From the moment it opened in 2010, Cap Rocat became a standard bearer for simple Mediterranean luxury. The inspired and sensational transformation of the 19th century sunken military fortress into a true hideaway was an instant hit. Now Cap Rocat introduces three extraordinary new rooms - The Sentinels – which will give a whole new meaning to “a room with a view”.
The three spaces were originally surveillance points hewn into the rock face of the private peninsula on which Cap Rocat stands, overlooking the Bay of Palma. Designer Antonio Obrador, who was responsible for the rest of the hotel’s interiors, has worked his magic to create three sensationally elegant rooms that blend the rough rock of the walls with delicate woods, handmade rugs, pebble details, soft local fabrics dressing the King size beds - and large mirrors reflecting the golden light from the sea. Each one has a private terrace, integrated into the cliffs, with Plexiglass walls for heart-stopping views over the sea, a plunge pool and outdoor seating area for al fresco breakfasts hand delivered in baskets brimming with fresh jams and local breads. Relax on the daybeds and indulge in the feeling of truly being away-from-it-all.
Stays at The Sentinels at Cap Rocat, from €900per night, based on two sharing on a B&B basis.
