Sunny Spain

By Sandra Ramani / January 19, 2018

The Spanish island of Mallorca is awash in natural splendors, from its rocky Mediterranean shores and fireball sunsets to the olive groves, vineyards and orange orchards that dot its valleys. You can enjoy it all from a base at the clifftop Jumeirah Port Soller Hotel & Spa, where local products are celebrated in the restaurants, local artwork and materials are featured in the décor, and views of the sea, port and UNESCO World Heritage-protected Tramuntana Mountains can be enjoyed from everywhere—including the sleek spa.

The Talise Spa is spread out over two floors: the top features a glass-walled sauna, salt therapy chamber, steam areas and an outdoor hydrotherapy pool from which you can look out over the mountains and a yacht-filled marina. In the therapy rooms, get scrubbed with nourishing olive seeds or detoxifying/toning orange extracts, wrapped in Mediterranean herbs, and massaged with extra virgin olive oil infused with essential oils. Several services rely on products from Mallorcan brand BC Skin, based on homegrown ingredients like honey and almonds.

Want more local? Ask the hotel to organize a visit to Eco Vinyassa, the island’s only organic orchards, and wander through the lush grounds, taste fresh fruits and veggies and learn more about the healing properties of these natural products.
