My last post about Suite Treats Mallorca featured a finca hotel full of authentic traditional features, in a hamlet near the village of Selva. In this post, I feature the suites at Castell Son Claret in southwest Mallorca. The immaculate, modern 5-star hotel is a former 19th-century castle set in a verdant paradise at the foot of the Serra de Tramuntana mountains, near Es Capdellà village.
Castell Son Claret reopened for the 2022 season on March 1st, with the news that during the winter months, the hotel converted four existing rooms into two more spacious and modern suites with private outdoor space. We haven’t seen these rooms yet, but last year stayed in two of the hotel’s other luxurious suites and can highly recommend them. Castell Son Claret’s website details the various types of suite and rooms available; these are the two suites we stayed in.
Pool Suite at Castell Son Claret
A stylish suite with separate bedroom and lounge, and direct access to a fragrant and private garden with 10m2 swimming pool and sundeck and loungers from which to appreciate your good fortune. Like all the rooms we’ve stayed in at Castell Son Claret, this type of suite has a super-spacious and well-equipped bathroom.
This is the suite for you if you want privacy while you sunbathe or swim. Breakfast beside your own pool? Why not? A wonderful choice for a romantic getaway or honeymoon. Or for a novelist needing a peaceful writing sanctuary to meet a deadline.
In 2020 Castell Son Claret added four new garden suites, in a newly constructed two-storey block within the grounds of the estate. It’s a pleasant short walk between these suites and the main hotel but you can be whisked there by buggy if you prefer. The two ground-floor suites have a private garden; we stayed in a first-floor suite, with a large, furnished balcony and the benefit of longer views of the glorious countryside from its elevated position.
