Mallorca, the grande dame of the Balearic Islands, has been a favorite destination for Germans for ages, with its dream beaches, luxury harbors, top events, and countless bars and clubs. Just around the corner from turbulent hotspots and only a stone's throw away from beautiful Andrax, we find exclusive seclusion between castle stone, style and elegance, the postcovid newly opened Castell Son Claret.
A dream of castle stone and light
The life in the hotel refuge Castell Son Claretist pure pleasure of a simply unique Ambient from style, beauty, peace and exclusivity. On the 132 hectare estate lies this dream of a castle-like, breathtaking building from the 19th century. Century. The historic, beautiful main house of Son Claret, one of the Leading Hotels of the World, with countless high imposing halls, its 41 spacious rooms and suites, terraces, stone vaults and patios has now been reopened postcovid and expanded with four newly designed, elegant poosuites.
Recharge your batteries between the Tramuntana mountains and the pool in the castle garden
The hotel is located in the middle of the spectacular nature of the Tramuntana mountains in total seclusion and tranquility. And this, although the touristic frequented Andratx is in direct neighborhood. Whether in the enchanting, artfully landscaped spacious gardens, between the imposing pool and the lovingly designed paths and pavilions, in the spa, in the bar or at the candlelight dinner: Here the guest at Son Claret finds everything you need to really switch off and refuel.
Mi Casa es tu casa – 5 stars feel at home
"In still-Covid times, the generosity and location of our house is ideally suited to implement the "Distancing" without great felt restrictions," explains hotel director Björn Spaude. His extraordinary hotel staff is virtuosic, witty, eloquent, discreet, yet seems almost omnipresent. And all this with a lot of personality, elegance and attention to detail. Spaude relies on a top crew of rarely experienced class, which creates a perfect blend of 5-star luxury service and a true feeling of being at home.
Hotel Castell Son Claret: hotel staff with personality
The linchpin is also Anette Hoej Andersen, Sales & Marketing Director of Castell Son Claret. The elective Mallorcan from Denmark is always ready with the best ideas for any guest. She manages the innumerable events of the house from culinary, cultural events to label presentations.
Still, they can be seen jogging along one of the surrounding country lanes early in the morning at eight o'clock, as well as having a nightcap at the castle's spectacular bar in the evening.
Culinary at Castell Son Claret – a philosophy of its own.
A new world-class gastronomy presents itself with Jordi Cantó and his "Sa Clastra". An elegant restaurant in the historic courtyard of the hotel. Cantó, a young Mallorcan top talent with gourmet experience and a lot of personality, impresses here with his interpretations. The cuisine is inspired by creations from all over the world and Mediterranean cuisine. The "Olivera" under the direction of Chef Pep Forteza creates for its part a culinary spot of a special kind. Pep Forteza uses local herbs and spices in combination with freshly caught fish from Mallorcan waters and meat and vegetables from local farmers.
Pick your own coffee at the cocktail bar
And speaking of island-grown herbs: Bar manager Roberto Muscaridola, an Italian native of a small village near Naples, can be found on the Castell grounds during the day armed with a basket, knee-deep in a sea of plants. There he picks rosemary, mint, all kinds of spicy flowers, fruits from countless lemon, orange or almond trees. "It all has to be freshly harvested and blooming in the jar," explains Roberto. What the pine trees, fig trees and olive groves offer is reflected in the aperitifs and cocktails.
The bar is located in the former prayer chapel of the estate. Bottles of whiskey, gin, cognacs and liqueurs from all over the world and the best wines of the island now replace the altarpiece there. A little tip to finish: Roberto composes never-before-seen non-alcoholic cocktails, where citrus and ginger become protagonists of the senses.
