7 suite spots - inside the best luxury hotels in Mallorca

Some occasions call for style and grandeur. Nowhere is this truer than with luxury hotel suites where the space, balconies, terraces and decor will define your next opulent stay.

On Mallorca, they come in all shapes and sizes, often as a result of the age and heritage of the building and the uniqueness of the layouts.

So if money is no object and you’re looking for a premium getaway to Mallorca here is a round up of seven of the islands very special suites.

Creu de Tau Art and Spa

Situated in Capdepera in the far north east of Mallorca, this converted 19th century convent and adjoining theatre is a very special addition to the collection of luxury hotels on Mallorca. Offering a selection of suites, the Suite Royal is the most exclusive.

Located on the second floor with 38 m² spread out in, the room extends outside to a 50 m² terrace equipped with jacuzzi and Balinese bed for you to stretch out on and take in the views of the historic and picturesque town of Capdepera.

Hotel Pure Salt Port Adriano

A seriously stylish hotel in the Mallorcan luxury scene. Set above a sandy bay and the fashionable Port Adriano Marina that attracts the rich and famous in their yachts, it offers superb facilities for golfers, spa lovers and swimmers and those that like to hang out with the cool crowd.

Their Adriana Suite is larger than many apartments at 115 m²  offering a living room, a spacious dressing room and a bathroom. Plus of course a private terrace with jacuzzi where you can relax while admiring those fabulous Mediterranean views.

Castell Son Claret

Time to imagine for a moment you belong to royalty and are heading to your castle. At luxurious five-star Castell Son Claret, set amid pristine parkland, with its fairy-tale crenelated towers and imposing driveway of towering palms, your arrival is like no other. If you are banished to the tower here, its time to celebrate !

There are two Tower Suites each has its own spacious balcony, a sunbathing spot or sundowner spot from which to take in the views over the estate gardens and Tramuntana Mountains beyond. With large living room, dining table for four, a sofa bed, a master bedroom and the chicest of bathrooms complete with marble bathtub, you can sing away to your hearts content with their “Teufel” sound system !


Zafiro Palace Alcudia

The sophisticated five star Zafiro Palace Alcudia brings something quite new to the island. A hotel offering luxury accommodation with a dedicated family focus, outstanding child-friendly facilities and flawless service. At the same time, so cleverly designed is this chic retreat set in acres of space, that singles and couples will also feel cosseted and very much at home.

If you are aiming high, then book the Owners Suite. 165 m²  of luxury, leading out onto your private terrace with jacuzzi, shower and Bali bed from which you can survey the entire property and the breath-taking views of Alcudia beyond.

La Residencia – A Belmond Hotel 

This is the grande dame of Mallorca’s country-house hotels and high on Europe’s ‘must stay ‘ list. Belmond La Residencia delivers outstanding 5 star service to all visitors which include presidents and pop stars yearning for privacy.

The vastness of the property, a mix of centuries-old buildings in the foothills of the Serra de Tramuntana, an art gallery, two artists’ studios, four restaurants, two outdoor pools and tennis courts, the list of amenities is endless and of course it offers a range of hotel accommodation.

But it is the recently designed Matthew Williamson’s Suite that really hits the mark. His acclaimed fashion label offering his trademark lively colours and playful designs have become permanent feature in Suite no 67. A huge and happy place, this casita style suite even has its own bijou private pool !

Cap Rocat

Set in 88 acres and stretching along the coastline for two kilometres, this former military fort is much more than a hotel, it is an architectural and environmental conservation project.
Drawing in the rich and famous from around the world for its secluded position, you will be wowed at every turn by the open courtyard lounge, the golf carts that whisk you from pool to spa or Sea Club restaurant to your suite.

All rooms have a magic touch but none more so than the Sentinels suites on the edge of the cape’s cliffs. Snuggled into the rock like secret enclaves, they have been splendidly transformed from what were surveillance points controlling the entrance to Palma Bay into the most elegant rooms. There is nothing between you and the blue of the Mediterranean whilst you lie in the total privacy of the infinity plunge pool.

