This stunning, turreted 13th century castle sits on a hillside overlooking the bay of Palma. Once inside, the magnificent interior will take your breath away. Adorned with Spanish works of art, every room at Castillo Hotel Son Vida exudes luxury.
Not surprisingly, pampering is high on the agenda at the Beauty Spa. Indulge in a variety of sumptuous treatments, ranging from Reiki and aromatherapies, to massages and personalised spa programmes. In addition to the range of health and fitness activities, the resort offers superb golfing opportunities, such as the spectacular Son Vida Golf Course. Renowned for its stunning views of the Bay of Palma, the course is the oldest on the island. Elsewhere, gourmet feasts await discerning diners, both in the imposing dining room of Es Castell and the sophisticated Es Ví restaurant.
For those who want to explore, the centre of Palma is a mere ten minutes away, with its shops, boutiques, museums and galleries. Or for more intrepid adventurers, mountain helicopter trips and private yacht charters can also be arranged.
164 lavish rooms and suites beautifully combine the grandeur of the setting with modern comforts.
Guests at Castillo Hotel San Vida have the option to dine at the two onsite restaurants, as well as at several other island restaurants, thanks to the Dine Around service. Sample sumptuous Majorcan flavours and tasty tapas at the sophisticated Es Ví restaurant, or choose Es Castell for a wonderful range of Spanish and international delights – the Saturday night Mediterranean buffet is a must. Afterwards, sip a distinctive whisky in Bar Armas, or head into nearby Palma de Mallorca for a lively nightlife scene.
The following morning, wander down to the refreshing outdoor swimming pool, shaded under palms and pines, then spend a luxurious afternoon being pampered in the Beauty Spa. If you fancy something a little more active, then the Health Club is the place to go. Here you’ll find a 24-hour fitness centre complete with personal trainer, four tennis courts, a Jacuzzi, sauna and steam bath, and more swimming pools. The hotel is also a paradise for children, thanks to the excellent kids’ club, while keen golfers will love the superb golfing opportunities, such as the spectacular Son Vida Golf Course.
