Cap Rocat, in Spain, is a romantic Majorca hotel offering excellent snorkeling, a saltwater infinity pool, superb service and a fabulous cliff-top location, near Palma. The fortress, in the honey-toned local marés sandstone, was dug into the cliff at the end of the 19th century and was transformed in 2010 into the sumptuous sanctuary it is today. Invisible from both land and sea, it is a secret citadel enclosed by ramparts and turrets.
There are two rooms and 27 suites, most of which are individual structures that were originally cannon emplacements. New from this summer are the three Sentinel suites, which are set into the cliff away from the main buildings, overlooking the Bay of Palma. They are refurbished by the Spanish architect Antonio Obrador. With their own plunge pools and sea view from the bed, the Sentinels are very romantic indeed. Also new is the large El Cabo suite in the fortress building, which is filled with artworks and also has its own pool.
Cap Rocat has two restaurants. The Fortress restaurant is situated in one of the main pavilions and serves Mediterranean inspired cuisine. Whilst in summer, the Sea Club, set at sea level with glorious sea views, offers alfresco dining from the firewood oven and grill. For special private moments, the hotel sets up private dining tables and tents with views of the Bay. Service is paramount at Cap Rocat, with small details taken care of to create a unique experience.
For those wanting room service, a generous breakfast can be taken on the suites private terrace, arriving via picnic hamper and set up at your table.
With such a high level of room options and service, Cap Rocat is a unique luxury experience that is perfect for those looking for peace and indulgence right by the sea. Suites start at £350, including breakfast.
