Castell Son Claret, Es Capdellá
A long palm-fringed drive leads the way to this 18th-century castle which reopened as an exclusive resort earlier this year. The romantic russet-hued estate is set in countryside on the north-west shoulder of Mallorca, close to the hamlet of Es Capdellá. Inside, it cradles 38 palatial rooms each with a private terrace or garden, an on-site bakery, spa and a cave-like cocktail bar. A secluded outdoor pool offers a cool reprieve in the high heat of summer, while the Zaranda restaurant shines with one Michelin star.
