Luxury bespoke holidays and tours to Sheraton Mallorca Arabella Golf Hotel, Mallorca

The five-star Sheraton Mallorca Arabella Golf Hotel is set high above Palma de Mallorca on the Son Vida estate. Golf courses, for which guests receive reduced green fees, shroud the landscape on every side, and Palma de Mallorca clusters around the seafront in the distance. From the outside, though a relatively modern building, the hotel has the appearance of a traditional, stately Mallorcan mansion or villa. Pale ochre walls are paired with curved terracotta roof tiles, archways that frame the balconies, dark window shutters, and red wood window frames and pagodas that shelter the terraces. Palm trees intersperse the sloping flower beds, which are lined with rustic sand-coloured stone walls. You approach along a driveway lined with potted plants, trees, and shrubs, with a small, shady sitting area on one side. Inside, the warm Mallorcan colour scheme continues in the high-backed armchairs, marble tiled floors, and striking feature artworks. Sleek chairs, bookcases, and glass tables contrast the beamed ceilings, plush rugs, and additional rattan furnishings. Two restaurants and one bar offer a warm, modern atmosphere and extensive menus of cuisine heavily influenced by Spain and local Mallorcan ingredients. Restaurant Es Carbo is the hotel's main dining venue, with bold contemporary colours paired alongside vaulted wooden beamed ceilings and arched windows. Here, you can enjoy a range of European dishes prepared using seasonal produce. La Bodega del Green offers a selection of traditional tapas at lunch and dinner. Flavour combinations and ingredients reflect Andalucian culture, while the bodega-style dining room adds a drop of sophistication. Bar 18+Uno acts as a vibrant, yet relaxed, meeting point throughout the day, serving coffee through the morning and afternoon and cocktails in the evening. Statement pieces of artwork adorn the walls. Outside, a large swimming pool curves around the looming palm trees and shrubbery, with a freeform edge that is lined with sun loungers and parasols. The guestrooms at the Sheraton Mallorca Arabella Golf Hotel have a warm, refined ambience. Crisp white sheets are contrasted with soft neutral colours, and touches of blue and brown in the armchairs and the panels of art that top the headboards. The windows look out on the extensive verdant grounds, with the sea visible in the distance in some rooms. The Junior Suites and Hole in One Suite have separate living areas with panoramic windows and furnished balconies. All rooms immerse guests in complete comfort and luxury and have abundant space. The Shine Spa prioritises the revitalisation and relaxation of hotel guests. Signature treatments are administered in specialised cabins, and guests can also use the steam bath, sauna, and whirlpool before and after. The idyllic indoor pool looks out past comfortable armchairs into the flourishing hotel gardens. The Sheraton Mallorca Arabella Golf Hotel is a five-star choice for anyone looking for facilities, luxury, and a serene location in Spain or 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.
