Zafiro Palace Andratx, Mallorca

Opened in 2020, Zafiro Palace Andratx is the newest addition to the Zafiro Hotel collection and located in one of the UK’s favourite holiday destinations, Mallorca. Just a 35-minute drive from the capital city of Palma, the hotel is set amongst the Tramuntana Mountains, with panoramic views of lush forest and glimmering blue sea. A family-owned business, Zafiro hotels feature considerate design and an immaculate attention to detail, offering guests various packages, including the popular, redefined all-inclusive version. There are several à la carte restaurants to choose from, ranging from Mediterranean fusion to Asian cuisine and a steakhouse, each offering exceptional contemporary and creative dishes. The personality of each restaurant is reflected in the interior design whilst also blending with the modern and natural feel of the rest of the hotel; each also has an outdoor terrace from which to enjoy the picturesque views. In addition, there’s a separate drinks bar serving signature cocktails, a poolside drinks truck, a healthy food truck and a swim-up bar.

All accommodations at Zafiro Palace Andratx offer guests either a private pool or jacuzzi, if not both. Couples and families alike can be housed in the suites, while the private pool is the perfect oasis for all. The hotel staff are endlessly welcoming and amenable to all requests, with guests able to download the Zafiro Hotels mobile app, from which room service requests can be placed. Options include a floating breakfast at your private pool: a unique and utterly romantic experience. Several pools are also spread across the grounds, including a large multilayer infinity pool and an adult-only sky pool. Surrounding each pool and throughout many of the outdoor spaces are decadent Balinese day beds; you can even find beds submerged in the water or hanging on a swing. This is arguably the most comfortable and indulgent way to soak up the sweeping Mediterranean landscape and peaceful atmosphere at Zafiro Palace Andratx.

As if this wasn’t relaxation epitomised, the hotel houses its own spa with sauna; Turkish bath; indoor pool and treatment rooms. The spa treatment menu can be found on the Zafiro Hotels app, with facials, massages, and body treatments as well as manicures and pedicures from which to choose. We couldn’t resist indulging in a massage during our stay and felt immediately relaxed by the talented staff and their use of gorgeously scented, high-quality products. Not only was this the perfect way to unwind, but it was clear that the treatment was also focused on benefiting the skin, body, and mind.

Golf de Andratx, an 18-hole championship course with the same marvellous views as the hotel, surrounds the premises. A short stroll from here is the golden sandy bay of Camp de Mar, which is positioned between two rocky headlands, which makes it feel particularly private. This tranquil beach has clear, calm, and shallow waters, as well as loungers equipped with safes and a handful of shops and restaurants.

You might not want to tear yourself away from the secluded and exclusive area of Andratx, but those wanting to explore more of the island have plenty of options – and Zafiro Palace Andratx is happy to assist with arrangements. During our stay, we headed to the nearby old town of Palma de Mallorca for a tour of the historic Gothic Cathedral, guildhall, and baths, admiring the famous architecture before stopping for an authentic tapas lunch at Colmado Hispania. Palma boasts a range of wonderful shops and restaurants, alongside a mix of local boutiques and luxury brands. From here, you can visit one of Mallorca’s most-loved attractions: the old wooden train to the town of Sóller. The journey is incredibly scenic, passing through the mountains, orange groves and olive trees. We headed deeper into the village to Can Det Olive Oil Press House, where we enjoyed an authentic olive oil tasting experience, learning about the traditional production of olive oil from the 17th generation family-owned business. We also participated in a workshop at the Capvespre Centre, making marmalade from locally grown oranges.

If you wish to venture further inland, be sure to visit the Bodega Son Juliana Winery, which proudly produces high-quality wine with Mallorcan notes from its organic vineyard, sustainably powered by wind and solar energy. It’s clear to see the passion that goes into each bottle of wine as you tour the winery, learning about the production with a generous tasting and charcuterie board – and the setting, backed by the spectacle of the Tramuntana Mountains, is breathtaking.
