Moorish-style castle with a restaurant helmed by a Michelin-starred chef and a cocktail bar in a former chapel
Mediterranean castle meets Moorish fortress. This exclusive retreat sits in a bucolic valley an hour from Mallorca's capital, Palma. Guests enter the sprawling grounds along a palm-lined driveway and traverse designer gardens before reaching the main house. Limestone halls have been redecorated in a mod-chic melange ranging from swinging ’60s to contemporary minimalism with a dash of Philippe Starck-flavor thrown in. The grounds include an enormous azure pool lined with plush lounge chairs and an honor bar brimming with ice cold island wines, as well as meandering hiking paths through the nearby hills.
Bed and Bath
The room decor reflects the property’s centuries of history as a country retreat, with rustic fittings such as oak floors and buttery brown leather headboards that feel especially right in rooms housed in the former stables. Free WiFi, LCD TVs and well-stocked minibars offer present-day convenience. The bathrooms are positively palatial, with peaked roofs, Travertine marble and specially commissioned Plantation bath products based on Mallorcan scents. Take your room's beach bag (prestocked with sun hats and towels) out to your sun-drenched patio or balcony.
The hotel is filled with rendezvous spots, including the former chapel, which serves as the intimate cocktail bar, and an inner courtyard where guests can enjoy a seasonal tasting menu designed by Madrid-based Michelin-starred chef Fernando Perez Arellano. The hotel’s more casual dining experience is Olivera, where a breakfast of local specialties like sugar-dusted ensaimada pastries is served on a patio with mountain views. Lunch and dinner consist of simple gourmet fare that might include local langoustines in a pastry crust with mango and ginger dip. The subterranean Bellesa de Claret spa is anchored by a tranquil pool with a living wall of plants. The treatment of choice is a hammam session in a crystal-lined room, though the Primordial Water Hydrating Facial might be just what your skin needs after a day out in the Mediterranean sun.
In the Area
Mallorca means beaches, and no visit to the island is complete without a stop at some of the most popular, like Cala Agulla, a white sand beach backed by pine trees and mountains, and Es Trenc, on the southern coast, which is famous for its sand dunes and rocky outcrops. Beaches on the south and east sides of the island tend to be more secluded, though you’ll find a megayacht or two moored in the coves. For a dose of culture, head to the charming hill village of Valldemossa, which is filled with leafy lanes and an imposing Carthusian monastery where Chopin spent a summer with Georges Sand convalescing and composing.
