Meliá Llana Beach Resort & Spa
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’.
