Serene and authentic, the citrus-rich valley town of Soller is found beside its neighbouring port in Majorca. With excellent road and rail links to the island’s capital city of Palma, it’s easily reached, yet feels further off the beaten track than many of Majorca’s busy resorts. The waterside end of the municipality has one of the prettiest harbours around, while inland, mountain ranges provide an entirely different, yet equally beguiling spectacle. Two gorgeous beaches – Playa d’en Repic and Es Traves – make it suitable for a sun, sea and sand holiday too. The local market (in the town itself) and the vintage tram rides are well worth making time for too.
Jumeirah Port Soller Hotel And Spa
Built upon a high rock escarpment overlooking the fishing port village of Port Soller, with exceptional views out across the Mediterranean, Jumeirah Port Soller Hotel and Spa brings world-class levels of hospitality to Mallorca’s rural west coast. This is a captivating resort, with upscale dining; elegant and contemporary accommodation; as well as luxury wellness facilities including the Talise Spa – a destination for Balearic rejuvenation. This part of Mallorca is particularly picturesque, with a beautiful coastline; and the charming inland villages of Soller and Fornalutx close by. The Jumeirah Port Soller Hotel and Spa is made up of almost a dozen structures that climb the rock escarpment, and continue for about a kilometre. Each is linked by a scented garden walkway that leads guests up through the terraced hillside setting. There is a magnificent infinity pool with Mediterranean views, served by Infinite Pool Bar. On the upper level is Es Fanals by Javier Soriano, for signature Spanish cuisine. For relaxed terrace dining, Cap Roig Brasserie offers a locally-inspired menu. To end the day on a perfect note, The Sunset Lounge is where guests enjoy Asian specialities and superb cocktails, accompanied by life music and views of the Tramuntana Mountains and of course, the best sunsets on the island.
