With a richly historic capital, an abundance of breathtaking beaches and whitewashed villages peppering a lush rolling landscape, Menorca packs a lot into its modest size. The boutique hotels on the island, too, squeeze a lot into their bijou proportions, brimming with unique charm and a personal touch often lacking in bigger properties.

Sindic Hotel

Boutique Hotel
4.6/5 (28 Reviews)

Set snug against the ancient Pont de Sant Roc gateway in Mahón, Síndic Hotel could hardly be positioned closer to the Medieval heart of the city. Step inside, however, and the building has been brought up to date with a sleek contemporary interior design that still frames the occasional period feature. With just eight guest rooms, the vibe is intimate and strictly adults-only. Up top is a suntrap terrace with a plunge pool, where you can unwind on a lounger with drinks from the honesty bar.

Hidden among the labyrinthine cobbled lanes of old town Ciutadella, Hotel Tres Sants is certainly worth seeking out. It’s an artfully updated 18th-century mansion that celebrates the historical foibles of the building, dressing them with a light touch of boho-chic and atmospheric lighting. The eight rooms are very much individually styled, from wispy minimalism to colourful polished plaster. What really sets the hotel apart is the subterranean spa with a heated pool, where you can enjoy a candlelit soak under vaulted stone ceilings.

There’s something quintessentially Menorcan about the Can Sastre, from the tastefully understated styling and patterned tiling to the eclectic vintage furnishings and modern artworks. It occupies a former bakery, dating back to the 17th century, set in the historic centre of Ciutadella, just a block from the cathedral. Upgrade to the suite, and you’ll get treated to a freestanding terrazzo tub and sunny terrace with views over the old town.

Neighbouring one of the most important Talayotic sites on Menorca, Torralba d’en Salort, Hotel Antic occupies a beautifully converted Menorcan farmhouse in the interior of the island. Whitewashed walls, terracotta tiling and sandstone arches characterise this high-end, adults-only retreat, which is also set in immaculately landscaped gardens. Rooms balance traditional stone with contemporary styling and add quality comforts such as fluffy bathrobes and branded products. There are a pool long enough for laps and a restaurant with an emphasis on local organic ingredients.

Originally a merchant family’s townhouse home, this grand 18th-century residence has been reborn as a swish urban retreat. An artful mixture of natural woods, marés stone, and Farrow & Ball has resulted in an interior design that feels both chic and homely. An old vaulted cellar has been repurposed as a superb spa, while, in the rear garden, the pool offers a soak in the sun. What’s more, the central Mahón setting puts it a short stroll from the ample attractions of the capital.

Part Medieval Moorish fortress, part Neoclassical update, this fabulously grandiose boutique hotel is certainly one of the more unique ones on Menorca. In keeping with the timeless tranquility, things have been kept distinctly on the more rustic side of rustic-chic. There’s a secluded pool for summer swims, surrounded by pretty gardens patrolled by wild tortoises. An emphasis on traditional local gastronomy extends from breakfast through to dinner. The hotel will also rustle up picnics stuffed with local delicacies for day-tripping – the pretty Cala Alcaufar Beach is less than a 30-minute walk away.

Few hotels on the island pull off “palatial urban bolthole” with quite as much panache as the Can Faustino. Occupying an elegantly restored 16th-century palace certainly helps, together with a setting in the historic heart of Ciutadella. Converted from an ancient grotto, the bijou underground spa retains an otherworldly vibe. Impeccable service highlights the hotel’s five-star status, as does the refined cuisine served in the restaurant. Boats and horses are also put at guests’ disposal for exploring sea or land.

Casa Albertí has seven guest rooms

Built by the Albertí family in 1740, the great-grandfather’s coat of arms still adorns the elegant peach façade of Casa Albertí. A 2016 top-to-toe renovation added fresh contemporary styling throughout while respecting the ample architectural charm of the building. Spread over three floors, each of the 15 rooms is distinctly decorated, but all add high-end touches, such as egyptian cotton bedsheets and organic toiletries. Join in with a morning yoga session, before stepping out into the centre of Mahón to explore the capital.

Fontenille Menorca is the collective name for two distinctive hotels set in the rural south of the island. One is Santa Ponsa, a colonial-style 17th-century palace set in landscaped Moorish gardens. Torre Vella is a whitewashed former farmstead with a watchtower, set in extensive grounds, where animals wander among fruit trees and vegetable gardens. They’re located a short drive apart, and, between them, offer some of the best dining, wellness and leisure options on the island that guests of either hotel can enjoy.

    An adults-only hotel with 18th-century origins, Hotel Rural Biniarroca used to be a dairy farm before it was converted into these quaint rural lodgings. Think bougainvillea climbing whitewashed stone walls, secluded gardens brimming with well-tended plant life and absolute peace and tranquillity. A lovely green mosaic-lined pool provides somewhere to cool off, while the excellent cuisine is all locally sourced and the bar features a particularly impressive menu of gin and tonics.

    While, from the outside, this six-room boutique hotel looks like any other traditional Menorcan townhouse, the inside tells a different story. Opened in 2017, swish airy design takes the fore, with crisp 21st-century minimalism and modern artwork creating a bright and contemporary feel throughout. Original 19th-century detailing remains in the form of patterned tiling and wood-beamed ceilings. Don’t expect much in the way of facilities, but an excellent breakfast, hip and spacious rooms and super-friendly staff complete an outstanding little property. It’s also just steps from the cobbled streets of Cuitadella’s gorgeous old town centre.

    Once an 18th-century mansion by the name of Collingwood House, this 40-room boutique hotel is still brimming with old-world charm. A Regency-style salon serves local brews in chunky flagons, while an al fresco terrace means you can dine on seafood while enjoying views of fishing boats in the distance. As the name suggests, it was once the home of Admiral Lord Collingwood, a contemporary of Nelson, and visitors can take a tour of the historic property. You can also cool off in the swimming pool, knock a ball about on the tennis court or take a stroll down to the pretty Mahón waterfront.

    Tucked down a cobbled street in the sleepy town of Ferreries is this tiny gem of a hotel. An unassuming whitewashed façade is typical of its residential surrounds, but, inside, there is a fabulously quirky combination of vintage furniture, original artworks and 19th-century architectural features. Six bright and spacious guest rooms are simply and individually styled, with the odd hip, retro piece or splash of coloured fabrics against white plaster walls. Since opening in 2010, it’s also been a hub for local culture, hosting regular exhibitions and small plays. Its island-centre location puts it within easy reach of numerous beaches and tourist attractions.

The 20 rooms of the family-run property combine oodles of traditional charm with a stylishly modern update, while a freeform swimming pool provides a serenely bucolic spot in which to cool off. An excellent restaurant incorporates plenty of local produce and extends to a lovely pine-shaded terrace for romantic candlelit dining.
