Hotel Cap Rocat
, Ctra. d'Enderrocat, s/n, Cala Blava, near Palma.
Cap Rocat, a stunning luxury hotel, has been created from a former 19th century military fortress, situated on a secluded headland with commanding views across the Bay of Palma. Set in 88 acres, and with 2 kilometres of private coastline, the magnificent citadel has been totally transformed, yet retaining the integrity of its architecture and the natural environment.
At the centre of the fortress the massive buildings house restaurants, lounges, terraces and patios. Built along one of the vast stone walls the salt-water infinity pool is a place where the water meets the sea and the sky, with uplifting views of crystal clear Mediterranean. Nothing has been forgotten in the quest to provide the ultimate in luxury and personal attention.
Down near the shore the Sea Club has been created in the secluded “Cala de la Reina” cove providing all the privacy that guests may desire, with its own relaxed open-air restaurant. Further along there are more quiet little spaces near the former jetty and pier where guests may enjoy sea, sand and solitude.
Scattered around the expansive grounds, the suites are built into more of the original military installations, each with its own private patio and terraces.
Unquestionably, Cap Rocat is set to become the number one hotel for the most discerning visitors to Mallorca.
For safety reasons and due to the unique architecture of the fortress, Cap Rocat cannot accept reservations for children younger than 15 years old.
Cap Rocat’s cuisine is based on seasonal Mediterranean products sourced from local farms. Guests can enjoy the highest standards at the Sea Club or in the Fortress Restaurant.
They can also experience a private dinner in a unique setting; all sorts of magical spaces are available for private dining. A small group might choose the private patio of the guest's suite, while a larger party might opt for the old fortress kitchens, the Moroccan Lounge or just perched on a huge gun emplacement where they can watch the sun go down while enjoying some of the best food that Mallorca can offer.
Breakfast is served on the private patios of the suites or in the main courtyard.
