Bottom Line

The Bohemia Suites and Spa is a 67-room, adults-only, luxury boutique hotel in Playa del Ingles, roughly 200 yards from the beach. The lush El Siam Spa offers a full array of Thai-influenced bodywork and beauty treatments. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with royal palms and exotic flower gardens, as well as high privacy hedges that make the pool feel perfectly remote. Rooms and common areas are designed in luxe high style, with bright modern furniture and atmospheric lighting (that some find a bit overwhelming). Considering its many on-site facilities (fitness center, spa, restaurants, and pools), freebies (Wi-Fi and breakfast), and often affordable rates, the Bohemia Suites offers a surprisingly solid value for a luxury property.

Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

Bold, quirky, modern decor with creative lighting and a spectacular rooftop restaurant and bar

The Bohemia Suites & Spa is a sophisticated vacation oasis with attention paid to every detail, from the lobby's long red carpet to the rooftop Restaurant and Lounge Bar 360’s gorgeous panoramic views, excellent food, designer cocktails, and intimate but spacious feel that allows visitors to catch their breath and recharge in exquisite surroundings. Everywhere there are picture windows and vibrant quirky furnishings, including an array of deep-red, origami-esque sculptural chandeliers in the lobby bar, a banquette of cheeky, orange-red leather couches, and pillows everywhere. As a luxe, adults-only hotel, this property has a decidedly tranquil, sophisticated vibe -- but the fun pops of color and funky furniture get it a slightly more laid-back, playful feel.

Location

In Playa del Ingles, in a quiet area near the beach

The Bohemia Suites & Spa is in a quiet area of Playa del Ingles, which has in recent years become a center for the Canary Islands gay party scene. The Bohemia, however, is on a quiet one-way street surrounded by other hotels, located approximately 215 yards from the beach. The more chilled-out town of Masapalomas is a 45-minute walk down the beach or a 10- minute trip by car. For golfers, the nearest course is within a 10-minute walk.

Rooms

Super high-tech rooms have small, peaceful balconies

Rooms and suites at the Bohemia Suites & Spa are designed to blend indoor and outdoor living in seamless luxury. Decor is a combination of bold purples, oranges, and gold leaf, with eye-catching bedspreads and rich wood accents. Beds have pillow-top mattresses; furnished balconies feature comfortable double sunbeds with pillows, armchairs, and fun (or weird depending on your taste) little gnome tables for resting cocktails or free espresso fresh-brewed in the illy machine. Each room has an iMac and Apple TV with free Wi-Fi, movies, and everything a tech-head needs. Bathrooms have rainfall showers but are small in most rooms. Some suites have freestanding clawfoot tubs with mountain views.

Features

Stunning, full-service spa, yoga and Pilates, a free breakfast cooked to order, and a pool with underwater music

The Bohemia Suites & Spa is all about relaxation and luxury, and this is especially clear in the stunning El Siam Spa, with 11 treatment rooms and a full menu of treatment options. It's an oasis within an oasis, with orchids, exotic furniture, lotus flowers, red silk hangings, rose petals in the stone pedicure tubs, and outdoor lounge areas guests may need to be pried from at closing time. Wellfit, the health club, features state-of-the-art exercise equipment as well as a sauna, steam room, and cold plunge pool. Yoga and Pilates classes are offered on-site, and there are two freshwater pools, one with underwater music, for lap swimmers.

Free breakfast is served cooked to order in the rooftop restaurant as guests watch the day begin far below. Reservations are required for dinner in the a la carte Restaurant 360, where sunsets are spectacular. The menu is Mediterranean with French and Asian influences. The adjacent Lounge Bar 360 overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and the Dunes of Maspalomas; the atmosphere is hip but ritzy -- no bathing suits or flip-flops at dinner. The Sapphire Pool Bar is more than a snack stop, with comfortable couches, extra-wide beach umbrellas, and a wooden deck that is super chic.
