What you need to know about the hotel

Unique and creative facilities in a gorgeously secluded spot

  • The three-bedroom Villa, just a few minutes’ walk from the hotel, offers maximum privacy and a heated pool
  • El Olivo restaurant is set within an old olive press and still produces its own olive oil
  • The hotel offers a huge lineup of classes: art, sculpture, pottery, design, cooking, yoga, Tai Chi and more

Belmond La Residencia has 67 rooms and suites, plus one villa—all infused with romantic, elegant Mallorcan country style. The 16th century Son Moragues building, 17th century Son Canals building and Son Fony building (circa 1989) contain interiors decorated with antique and traditional Mallorca furniture. Throughout the hotel, you’ll also find works of art from local and Spanish artists.

As impressive as the art and décor are the restaurants, including award-winning destination El Olivo. Son Moragues Bistro and Tapas is a more casual option, Safareix pool restaurant serves up Mediterranean-inspired salads and seafood while Son Fony offers buffet breakfasts. Between meals, La Residencia’s impressive program of activities and classes is designed to help you relax and maybe learn a new skill.

Where is it and what's nearby

Belmond La Residencia is located in the Mallorcan village of Deià, surrounded by the Tramuntana Mountains

  • The hotel’s three lovable donkeys will take you up a trail to a rustic mountain refuge for a memorable feast
  • Just six minutes away, beautiful local cove Cala Deià is an ideal way to enjoy the Mediterranean Sea
  • Mallorca’s wines are rarely exported, so visit a local winery to taste labels you may never have the opportunity to try elsewhere

Belmond La Residencia has a fascinating location in the heart of Northwest Mallorca’s Tramuntana Mountains, which have been given UNESCO World Heritage status. And because it’s an island, the Mediterranean Sea is never more than a few minutes away.

The village of Deià is known for attracting artists, and this artistic heritage has made its way into the hotel. Then again, it’s hard not to feel inspired by buildings—including the Tower Suite, said to have been built as a watchtower by the Knights Templar—that sprawl among olive and citrus groves.

How to enjoy Mallorca

Luxury yachts gleam white in the bright sun, oranges ripen in the lush groves of Soller and children splash in the warm waters that lap the soft sands surrounding this lovely island

  • Palma’s cathedral, La Seu, is magnificent with ornate sandstone exteriors, stunning stained glass and a Gaudi-designed wrought-iron canopy over the altar
  • For a perfect morning, sip a café con leche while nibbling on a sugar-dusted ensaïmada (a favourite breakfast pastry among the locals)
  • Visit the former home of writer Robert Graves in Deià. His study is lined with his own books and his personal printing press is still on view

Composer Frédéric Chopin famously described the largest Balearic island of Mallorca as ’the most beautiful place in the world’. Champion tennis player Rafael Nadal agrees. Despite his multi-million income which allows him to live pretty much anywhere in the world, Nadal still favors his childhood home. With rocky cliffs, secluded sandy coves, olive groves, pine forests and the majestic Serra de Tramuntana mountain range, it is easy to see why.

With more than 340 miles of coast and 200 beaches, there’s plenty of seaside to choose from. For pine-lined secluded coves and quaint fishing villages, head to the east of the island. For family-friendly calm shallow waters and soft sands, the northern coast has beaches such as the lovely Port de Pollensa. Inland, you’ll find olive groves with tiny villages clinging to the hillside, as well as more than 20 golf courses.

    Sven Gevers, General manager

  • A word from the hotel

    The cocktail I would recommend is Zapata, a refreshing beverage perfect for the summer evenings in our gardens. For dinner I would recommend our lamb in olive crust or our wild sea bass roasted with herbs and citrus risotto.
    Vicente Hernández, Maître d’Hôtel

  • A word from the hotel

    I love the connection of Deià village with the arts. It is truly a unique place and it’s a pleasure to be able to mix the local art (paintings, sculptures) with the art of cuisine. This is genuine luxury.
    Guillermo Mendez, Executive Chef

  • A word from the hotel

    After a stroll through our olive groves with Pancho, Luna and Alba our loveable donkeys, Lorenzo will tantalise your taste buds with local specialities, including cheeses, ham, olives, pa amb oli, sobrassada, and much more. Drinks are also included. Our donkeys will carry water, and can take your bag in their panniers. The route leads up the hillside offering spectacular views and you will be transported to the real Mallorca. The experience is unforgettable and we can guarantee you will have a memorable excursion in the company of Lorenzo and Sabrina.
