Cap Rocat Hotel, Cala Blava
Straight out of the Arabian Nights... If it was not for the spectacular view of the bay of Palma, Mallorca's most impressive luxury resort might make you feel as if you were in Morocco. The Cap Rocat is a former military fortress directly on the waterfront that has been converted into an exclusive suite hotel. Antonio Obrador, the celebrated architect who masterminded the conversion, turned bullets into door handles and gun carriages into tables. Despite the martial ambience, the 30 suites and the ravine-like narrow alleys are the very essence of tranquillity. To keep the unique fortress peaceful and recreational, guests are discouraged form bringing children under the age of 14.
