The international airport is a short drive away.
The well-equipped and spacious Bodyna spa is a tucked away space that you simply have to visit. Whether it is raiki, Ayurvedic, Thai or aromatherapy, the experts here have it covered. Innovative beds make you feel as though you are floating during your massage, while the sauna, hammam, Jacuzzi and tranquil garden are the ideal places to relax.

Designer furniture and subtle artworks conspire with classical balustrades and historic references in this chicly designed property. These superb contrasts are combined with beautiful views of the garden, mountains and sea and natural sunlight that spills into all the rooms and suites. Splash out on a room with its own zen pool, exposed stonework or spacious living room.
Famous for its cathedral, La Seu, Palma has numerous treasures to explore. Spend your afternoons along the luxury shopping artery that is Jaime III, or admiring the works of genius at Es Baluard Modern and Contemporary Art Museum. Lounging at the beach or by the gorgeous pool looking out to sea are highly advised, while the Nautic Club of Cala Nova is a mere two minutes away on foot, and the Bendinat Golf Course just a few minutes’ drive. Ask staff to book boat trips, watersports, fishing and more.
Home to some of Spain’s finest fish and seafood, Mallorca has all the ingredients to satisfy your palate. Restaurant Maricel takes these and uses them for creative dishes that are matched only by the expansive views from the terrace. Dine on grilled scallops with eggplant ravioli, wild gilt-head bream and meaty dishes like rolls of confit pork roast with crispy skin and vanilla oil.
