WHERE TO STAY

La Residencia,  A Belmond Hotel

Live the Mediterranean dream at La Residencia. Perched beside the magnificent village of Deia, there is no shortness of beauty here! Embrace your artistic side by stepping inside the studio of Alan Hydes, the artist in residence, and hone your skills in painting and drawing in one of his studio classes. If you are less of an artist and more of a connoisseur, book an afternoon tea while taking in 33 originals by Joan Miró at Cafe Miró. For foodies, an award winning restaurant on property and many more options at your door step will satisfy all of your savory wishes.

Cap Rocat Hotel

Set in a former fortress overlooking the bay of Palma, this high-end hotel is the perfect balance of a city escape while being only 12km from Palma. “Cap Rocat us much more than a hotel: it is an architectural and environmental conservation project, as well as a tribute to all travellers who understand that visiting a new place contributes towards creating a legacy of love and respect for cultures and ways of life.” (Cap Rocat) The hotel has a museum on site that you can visit and learn more about the history of the fortress and leave your trip not only feeling refreshed but also enlightened.

Finca Serena Mallorca

Staying at a finca, or country estate, is another must when visiting Mallorca. There is a large agricultural community on this Spanish island and these boutique finca hotels pay homage to traditional life.  Finca Serena is located in the center of the island, providing a different kind of rustic beauty. Delicious cuisine– all farm fresh– at the Jacaranda restaurant is served up by internationally renowned chef Óscar Velasco.

WHAT TO DO

]You can spend a month in Mallorca, but here are a few of my personal favorite pass-times.

Explore Palma:

Palma, the capital of Mallorca boasts beautiful architecture and so much history at every corner. One building that is so striking it will catch your eye as you enter the bay of Palma is the main cathedral, Catedral-Basílica de Santa Maria de Mallorca, commonly referred to as “La Seu”. This cathedral was built in a gothic architectural style and remains one of the focal points of this city. Art lovers? Our favorite museum is the Joan Miró Foundation, where you can step into Miró’s studio.

Boat Day:

With many of Mallorca’s most coveted coves being inaccessible by land or involving strenuous hikes to reach, there really is only one option. Secure your sea legs and book a trip with José Ramon. He has boats listed on Click & Boat. His captain is extremely friendly and knows all of the best coves and secret local locations.

WHERE TO EAT

Ca’s Patro March:

A pescatarian dream, popular with the locals, yet a destination for global gourmands.  This unpretentious spot, with few tables and quick service, is located steps from the sea and has views to keep you mesmerized.  Ca’s Patro March is a favorite of food connoisseurs who appreciate the freshness of local produce and fresh fish– the spirit of Majorcan cuisine.  For the intrepid foodies: Try a bit of everything as this is a tapas style restaurant!

El Olivio:

Located on a balcony with breathtaking views, the restaurant run by the talented hands of  Guillermo Méndez allows guests to experience a modern take on Majorcan cuisine, against the backdrop of the hillside village of Deia with the glow of golden hour.  Request a table closest to the edge of the terrace so you can take in all of the views while you enjoy your mouth watering meal.
