A story of love and passion

Cumai’s story is a story of love and passion. Cumai is the acronym for the names of Curro Palomares, María Pérez and Iván, their son.

The origin of this innovative project starts when, after many years of working in different hotel chains, large restaurants and launches, Curro and María decide to change their lives.

In 2014 they settled in Tenerife and set up El aliño, in La Orotava, in the north of Tenerife, where they immediately made a good number of friends. Shortly after, they decide to open the first Cumai, also in La Orotava. A small place with six tables, where Curro’s kitchen is sophisticated and María’s room is perfected, notably expanding her fan base.

In 2018 they conclude that Cumai must move forward and they have the opportunity to transfer their brand to the recently remodeled Atlantic Mirage Suites & Spa hotel.

The new Cumai opens in October 2018 with Curro’s signature in the kitchen and the contemporary vision of María in the room.
