The Son Gener hotel is an 18th Century farmhouse lovingly restored set in acres of private property in a very rural and quiet area of Majorca. Far from the madness of the tourist-thronged beach and thong-bottomed festivities of the south; the beaches nearby are as if you stepped back in time, perhaps far back enough to be able to swim in Neptune’s wake. Meals are organic and locally-sourced often from the hotel’s neighbors and their own hens. The chef’s menu is traditional Majorcan flavours and your wine comes from the hotel’s own cellar, deep in the Spanish hillside. Interiors have the cool simplicity of traditional Spanish life and the surrounding gardens make for perfect dining venues. There is a full yoga studio and an annual yoga retreat. Therapists are available and trained in all the usual therapies and luxury massages. You can also play golf all day at the impressive range nearby.
