The weekend is close and we feel like doing something different, running away from the routine and having fun for two days with family or friends. This post is dedicated to all those who want to pack, because from the Hotel Son Caliu Spa Oasis, we are going to propose that you enjoy a weekend getaway in Mallorca.
Your little getaway will last a little more than 48 hours, that means we will have to prioritize and visit those places that characterize the island. And we cannot forget its tasty gastronomy. We will recommend you the best known recipes and where you can try them.
If you arrive on Friday afternoon, you can move to the center and start the weekend strolling through the old town of Palma. The Cathedral of Mallorca, the Almudaina Palace, the Lonja and the Plaza Mayor are some of the points of interest that you should not miss on your visit to this beautiful city. Before returning to the hotel, we suggest you to make a stop for dinner in one of the many restaurants or bars in the city and try the famous 'variado', you can not leave the island without trying one. A great idea when arriving at the hotel would be to end the evening by having a cocktail in a relaxed and elegant atmosphere. For example, in the Capricho Cocktail Bar, located on the ground floor of the hotel.
On Saturday you can dedicate it to enjoy some of the most emblematic towns of Mallorca. The route that we are going to propose is in the Serra de Tramuntana, one of the great treasures of the Balearic Islands, which has also been recognized as World Heritage by Unesco. You can start the route in Valldemossa; strolling through its little streets while you eat a potato cake is a great deal.
Continue to Deyá, and do not hurry to arrive, the views are stunning. In this town you will find several restaurants where you can taste exquisite dishes of Mallorcan food. The last stop on the route, undoubtedly, must be in Fornalutx. It is often referred to as ‘the most beautiful town in Spain’ and we assure you that its rustic charm will make you fall in love.
At dinner time, we suggest you don't miss the thematic buffets of our Biniagual Restaurant. The gastronomic offer is exquisite, you can taste from the best dishes of Mediterranean cuisine to the tastiest international recipes in a very select environment.
On Sunday morning you can take advantage of it and a walk through Son Caliu and Portals Nous. Enjoying the sea breeze and the sun of Mallorca on the terrace of our Beach Club is a good way to start the day.
Before eating, we propose three options: the first; visit Bellver Castle, a Gothic fortification built in the 14th century; the second; discover the Pilar and Joan Miró Foundation, a place to live the art of Joan Miró and other artists of the 20 th and 21 st centuries; by last; if you prefer something more relaxed, you can enjoy some of our treatments at the Spa Oasis to recover your energy.
After lunch, take advantage of the last hours of your getaway to take a dip in our pool. And if you still have some time left and you feel like saying goodbye to the city, we recommend that you get lost in the streets of Jaime III and Paseo Mallorca until you reach the La Lonja neighborhood.
