Belmond La Residencia
Just a stone's throw from the clear blue Mediterranean, the charming village of Deia and the towering Tramuntana mountains is the stunning setting for one of the world's most renowned hotels, Belmond La Residencia. Two manor houses dating from the 16th and 17th centuries provide a house of real style, charm and character. Belmond La Residencia is situated in the charming coastal and mountain village of Deia, Mallorca - a village which was once home to Robert Graves and which has also been chosen as residence by a number of writers and artists. The village has spectacular views of both mountains and sea, Belmond La Residencia shares these views and visitors can relax here and feel truly far away from the stress of city life. The bedrooms are individually furnished and decorated in traditional Majorcan style. Calm natural tones, crisp white bed linen and curtains that float in the breeze, simple yet elegant, with all the comfort and extras you expect and more. The wooden shuttered windows overlook the lush landscaped gardens, which provide fresh herbs and olive oil for the kitchen, fruits for the homemade morning marmalades and fresh flowers for the rooms. This beautiful sierra offers the island's best walking - follow old paved mule tracks as they wind through wooden valleys, between terraces of olive and citrus groves, and high above the coast. We can also organise walks with a local guide. At regular intervals, classical music concerts are also held in La Residencia, for the hotel boasts possession of a very special and unique Steinway piano dating from 1887. This piano, which had lain in disuse for many years, was purchased by the hotel, fully restored, and re-inaugurated on September 18, 1987, exactly one hundred years after the famous Spanish composer, Albeniz had first inaugurated the instrument. This time, the honour was given to the prize-winning Australian pianist, Jonathan Plowright, who included several works by Albeniz in his programme. The new hotel SPA with 6 treatment rooms, four of which have a private outdoor massage area. More beauty therapists on hand, all trained in La Stone Therapy, reflexology and other spa treatments. An outdoor Jacuzzi with spectacular views over sea and mountains, a sauna, a steam room and a 16 metre indoor pool. La Residencia also proposes a fully-equipped Gymnasium to provide complete workout. Many guests are golfers who take advantage of Majorca 18 golf courses to practice their sport. The hotel can reserve these for clients.
