Cap Rocat Hotel

Where to Stay in Palma de Mallorca
July 17, 2019

Why we recommend it:

If you are looking for an almost child-free, secluded and romantic hotel in Mallorca that is not part of an international hotel group, Cap Rocat is for you. The atmosphere is serene, elegant and supremely chic. You feel like you’re stepping into a Moorish fortress, except with all of the modern-day amenities. The rooms are huge (by any standards) and design-focused – hand-woven carpets, stone floors and massive beds that guarantee a lot of uninterrupted sleep. The hotel itself is a vacation. 

We especially like the common areas in the hotel, like the library where you would actually hang out when the sun is too hot, to chill and read a book. The restaurant is gourmet and unique from those in Palma, as it’s a destination for those not staying at the hotel. It’s fancy food, in a very grown up and romantic atmosphere. The service is also excellent. 

The highlight of the hotel is the spa. Although it’s below ground, it is a light-filled, deeply relaxing space, with several outdoor gardens and atriums. The relaxation room is massive and the treatments are all about relaxation and well-being. Plan to spend some major quality time, whether or not spas are your thing. 

What to know:

With its secluded location, you’ll need to rent a car or hire a taxi to get anywhere on the island. This is also a romantic hotel; it may not be the right fit for large, boisterous groups. The décor is particular and design-chic, though you have to be into the stone flooring and fortress-like feel.
