Cap Rocat leaves you with nothing but admiration at the ingenuity on the part of Spanish architect and owner Antonio Obrador in transforming this former 19th-century fortress set on an 88-acre coastal site overlooking the sweeping Bay of Palma into this unique retreat.
What was a decommissioned military base, and essentially an area of rocky headland ( Cap Rocat), has now been tranformed into one of Mallorca´s premium luxury hotels.
Mindful of preserving the history of this unique site, one of five such fortresses around the Bay of Palma, the renovation has been sensitive incorporating as many of the original features as is possible into the fabric of the hotel.
On arrival through the fortress gates, made of Mallorca´s emblematic honey-toned marés sandstone, you are wowed by the sheer scale of the property and, at the same time, feel cocooned by its location, invisible from land and sea.
The only giveaway are the canopies of the rooftop loungers on the terraces that are visible on the horizon.
The accommodation comprises 2 double bedrooms and 27 suites, most of which were originally cannon emplacements, but no expense has been spared in the luxurious furnishings and decor, huge walk-in bathrooms with double sinks made from single pieces of stone. You will feel truly spoilt.
All rooms have private outdoor spaces such as terraces or private gardens on which guests are served their signature ´hamper´breakfast.
In the public areas, you are welcomed in the cooler months by two magnificent drawing rooms, each with huge roaring fires, comfy armchairs and sofas.
The owner has taken meticulous care with the decor, ensuring a constantly evolving display of artefacts such as ceramics, the odd medieval helmet, and exotic Moroccan rugs, all of which offer a truly Mediterranean feel, complementing those endless Mediterranean views from this cliff-top position.
Outdoors, you will find the infinity salt-water pool with panoramic views and a small sandy beach ideal for snorkelling and, as you are staying in a Nature Park, you are offered the chance to see some rare bird and sea life.
The original defensive structures such as its drawbridge, bunkers and trenches will secure you from the outside world and allow you to be pampered from within in this unique hotel.
Undeniably is has to be the Fortress kitchen. With it´s huge open fireplace, where the huge cooking pots would have hung, it´s original serving dishes and its enormous stone sink, it is amazing to think that this kitchen would have produced meals for up to 1,000 soldiers.
Now completely refurbished in typical Mallorcan style, it offers a private dining room where guests will be invited to enjoy an evening of tapas, prepared by Chef Victor Garcia and his team.
You can while away an evening with your fellow guests, chat about your day in a truly relaxed and dinner party style. There are also wine tasting evenings organised here and the area can also be booked for private functions.
It has to be the suites.
Once surveillance positions, the Sentinel Suites are now private enclaves literally carved into the rock each with its own plunge pools and sea view from your bed!
Your signature ´breakfast hamper´ can be served on the secluded terrace and you don’t even have to change out of your pyjamas!
In addition, there is the new ´ El Cabo suite´ taking its name from the Cape where Cap Rocat was built. It has vaulted ceilings, light Mediterranean furnishings and huge bathroom, designed for wellness giving you the impression that you have your very own private spa!
Outside you can enjoy the private pool and three different terraces, crowned by a gazebo where you can lounge at your leisure.
Located in the large dining room, the cuisine changing with the seasons, this restaurant is based on traditional Mallorcan recipes that only a Chef of Victor Garcia´s calibre can give.
Located on the waterfront, in the spectacular “Cala de la Reina”, the Sea Club is an open-air restaurant, hugely popular locally, which offers dishes cooked in a traditional Mallorcan firewood oven and grill.
