Last week I took a well-deserved holiday. Or not exactly a proper “lie on the beach relaxing” holiday, more a “get up every morning super early start doing exercise” holiday – I went to Lanzarote, Club La Santa to be exact.
For those of you who don’t know, Club La Santa is a place you go to do as much training as you can possible fit into your program – some do play a tennis match everyday, others, like me, do Crossfit, weightlifting, run, bike and swim 3-4 hrs a day. And then end up doing something active doing the breaks as well, like hiking up mountains.
Anyway, if you look through the fact, that Club La Santa is a genuine resort full of very different people and kids all with different agendas, poolside restaurant with average food and lava hot coffees, a restaurant with changing buffets and apartments, where you’ll end up in one of the restored ones, if not, you’ll stay in some 90s like apartment (which apparently is for staff eyes only – I stayed with one of the Crossfit trainers, so maybe thats why I got the 90s vibe!).
A couple of years ago, Club La Santa renewed a good part of the basic rooms and they build a whole new suite village, which I would highly recommend you book, if you go. All the new suites have great views and are all decorated in a nice light Scandi feeling. A great extra plus is that they all come with a private terrace with comfy sun beds.
The actual island of Lanzarote is not super big, I suggest you rent a car upon arrival in the airport. My favourite part of the island is probably the northern part, with costal cities like Arrieta and Punta Mujeres. We found a cool spot by the habour, from where we could jump into the gorgeous blue water from high above.
