The Michelin Guide gala, held at the International Convention Centre Auditorium in Barcelona, once again celebrated Spain’s top restaurants, and this year, Tenerife and the Canary Islands garnered special recognition.
Tenerife’s gastronomy showcased its robust health at the event, accompanied by an intriguing fact: the only hotel in Spain with two Michelin-starred restaurants is located on the island.
The restaurants Taste 1973, situated in the Hotel Villa Cortes (Arona) under the guidance of chef Diego Schattenhofer, and Haydée by Víctor Suárez, located in La Orotava, both earned a coveted star from the prestigious French guide. With these new accolades, Tenerife now boasts a total of nine Michelin stars across seven restaurants.
Remarkably, The Ritz-Carlton Abama and the Royal Hideaway Corales feature prominently in this culinary achievement. The former houses the Kabuki restaurant with one Michelin star, led by chef Ricardo Sanz, and the MB restaurant with two Michelin stars, masterminded by Martín Berasategui. Meanwhile, the Royal Hideaway Corales proudly hosts El Rincón de Juan Carlos, a two-star Michelin restaurant, and San Hô, a one-star Michelin establishment.
These hotels in Tenerife exemplify the pinnacle of culinary excellence, offering diverse dining experiences that combine local and international flavors. The M.B at The Ritz-Carlton Abama and El Rincón de Juan Carlos at the Royal Hideaway Corales both boast two Michelin stars, setting them apart as the only two hotels in Spain with such esteemed recognition.
The Michelin stars in Tenerife are distributed as follows: M.B at The Ritz-Carlton Abama (two stars), El Rincón de Juan Carlos at the Royal Hideaway Corales (two stars), Nub (Bahía del Duque), Kabuki (The Ritz Carlton Abama), and San Hô (Royal Hideaway Corales) each maintain their one-star status, while Taste 1973 (Villa Cortés) and Haydée by Víctor Suárez (La Orotava) join this distinguished group with their newly awarded stars.
