Our favourite rooms
Traditionalists will like the Deluxe Double Rooms, which each have a private terrace and plunge pool, enticing king-size bed and sea view. Decor is inspired by the distinctive honey-hued stone terraces from the north of the island. If you’re feeling extravagant, book the palatial Terrace Suite and wake up to views of the mountains and the Med.
If you prefer your water unsalted, stick to the hotel’s two adults-only pools: the indoor-to-outdoor heated pool at the Spa Bodyna Maricel, or the outdoor unheated pool by the main building.
Rough stone walls, relaxation beds facing out to sea from a vaulted corridor, and sleek wood and glass accents: Bodyna Spa is a delightfully unique pampering space. A fleet of white-clad therapists pummel, anoint and scrub guests – in relaxing fashion – in five treatment rooms, including a couples room and a suite. There's also an indoor-outdoor pool, hammam, Jacuzzi and sauna, and a garden to take a post-treatment snooze in. There's a fitness room for gym bunnies, and a hairdresser so you'll leave perfectly coiffed.
Glamorous swimwear and giant sunhat for see-and-be-seen Med-view pool lounging; snorkelling kit for admiring Mallorca's spectacular marine scene.
Don't expect much from the touristy surroundings: this is a hotel to hole up in for the weekend, or to use a base for escaping into Palma.
