Set to reopen under LHP ownership on April 28, 2023, Teranka – meaning a feeling of being connected to the earth and anchored in a location – aims to embody the essence of Formentera; a small, unique island in the Balearics accessed only by boat – that maintains a creative, laidback feel with a wealth of unspoilt natural beauty unseen elsewhere in the Spanish archipelago.
Set amongst the pine trees, Teranka has a privileged beachfront position, overlooking the pristine turquoise waters the island is renowned for. Teranka has been built in harmony with its natural location, utilising local materials and expertise. Handmade, dry stone walls complement intricate plasterwork and carpentry that showcase unique Formentera techniques that are a result of the historic Al Andalus Arabic influence on the island. It combines to create a sense of sophisticated simplicity in which guests can while away the sun-drenched days and balmy nights.
The vision for Teranka was to not only pay homage to the island and its environment, but also to the history of free spirits and artists that it has become known for. Teranka will dedicate its walls and its sculpture park to contemporary art, sharing with guests, visitors and all art lovers, a private art collection, together with annual exhibitions and talks.
Mediterranean gardens surround the property and are dotted with sculptures and art designed to contrast and enhance the natural beauty of the grounds. Alongside a shaded yoga and meditation terrace, luxurious day beds can also be found amongst the gardens, offering guests an alternative to the hotel’s loungers on the sandy beach moments away.
Teranka will offer unrivalled culinary experiences on the island, set to become a gastronomic destination for island visitors as well as hotel guests.
