The Government Council of the Canary Islands has authorized the construction of a four-star hotel in Lanzarote. Specifically, the project will be built in Costa Teguise. The hotel will have 407 accommodation places that will be distributed in 176 units.
The Canary Islands Tourism Renewal and Modernization Law establishes that the new implementation of hotel and non-hotel establishments requires the mandatory authorization of the Government of the Canary Islands, prior to authorizations by the island councils.
The establishment must meet building quality standards and the service offered, which guarantee minimal environmental impact in terms of, at least, water savings, noise and light pollution, and waste management. In addition, it must meet the conditions of density, equipment, infrastructure and services established by regulation to configure a model of excellence and eco-efficiency to obtain quality certifications, tourism environmental management and maximum energy efficiency.
The establishment is planned on a plot of 50,600 square meters in Costa Teguise and after authorization from the regional government, it must have authorization from the Lanzarote Cabildo.
