A real-life fortress turned hotel, Cap Rocat (@cap_rocat) is an inimitable Mallorca sanctum that reels in luxe tourists from around the globe. Set in the Bay of Palma — just south of the island capital — the resort hosts 26 rooms, many located in the fortress itself; the others, sculpted into sandstone precipices that steep into the Mediterranean Sea. The Moorish citadel-like structure is dressed in beige tones, which act as a foundation to recent refurbishments intentioned to exhibit a confluence of historical and modern styles.
Atop the craggy cliffs is also The Sea Club, a restaurant with royal blue patio furniture that matches the water it overlooks; the perfect place to dive into the delightfulness of traditional Mallorcan dishes.
If you love an Insta-worthy pool, then you will be in heaven with the selection that awaits on property: there are outdoor pools, private plunge pools, and a hallmark indoor one. Photographed by every influencer who stays at the resort, the latter is long and narrow, where it’s hugged by sandy-hued walls and roofed by a high-ceiling atrium. Wellness is taken to the next level with the spa’s Turkish-style hammam and variety of nourishing treatments — we love the Ayurveda specialties, a 5,000-year old, Indian-birthed system of natural healing which integrates environment, body, mind and spirit.
All rooms are a respite from any outside worries; but, if there’s no budget involved, you can catch us in the ‘Sentinels.’ Originally defensive positions for cannon-fire in the olden days, they are built into the cliffs and privileged with private patios that serve as a breathtaking vantage point to the sea; interiorly, they are just as beautiful, with wooden ceilings, rough-hewn stone walls, and marble floors.
