You won’t know how to choose between wildebeest steak, antelope or ‘baobab’ fruits!

To conclude our presentation of Lopesan Baobab Resort’s gastronomy, we’ll briefly mention the bars. By the pool, there is Mungo Park, a tropical bar whose selection of fruit juices will delight your taste buds; and the sheltered by the vegetation is the Henry Stanley, popular for its cocktails and its magical location snuggled behind the waterfalls. Your days will be better if you enjoy a coffee at Samuel Baker, whose seats are as comfortable as they are elegant; or treat yourself to a cake at the Richard Burton, which also offers a varied menu of the best teas and coffees in the world. Is your palate ready for a thrilling journey through the bars at Lopesan Bar Hotel?

As you can see, evenings in a luxury hotel are always fun but, even better, you can complement your holiday package with an aromatic and delicious breakfast, a snack at a pool bar between dips and a buffet dinner which will put the finishing touches on every day. After sunset, enjoy a cocktail or another drink in one of the bars before going to sleep, perhaps indulging in some live music. Will you be able to resist?
