Cap Rocat , Cala Blava, Spain
As USPs go, ‘former military fortress’ is up there with the best. And if you’re looking to go off radar somewhere that’s full of rustic character and a sense of history then look no further – Cap Rocat is just the place.
Modern and slick from the bottom up, not a jot of this architecturally-unique building was ruined when it was transformed into one of Mallorca’s most wonderful holiday experiences.
Add to that its location in Palma’s most secluded spot, with all the luxury you could wish for in the most dramatic of settings and you get the picture.
Your suite occupies what was previously a shooting pad (again, not many hotels can say that!), and comes with a private patio and terrace.
For the sporty, there's tennis, yoga, cycling and watersports. And dinner here is an event, whether it's gourmet cuisine at La Fortaleza or more relaxed fare down by the water at the easy, breezy Sea Club.
