Nestled inconspicuously amongst the olive, almond and carob groves of the Llevant Natural Park, this jewel of a Hotel shines like a diamond in the rough. In the year 1000 B.C., approximately, the Talayotic village of Son Barbassa occupied this same terrain. As you explore the estate, watch your step – you may just stumble upon some of the remaining 3000 year-old ruins! The building itself dates back to the 16th Century; the original watch tower, once used to protect against Moorish invasions, served as the nucleus around which farmhouses were built in later years. All have been lovingly restored and converted into this delightful rural Hotel where peace and tranquility abound.

An innovative mixture of rustic Mallorquín decor with modern, minimalist design create a splendid sense of calm throughout. There are several cosy sitting areas in the house; read a book or simply relax on one of the comfortable sofas. Every nook and cranny has its own special ambience, especially in the evenings when the flickering glow of candles invites romance to an even higher level.

Son Barbassa´s twelve, comfortable bedrooms have been tastefully decorated in soothing neutral tones. Some have balconies with panoramic views, and interconnecting rooms are available for families. All are equipped with satellite TV, telephone, central heating and air-conditioning, hydro-massage shower, bathrobes, hairdryer, safe and internet access.

Breathtaking, panoramic views only heighten the feeling of relaxation and will make your day by the poolside an unforgettable experience. Although not an easy feat I can assure you, perhaps a massage (choose from a variety of treatments) or yoga session will tempt you away from your decadent sunbed!

The restaurant is dotted with tables covered in crisp linen. Breakfast and dinner are also served on the terrace in the summer months. As you sip your wine and contemplate the silence of your surroundings, listen to the tinkle of far off bells as the goat herders return from a long day´s work.

Owing to its priviledged location, guests of Son Barbassa have a wide range of activities at their fingertips. The surrounding natural park is a haven for walkers and nature lovers alike. Bicycles are available from the Hotel and horse riding can also be arranged. For the golfer in you, two nearby courses can be found in Capdepera and Canyamel, both less than 10 minutes by car from the Hotel. The Hotel is situated just 2km from the 700 year-old town of Capdepera, and 5km from the more touristic town of Cala Ratjada where a plethera of water sports are on offer. Meander the dramatic cliffs and picturesque coves of Mallorca´s eastern coastline – an impressive sight indeed.

For those looking to escape the stresses of daily life and completely unwind, this rural hideaway is the place for you.
