Escape to this chic adults-only hotel, a stone’s throw from the sea with an indulgent spa.
This hotel is an excellent option for a therapeutic seaside retreat. It’s on a rocky shoreline overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, just a 20-minute walk to nearby Playa Santa Ponsa. Dip your toes into the water at the indoor and outdoor pools, or treat yourself to treatments including traditional Thai massages and Japanese baths at the Spa Sensations. The hotel is also just a 15-minute drive from the historic town of Calvià, tucked away in the foothills of the Tramuntana Mountain range. Head to the local market and try Pa amb oli, a Mallorcan dish of brown bread with oil and ramallet tomatoes which is a favourite in the island’s beach bars.
Iberostar Suites Hotel Jardin del Sol only has a few places to eat and drink but they’re top quality. Head to buffet La Calma Restaurant and enjoy delicacies including sautéed veal with mushrooms and Galician octopus – it’s a great spot to unwind in the evenings, with superb sea views over Santa Ponsa Bay. For freshly cooked and succulent Japanese cuisine choose Teppanyaki restaurant, or kick back with a cocktail at the all-day Café del Sol Bar. Continue the culinary theme and take advantage of the hotel’s on-site workshops where you can mix cocktails or traditional liquors with Mallorcan herbs.
All of the contemporary suites have swish whirlpool baths and sea views from your private balcony. We recommend upgrading to one of the Star Prestige rooms; here you’ll have exclusive access to Star Prestige Bar’s indoor lounge and outdoor terrace as well as private check-in. You’ll also be able to enjoy free fruit, pastries, juice and sandwiches from the bar and a chill-out space overlooking the Mediterranean, where you can unwind by a private pool with hammocks, sun loungers and Balinese beds.
