Swerve the busy family-friendly beaches and book this tranquil property in quieter Canyamel instead, where you’ll have the golden sand, local restaurants and sweeping sea views almost to yourself.

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. Back at the hotel, take things easy in the idyllic wellness centre, natural rock whirlpool tub on the beach, oceanfront infinity pools and fine-dining restaurant.

With its palm-tree lined pool, white low-slung buildings and turquoise accents, Mar Senses in Puerto de Pollensa is an adults-only hotel in Mallorca with 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.

Hotel L'Avenida

There’s a wow factor around every corner at this adults-only hotel, set within orange groves in the mountain valley of Soller. This boutique property, in a renovated 100-year-old mansion, has just 12 intimate guest rooms with opulent extras including four-poster beds, roll-top tubs and mountain views. Start each day with breakfast on the poolside terrace before chartering a superyacht to watch dolphins, taking a private tennis lesson with the hotel coach or heading out on a mountain trek. We won’t judge if you prefer to snooze on a sun lounger instead.

Hotel Creu de Tau Art & Spa

This extraordinary property in Capdepera is set within an old convent and looks over a hilltop castle and the glittering sea beyond. Lounge on the double Balinese beds poolside, pad around the 200sqm (2,1152sqft) spa under vaulted ceilings or dine among original stone arches in Cova Negra, where exquisite Mediterranean-inspired dishes look as good as they taste. Fancy your own outdoor jacuzzi, fireplace and terrace with hammocks? Book the Royal Suite.

The seriously upscale Pleta de Mar, which opened in 2017, is one of the more recent adults-only additions to the island, and without doubt one of the most chic. You have the pick of two infinity pools, nestled among olive trees and scented pine woodland overlooking the east coast. 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?
