When it comes to splashing out on some last-minute winter sun, we're of the opinion that short-haul is often best – especially if (like us), you've a) not got much annual leave left, and b) want to have an amazing trip without having to spend all your precious time travelling.

With temperatures averaging in and around a balmy 20° during its early winter months, the Spanish island of Tenerife makes a great destination choice for a pre-Christmas jaunt and the Hard Rock Hotel Tenerife, located on the island's south coast, is already topping our 2018 must-stay wishlist.

And with 35% off November and December bookings, there really isn't a better time to go.

Boasting an Ibiza-style beach club, Insta-worthy pool facilities and a packed events calendar to keep you dancing until dawn, the Hard Rock Hotel Tenerife is perfect for an impromptu girls weekend, couples getaway or family break. Plus, the Canary Islands are only around a four-hour flight from most UK airports, which means you get to make the most of your downtime.

Here's why we're looking to the Hard Rock Hotel Tenerife this Christmas for some vacay rock star vibes...

It's a food blogger's dream

Love a jaw-dropping panoramic? The Hard Rock Hotel Tenerife's exclusive sky bar 'The 16th' provides fabulous views of the Atlantic Ocean, making it ideal for a sunset glass of rosé or two. And if you like your trip with a foodie twist, the resort happens to have six beautifully designed restaurants on-site with a smorgasbord of worldwide cuisine available. From the traditional tapas flavours on offer at Spanish restaurant Ali-Olé, to the chic surroundings of modern Asian eatery Narumi, every palette is more than catered for. We especially love the Montauk steakhouse for its fine selection of top quality beef and wines, plus The Beach Club overlooking the lagoon offers a fantastic selection of healthy food options if you fancy something a little lighter.

You can relax and recharge

Up the pampering potential (ahead of the festive madness) with any of the gorgeous treatments and indulgence packages available at Hard Rock Hotel Tenerife's fabulous The Rock Spa™. Think beautifully designed thermal water bathing areas, plunge pools and hydrotherapy tubs, all waiting to be enjoyed. The luxe spa menu even offers massage treatments set to specially curated playlists to maximise your rock star experience, and Tenerife's only Snow Room. Yes, really.

There are rooms fit for a rock star

Want to feel like a Rock Hall of Fame inductee? Stay in one of the Rock Royalty Rooms located on the 12th, 13th, 14th and 15th floors of the Nirvana Tower, all boasting floor to ceiling windows and panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean. Or, if you're travelling with little ones the hotel's three kids clubs will keep them entertained while you live your best A-lister life. Still no booked anything for NYE? The Hard Rock Hotel Tenerife's THE LEGENDARY NIGHT is the island's most famous end of year bash, giving you the chance welcome in 2019 like an absolute celeb. Think a 7-course menu plus Old Havana-themed celebrations and you've got the makings of a night to remember.

What are you waiting for? Now's the chance to see out 2018 in true rock star style...
