These prestigious awards name the establishment as the best spa in the world and Europe’s best ‘eco’ spa

  • Victoria López, President of Grupo Fedola, received the distinction during the awards ceremony which took place in St. Petersburg, Russia
  • In the words of López, “this award reinforces the brand and the destination of Tenerife in the world”

Bio-Spa Victoria receives the World Luxury Spa Award as the best spa in the world and the best ‘eco’ spa in Europe. Victoria López, President of Grupo Fedola, accompanied by Abraham Portocarrero, Director of the Bio-Spa, were responsible for collecting both awards during the ceremony held at the official hotel of the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Luxury, exclusivity, dreamlike facilities and excellent service, make Bio-Spa Victoria the best spa in the world. This new space, located in the GF Victoria hotel, is distinguished by its personalized treatments with organic and natural products. A concept that goes hand in hand with the sustainable management of the hotel establishment and that, with just one year of life, has achieved one of the highest distinctions in the sector.

In the words of Victoria López, “for Bio-Spa Victoria, it is an honour to receive this magnificent distinction that reinforces the brand and destination of Tenerife in the world, as well as contributing a plus to the ‘wellness’ offer of the island”. In addition, she emphasizes that it is a product that goes one step further, since “we work to offer the best services without forgetting our commitment to sustainability”, she added.

The prestigious World Luxury Spa Awards are delivered annually and distinguish luxury spas worldwide in numerous categories. These awards recognize, thanks to customer feedback, the excellence of service and commitment to the environment of Bio-Spa Victoria. “With or without this recognition, sustainability will be our guiding principle,” said López.

Bio-Spa Victoria is a new space that presents a differentiated offer including holistic treatments for relaxation, the practice of sport, the advice of a personal trainer, guided activities, or meditation, among many others.

GF Victoria is the new luxury five-star hotel of GF Hotels, the chain owned by Grupo Fedola, which offers a combination of relaxation and family entertainment unprecedented in the hotel map of the islands.

Zambra SkyBar, a gift for the eyes and for those with ‘vibrant palates’

Zambra SkyBar stands out as the real surprise of this summer to change the way to enjoy an afternoon/evening of leisure in the south of Tenerife. Its combination of music with the best signature cocktails of the Canary Islands, merges perfectly with the sublime terrace located on the fifth floor of GF Victoria.

The privileged setting of the Costa Adeje coastline, with 360º views, gives Zambra SkyBar a dreamy sunset and exclusivity marked by the hanging glass pool, unique in the islands.

The Zambra Skybar is a gift, not only for the eyes but also for exquisite experts in ‘vibrant palates’. The cocktail menu stands out for its daring, creativity and craftsmanship. It’s time to be surprised by the talented bartenders and to turn the Zambra Skybar into the high temple of mixology on Tenerife.

The ‘minimal’ aesthetic of its terrace contrasts with the magnificent venue presented by GF Victoria, the Grand Luxury hotel, an exclusive reference in the south of Tenerife. The furniture in this space for ‘adults only’ responds to the desire to link this excellent combination menu with the most exquisite tasting.

Great Inauguration of GF Victoria ***** GL!

Our new hotel GF Victoria ***** GL recently opened its doors and today, June 6, we will officially celebrate its inauguration.

The act that will start at 6:00 pm will take place at the hotel’s ‘Jardín del Sol’, where more than 300 guests will be received.

Among them we will have the presence of four special personalities that will intervene in the opening ceremony: Carlos Alonso, president of the Cabildo de Tenerife; Cristóbal de la Rosa, deputy minister of Tourism of the Government of the Canary Islands; José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga, mayor of Adeje and finally Fernando López Arvelo, president and founder of Grupo Fedola.

Victoria López, general director of GF Hoteles and adviser of Grupo Fedola will welcome all the guests to the event that will officially inaugurate the new Grand Luxury – Sustainable hotel of the chain.

The value of a natural diet in GF Victoria

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Regardless of the fact that trends in natural foods change and each season new superfoods appear, along with ways to bring healthier eating habits into our daily lives, at GF Victoria we take gastronomy to another level. We believe that food should be an experience, always vibrant, truly nutritious and energy-giving. We place our trust in natural ingredients and make flavour an active part of a good holiday.

Natural food is not a fad, it is a lifestyle that we integrate into GF Victoria every day as part of the hotel experience.

Within our gastronomic offer you will find a wide selection of products which can be enjoyed as part of a natural diet, with diverse fresh ingredients and creative and delicious ways to eat them. There is much to choose from, but the most important thing is to enjoy it. Taking care of yourself is part of what we consider an authentic vacation.

For this reason, we have specialized areas where we can take advantage of the full potential of the foods best suited to our health and well-being: Bar Zumería Narín and Bar Détox Jardín del Sol are two such examples; places where we offer a natural diet that will delight you .


If we go beyond the world of short-term trends, the phenomenon and success of detox drinks is simply that they are made with fresh fruits and vegetables. They are authentic vitamin drinks that condense many nutritional benefits in a glass, and include a large percentage of the nutrients that, according to the World Health Organization and FAO, we need to consume daily.

Staying well hydrated is vital to our health. If we also include the extra benefits of fruits and vegetables to get rid of toxins and improve the energy levels in the body, this is an additional plus that we can give on top of the offer of sun and wellness in our hotel; a comprehensive care while you enjoy your vacation.


When we look for information about so-called superfoods, we find a series of general characteristics that make them very interesting for our health.

  • 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.

The combination of delicious flavours and a balanced diet are really the keys to a healthy eating regime. Therefore, among our services we include specialized nutritional advice to help you balance your eating habits and turn the dining experience into something very enjoyable.

We hope you come to share this philosophy of natural nutrition with us.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
