King of the Castell

Sleeping Like Royalty on a Spanish Isle

None 10 Photos Castell Son Claret
Your life would’ve been so different in the Middle Ages.

There you’d be, frolicking around your castle and plucking fruit from the gardens and just generally getting treated like royalty.

Actually...  maybe it would be exactly the same.

Give a regal welcome to Castell Son Claret, a 500-year-old castle turned hotel in Majorca—taking reservations now for its May opening.

Imagine the medieval version of the mansion in Scarface. Comically long driveway. Towering palm trees. Turrets where knights once fended off any would-be pillagers. That’s this place. The only difference between this and Tony Montana’s: you’re on a Spanish island in the Mediterranean, not in Florida. (And there’s slightly less contraband in-house.)

Your first order of business: request one of the old horse stables. Thankfully, they’ve been swept up a bit. Even more thankfully: they’re now acting as suites with private pools and gardens. From there, you’ll stroll right out into 325 acres of UNESCO World Heritage–certified olive groves and mountains, and get right to the trail-exploring. Or the orange-picking. Or none of the above, and just lounge by the pool.

As for sustenance, there’s an in-castle bakery and a Michelin-starred restaurant that just moved in from Madrid. As for the hotel bar: it’s inside a centuries-old chapel.

Because drinking should always be a spiritual experience.
