Abama summer: Las Terrazas de Abama opens July 3rd

The news we’ve been waiting for has arrived: Las Terrazas de Abama has reopened its doors to guests as of July 3rd, 2020. In combination with the reopening of Abama Golf and Abama Tennis, this is wonderful news for our property owners and guests of the resort. We very much look forward to welcoming you all back for a relaxing summer here at Abama.

We are fortunate to be located in a destination that is full of open, outdoor spaces, and our apartments offer large terraces, perfect for enjoying a tranquil holiday away from throngs of people.

Melvin restaurant, located in Las Terrazas de Abama, is also open as of the 16th of July.

The establishment, whose kitchen is headed by the inimitable Diego Dato, named Best New Chef in the last edition of the Mesa Abierta gastronomic awards, will operate exclusively under a prior reservation scheme. This will help us maintain a safe number of guests. Service will be offered from 19:30 – 22h on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

Melvin, one of Martín Berasategui’s restaurants, currently holds a “Safe Restaurant” certification from the Hospitality Business Association of Spain, a designation given to establishments that have implemented practices to avoid contagious conditions in the tourism sector.

The large size of the restaurant, which enjoys more than 340 sqm of indoor and outdoor space, means that guests can enjoy enjoy a worry-free meal in conditions of reduced seating capacity, while still enjoying the incredible panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and the island of La Gomera that make Melvin so special.

The safety of our staff, guests, and property owners remains our utmost priority, however, so the reopening of Las Terrazas will be done in phases, and we have worked with industry and health authorities to implement an exhaustive safety plan. Some of the measures implemented include:

  • A daily temperature test for all employees, as well as extensive Covid-prevention training and awareness; the temperatures of guests will also be tested.
  • Specialized and extensive cleaning, hygiene, and sanitation protocols for all areas of the resort
  • Kits with gloves, hand sanitizer, and masks will be available for all guests, and there will be hand sanitizer dispensers in common areas
  • Staff will be protected with all necessary equipment
  • Removal of curtains, carpets, and paper brochures from the rooms to avoid infection
  • Contact-free options for information and communicating with staff
  • Online check-in and check-out

In the first phase of reopening we will also be working with the following protocols:

  • Reception will be open 24h/day but capacity will be restricted to the established levels. When possible, contact by telephone will be preferred: +34 922 839 157
