Can Simoneta – Mallorca
We love this hotel for its pristine landscaping, stunning architecture and sophisticated feel.
Perched on a cliff top looking towards Menorca, Can Simoneta is an intimate retreat, where all who stay would prefer to keep secret. Part of its magic is its setting – expansive grounds and carefully tended gardens and olives, with just the sound of the breeze and the waves. The rest is the friendly welcome, the service, and the flavours of the Mediterranean captured in the elaborate skill of the head chef. With only 26 rooms and suites, choose from the light and airy colonial style main house with its collection of contemporary art, or the recently renovated beach house, where the beds have a view of the sea and its own pool built into the rock. The most difficult choice you’ll need to make all day is whether to go for a swim or swing in a hammock in the pines.
There are only 26 suites at Can Simoneta, and each one is different. We’d be happy to stay in any of them, as we love how they’re so simply and stylishly designed and decorated, with elements of the land and sea in the little details and the cool interiors. Whether you choose a view over the Sierra de Levante or the sea, you’ll be guaranteed a good night’s sleep in the enormous beds. The double rooms are spacious and light, and if you take the attic room, you can watch the sun rise over the sea from your bed. The Junior Suites all have terraces with comfortable loungers – a special place to relax looking out over the water, whilst the luxury suites are enormous, with their own Jacuzzi on the terrace. If you don’t mind a steep climb, we think the Beach House is a really romantic spot. Here, there are only nine rooms in a beautifully renovated building, with a pool carved into the rocks. Wake up to the gentle lapping of waves and enjoy the breakfast that’s brought down to you.
You may not be tempted to eat out when you stay at Can Simoneta… The food here is modern Mallorcan using local and seasonal produce and is utterly delicious. Make sure you get a table outside overlooking the Med.
Can Simoneta is only for adults over the age of 18.
Treat this place as somewhere to really unwind (and that’s not hard to do), or explore everything this beautiful part of Mallorca has to offer. The more active guest can choose golf, tennis, cycling, waterskiing, mountain biking and hiking, which the hotel is more than happy to book for you. We’d opt for a day on Can Simoneta’s own boat any day! We recommend you hire a car when you stay here, to give you more options. The hotel itself has a beautiful pool, beach access and a Spa with a good range of therapies and treatments.
