Belmond La Residencia

- Each guest room and suite has been styled for serenity. Be soothed by rustic white walls, beamed ceilings, and terracotta tiled floors; an invitation for cool and calm. Junior Suites feature Mallorcan antiques and sun-dappled balconies. Alternatively, Executive Suites are a haven of ambiance with private plunge pools–perfect for alfresco living.
- The Designer Suite by Matthew Williamson is perhaps the most beautiful one in the hotel. The vision of British designer Matthew Williamson, this suite is the most captivating hideaway in Mallorca. Be swept up in vibrant colors, botanical imagery, and luxe textures, contrasting decadent rustic features.
Wine & Dine
- Under the steady hand of Chef Guillermo Mendez, who has been with the hotel for almost three decades, they champion both Mediterranean cuisine and wine from a burgeoning local scene. While the hotel’s fine-dining options include the romantic El Olivo, you can also choose to take it easy over tapas at Café Miró. Named after the celebrated Spanish artist, you’ll find 33 of his works adorning the walls.
- Their housemade olive oil is served throughout the restaurants and incorporated into treatments in the award-winning spa.
- Art abounds in every corner here. Beyond their in-house gallery, there are over 750 original works by local artists displayed across their rooms. Visit the studio of Alan Hydes, the resident painter, for an art class. Or create something three-dimensional with resident sculptor Juan Waelder. Their bi-annual art competition supports emerging artisans from the community. It’s this kind of commitment to their environment that has led locals to call them La Res.
Wellness & Spa
- Indulge all the senses in the award-winning retreat. An exquisite menu of fully personalized treatments– each infused with indigenous flora -is available at their luxury spa. Mallorca’s spectacular scenery can be enjoyed from the alfresco terrace; the perfect spot for our signature massage.

Worth Getting out of Bed for
- Take an art class, explore the region’s cultural treasures by Vespa, hike in the hills... or simply let the hotel pack a picnic on one of its resident donkeys, amble up into the ancient terraces, and enjoy a Mallorcan feast with a view.
- Should you wish to explore, the hotel is cradled by UNESCO-protected countryside which entices hikers. Guests can also venture out on two wheels with a professional cyclist as a guide. Those in search of something a little more high-octane should explore via vespa—they’ll even pack a picnic for you.
- Everybody loves Ca’s Petro March on Cala Deia, but we prefer Sa Foradada nearby. You can either reach this spot by boat or by taking a beautiful 45-minute hike down from the car park — either way, swim in the glorious glassy waters in the cove before lunch. Here, it is all about the paella and Mallorcan white wines.
- Nama is a beautifully designed South East Asian restaurant with one of Deia’s loveliest terraces overlooking the Tramuntana mountains. Order the seafood noodles and crispy duck salad.
- Whether you sit in the romantic restaurant with its flickering candlelight or on the pretty terrace, Sebastian is a timeless delight. Run by the chef Sebastian and his wife Patricia, it focuses on seasonal dishes, using ingredients fresh from the market and local wines.
