A cross between a Moroccan riad and an executive hippy hideaway, Casa El Morro in Lanzarote is laid back to the point of being horizontal. Balinese beds beckon round every shady corner, and the sweet smell of incense adds to the floaty atmosphere.
Getting back in tune with nature is one of the major lures - the gardens are awash with citrus trees, Canary Palms, figs and lavender; several walks begin and end close to the guesthouse; and there are more strenuous activities close by, including windsurfing and mountain-biking. Casa el Morro is located in a rural area at the highest peak of the village of Uga, called El Morro. It is situated in the south of the island near the National Park of Timanfaya and a few minutes from La Geria, an area of natural beauty famous for its vineyards. The accommodation comprises 7 individually designed suites, fully equipped and self–contained. The house dates to the XVIII century and was tastefully restored some 10 years ago in the Canarian style, using original materials and other antique fixtures and fittings. The result is an ambience which provides homely surroundings and a relaxing environment.
Casa El Morro is situated in the Geria, an area of vineyards, close to the National Park of Timanfaya. From Casa el Morro it is easy to get to Papagayo beach, considered the most beautiful beach on the island. It is also very close to Palya Quemada, an amazing old fishing village with one of the best restaurants in Lanzarote. This is a good place for bike lovers and those who like long walks and spectacular views.
From Arrecife airport to Uga: follow the signs to Carretera de Arrecife a Yaiza/LZ-2. Take this road in the direction of Yaiza. Follow for about 12 minutes, passing 3 roundabouts. At the next roundabout (after the petrol station Combustibles Canarias), take the first exit towards La Geria and Teguise on your right. Follow this road to the end where you will find a roundabout. Turn to your right into Calle El Morro and Casa del Morro is on your left.

Each house sleeps 2 – 5 people and has been designed with a care and attention that make them stand out from other hotels. There are Colonial iron and glass lamps, silk material, Victorian baths, arabic tiles saved from old Andalucian patios and arched volcanic ceilings. In each house you enter into an exquisite and special atmosphere. Colour schemes and decoration reflect an eastern approach, created by using natural pigments along with locally obtained stone, lava and tiling. Also all the materials used are non toxic and ecological, from natural oils to nurture the wood of ceilings and doors to lime stone for washing the thick stone walls of the building. The furniture was mainly imported from Indonesia and the solid teak wall hangings and other features result in an elegant decorative theme. Each suite is equipped with satellite television and a music system.
Landscaping of mature palm trees and beautiful flowers surrounding the houses and swimming pool provide you with areas for relaxation and views of Timanfaya National Park to the South.
We also offer activities like yoga classes and massages. In Casa el Morro we have a yoga room for groups of up to 30 people or individual sessions. There is also a yurt. We can arrange bikes rental, trekking, surfing, diving, etc.
