Esplendido

An avante-garde seaside spot has fast become the style savvy hotel of choice in the buzzy Port of Soller. You cannot escape the beautifully orientated balconies and terraces on each cascading floor, nor the swanky infinity pool and relaxing jacuzzi area. The white-suited staff at the stylish lounge bar add their own flair and exotic allure. Most of the bright and airy rooms have stunning terrace views and look out to the popular Soller seafront sunset.

L’Avenida

L’Avenida is a modern day mansion and one of the coolest boutique hotels on the island. Based in central Soller, it prides itself on chic urban living in a captivating setting. Honeymooners love the large Philippe Starck-clad bathrooms and the four-poster beds with 600 threadcount Egyptian cotton sheets. Gazing out over the surrounding mountain ranges, whilst chilling by citrus groves, it will be easy to see why this hotel is a glossy mag favourite. With eight charming rooms, this epitomises idyllic intimacy.

what we think

Rustic Catalan tradition and contemporary style sit side-by-side in this Balearic haven. Throw your beach towel into the crystal blue ocean and replace it with a beach club hammock nestled between palm trees and dj decks. Alternatively, soak up the sunshine on a plush white-cushioned pontoon, where your hardest choice will be whether to order another fresh mojito or enjoy a seaside massage. Chill, cocktails and coastal indulgence.
