Stay at the Castell Son Claret
Revel in the pure glory of mother nature, at a retreat that resembles a slice of quiet paradise. This is rustic glamour at its finest. Enjoy 326 acres of pristine parkland. Unwind to verdant views of hills that deliciously roll on.Founded in 1450, the estate unwraps like something from a dream. Crenelated towers extend the mirage. Spot them as you roam through lush vegetation, on your way to restorative aromatherapy and a volcanic massage. The scents of Michelin-starred flavours greet you next. They lead to the courtyard, where intimate conversations and enchanting tasting menus await. Served with a side of country splendour, you really are in for a treat.
Situated at the foot of the Tramuntanas mountain range, the hotel enjoys an inland location amongst rolling country hills. Expect excellent remoteness, and a number of hiking and cycling trails. And yet, central Palma is still reachable within 20 minutes.
Of the property’s 38 opulent rooms and suites, 23 are housed in the main building. Beautifully appointed, the remainder are scattered across seven historical buildings within the grounds. All stays are spacious, with balconies, terraces, patios or even private pools.
Who is it for
Though children are welcome, the charms of this nature-encompassed estate are perhaps more suited to couples and adults searching for a slow and calming escape. Families with younger kids may therefore prefer a seafront alternative.
Amenities & Activities
The rural resort gives way to a superb spa, complete with hammam, sauna, ice fountain and heated salt pool. Within the grounds lie a large panoramic pool, tennis court, gym and jogging track. More impressive still is on-site restaurant Zaranda, which boasts the only two-Michelin-starred joint in the Baleares.
