The complex, located in Costa Teguise, will have 54 places of accommodation, one floor and a private area that has a garden, terrace and pool

The Canary Islands Government Council authorized the construction of 26 villas on the Avenida de Las Palmeras Costa Teguise, belonging to the municipality of Teguise, on Lanzarote. Most of these villas, which will have 54 accommodation places, will be on one floor and with a private area that has a garden, terrace and swimming pool. All have the L shape in common, with the dual function of obtaining wind protection and providing as much privacy as possible to the outdoor areas.


This complex meets the provisions of the Law of Canary Islands Renewal and Modernization of Tourism, which establishes that only prior authorizations will be granted for tourist accommodation places in Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria and Tenerife -as a necessary requirement for the subsequent planning licenses- when they have as their object the new implementation of hotel and non-hotel accommodation establishments.


In the latter case, extra hotelers are authorized when territorial planning does not expressly prohibit them, when they meet building quality standards and the service offered that guarantees the minimum environmental impact in terms of, at least, water savings, noise and light pollution, and waste management.


In addition, they must meet the conditions of density, equipment, infrastructures and services established by regulation to set up a model of excellence and eco-efficiency, as well as to obtain quality certifications and tourist environmental management and maximum energy efficiency.


The Law also establishes that the mandatory authorization of the Government of the Canary Islands is required, prior to prior authorizations by Island Councils, except for establishments of five stars or higher categories.


Since 2017 the Government of the Canary Islands has given authorization to two resorts in Tenerife and three in Lanzarote that have benefited from the exceptions of the Tourist Renewal Law.
