A former 19th century castle, Castell Son Claret in the western part of Mallorca is nothing short of a fairytale. A long, palm-lined driveway leads to the perfectly renovated castle, where in the distance, the towering Tramuntana mountains set the scene.
It’s a reminder that Mallorca is much more than your beach-lovers looking for a mid-summer break. In fact, there is a whole other side to the island and Castell Son Claret is in the heart of it. Rolling mountains and hills covered in olive orchards and pine trees creates a Tuscany-like ambiance, where travelers can sojourn in a quiet setting. Castell Son Claret brings guests to a destination unlike anywhere else on the island — a place to rest and most importantly, rejuvenate.
A luxury hotel set with the only 2 star Michelin restaurant on the Balearic islands and a stunning spa, it’s easy to see why you really don’t have to leave. Booking with Kiwi Collection is no exception either. Amenities like an early check-in and an immediate room upgrade based upon availability and a bottle of cava to greet, matches the luxuriousness of Castell Son Claret.
Surrounding the castle is manicured rose gardens, perfect for a morning or afternoon walk. Along with the stay is complimentary bikes which make for a great excursion into the nearby towns. Not to mention the large pool that seems to disappear off into the distance, where most guests spend the days under the Mallorcan sun.
Mornings feel surreal as the sun breaks over the mountain and soaks the terrace where breakfast is enjoyed. A la carte options with local dishes like tortilla are paired with a delicious champagne buffet. There couldn’t be a better way to start the day. Later in the day, the terrace transforms to Olivera for lunch and dinner, where food made from local ingredients can be enjoyed as well.
From private pool suites to tower suites, each are set with modern amenities and cozy interiors. In the Deluxe Rooms, the French doors open out to terrace with mountains in the background. Wooden beams on the ceiling paired with white and camel tones, makes the room feel comfortable and spacious — the kind you don’t want to leave. The spa-like bathrooms are the cherry on top, with rain showers and double vanities. Plus the rooms are equipped with plush robes, a woven bag, and sandals to use on property.
Castell Son Claret is for the one looking to be greeted as a traveler and treated like a friend. It’s surely a team that knows service, the kind that will make you return again, that makes this iconic hotel so special.
