I’ve recently come back around to the idea of Mallorca, the largest of the Balearic islands off the coast of Spain. Long derided as package holiday resort and eclipsed by its clubby neighbour Ibiza, Mallorca and especially its very funky capital, Palma, are back.
This hotel will only add to the islands burgeoning hotel scene:
The island-loving jet set of Europe now has a new Mallorca hideaway. Cap Rocat, on a protected promontory on the southern flank of the Bay of Palma, is a 19th-century military fortress that has been converted into one of the region’s more remarkable hotels. Twenty minutes from Palma, the sprawling structure is almost completely buried and all but imperceptible from both land and sea. Only the canopies of the lounges on the terrace are visible on the horizon.
