While Menorca isn’t known for glitzy five-star hotels, luxury needn’t be defined by private butlers, chartered yachts and monogrammed bathrobes. It can be in more modest details, such as personalised service, great design and imaginative dining. Here’s our selection of upmarket hotels on Menorca – all bookable with Culture Trip.
This former 16th-century palace is hands-down one of the most luxurious places to stay on the island. Service is attentive and personalised, while the hotel rooms are brimming with high-end amenities, and the restaurant is world-class. A luxe spa is housed in an ancient grotto, and the outdoor pool is heated year-round. Positioned on the edge of Ciutadella’s beautiful Old Town with views over the harbour, the setting also scores top marks.
Surrounded by scenic countryside a short drive from the south coast, this former dairy farm comprises a beautifully renovated main house, stables and barn. 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 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.
This luxury hotel, converted from a traditional 19th-century Menorcan farmstead, is one of the island’s finest examples of boutique rustic-chic. The property is set in a series of low-rise whitewashed buildings with plenty of wonderful vantage points overlooking the Mediterranean Sea in the distance – one from the stylish infinity-edge pool that also features countryside panoramas. For a real treat, and maximum privacy, book the Pool Cottage, which has a private plunge pool in a secluded garden.
Set into limestone cliffs overlooking the turquoise waters of Cala Galdana bay, this upscale hotel has a setting to take your breath away. Each of the 347 rooms benefits from those stunning vistas, together with access to three hotel restaurants and infinity-edge pool. Service and dining are also top-notch, plus a summer kids’ club takes care of the little ones while the grown-ups can luxuriate in sea-view jacuzzis.
Jardí de ses Bruixes (meaning Dandelion Garden) occupies a traditional townhouse right in the centre of the capital’s pretty Old Town. It combines original architectural details with a warm, inviting atmosphere and stylish decor. The 16 rooms are bright and beautifully finished, fusing contemporary minimalism with traditional tiling and original antiques. All rooms feature wood-burning stoves for snug winter evenings. You can also take breakfast in the courtyard under orange trees, enjoy a soak in the luxurious basement spa or climb to the lookout tower with 360-degree vistas over the picturesque surroundings.
Set on Cala Galdana, this swish, adults-only hotel has spectacular views over this most picturesque cove. ARTIEM Audax also has one of the most impressive spas on Menorca, if not the Balearics, together with a fabulous rooftop infinity pool. Super eco-friendly policies and practices also make this one of the greenest hotels on the island.
This upscale, child-free resort hotel certainly scores high on style, with a swish contemporary finish adding to the chilled, grown-up vibe throughout. There are two outdoor swimming pools, one of which is heated over the winter months, and a deluxe underground spa featuring the Menorcan wine experience, which utilises grape products. It’s the rooftop terrace, however, that really steals the show with six hot tubs and views over the Bay of Mahón, plus the bonus of some spectacular sunsets to really set a romantic mood.
