Meliá Llana Beach Re­sort & Spa

M Style - - Sunny Days -

Opened in 2016, the Meliá Llana Beach is the only adults-only re­sort of­fer­ing five-star all-in­clu­sive ser­vice in Cape Verde. Its cus­tomers, who are mostly British, Ger­man, Bel­gian and Nordic, have clear wishes, ac­cord­ing to Es­ther Mon­toro, Ho­tel Man­ager. ‘Our guests are mainly over the age of forty and are

seek­ing tran­quil­lity and very good ser­vice’, she says. whether by look­ing out at the ocean from the suites and rooms; strolling through the trop­i­cal garde

the YHI Spa; or sim­ply en­joy­ing the sun­set ‘in the oa­sis of The Level Lounge, right on the beach’, which for Es­ther is sim­ply ‘mys­ti­cal’.

Dur­ing your stay at the ho­tel, you can par­tic­i­pate in ac­tiv­i­ties like classes on trop­i­cal cook­ing, capoeira and Cape Verdean dance, as well as beach vol­ley­ball, yoga and snorkelling. It doesn’t end there: the lo­ca­tion is also per­fect for get­ting to know the is­land and its ‘un­usu­ally friendly, hos­pitable and very pleas­ant’ peo­ple, and learn­ing about its his­tory at places like the salt mines at Pe­dra de Lume, ‘where de­vel­op­ment on the is­land be­gan in the 15th

cen­tury with the ex­port of salt by Euro­pean set­tlers; the slaves re­spon­si­ble for ex­tract­ing it were the first in­hab­i­tants’.
