Mallorcan moustaches for men's health

It's 'Movember' in the Hotel Can Mostatxins

The very aptly named Hotel Can Mostatxins, the name comes from the Mallorcan for moustache, is doing its charitable bit to help the Movember men's health campaign next month.

Let me explain – the Movember Foundation is a charity with the aim of helping men with health problems in the areas of prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity. By raising funds and awareness – men don't like to talk – the foundation hopes to help men live happier healthier lives.

The big push for the campaign comes in November, now renamed Movember, when men all over the world grow, groom and sport a moustache for the duration. It's a great chance for us chaps to sprout some face fungus on the upper lip without the stigma of looking like some of the great tash disasters of the past – Freddie Mercury, Jason King and Magnum PI – to name just a few!

Cue the Hotel Can Mostatxins in Alcudia old town, the most highly rated Mallorcan hotel on booking.com with a cool 9.7 out of 10 rating from its users. Owner Mark Worthington knows all about cancer, having been diagnosed with it himself and now in remission, he is determined to do his bit for fellow sufferers.

Throughout the Movember period, he's going to donate 30% of each booking at his hotel to the charity. All would be givers need do is tweet a photo of themselves with a tash – it doesn't have to be a real one, a a cardboard cut out Chaplin, Poirot or Village People will do – to @canmostatxins to receive a code to use when booking.

If you can't make Movember, then Mark and his team will be more than happy to welcome you in their incredible boutique hotel at any other time. Right in the centre of the historic walled town of Alcudia, full of bars, restaurants, shops and some fascinating architecture, the hotel is an old Gothic style building renovated with style and panache.

With only nine rooms, all restored to their original splendour and with state of the art furnishings which contrast and compliment their surroundings, the main feature at the 'Moustache' is a stunning spa pool set against ancient rock, creating a fabulous 'chill out' area - a perfect place to relax and unwind.

Hmmm, I'm already planning a Clark Gable, what about you?
