Hospes Maricel & Spa Hotel 

Every bit as beautiful as it first looks

Head to this romantic retreat on the water’s edge for award-winning cuisine and a superb spa set in a cave.

This sandstone and marble mansion is one of Mallorca’s most exclusive hideaways. Its outdoor pool almost drops into the Mediterranean and the spa is set in atmospheric caves by the waves. Wild sea bream and Balearic wines lure you into a splendid restaurant whilst springing off the hotel's jetty into the sea is enough to tempt you out.

Why we love Hospes Maricel & Spa Hotel

  • A palatial hotel with magnificent sea views.

  • The award-winning breakfasts – no menu, no buffet, just fresh seasonal ingredients every day.

  • A late night massage to the sound of waves under the stone arches of the spa.

  • Just a 20-minute drive to Old Town Palma’s maze of shops and restaurants.
