A converted 17th-century manor house in the hills above the valley of Deià, this peaceful hotel is known for its traditional sense of luxury. Rooms are spacious and classically furnished, and most have private balconies with stone balustrades and stunning views. Acres of gardens have secluded corners, with deck chairs under the orange trees, bamboo groves, and ancient olive trees, and from everywhere you can hear the sound of water tumbling from a mountain spring. A shuttle
bus runs four times a day to the hotel's private cove at Sa Muleta, where there's a cliff-side solarium and lounge deck. Just down the hill from the main building is the excellent Ca'n Quet restaurant, with prix-fixe dinner menus from €35. Book a room early here: about half the clientele come back year after year.
