Luxe Holidays in Mallorca

Yes, Mallorca has had a luxe make over it is no longer the home of the cheap package tour with sun and sangria with a full British breakfast on the side.

So you can either go hiking taking in the full extent of the island after negotiating the Tramuntana many twist and turns or you can enjoy the sand and the sun in a secluded cove.

Mallorca’s luxury villas and boutique hotels vary almost as much as the island itself: there are hip, minimal fincas, traditional townhouses and mountain retreats aplenty. Palma is the island’s self-assured capital, where yachts and cocktails cohabit happily with ancient winding streets beneath the towering, pink-hued Gothic cathedral.

So book in at one of these from the fabulous pick by Mr & Mrs Smith , My personal favourite is the L'Avenida in the mountain-valley town of Sóller , a blend of contemporary interior styling blending with the traditional Spanish style. 


Hotel Can Mostatxins - Rates from (inc tax)£140.58 - (More Information & Booking)

At the heart of Mallorca’s historic Alcúdia Old Town, style is set in stone at Hotel Can Mostatxins. Built into a 15th-century one-time olive-oil presser, the hotel makes a feature of its original mason-built walls, lending a sense of history to each of its eight rooms and a dramatic setting for its grotto-like courtyard and Jacuzzi.

L'Avenida - Rates from (inc tax)£119.28 (Shop Now)

Tucked away on a quiet road in the mountain-valley town of Sóller, this boutique hotel in Mallorca is a breath of cool fresh air. Arty decor and funky lighting play against restored ceiling mouldings and wrought-iron balustrades, giving this 1900s mansion a shot of Ibizan house-party cool. L'Avenida is the perfect location for lazing by the pool, sunsets by the sea, and exploring the jasmine-scented groves of the Tramuntana.

Cap Rocat -  Rates from (inc tax)£257.72 (More Information & Booking)

Make love not war at Cap Rocat’s former military fort, hidden on a cliff in a peaceful pocket of Palma bay. More heritage site than hotel, the fort’s defensive paraphernalia (drawbridge, bunkers, trenches) provide a dramatic setting for pared-down boutique bedrooms, a dazzling infinity pool and two tempting restaurants.

Son Mas - Rates from (inc tax)£229.19 (More Information & Booking)

Son Mas is a 17th-century finca turned boutique hotel just inland from Mallorca’s east coast, set among acres of fruit groves and farmland. Palma’s pulse-racing nightlife is a 40-minute drive away, but this rustic honey-and-cream-hued stay feels cloistered from the outside world – the ideal setting for a relaxing country break. There’s little to do here but drift along in the infinity pool, float out of the spa floral-scented and devour home-cooked Mallorcan cuisine, but that's all the excitement you'll need.


Villa Infinitum - Low season per night from £2,312 - High season per night from £3,651 (More Information & Booking)

Luxury stay Villa Infinitum may make you feel like a certain secret agent; with 180-degree views of Port d’Andratx and the surrounding hills, this thoroughly modern, high-tech hideaway would certainly get gadget-whizz Q’s stamp of approval: pretty much everything within can be digitally controlled. The roof terrace is set for sunbathing; after dark it’s a dramatic spot for leisurely evening meals, and sipping cocktails of the shaken-or-stirred varieties accompanied by your chosen Bond girl (or guy). Three pools – the first infinity with a view, the second a rooftop plunge number, the third indoors with a continuous lap setting – a sauna and a gym will keep you in top form for your next mission… or, emerging from the sea in a pair of bijou swimming trunks.

Casa Duquesa - Low season per night from £1,813 - High season per night from £3,116 (More Information & Booking)

Luxury villa Casa Duquesa is set in 150 acres of elegantly manicured grounds, so guests are guaranteed the utmost privacy. Aside from the landed-gentry-rivalling grounds, there's a lavish pool area (and a uniquely hued green pool), set away from the main villa, with an outdoor kitchen, bathroom, lounging terrace and dining area. The villa has been restored to its former opulence, and it's equipped with all the modern accotrements you could possibly need – including space to land the helicopter, dahling. Casa Duquesa is the ideal size for a blow-out holiday with friends and family: rooms are generously sized and guests have an array of communal spaces to choose from for socialising and sundowners. We're not ones to play cupid, but if you're planning an especially romantic getaway, the villa has its own chapel (hums the Wedding March).
