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 at Cap Rocat 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 of Cap Rocat 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. If you fancy a run into Palma just 20 minutes away then plan your day with the Visit Palma website.
Dining you can choose La Fortaleza located in the large dining room, or The Sea Club restaurant located on the waterfront, in the spectacular “Cala de la Reina” . All reservations for lunch or dinner at The Sea Club receive a complimentary glass of cava in low season. Just click the link above.
Undeniably is has to be the new spa. And this isn’t just any old spa. It is truly unique. The architect has had to work within the parameters of the fort and boy what an amazing job, with it´s central point being the dramatic seawater pool sunk some 12 metres below ground level. Treatment rooms and tented relaxation area are the icing on the cake.
Your treatements can even be taken outside to drink in the therapeutic mediterranean air.
You can easily while away hours here in a truly relaxed environment.
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.
