Total tranquility at Hotel Cap Rocat

The magic of staying in a fortified citadel

There’s nowhere else like this on Mallorca: a former military fortress that’s been converted into a unique five-star hotel, with a commanding and secluded location in the Bay of Palma. Many of the striking original architectural features have been retained: you can sleep where the military used to – but in rather more style than they did!

Former shooting pads have been converted into Cap Rocat suites, each with a private terrace. Splash the cash and stay in El Cabo or Del Mar (close to the beach) – both suites have their own garden, terrace and pool. Everything is understated but luxurious. Breakfast brought to your room in a hamper and set out for you. And golf buggies to ride around on!

There are two restaurants: The Fortress and, on the waterfront, The Sea Club, where a wood-fired oven and grill are used to produce food that’s perfect for alfresco dining.

Cap Rocat has fantastic views, especially from the infinity pool. And when only the Mediterranean will do, head for the small beach, with its loungers. Put yourself in the hands of a therapist in the Mirador treatment suite, for some real pampering.
