Majorca is home to 60% of the accommodation in the Balearic Islands. Together with its strategy based on offering visitors the best options sustainably and innovatively, the island’s background and experience in tourism make it the perfect destination to enjoy a holiday in its different types of accommodation. From resorts and private holiday homes to authentic, unique abodes and camping in Majorca’s countryside, there is something for every traveller and their diverse needs. Technological tools have been developed to ensure that confidence in the destination begins from the moment a decision is made to visit the island, such as the Majorca Tourism website or the “Playas Seguras” (Safe Beaches) app.
On top of continuous development to adapt to the latest technologies sustainably, Majorcan hotels also offer visitors a wide variety of services and complementary offers to make their experience on the island unique and unforgettable. Thus, located along the Majorcan coast and in the cosmopolitan capital of Palma, more hotels are opting for specialisation as a differentiating aspect: golf courses, sports facilities or parks and swimming pools for the little ones are just some of the options on offer in Majorca. Palma has three of the best luxury hotels in the world, as recognised by the Condé Nast Johansens 2021 guide; LLorenç Parc de la Mar, Hotel es Princep, and Palacio Can Marques.
If you want to get away from the tourist areas and explore rural Majorca, visitors can stay at the inland and rural hotels which are located in picturesque, traditional villages and landscapes of untamed beauty. Getting into the other Majorca, the still unknown, has never been so easy. Majorca has recently introduced the “Tourist Day Tour” programme. The aim of the project is to provide an intimate and unique cultural and dynamic perspective on the island’s towns and villages. Weekly guided tours are available in these towns, which will cover their history, culture, gastronomy and local products.
Rural estates located in the Serra de la Tramuntana and Pla de Majorca base their stay on the authenticity and tranquility that comes from direct contact with nature in the island’s countryside. Refurbished to accommodate those who are looking for a different kind of holiday, these old farmhouses and manor houses give you an insight into Majorcan customs and philosophy of life – a unique agritourism experience in the most local of Majorca.
Far from the cosmopolitan life of Palma and immersed in utter tranquillity are sanctuaries and monasteries where peace and spirituality fill the atmosphere in direct contact with nature. These mystical lodgings have unique locations in places of extraordinary beauty that will make your stay unforgettable.
For those who are looking for an experience in close contact with nature, the Majorcan camping areas and refuges are the best place to stay without having to leave the beauty of the Serra de Tramuntana Mountain range.
Additionally, Majorca offers private holiday homes as an alternative to traditional accommodation. These villas and apartments can be rented for short periods of time and are located all over the island, giving visitors that home away from home feeling.
