Luxury bespoke holidays and tours to Pleta de Mar, Mallorca

The five-star deluxe Pleta de Mar is situated on the eastern side of Mallorca, not far from its sister property, the Can Simoneta. With fantastic sea and countryside views in every direction, the Pleta de Mar is a resort that prides itself on the completeness of its feeling of luxury and the excellence of its facilities. A private beach makes the secluded location on the south-facing side of the Mallorca that bit more exclusive, allowing you to enjoy the warm climate, the golden sand, and the sea in complete idyllic privacy. This sense of intimacy continues in the guestrooms, each of which has its own shady garden space, which is not overlooked by any other rooms, and a furnished outdoor terrace. Spacious living areas follow a muted, neutral colour palette, given character by the wooden beams on the ceilings and the unique rustic art installations. Some higher category rooms are set on multiple levels, which serves to emphasise the space. En-suite bathrooms are light and bright, with interesting features such as soft pebbles around the bath tub and large windows out onto small walled planted areas. Before retiring to your room at the end of the day, dine in the resort's fine restaurant. El Asador de Mar is a steakhouse that specialises in fresh meats, fish, and seasonal ingredients, set amidst gardens beside one of the resort's swimming pools, and housed in a single-storey building that seems to capture a sense of history, rusticity, and authenticity. Alternatively, the hotel can help organise dinner at the Porxada Restaurant at the Torre de Canyamel. On board the Chris Craft 25 boat, guests of the Pleta de Mar can explore the Mediterranean from a new perspective; alternatively, hire a mountain bike or follow the hiking routes to venture further inland. The hotel spa and wellness facilities include a vast menu of massage and beauty treatments, a sauna, outdoor hot tub, and a wellness area. These services come together to complement the natural beauty and peacefulness of your surroundings. The infinity pools at the resort are another tranquil place to relax, with cushioned loungers around the edge and wooden loungers on a shallow step within the pool. The Pleta de Mar resort is a first-class, indulgent, adults only destination for those seeking ultimate luxury in Mallorca. It comes highly recommended for stays of one or two weeks, though a stay of a few nights can be combined with stays at other hotels in Mallorca.

About Mallorca and the Balearics

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza feature the best four and five star hotels on each of the islands, including prestigious hillside properties, beach hotels and boutique retreats. Lying around 100 miles from the Spanish mainland in the Mediterranean Sea is Mallorca (otherwise known as Majorca), the largest of the Balearic Islands and an incredibly popular destination for tourists. With sun, sea and sand in abundance, the island's attraction as a beach holiday destination is obvious. However, step away from the beaches and you'll find rugged mountains, picturesque rural villages, hilltop monasteries, extensive underground caves, pretty harbours and much more. The islands of Menorca and Ibiza capture the dynamic landscape of Mallorca but on a more intimate scale. Our tailor-made luxury holidays allow you to discover the very best of the Balearic Islands. In the southwest of Mallorca is Palma, a seaside city with an abundance of historical and cultural sights. Dominating the island's west coast are the Tramuntana mountains, where pretty villages sit amidst olive terraces, terraced farmland clings to steep slopes and rugged cliffs drop away to the sparkling sea. In eastern Mallorca is a smaller mountain range which gives way to sand dunes and remote beaches, whilst the unspoilt scenery of the south includes nature reserves, secluded coves and charming fishing villages. The centre of the island is home to a fertile plain, an area with ancient windmills, vineyards and sleepy market towns which offer a glimpse into Mallorca's rural traditions. With a number of interesting towns and villages, stunning beaches and a great variety in the natural scenery, the Balearics are outstanding holiday destinations with plenty of opportunities for activities as well as seaside relaxation. Many of the popular tourist resorts are in the north and west of Mallorca, but there are many places to discover in other parts of the island. The varied terrain provides excellent opportunities for cycling and hiking, with numerous trails which are suited to walkers of all ages and fitness levels. Cuitadella, in Menorca, has an enchanting old town and archaeological sites, while Mahon, the island's capital, is one of the Mediterranean's most picturesque cities. Well-known for its appeal with tourists, Ibiza is also home to a wealth of tranquil coves, lush forests, and small villages which encapsulate the Balearics' laid-back lifestyle.

Olives, almonds and citrus fruit are grown across the island, as are the grapes which are used to produce a selection of white, rosé and red wines. Local specialities in the Balearics include ‘Sobrasada’ (a type of sausage), ‘Arros Brut’ (saffron rice cooked with meat and vegetables), ‘Frit mallorqui’ (fried offal with potatoes and vegetables) and ‘Ensaimada’ (a sweet bun). Local desserts are made with almonds or nougat, and seafood dishes, including ‘Caldereta de Ilagosta’ (lobster stew), are a staple. Speciality spirits from Menorca include Maó Gin, made from juniper berries, and Port. The Hierbas Ibicencas, and Frígola in Ibiza are aromatic drinks built around aniseed and thyme respectively.

Climate of the Balearic Islands

The Balearic Islands have a typical Mediterranean climate with hot, dry summers and mild and stormy winters. There is some variation across Mallorca as the Tramuntana Mountains protect the southwest of the island. Average summer temperatures are around 25 degrees, when seas are also warm and a cooling breeze prevents excessive heat. Spring and autumn are great seasons to visit as temperatures are pleasant but there are fewer tourists, although nights can be cold and there is some rainfall. Average temperatures in winter are around 10 degrees with occasional showers and snow falling in the mountains.