Son Brull Hotel and Spa 

Formerly a 12th-century monastery, this 5 Star peaceful hideaway in the hills enjoys complete privacy and idyllic views, thanks to its elevated position and extensive grounds. Huge swimming pool, state of the art spa and fine dining at the in-house restaurant mean you never need to leave. But if you do, the hotel’s bicycles will take you into the old town of Pollensa in about 15 minutes.

The recent addition of the Villa Suites offer space and privacy in their secluded setting away from the main hotel building. Seamlessly combining modern Mallorcan architecture with all the services of a 5 star hotel. With two bedrooms, two sleek bathrooms, private garden with stunning valley views and your own heated swimming pool. On cooler nights, you can cosy up around the fireplace in the living room and enjoy the star-lit Mallorcan skies from the floor-to-ceiling windows. Heaven.

So many to choose from. Which will be your favourite ?

When you hear the word “suite” you want to feel a sense of space, a unique offering, a higher level of comfort, personalised details and service. Luxury hotel facilities plus your very own suite should take you a notch or two higher. The problem is – you’ll never want to leave !

    Once you’ve enjoyed the comfort and space of a suite it’s very hard to go back to a standard hotel room.

    • Deirdre O'Connor says:

      I know what your mean Jean…hard to put the genie back in the bottle…but I think we all need a treat at the moment…!

  2. Eileen Barclay says:

    A difficult choice to pick out one of these. I’d probably go for La Residencia as I’ve never been disappointed by the Belmond properties. Their service standards are impeccable.

  3. Jim says:

    I can’t believe that I’ve never done Mallorca. Reading this I’m beginning to realise what I’ve missed out on.

    • Deirdre says:

      Wow Jim you need to get your suitcase down at the first opportunity! Presidents and pop stars and many many more have passed through Mallorca and now it’s your turn Jim. You will be smitten.

  4. Laura Cotton says:

    This looks like another world, like pages from a fashion mag doing a holiday photo-shoot. It’s so long since I’ve travelled and had a holiday that I think I’ll have forgotten what to pack and forgotten how to relax on a sun-lounger. Dressing for dinner, if it ever happens, will be such a treat.

    • Deirdre says:

      Thanks for your kind comments Laura. As I was writing the blog I was dreaming. Seems crazy now when I look back at the airport scrums to get on board. All crushed together. I am sure you won’t have any problem relaxing. It’s like riding a bike ! We all just need to get back on the saddle.

  5. Ellen says:

    Never mind the suites this post could have been about those tempting pools or the rooftop bars!

    • Deirdre says:

      Tempting aren’t they. So lucky in Mallorca to have so may luxury hotels to choose from ! The bar has been set very high in recent years. All MallorcanTonic clients are happy with the selection I have made for the website! Time to start planning!

  6. Jeff G says:

    At 115 square metres the Adriana suite is probably bigger than the first one bedroom flat that I bought. Got to say it looks really, really comfortable.

  7. Andrew says:

    Mallorca really does luxury well. The type of suites featured here is diverse in a way that some offers more luxe outside spaces while the others are more invested in the interior. Nonetheless, these are exceptional choices especially if you are fond of spending the day under the sun.

  8. Deirdre says:

    Well said Andrew.
    Of the 60 or so luxury hotels in Mallorca we feature it really is so hard to compare.
    The standard has been set so high over the last decade that each hotel new to the market has to exceed it ! And we are the lucky recipients.

  9. Rachel says:

    We’re hoping to get to Mallorca late September once the edge has gone off the summer heat and when there’s less threat of air traffic disruption, sir traffic controllers’ strikes etc etc

    Really glad that I found all your posts on Mallorca. As we’ve never visited the island before they’ve helped us build up a picture of what the island has to offer and how we could enjoy it.
