Cala Blava, Majorca, Spain
This 24-room club resort is housed in an old military fortress and was restored in 2010 in keeping with its rich heritage and natural surroundings (marine and bird reserves). The old buildings of the fort have been transformed into seating areas where different settings have been recreated with private rooms for exclusive use by the hotel's guests. In the summer the patios are converted into makeshift rooms for enjoying the night. In addition to a reception area with 24-hour reception and check-out services, facilities available to guests include a hotel safe, currency exchange and a cloakroom, as well as a café, bar and a restaurant. Guests can also take advantage of conference facilities and WLAN Internet access. Room and laundry services are offered and there is a bike hire service and bike cellar. Guests arriving by car may use the hotel car park.
This hotel is located in the bay of Cala Blava, in the most privileged area of Palma, and is discreetly integrated into its environment. It is only 20 minutes from the city centre and 15 km from Palma Airport.
The old windows for the cannons, located on the cliff overlooking the Bay of Palma, have been converted into those of spectacular suites with private patios and terraces. In addition to a private bathroom with a shower/bathtub and hairdryer, accommodation units come with a direct dial telephone, satellite/cable TV and Internet access, as well as a minibar and a double or king-size bed. Further standard features include individually regulated air conditioning units, a safe and a balcony or terrace.
The sea and the different bathing areas around the old pier are part of a nature reserve and are privileged corners for enjoying the spectacular blue hues and transparent characteristics of the coast of Mallorca. The spectacular saltwater pool with sun loungers and parasols laid out for use by the water's edge is located on one of the walls of the castle and its water is indistinguishable from the sea and the sky. Guests can enjoy relaxing massage treatments or try their hand at scuba diving and surfing. Those looking to stay in shape can head to the gym for a work-out.
Bed and breakfast stays are available to be booked. A continental breakfast is served each morning, while lunch and dinner may be enjoyed à la carte.
