Our favourite rooms
The rooms are scattered across the main house and standalone suites around the grounds. SAD sufferers should go for a light-flooded Junior Suite; number 8 in this category has sloping ceilings and bucolic views delivered straight to your bed. The Garden Suites have private, estate-showcasing terraces. We also love secluded Deluxe Garden Room 18, which is reached through a woodland-flanked path, for its vineyard-facing terrace; and the roomy, sundowner-ready terrace in Room 22. For those who like to swing cats, be warned that Room 25 is the smallest.
There are two: a heated one at the spa, and one in front of the main building, perfectly positioned for admiring the countryside mid-front crawl. Shade-seekers can hide out in the pergola; sunloungers are there for the sun-worshippers. Both pools are open between 9am and 9pm.
The cows have been moved along to make room for the spa in their spacious former shed, which is surrounded by palm trees. From the indoor pool or a hammock on the veranda, you can enjoy post- or pre-treatment views of the island’s central plains and the monastery-topped Puig de Randa mountain. Natura Bissé treatments, a fireplace, sauna and hammam await.
Bring trail-ready trainers and/or sensible shoes for hermitage-hunting hikes.
One of the Deluxe Garden Rooms is suitable for wheelchair users; the spa and outdoor pool are also accessible.
This one’s for fully grown Smiths only.
The finca has a kitchen garden and orchards supplying much of the produce; the rest is sourced locally. Solar power is used to heat water, and local building materials were used in the design.
