Fortress of Good Fortune
What it is
A stone fortress turned luxury hotel on the Bay of Palma.
What it isn't
Family-friendly. An adults-only policy enhances the private, romantic atmosphere.
What we think
If infinity pools that seem to blend into the Med, airy suites carved out of cliffs and fortified citadels, and a saltwater pool 40 feet below the earth’s surface (and lit by skylight) aren’t enough to lure you to this property, consider the service. Staff of Cap Rocat employ the type of cosseting usually reserved for celebrities (Catherine Zeta-Jones was here!). If you’d like a torch-lit dinner on the sand or a deep-sea fishing trip with a local master, consider it on your agenda. The honey-pink sandstone structure contains 29 rooms, many of them with old cannons on their private terraces. Warning: Like giving up the throne, it’s not easy to leave.
You're here because
You want a sexy, intimate escape on the water, and a design that combines the centuries-old with fresh modernist lines.
After a sun-swept day of scooting around the inlet on a sailboat, dinner under the alfresco shades at the Sea Club—where each dish is grilled to order over Mallorcan firewood—is the perfect conclusion.
