Some hotels have it all: the perfect location. Check. Magnificent rooms. Check. A breakfast buffet filled with healthy local produce. Check. And a spa, restaurant and pool. Check, check, check! Alright, we’re talking about La Residencia in Deia, Mallorca. A perfect, romantic, luxurious hide-away. We’re not surprised Gwyneth Paltrow loves this place. It’s chic, but has that cosy local feel to it. And with all the different terraces and buildings, the hotel itself feels like a little old village.
You can wander around for hours, dipping your feet in one of the three pools (one of which is the most beautiful indoor pool we’ve ever seen) or enjoy a wine in the old Olive Press building, now the award winning El Olivo restaurant. The hotel even offers painting lessons by a local artist, so why not try and find your talent while you’re here? Deia surely inspired a lot of writers, composers and painters in the past.
Deia is the starting point for a lot of beautiful hikes, but I’m warning you: when you stay in this hotel, you probably won’t leave the premises. Maybe once to buy a postcard or a souvenir, but other than that you can spend days here without getting bored. I know I wouldn’t!
P.S. To all the romantic guys out there: if you want to surprise and spoil your gal for that special occasion, this is your place. Feel like spending a little less, than Sa Pedrissa on the other site of the village is a perfect alternative.
