I just got back from a weekend away in Mallorca in Spain over the weekend. I was invited to go with my beautiful girlfriend Tania from thelondonthing.co.uk to discover a beautiful new hotel by the beach.
The direct flight from London was only 2.5 hours to Palma. Being from Australia, this feels like such a luxury to be able to be in a beautiful location on an island off Spain within 2.5 hours! I’m so used to having to travel at least 7-8 hours to get to Asia from Sydney. We left some very chilly weather in London and arrived in beautiful sunny Mallorca – about 25 degrees (that’s around 77 Fahrenheit)! Perfect for a swim and skimpy outfits to recharge the tan!
We got picked up at the airport in a big black Merc – stress-free transit, just the way you want it to be. The hotel has only been opened since June this year so all the facilities are brand new. We arrived and got greeted by friendly staff that took all of our bags and ushered us to the bar where we had a couple of glasses of Dom Perignon as our welcome drink. The view from the bar is stunning – overlooks a secluded little beach and its blue waters. I felt instantly relaxed and happy!
My room was the Executive Seaside View. The room was spacious with a huge balcony overlooking the water. I decided to have a bath that night. The tub was too big not to try.
An afternoon drink at Astir restaurant is a must. I think we got a little hooked on toasting the view and for some reason ended up with Champagne in our hands the entire time! But it was a great place to celebrate life, I was happy to do it over some bubbles and great company x
Dinner was amazing and I would recommend the scallops with wild asparagus salad (amazing), and I had the smoked cod to follow – awesome.
Don’t forget to book in for an amazing spa at the hotel for some downtime. I had a full body massage and a pedicure. Love that they do your pedicure while lying down! The steam room and sauna area is absolutely stunning. Check out the pics below.
Also if you are feeling lazy, I would recommend ordering breakfast in bed one morning and enjoying the view from your room.
Make sure you go and explore Palma. It’s an absolutely stunning seaside town with amazing shopping! A great holiday always includes great shopping!
I think Mallorca is the perfect place to holiday in Autumn. LOVED IT!
