Kempinski Takes over Hotel Atlantis, Fuerteventura

Kempinski Announces Take-over In Fuerteventura, Canary Islands

Kempinski Hotels has signed an agreement with Plazapain S.A. to co-manage the Kempinski Hotel Atlantis Bahia Real with Atlantis Hotels & Resorts S.A.. The property is an existing five star luxury hotel, built in 2003 on the island of Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands, and was taken over by Kempinski Hotels on 1 June 2005.

The Kempinski Hotel Atlantis Bahia Real is situated in the north of the island, on the edge of the Dunes of Corralejo, a natural park with several thousand acres of white sand stretching out to meet the Atlantic ocean. The hotel offers stunning views over the tiny island of Los Lobos, as well as direct access to the beach. Puerto del Rosario international airport is a 35 minute drive from the property and the neighbouring island of Lanzarote is just 20 minutes away by ferry.
Built in a Moorish style, the hotel features 250 luxuriously appointed rooms and suites, including three Presidential Suites and one Royal Suite. Five restaurants, a beach club and two bars provide guests with a multitude of choices in international cuisine.

The Bahia Vital Spa, situated on the edge of the ocean, is an oasis for relaxation and wellness covering over 3000 m2 and specialising in hydrotherapy and a wide array of body treatments.
A second property, the Kempinski Hotel Atlantis Miranda Real, is under construction and due to open in 2007, adjacent to the existing Kempinski Hotel Atlantis Bahia Real. A stunning 1000 m2 ballroom and 14 further meeting rooms provide a total of 2000 m2 of meeting or banqueting space. In addition, the auditorium seating 400 makes the hotel the perfect place to plan conventions and congresses. The Kempinski Hotel Atlantis Miranda Real will also provide 395 one-bedroom apartments and 27 two-bedroom apartments, a second spa over 6000 m2 and a prestigious tennis academy. A further four restaurants and four bars with an additional three pools are also planned, complementing its sister hotel?s offer.

Fuerteventura is the second largest island in the Canaries, renowned for its starkly beautiful desert landscapes and expansive fine white sand beaches. The warm climate and minimal rainfall make the island a welcome retreat year round.

These two new hotels complement the Kempinski Resort Hotel Estepona, which offers guests peace and refined luxury on the Costa del Sol. Kempinski?s prestigious portfolio also comprises luxurious properties in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, South America and Asia. Each offers superior standards of service combined with a distinctive style reflecting the individuality of the property and its location.
