Castell Son Claret, Calvía, Mallorca, Spain
Escape from the hectic pace of modern daily life at Castell Son Claret: an oasis of relaxation, where you’ll find a unique combination of gentle silence, breathtaking nature and inspiring indulgence.
the foot of the impressive Tramuntana Mountains, Castell Son Claret is a
secluded 19th-century Mallorquín mansion set on a rambling country
estate with traditional Moorish gardens. Now transformed into a refined luxury
retreat from a state of near-ruin, each of the 38 palatial rooms and suites is
unique – some with Juliet balconies, others with their own gardens, and all
with oodles of sumptuous style in warm neutral tones.
Heady scents of bergamot, grapefruit, orange, jasmine, roses and coriander – as well as freshly-baked break from the on-site bakery fill the air as you sip iced tea and fruit-purée shots at the pool, lose yourself in the grounds, take a stroll to the spa, enjoy a game of tennis, or take one of the meditation, yoga or Qi Gong classes. Chef Fernando Perez Arellano likes it here so much he relocated his Michelin-starred restaurant, Zaranda, here; and it's the perfect base for exploring the mountains and local villages.
