Tui Blue to expand into Canary Islands this winter


Amie Keeley amie.keely@travelweekly.co.uk


Tui is to expand its latest hotel brand to the Canaries.


The Tui Blue Jardin Tropical


will open in Tenerife in November, following the opening of two hotels in Turkey earlier this year. The former 390-room Puravida


Resort Jardin Tropical is on the coast of Costa Adeje, about 400m from the beach and with access to the promenade. The four-and-a- half-star, Moorish-style hotel has four pools and free Wi-Fi. Tui Blue Palm Garden on the


Turkish Riviera and Tui Blue Sarigerme Park on the Turkish Aegean opened in May, and three hotels in Austria, Germany and Italy have also been announced. The hotels focus on technology,


health and wellness. It’s the first time the parent company of Thomson and First Choice has used the Tui brand in the name of all-inclusive resorts.
