For Spring break, think Mallorca. It’s arguably the best season to visit the Spanish isle, when it's abloom with flowers and summer crowds haven’t yet arrived to soak up the sun (and revel in the Mediterranean good life) by the sea. Not only that, but the Dubai-based Jumeirah Group is set to debut a brand new resort that’s promising to up the luxury quotient on the island. Situated on a hilltop on Mallorca’s pristine northwest coast, the Jumeirah Port Soller Hotel & Spa overlooks the sea and Serra de Tramuntana mountain range (a UNESCO World Heritage site).
In fact, more than half of the 120 guest rooms will have views of the Mediterranean, while the others overlook the mountains and charming fishing village of Port Sóller from their individual balconies. The top digs are the two specialty suites: the Royal and the Lighthouse. Designed to blend into the natural landscape, Jumeirah’s first leisure resort in Europe will have two swimming pools, a pirate-themed kids club, five restaurants and bars, three meeting rooms, and the Talise spa where treatments will incorporate local products like olive oil, lemons, oranges and almonds. Apparently the construction costs equate to over 1 million euros spent per room.
