The sun-kissed seaside island of Mallorca is catching the eye of discerning travelers worldwide as one of the top luxury travel destinations. The island’s recent revival can be attributed to several new five-star properties leading the island’s hospitality transformation, complemented by a dramatic landscape with more than 200 magnificent beaches, a UNESCO World Heritage mountain range, and cultural sites dating back to the 13th century. Following the debut of a new direct flight from JFK via United, Mallorca is more accessible than ever. In 2023, a record number of superyachts anchored in its waters.
Zafiro Palace Andratx is a newly opened, Mallorcan-family-owned five-star retreat surrounded by sweeping views of the Sierra de Tramuntana mountain range overlooking the shimmering turquoise sea. The striking all-suite resort is built around the contours of a towering mountain, with a unique horizontal architectural design that capitalizes on outdoor spaces. Five restaurants, a trio of garden and skyscape infinity pools, a luxurious spa and wellness center, and bespoke amenities bring the splendor of the island into the grounds of the hotel. A new all-inclusive option caters to luxury travelers seeking exclusivity and authentic experiences.
Luxury accommodations: Zafiro Palace Andratx’s 304 generously sized suites are resplendent in authentic Mallorcan character and adorned with locally sourced décor. Standout artwork is from female-owned ABA ART and take-home vanity cases are designed by Teixits Vicens, one of the island’s three artisanal fabric makers still producing textiles in the traditional method. Each suite is appointed with a private pool or hydromassage bathtub and a secluded terrace offering unrivaled views. All-inclusive nightly rates in high season start at $678.
Island charm: Just a short stroll away from the serene seaside village of Camp de Mar and a quick drive from the lively harbor town of Port d’Andratx, the resort is surrounded by natural beauty. Ten minutes down the road lies the Puerto Portals, the island’s most prestigious yachting harbor, where guests can enjoy chartered boat tours or designer shops. Guests have access to complimentary electric scooters to explore the nearby coastline and sprawling beaches like a local.
Golf destination: The hotel is located next to the Andratx Golf Course, an 18-hole championship golf course that includes the longest hole in Spain. Golf and stay packages are available exclusively for Zafiro Hotel guests, providing priority access and special rates.
All-Inclusive Redefined: Unveiled in 2023, the hotel’s new all-inclusive package is one of the first of its kind on the island.
