Bathed by the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, Gran Canaria is one of the 7 islands that make up the Canary Islands archipelago. With 36 miles of beaches and a total of 146 miles of coastline, Gran Canaria enjoys spring-like temperatures all year long.
Part of the municipality of San Bartolomé de Tirajana, located near to the famous tourist area of Maspalomas and Playa del Inglés, you will find San Agustín, a much quieter town without the big crowds but where you can still find a large infrastructure of restaurants, shopping centres and bars. The beaches of San Agustín and Las Burras are two of the most beautiful and protected beaches in Southern Gran Canaria, and due to the mild climate are popular all year round.
It is here in this quieter area of San Agustin that Thalasso Gloria San Agustín Hotel**** is located, just 450 meters from the nearest beaches of Las Burras and San Agustín. The location allows quick and easy access to the bar and restaurant area, as well as the shopping centre and Maspalomas.
The hotel offers 448 comfortable and bright rooms, in different categories, all with their own terrace and views of either the pool, garden or Atlantic Ocean. All rooms are fully equipped and have air-conditioning, free Wi-Fi internet, TV as well as tea & coffee making facilities.
One of the main reasons for travelling to the Thalasso Gloria San Augustín Hotel should definitely be the fantastic Thalasso centre, which is one of the world´s most modern thalassotherapy centres, boasting nearly 7.000 m2 dedicated to health treatments using sea water.
Designed by the Gran Canarian architect Luis López, the Thalasso centre stands out for its spectacular and harmonious spaces. The large glass dome allows the Thalasso centre to be flooded with natural light, providing an overriding feeling of spaciousness and wellbeing. This thalasso centre sits comfortably and naturally in its surroundings and offers stunning sea views.
The interior has been meticulously designed to create a relaxing atmosphere. The well-known local painter Pepe Dámaso has contributed noticeably to the design, creating a huge mural along the whole length of the pool as well as many stone and algae sculptures, decorative ceiling paintings and tiles in the booths and cabins.
The centre offers extensive facilities such as a relaxing seawater circuit with 34 hydromassage stations (cross-current swimming, microbubble seats, swan-neck water jets and waterfalls…), 2 dynamic pools with temperatures between 16ºC (61ºF) and 37ºC (100ºF) and 1 aquagym pool with an instructor. In addition, there is a sauna, Turkish bath and a gym.
Within the hotel complex there are several restaurants to choose from. There is the buffet restaurant with open kitchen where you can enjoy a wide selection of hot and cold dishes. The panoramic restaurant has a menu specialised in Basque and international food and offers an extensive selection of starters and mains. Located on the 9th floor of the hotel, it really does provide stunning views over the San Agustin beach and the Maspalomas dunes. And last but not least relax in the perfect atmosphere while you enjoy a cocktail or a snack on the Gorbea chill-out terrace, with panoramic views.
