Both establishments operate under the brand “The Tais Hotels & Villas” comprised of an exclusive collection of extraordinary hotels, each one with its own personality and commitment to excellence.

They are located on an extensive 100,000 m2 estate. Their architectural uniqueness makes them an international icon in the world of luxury and hospitality. They are also a benchmark for sustainability thanks to their 63,000 m2 of tropical and subtropical vegetation. These facilities have developed their own bioclimate in this place, with all kinds of palm trees, dragon trees, Indian laurels, Ficus Canariensis, flamboyant trees, jacarandas, fruit trees, cacti, and several European plants.
