This 19th-century former military fortress has been imaginatively transformed into a luxury boutique hotel by architect Antonio Obrador and is set in a nature reserve on the Bay of Palma, just 15 minutes from the airport.
This makes this location perfect for a weekend getaway, spoiled by the tranquillity and beauty of Mallorca’s coastline with a stunning blend of ancient Moorish citadel features combined with fine luxury hotel architecture to offer you everything you need.
As soon as you arrive and are greeted by the multilingual, friendly staff in elegant linen uniforms (designed by Little Big India), you’ll feel like you’ve come to the right place.
Actually, you don’t even have to leave this place, although the town of Palma is only a 25-minute drive away, but you might want to just stay in your sea front villa or on the roof deck of your room to relax and let go.
While you are there many things can be done to relax and balance your well-being. From a traditional hammam treatment at the hotel’s spa with hot steam, deep cleansing and massage with aromatic soap, to spending the day at the hotel’s private beach swimming in the turquoise waters.
Enjoy breakfast in your room that will be served in a basket of breakfast goodies before maybe getting a bike or snorkelling to get active.
Yoga or Pilates lessons are complimentary for guests and take place every morning at 9 am.
Visit the Sea Club for lunch (and dinner) right by the shore for an excellent Mediterranean cuisine. Or more formal at night; La Fortaleza that offers Mediterranean gastronomic cuisine using organic, locally sourced ingredients with an impressive selection of wines available, including C’an Xicatlà, a limited-production, moreish local white wine.
This small luxury boutique hotel has only 26 beautifully designed suites and two superior suits right by the sea.
The architecture of this former sandstone military fortress, which has been converted into a comfortable and chic living space, offers a special experience with its wide underground labyrinth ways, the large stone bridge and the huge crenelated gates.
