JETSET EXPERIENCES: Inspiration abounds in Mallorca

Mallorca is a truly beautiful island. In some places, it still feels as fresh as if the world had just been created.”
~ Joan Miro, 1948

Fly into Palma and begin your scenic journey across the island of Mallorca to the northern foothills and a town called Deia. From the moment you land, you’ll find yourself reaching for your camera to capture the verdant mountains cascading down to the emerald sea. The views will take your breath away as you witness the waves colliding with the sharp jagged coastline… and that’s just on the airport transfer!

As you continue northward, you’ll soon reach the charming town of Deia, where the tranquil Belmond La Residencia is located. One of Spain’s finest luxury boutique hotels, this romantic and glamorous retreat is set in a dramatic landscape between the Tramuntana Mountains and the glimmering Mediterranean Sea. The property sits on 30 acres of olive and citrus groves and was originally created out of 16th and 17th century traditional manor houses. The setting is truly magical.

Over the centuries Mallorca has cast its spell on numerous writers, artists and musicians. Its varied, beautiful landscape and soulful character cannot help but inspire you in similar fashion.

At La Residencia your days can be spent:
– Relaxing at their award-winning spa.
– Joining a guided trek with donkeys to nearby secluded mountains for a four-course Mediterranean picnic.
– Sailing by private boat along this UNESCO World Heritage coastline.
– Mountain biking through the thrilling tracks around the property.

Wherever your day takes you, concluding it with the culinary delights of one of the finest restaurants in Spain, El Olivo, is not to be missed.
