Golf Costa Adeje

Just 2 kilometres from Hotel GF Victoria ***** GL, Golf Costa Adeje is one of the main golf courses in the south of Tenerife. With a total of 27 holes and hazards consisting of lakes and ravines, which pose a challenge for the most expert player, it is characterized by its incredible views of the sea and the island of La Gomera. Without a doubt, one of the most complete options available on the island.

Golf Las Américas

A little further on, 5 kilometres from our hotel, our golfer guests can access this unique course, in the style of an amphitheatre and offering a more relaxed game than in the previous case. Why not try this 18 hole course and enjoy your golf sessions in the most pleasant atmosphere of the island.

Golf del Sur

This is one of the oldest courses in Tenerife, although that doesn’t mean that it has stopped offering perfect services and amenities for golfers. Its uniqueness lies in the protection of the surrounding area, which results in a course that combines golf and native flora species, such as palm trees and cacti. Just 20 kilometres from our hotel, you can enjoy a memorable experience here.

Amarilla Golf

How about trying a round of golf next to the seashore? The small municipality of San Miguel de Abona serves as the setting for this particular golf course with 18-holes, allowing the player to maintain sight of the impressive Atlantic Ocean at all times. As if that were not enough, it is also possible to take in the view of magnificent Mount Teide throughout the game. Just 20 kilometres from Hotel GF Victoria, you will be ready to start your game.

Los Palos Golf Centre

Holidays are the perfect time to try new sports or to improve your handicap as a golfer. Los Palos Golf Centre, in the municipality of Arona, is located just over 10 kilometres from our hotel and is the ideal alternative for beginners. With very few slopes and a total of 9 holes, it can be characterized as a pleasant spot, away from crowds, so that you can fully concentrate on your game like nowhere else.

Everything you need to know to make the most of your Yoga sessions

Yoga is the ultimate sports discipline. It offers the perfect harmony between work on posture, flexibility and the capacity for mental relaxation, making it an ideal choice for any type of athlete. Specifically, one of the features that most characterizes this discipline is its versatility; also that it is suitable for all ages and abilities in terms of sports proficiency.

For guests of GF Victoria ***** GL, it has also become one of the most in-demand activities. The great open-air sessions that our colleague Alexis teaches in the Japanese Garden have more and more followers, so we thought we would offer some tips so that you can make the most of these classes and incorporate this discipline into your sports routine.

Comfort above all

Although you may begin to practice yoga in search of physical and mental satisfaction, you should always ensure that the exercise is carried out in the most optimal conditions. Its not necessary that you attend your sessions in a stylish fitness outfit if this doesn´t make you feel comfortable. Our recommendations: choose tights or soft cotton trousers, a vest top or a sports top (better to cope with the good weather in the south of Tenerife) and non-slip socks, in case you don´t wish to go barefoot.

Focus on breathing (and everything else will flow better)

In a discipline where flexibility is being worked, breathing control is especially important. If you want to avoid injuries and finish the sessions feeling good, then take the time to understand your process of contraction and relaxation, so that your whole body is oxygenated.

Don´t underestimate your flexibility

For many years, we have heard that flexibility cannot be worked beyond a certain age, but with the correct manipulation, the possibilities can be most surprising. The yoga sessions will help you discover the pleasure of stretching spontaneously, to the point where your own body will be the one to ask you to keep up the habit.

Balance is not just a physical issue

We know … there are some almost impossible positions in the world of yoga, but, as we have already said, nothing is impossible when done correctly. Your mental and emotional state are fundamental when working with balance and, despite appearances among elite athletes, the key is to keep the body sufficiently relaxed. Make the effort to clear your mind and you will see how much better you will feel.

Investigate the different yoga types

There are as many types of yoga as there are personalities. If you try a technique that does not convince you completely, due to its physical demand or because it is closer to meditation than you like, then you should bear in mind that there will always be a perfect type for you. Investigate, test and draw your own conclusions about the styles which are currently taught, from the well-known Bikram to others such as Hatha, Anusara, Kundalini …

Meditation: a fundamental step

In the everyday rush, we continually see people who leave Yoga sessions before finishing the class. This is precisely one of the most important moments, because it is normally dedicated to a brief meditation, very necessary to put in its place everything previously learned. Take advantage of your holiday in our hotel to enjoy the classes right to the end, and you can even take the initiative and make use of our facilities to carry out your own meditations. We are sure that your body will appreciate it

  • They are natural products, rich in enzymes, vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and with high antioxidant powers.
  • They are excellent sources of fibre with low caloric density.
  • They help the body to recover, nurturing and protecting it, because active consumption helps reduce the risk of diseases and conditions in both the medium and long term.
