WAÏF: Revisiting Las Salinas
Las Salinas Hotel, built in 1973 by spanish architect Fernando Higueras, was one of the first buildings designed for tourism on the island of Lanzarote. As described in a tourist guide of the time “facilities have been carefully conjugated, combining the arid volcanic soil of its surroundings with a tropical atmosphere. This Hotel is the meeting point and place of residence of Heads of State and celebrities from all nature, visiting the island”.
Nowadays the hotel attempts to preserve the memory of a glorious past, a mix of exoticism and hedonism, where the exuberant architecture of Fernando Higueras acted as a magnificent setting.
