Whether you looking to recharge with a peaceful break away or to escape the kids (grown up ones included!) on a tranquil romantic holiday, we’ve rounded up our favourite adults-only retreats in Mallorca.
Our adult only holidays are all about total escapism and luxury, with the only sounds being water gently sploshing in the pool, the tinker of glasses as drinks arrive or waves lapping on the sand.
When all you long for are endless sea views, the warm Mediterranean, delicious food, welcoming staff and a peaceful hammock to lull away the hours, the coastal hideaway of Can Simoneta delivers. If you’d like to stay right on the beachfront, then choose a Beach House Suite, where you are just steps away from the sand and soothing sounds of the sea.
For pure unadulterated luxury, you should head to Cap Rocat. The former fortress has been converted into a stylish, secluded five-star hotel set in 88 acres and with 2 kms of private coastline, complete with a private beach and steps leading into the sea.
All the spacious rooms and suites are set apart with their own private outdoor spaces. For further seclusion, certain suites also have their own private pool.
There is no need to set foot outside the grounds as there are also two restaurants serving delicious food – our favourite being the shore hugging The Sea Club with firewood oven and grill.
Sa Pedrissa perches, overlooking the stunning coastline of mountainous North West Mallorca. With tasteful rooms and suites, our favourite rooms are the newly extended Suites with Sea view with sleek modern lines or the Grand Suites with their own private pools. There aren’t any bad view points from this adult only small hotel as it’s either views out across the sea, the coast or up into the mountains. The hotel is run by a small team of dedicated staff who endeavour to make your stay as comfortable, relaxed and enjoyable as possible. It has the added benefit of sitting on the edge of the upmarket, bohemian village of Deia filled with an array of quality eateries.
Further into the mountains, on the edge of the picturesque village of Fornalutx sits the stylish adults only aparthotel, Sa Tanqueta. This offers the freedom of self-catering with the benefits of a hotel – with a delicious breakfast spread served each morning to guests. Views from the modern apartments look out across sweeping views of the valley and onto the pretty pool and terrace.
If there are times when you don’t fancy making dinner, there’s also a good selection of restaurants to wander down to in the village.
Situated amongst orange groves, just a 10 minute stroll from the pretty old town of Soller is Cas Curial. This finca hotel oozes traditional Mallorcan charm as the old farmhouse has been sympathetically converted into a tasteful adult-only escape complete with old antiques.
The terrace and pool areas are peaceful spots, where the clinking of ice cubes and the rustling of turned book pages account for most of the noise.
Font Santa Hotel and Spa
If you’re a spa afficado, Font Santa is a must. With the only thermal spa on the island, this is essentially a spa extended into a luxury adult only hotel. This serene spa leaves you no option other than to unwind amongst the tasteful neutral furnishings. The exteriors are equally well thought out, with spacious poolside terraces decked with comfortable loungers. There are also tucked away areas complete with private jacuzzis and blowsy double day beds. This hotel also has a highly respected restaurant, offering fresh local produce and wines. The spacious, light filled rooms and suites are tranquil soothing boltholes, perfect for a good nights sleep.
Pleta de Mar
This ocean fronted hideaway sits just 200 metres up the coast from its sister hotel Can Simoneta (previously mentioned). With the same ethos, this five-star adult only retreat aims to offer luxury combined with the beauty of the natural landscape. Located high overlooking the Mediterranean, with two infinity pools, a beautiful Spa, private sea access and sumptuous suites, this is the ultimate romantic and tranquil hideaway.
Es Corte Vell
This 10-bedroom, small adults-only boutique hotel sits in the heart of the authentic, pretty village of Bunyola. With easy access into the mountains and Palma, it makes an ideal base for exploring and for active types. For those that want to stay put and relax, the terraces, pool and outdoor jacuzzi offer a peaceful backdrop.
All the rooms are light, airy and spacious but if we had to choose, we’d go for one of the superior rooms, located on the top floor with their own roof top terrace, outdoor jacuzzi and stunning views.
Creu de Tau Art & Spa
Creu de Tau is where art and relaxation collide. This is perfect for empty nester couples looking for a different holiday experience. Formerly a convent, this luxury small hotel has stylish, art filled interiors, an extensive pampering spa plus a restaurant offering delicious local produce. One of our favourite spots for unwinding is the pristine, tranquil pool area with stunning views across to the historic village of Capdepera. If you’re looking for indulgence, go for one of the Royal Suites which sit on the top floor with their own roof top terrace, day bed, outdoor jacuzzi and beautiful views.
