Rosa Maria Gotlib joins our Abama Hotels in Tenerife South

Abama Hotels in Tenerife South, the prizewinning 5-star accommodations that include Las Terrazas de Abama Suites and Los Jardines de Abama Suites, are moving forward with ever more ambitious expansion plans. With double the capacity offered just a few years ago, these exclusive suites and villa accommodations are perfect for families of any size, groups of friends, or a solitary retreat in pristine surroundings with incredible views and a spectacular array of services.

We sat down with Abama Hotels’ new Director of Sales & Marketing, Rosa Maria Gotlib, a seasoned professional who looks forward to the challenges of the next few years. Ms. Gotlib’s more than 20 years of experience in the luxury hotel sector have been accrued within the sales and marketing divisions of luxury hotel brands including Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts and The Ritz-Carlton. She holds a degree in Hotel & Tourism Management from the Les Roches Hospitality School in Switzerland.

Las Terrazas de Abama Suites and Los Jardines de Abama Suites each have a personality of their own, but how would you define the global concept of Abama Hotels? What kind of lifestyle does it offer?

Abama Hotels is a collection of hotels in Tenerife South with heart that are located in a sanctuary of incredible calm and tranquility. Our architecture, our spectacular gardens, and the majestic views of the Atlantic Ocean all exist in perfect harmony with one another. It’s a place of balance and immersion in the natural landscape that surrounds us; the lifestyle it offers is modern and filled with the comforts of an excellent hotel, but the approach is sustainable and connected with its environment.

The personalization of services has gained tremendous importance in the hospitality sector. How does Abama Hotels customize the exclusive services it offers to guests?

The key is being proactive and anticipating our guests’ needs, which makes our interactions with them frictionless during their stay. Listening to guests and responding to them with warmth and efficiency in every interaction is a key part of our culture. Our push towards optimal digitalization also means that our delivery is practically instantaneous.

Abama Resort Tenerife is preparing to open a new spa. What else awaits us in the coming year? Are there any new services or packages that Abama Hotels will be adding to its offer for guests?

Our Golf Clubhouse will be closed for four months this summer, from May to October, in order to carry out a full renovation of its design, furniture, and dining concept. The new restaurant is going to be a spectacular addition to our other establishments, because in addition to opening for breakfast and lunch, it will also offer dinner to guests with stunning views of our golf course, sunsets, and the islands of La Gomera and La Palma.

Our Tennis Center is also expanding, and part of this expansion will include our new gym. It will have Technogym-brand equipment and zones for cardio, strength, and stretching, as well as an additional activities room for yoga and Pilates.

Overall, we're going to emerge from 2024 with an offer of services and facilities that has broadened and strengthened. Abama Hotels is already at the top of the list of hotels in Tenerife South, and we look forward to buttressing our international visibility as the best place to enjoy Tenerife holidays.
