“A luxury adults-only hotel on Mallorca's east coast, with 30 spacious suites, 2 infinity pools, fabulous food, and wonderful gardens by the sea”
Although there are plenty of golf courses and beaches within a short drive, Pleta de Mar is really a place to stay put. You'll find plenty of hidden corners to read and relax – but not so tucked-away that one of the cordial staff can’t bring you a cold G&T. Both honeymooners and couples will appreciate the child-free tranquility. New in 2018 to the Mallorquin hotel scene, Pleta de Mar is already a star, and we loved its calm, classy vibe.
- All you need for a romantic, relaxing holiday; you could happily hole up here for a week
- 2 gorgeous infinity pools - one facing the ocean, the other set in wildflower gardens - plus a heated plunge pool by the spa
- The spacious suites have soothing interiors filled with muted creams and exposed beams
- The excellent Foc restaurant has an impressive Mediterranean menu, as does sister property Can Simoneta's restaurant - located 200 metres away!
- The extensive gardens surrounding the hotel are truly gorgeous, further adding to the sense of privacy
- The hotel's private beach (Albardans) is more of a rocky outcrop, not always suitable for swimming; but you can walk through their sister hotel to a sandy beach
- It's very quiet – you’ll have to travel for lively nightlife
- Drinks and other extras are pricey

The 30 suites are white, single-storey blocks scattered about the lush grounds of what was once coastal farmland. Their airy style is minimalist, Scandi-chic: beamed bamboo ceilings, oak flooring and blonde wood furniture. Cream-coloured linens drape the beds; curvy marble baths are set on stones. All have grassy terraces, some with views through trees to the sea. Wonderfully, the suites have indoor and outdoor showers - a rarity for Mediterranean hotels.
We love the pretty garden of the Privilege Suite, with its ivory Balinese bed. For those who want to soak as well as sit, the Premium and Superior suites have outdoor hot tubs. The bedroom and lounge are separate rooms in the Luxury Suites - these are larger, with floor-to-ceiling windows and pebbled courtyards.
Even more spacious is the magnificent Gran Suite, a standalone villa with its own pool overlooking the ocean.

Mornings start with a substantial buffet breakfast. Along with fresh fruit, yogurt and cereals, expect Spanish cheeses, cold cuts and Mallorquin salads. Individual egg and crepe dishes are served at your table, on the long terrace by the main pool.
For other meals, the hotel’s Foc restaurant has a la carte menus of Mediterranean fare. Generous cuts of meat and whole fish are the main focus, grilled over wood-burning ovens – 'foc' means fire in Catalan. Wok bowls, pastas and paella are offered at lunchtime. For dinner, we like the sound of grilled seabass or the dry-aged Galician ‘Vaca Rubia’ (Blonde Beef) for 2.
The wine list is international and there’s a garden bar that serves cocktails until dusk. Guests can also stroll over to next-door sister hotel, Can Simoneta, for supper – its clifftop restaurant has views over the Bay of Canyamel.
