Majorca seems to have long shed its package holiday image, and the st. regis Mardavall is a great example of the island’s luxury offerings
The imposing gates of The st. Regis mardavall on the beautiful spanish island of majorca speak more of a wealthy landowner’s hacienda than a luxury hotel, but that’s the key to the charm of this lovely hotel, which sits just outside of the island’s capital, palma.
framed by the Tramuntana mountains, the luxurious marina of puerto portals and the mediterranean sea, the st. Regis mardavall neatly avoids the hustle and bustle of the biggest population centre on mallorca, as well as the hordes of tourists that descend on the island over the summer months.
majorca has an unfair image of a package tour magnet, full of english and german tourists, keen to avoid leaving their home country comforts. and just like any holiday destination, there is an element of that if you choose the wrong location. But majorca has much more to it than just package beach holidays.
outside of peak season the island is a magnet for cyclists, with many of the world’s top teams using its undulating
much keeping with the hotel’s high-end decor found in the public spaces.
You can then work your way up via family rooms, and sea view rooms to the Mardavall Diamond Suite, which features 117 square metres of magnificent décor and hand-made furniture. This spacious one-bedroom suite comes with a 38 square metre outdoor terrace, featuring a private Jacuzzi overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. It also includes a butler from the hotel’s St. Regis butler service.
Spa lovers can pamper themselves at the hotel’s Arabella spa. At 4,700 m² it’s one of Europe’s biggest spa facilities. The spa uses Niance treatments from Switzerland, who specialise in developing luxury anti-aging skin-care products.
For culinary fans, the St. Regis doesn’t disappoint. The star of the show is Es Fum,
