Hard Rock Plans Second European Hotel in Canary Islands

After opening its first European hotel in Ibiza, Spain, in May, Hard Rock International has announced plans for a second European outpost in partnership with Spanish hotelier Palladium Hotel Group: the Hard Rock Hotel Tenerife in Tenerife, Spain -- the largest and most populous of the Canary Islands.

Scheduled to open in mid-2016, the hotel will have 637 guest rooms spread across two towers, one of which will cater to families and one of which will cater to adults only. Amenities will include three pools, a saltwater lagoon and recreation area, four restaurants, multiple outdoor terraces and entertainment venues, a spa, a fitness center, and a Hard Rock-brand retail store.

"Tenerife's superb climate, wide variety of cultural activities, and strong accessibility for international travelers makes it an ideal choice for the hotel brand's global fan base," said Josh Littman, vice president of EMEA development, Hotels & Casinos at Hard Rock International. "As we continue to strengthen our relationship with Palladium Hotel Group, we look forward to introducing the Hard Rock Hotel Tenerife to the Canary Islands."
