Castell Son Claret
Your Castle Awaits
What it is
A 19th-century countryside castle.
What it isn't
On the ocean. The inland setting is ideal for hiking, cycling and soaking in the stunning views, but the closest beach is a 15-minute drive.
What we think
If we could tailor-make our dream Mallorca vacationland, this checks every box: a fairy-tale castle on more than 325 acres of exquisite grounds (inhabited since ca. 1450), blissful massages (the alfresco garden massage is accompanied by the chirping of birds), and an on-site restaurant, Zaranda, with fiercely locavore menus by Madrileño chef Fernando P. Arellano. All stays include familia-worthy handling: You’ll be greeted with housemade lemonade, cava and fruit upon arrival; morning breakfasts overlooking the Tramuntana Mountains, including breads baked on-site, are gratis. The jealousy-inducing spa has a saltwater pool, hammam and ice fountain, plus treatments that use estate-grown lavender, almonds and olives to make you feel born anew.
You're here because
You’re looking for a secluded, quiet Mallorcan escape, and are more interested in gastronomy and wellness than beach time.
After a long flight, you’ve never felt happier than in you do right now in your suite, where the Mediterranean sun bathes your crystalline plunge pool—and the surrounding fields of lavender—in cinematic light.
