Our favourite rooms
Opt for sleeping quarters that come with a roof terrace for maximum smugness, Vit D-absorption and view-appreciation.
Go for cooling dips in the unheated al fresco swimming pool.
Ládico Spa is set in the vaulted basement, reminiscent of ancient Turkish baths. It’s on the snug side (there’s room for two, tops) and has a Jacuzzi and steam room. Massages can be arranged: pick from full body, classic, muscle-relief or relaxing.
Bring a thirst for gin – Menorca has a soft spot for it. Try the local pomada: a refreshing, sherbet-y mix of gin and lemonade.
Staff can arrange hairdressing and beauty treatments, with help from the spa.
