The island of Mallorca has always been special to me since our family spent a few amazing vacations there when I was young. Far away from the touristy places and Ballermann parties the beautiful Spanish island has so much to offer. Stunning secluded beaches, scenic routes, small restaurants and turquoise water. What’s not to love? Even though we already spent Easter on the island and I was there for a job in May, Mike and I couldn’t wait to return for a 3rd time this past weekend. He booked the flights in April on the spur of a moment during a Sunday Super Sale and paid a mere 104€ + a few miles roundtrip for both (!!) of us. We didn’t really have a plan of what we wanted to do or where we wanted to stay, but we were excited about a long weekend to unwind. When I then received a newsletter about the brand new Park Hyatt on Cap Vermell by the idylic valley of Canyamel on the North-Eastern side of the island, we decided to give a totally different part of the island a try.
For the Easter trip with the entire family (17 people), we booked a huge finca by Soller and in May I stayed close to Port de Pollenca in the North. Cap Vermell is just about as far from Palma as you can get (ca. 1 hour by car) and the perfect place to relax. The Cap is home not only to the Park Hyatt Mallorca, which I’ll tell you more about later this week, but also to a super cute boutique hotel by the beach (rates start around 130€) dating back to 1934 with a restaurant that is great for a lunch down by the water, residences, stunning vacation rental villas, a club house that will open later in the summer and 2 golf courses in close vicinity. It also seems to be a popular place of retreat for others, such as the soccer legend Carlos Puyol who was vacationing there with his model wife and adorable daughter, or Brioni creative director Justin O’Shea (formerly with mytheresa) – both were staying there at the same time as us. But see for yourself:
