The 5 Best Destinations in Mallorca for a Relaxing & Private Holiday


Mallorca has a very mixed reputation; there are some areas that are known for their party atmosphere and vibrant nightlife and other areas that are perfect for families. However, it is often overlooked for its more luxurious and traditional locations.

The island has some beautiful Mediterranean architecture that offers a glimpse into Mallorca’s rich and illustrious past. It is these areas that can offer any traveler a luxury, private getaway to remember. Below are just a few of the destinations to consider when looking for a quiet and relaxing time away on the beautiful island of Mallorca.

Es Llombards
A beautiful little village with a classic charm, Es Llombards is perfect for those looking for a quiet holiday in a more traditional destination. With luxury villa holidays from Premier Villas offering you the perfect accommodation, you could explore this sleepy little town at your own pace and just enjoy your time away.

Another beautiful village filled with cobbled streets and golden brick houses. Fornalutx is nestled within the hills above Soller and is a peaceful haven away from some of the busier tourist spots on the island. If you’re looking for the very best in luxury near the village, then the luxury hotel Can Verdera can offer comfortable and stylish rooms for you to rest after a day of exploring.

If it’s a more cosmopolitan and contemporary luxury you’re looking for, then look no further than Mallorca’s capital, Palma. Combining rural architecture with modern, urban buildings, you can enjoy the best the city has to offer. Why not book into one of the many boutique hotels, like the Boutique Hotel Can Cera and enjoy the very best as you sit back and relax in the warm Mallorcan sun. When arriving at Palma de Mallorca airport, be sure to prebook a stylish airport transfer to your destination with Solhop and beat the queues at the taxi rank.

Alcúdia is a popular spot for those looking for the very best. The ancient town lies just a short distance away from the coast, giving you access to both the beautiful village and golden coastline.

If you’re looking for a unique hotel experience, then head to the town’s Hotel Can Mostatxins. A fusion of Gothic and modern architecture, this luxury hotel is a must visit for anyone staying in the region.

With crystal blue waters and stunning cliff faces, Santanyí is one of the many jewels of the island. Take a stroll around the colorful markets and pick up some fresh fruit and veg to enjoy during your stay. The Meliá Cala D´or boutique hotel is the perfect accommodation for those looking for a luxury vacation in a more modern environment.

Why not choose Mallorca for your next getaway and discover some of the hidden beauty that lies within the island. There are plenty of boutique hotels and villas, ranging from rural and cozy to modern and stylish, so there’s something for everyone no matter what your taste!

    Mallorca looks so gorgeous! I’ve never been as I’d always assumed it was party central, but I guess I’ll have to give it a second chance 🙂

    I’ve only been to Mallorca for work (many many years ago) and therefore only saw (a little of) Palma, where the office was located. I’d love to see and stay in some of the villages on the island, like Es Llombards and Fornalutx.

      Both of those villages are great, Kavey!

    I really wanted to visit Mallorca when I was in Spain, but ran out of time. I can see how much I missed out on. I love the cliffs at Santanyi.

    These all sound like such lovely places, but I think I’d pick Santani! The waters and the cliffs are so pretty, but any destination where I can see a sunset like that has me sold!

      You’re so right, Miranda! I love a beautiful sunset 🙂

    Mallorca is somewhere I definitely need to go back to! I was there last summer visiting my Mallorcan friend and stayed with him and his girlfriend in Palma. They took us to the little mountain town of Valldemossa and we loved it! It definitely looks similar to some of these places, and it was all so quaint and not crowded at all!

    Mallorca looks so dreamy! I especially loved how everything is made of cobblestone on your picture of Fornalutx. And the sunset at the end…beautiful! Hope to visit one day.

    Wow, it all looks amazing but Fornalutx would be the place for me. The photo you have here just sold it straight away. Cobblestones….sigh! Mallorca definitely looks like an incredible place to visit. Thanks for all the tips.

    Thanks for the wonderful selections! We hosted an exchange student from Madrid whose family had a second home in Mallorca so she was always sharing great stories and photos with me. Looks like a lovely place to visit. I need more Spain in my life.

    What delightful looking towns! Especially the ones with the beautiful charming cobble stoned pathways. Spain has a certain charm about it doesn’t it! Mallorca looks beautiful – especially Santanyi and that water!
