Castell Son Claret, a beautiful nineteenth century castle, hotel and estate set within the foothills of Mallorca’s dramatic Tramuntana mountain range, reopened for the 2018 season.

The hotel has revealed details of new enhancements, including the creation of three new pool suites and a new menu for the Balearic Islands’ only two Michelin star restaurant, Zaranda.

This year Castell Son Claret will celebrate its fifth anniversary. To mark this milestone, the hotel has carried out improvement work during the winter period, including the addition of new terraces and balconies to a number of suites; upgrading the outdoor bar on the terrace of the Olivera restaurant; and creating a new refreshment bar and enlarged sunbathing area around its outdoor pool, which now has unobstructed panoramic vista with the removal of a nearby electrical tower.

In response to guests’ desire for suite accommodation and to immerse themselves in the Castell’s blissful and fragrant gardens, with their far-reaching views of the Tramuntana mountain range, the hotel has begun work on three new pool suites within the estate, bringing the total number of suites at the hotel to 15. Located at the bottom of the gardens next to the tennis courts, these suites represent the development of Castell Son Claret, with a fresh design and modern interiors. These spectacular suites will have direct access to their own garden, with a private sun deck and individual 10m2 pool. There will be minimal disturbance to guests from work on these stand-alone suites as they are well hidden from view. Work is expected to be completed during summer 2018.

Visitors to Mallorca can experience Castell Son Claret’s suites for themselves with a new offer for 2018, Suite Castell. Guests booking a minimum of five nights in a suite will benefit from a 40% reduction in the cost of their accommodation. Alternatively, those looking for an early season getaway can also take advantage of Castell’s four-for-three package. Guests booking four consecutive nights during 2018 will only pay for three. Both offers are subject to availability and rates include accommodation on a double occupancy basis, as well as daily breakfast, internet access, parking, tax and service.

Castell Son Claret is home to Zaranda, the only two Michelin starred restaurant in the Balearic Islands. For the 2018 season, Executive Chef Fernando P. Arellano will present three new tasting menus – Dreams, Memories and Experiences – inspired by Mallorcan history and gastronomic inspirations from his travels around the world.

A historic nineteenth century former castle just outside the village of Calvía, Castell Son Claret has 38 elegant suites and rooms located in seven buildings. Surrounded by Arabian gardens and the fragrance of bergamot, grapefruit, orange, rose and jasmine, the rooms have an elegant and contemporary design, many notable for their terrace or gardens and others for their private pools. The hotel’s spa uses many ingredients found in the gardens, including almond blossom and lavender in its treatments. Castell Son Claret is located at the foot of the UNESCO protected La Tramuntana mountains, surrounded by a lavish park and gardens in 326 acres of unspoilt nature, giving and unparalleled sense of freedom, access to pure mountain air and spectacular views.
