The adults only Font Santa hotel and thermal spa is the perfect sanctuary for those looking for total rest and relaxation. This is a peaceful place, with the added attraction that Es Trenc, one of Mallorca’s most beautiful beaches is on its doorstep. Soothing and immaculate neutral furnishings are used throughout the spacious and light filled buildings. This, combined with attentive staff, gives the hotel an atmosphere of understated luxury.
Surrounded by countryside and with views to the Es Salobrar salt flats, the hotel has been created with precise attention to detail both inside and out. There is a fabulous outdoor pool surrounded by loungers, and our favourite touch has to be the private Jacuzzi areas complete with double day beds.
One of the main draws of Font Santa is the thermal spa, which is the only one of its kind in Mallorca. Romans used to bathe in the mineral rich therapeutic waters, followed by the locals who in the mid- 19th century built a spa so they could indulge in the hot waters. The original atmospheric spa buildings are now part of Font Santa Hotel, so guests can continue to enjoy Mallorca’s only natural hot springs. The 38 degree water powers a circuit which includes indoor pool, individual bath rooms, jacuzzi and vaporium.
The hotel’s well received restaurant is also not to be missed. Housed in a pretty building with original beams and arches, it boasts a large terrace that looks out towards the salt flats. The dishes are imaginative and of the highest standard, so definitely worth a visit or five! Breakfast is in the same league, with a delicious array of local produce, along with a hot breakfast menu where the pancakes are of special note (served with honey or for real indulgence, chocolate).
The 25 rooms are all individual and are light, airy and furnished in simple yet luxurious neutral tones. The beds are huge and comfortable and some rooms have the added romantic touch of a four poster bed. Each room has its own terrace with loungers so guests can enjoy their own privacy.
