Predi Son Jaumell Hotel
The hotel is located two miles from the quaint village of Capdepera using its own medieval castle, in addition to the busy seaside resort of Cala Ratjada, and historical landscapes of Sa Torre Cega. The nearest sandy beaches are in Cala Moltó and Cala Agulla, just a 10-minute drive away, as is the city of Artà. Here, crafts can also be bought like the region’s famous ‘llata’ baskets, hand woven out of dried palm leaves. The Artà Caves could be achieved in 15 minutes by automobile as can the Ses Paisses early talayotic website.
It is a fantastic option for golfers, therefore you will find four classes in the region, the closest being Capdepera, only two kilometers from the resort. The space to Palma airport is 46 kilometers and requires approximately 1 hour by taxi.
Style & personality
The historic major building with signature smokey-blue shutters is a portion of a labyrinth of smaller rock dwellings, superbly refurbished and transformed to private suites. Natural materials of timber and glistening stone match white-washed walls, old beams and fabrics in muted colors to make a modern sanctuary of tranquil. Cabinets, lighting and decorative baskets made out of palm leaves are utilized to impact, together with bold artwork.
Service & amenities
Guests are given a warm welcome by general director Susanne Turowski and her friendly staff. Nothing is too much trouble, if it be advocating hiking paths, organising discounted golf green prices, or helping with restaurant bookings. Details thing here, in the free loan of walking sticks and bikes into the supplying of shoe cleanup, cycle storage and free yoga courses.
At the primary building on the top floor there is an open plan sitting area that has a little library of novels where cake and tea can be served. Within the broad, aromatic gardens is a heated infinity pool flanked by a terrace of pristine cabanas along with loungers. Al fresco massages can be ordered. Beyond the gardens would be the resort’s orchards and areas of locally grown produce, such as a vineyard. There’s a fairly chapel in the grounds, perfect for small weddings, and two openings: an early corn-threshing circle and Bronze Age caves. A big private parking space is located adjacent to the resort.
You will find 24 individually styled and spacious suites — 18 juniors and six backyard suites – most with big, tranquil terraces. Space 25 is outstanding, being constructed into stone and place in its own terraced garden with back forest views. The modern décor includes exposed rock walls, wood floors, cloths in creams and beiges, and cozy furniture.

There are two chief tasting menus, the five-course ‘Cuina de la Terra’ priced at $58 (#51) or the eight-course ‘Sensaciones’ at $74 (#65). A book trunk on wheels functions as a portable pub, rustling up tasty home-cured gin and vermouth cocktails. There’s a great collection of local and global wines, even though the restaurant features its own remarkable Genestral tag.
Warm, homemade bread served on warm stones using olive oil instills beautifully imaginative appetisers and motivated dishes like miniature calamari stuffed with oysters served with green peppercorn sauce, or lamb, marinated for 24 hours, followed by truffle foam and hot rice. Moorish homemade cherry ice-cream with sesame and liquorice biscuit could be rounded off with a much too tempting choice of cheeses.
Exotic lunches, and suppers of barbecued fish and meat, and rice dishes, are served in Senzill Restaurant, situated beneath a fragrant pergola from the gardens. The buffet breakfast served 8-10.30am comprises freshly squeezed orange juice and independently prepared egg dishes.
