About the Hotel
Mallorca, Spain is an idyllic island adrift in the Mediterranean, and has long been a popular destination with Europeans. Cradled by the foothills of the Tramuntana Mountains along the island's northwest coast is the spectacular Belmond La Residencia. In addition top its plush rooms and suites, this exquisite hotel hosts an art gallery with a collection of more than 85 works by artists that have all lived and worked nearby. Each unique guest chamber is also a work of art, with some featuring vaulted ceilings and crisp white walls, and others boasting antique furnishings and rough-hewn beams. Spacious suites, including one tucked in a watchtower rumored to have been built by the Templar Knights, are truly magnificent and feature picturesque postcard views.
El Olivo, the hotel's ambient restaurant and former 16th century olive press, features regional fare and international specialties enjoyed by candlelight. Belmond La Residencia has a terrace bar, and also serves a proper afternoon tea complete with traditional scones, clotted cream and dainty finger sandwiches. Recline poolside in a lounge chair and enjoy some refreshing sangria, or head to the tennis courts for an afternoon game. La Residencia Spa features its own indoor pool and menu of carefully chosen treatments that help to relax and soothe. Mallorca is a multi-faceted island, punctuated with rugged hills, shear seaside cliffs, hidden coves, and groves full of plump olives and aromatic citrus. Explore it all while basking in the finest of luxuries at Belmond La Residencia.
