Mallorca hotels awards

Top hotels garner gongs galore

Two of Mallorca's top hotels, renowned world-wide for their individual style, architecture, service and settings have just received awards from two very different organisations.

hotel cap rocat

The Hotel Cap Rocat, set in a quiet area of Palma Bay near Cala Blava was once a fortress known as Cap Enderrocat before its conversion to a luxury hotel. It has just been recognised by the Fortress Study Group, an international society of artillery fortification and military architecture, for its work in restoring the old fortress to its present state whilst respecting its rich architectural and natural heritage with marine and bird reservations.

As you can imagine, the Hotel's position gives it commanding views of the whole seafront and bay of Palma for miles and miles, yet it is in a completely tranquil area which makes disconnecting from the busy world of work so easy during a holiday.

Elegant and refined, with service and facilities to match – direct access to the sea, pool, tennis, yoga, personal trainers, and a well regarded restaurant – it doesn't come cheap but for we mere mortals it would make a great place to stay for a very special celebration.

hotel la residencia

Over in the north-west of Mallorca, the Hotel Belmond La Residencia in the picture perfect town of Deia has just been named in CNN's list of the 20 most beautiful hotels in Europe and it's easy to see why. Formerly owned by British magnate Sir Richard Branson, La Residencia dates back to the 16th century and is as stunningly beautiful as it is popular.

With views of the surrounding Tramuntana Mountains and the honey coloured houses of Deia clinging to the hillsides, it's another ideal retreat from the hectic outside world. Guests can relax in an award-winning restaurant, sauna and wellness centre, or work up an appetite on the tennis courts.

Almost uniquely, La Residencia also has a garden sculpture park for some quiet contemplation, and a resident team of donkeys ready and waiting to take you on trails through the olive groves around Deia.

Again, La Residencia is at the top end of the price scale if you wish to stay, but then a stay there would be just priceless! Read more about both hotels and book online by clicking the links above.
