Cap Rocat, a Small Luxury Hotel of the World is a carefully renovated former military fortress offering luxurious 5-star accommodation. A building originally designed for defence carved out of its sandstone depths. The fortress of Cap Rocat was never used for the purpose for which it was built and at present, it is the architectural complex for the hotel. Cap Rocat is known for his wonderful views of the Mediterranean Sea and the Mallorcan countryside. Cap Rocat is located in a quiet area of the Bay of Palma, near Cala Blava. It seamlessly blends into the landscape of this Protected Natural Area and has the privilege of having use of the waters of the marine reserve of the bay, an area known for its Posidonia meadows and its wealth of biodiversity. The property provides direct access to the beach and has an outdoor pool and sun terrace. Cap Rocat is also a Special Protection Area for Birds (SPA), which lets us enjoy the spectacle of the flight of many species across our skies. A building declared a Heritage Asset and listed as a National Monument. Respect for the cultural and natural heritage of Mallorca.
The refurbishment transformed the austere communal rooms of the fortress into relaxation areas where modern and contemporary harmoniously coexist with classic and historical, and in which different ambiences and private rooms have been recreated for the exclusive use of the guests. Small houses in the Mallorcan style, carefully restored and located within a private area and a Mediterranean garden. Outside, there is a small overflow pool and a large terrace with hammocks, as well as a table and chairs for breakfast, lunch or dinner under the porch.
The luxurious and fascinating Cap Rocat, formerly a 19th century military fortress, has been imaginatively transformed into an exceptional boutique hotel with two swimming pools and restaurants. In addition to the large infinity pool flanked by comfortable loungers with a library for guest use, there is a 24-hour gym, private cinema, bar, shop, and spa set in an old limestone water reservoir, available at an extra cost. The Turkish culture of water and body wellness is epitomised by the spa, which is located in the most secluded and sheltered nook of the fortress found 12 m. below ground level, slim seawater pool with a magnificent skylight, yet enjoying perfect natural lighting. There are also tennis courts and a fitness center with personal training service. Yoga, Pilates and personal training sessions are offered along with a number of Ayurvedic massages and treatments. The indulgent Hammam Ritual experience, including hot steam, deep cleansing, and aromatic soap massage, is a must-see.
Cap Rocat offers guests the chance to discover and enjoy the essence of Mediterranean and Mallorcan cuisine at both La Fortaleza Restaurant and the Sea Club. Close to the rugged coastline and the forest, it is a haven of unequaled peace, offering complete privacy.
