Even the location of this romantic cliff-top bolthole, on the edge of the Llevant nature reserve, is adult-focused. The Caves of Arta, medieval castle of Capdepera, prehistoric village of Ses Paisses and the 13th-century watchtower Torre de Canyamel are all minutes away, while exclusive golf courses and strenuous hikes are on the doorstep.

With its palm-tree lined pool, white low-slung buildings and turquoise accents, Mar Senses in Puerto de Pollensa has a distinctly glamorous air. Think a white baby grand piano in the bar, massaging waterfall features in the pool, a terrace cocktail bar and a gloriously peaceful spa with a Finnish sauna and Turkish bath. The sumptuous buffet restaurant is just as impressive, with its show-cooking areas, stations of local produce and a dessert bar to die for.

We won’t judge if you prefer to snooze on a sun lounger instead.

The 30 luxury suites are scattered throughout the scenic grounds with high-end amenities such as Bang & Olufsen stereos and L’Occitane toiletries – and why not really blow the budget on a top-end suite featuring sea-view hot tubs for two?
