Quieter than its party-central Balearic neighbours Mallorca and Ibiza, Menorca has all you need for a blissfully romantic getaway. The laid-back Mediterranean island is a dream for exploring together, full of deserted bays, untouched hillsides, candlelit seafood restaurants and traditional villages often overlooked by package holiday tourists. Make the most of your quality time as a couple by staying at one of these hotels, bookable on Culture Trip, to make your stay even more memorable.

Steer clear of faceless resorts and choose this more intimate boutique hotel for a truly special stay. The property, in a delightful 18th-century house in the east of the island, has already thought of everything you’ll need to relax, including picnic service, massages, forest trails for walking and even a living room filled with books and a fireplace for chilly evenings. The 15 to-die-for rooms have bare beams, polished wooden floors and peaceful countryside views.

Get away from it all together at this remodelled Menorcan country house with gardens inspired by the Italian Riviera, brimming with roses and fruit trees. Spend lazy days by one of the pools, relax with a massage or stroll to the archaeological site of Trepucó, just 10 minutes’ walk away. Just be sure to drop by the hotel bar every afternoon where homemade cakes are served with the hotel’s signature gin and tonics.

You’ve never far from the calming sound of crashing waves at this adults-only property a moment away from Menorca’s perfectly white Cala Galdana beach. Many rooms and the pretty curved pool overlook the sea on this horseshoe-shaped cove, but anyone out to impress should book the premium double jacuzzi seaview to watch the tide from your very own bubbling hot tub. Don’t miss a romantic meal at Oliva restaurant either, where traditional Menorcan specialities are served each evening.

This super-chic hotel offers the perfect grown-up escape. A traditional Menorcan country house decked out in billowing white muslin, limestone and natural wood, the property is less than 3km (2mi) from the sea and surrounded by wild olive forests and flourishing bougainvillea. Every room has its own balcony, terrace or private garden where you can toast your time away with a glass of wine produced in Torralbenc’s very own vineyards.

Every luxury has been considered at this opulent boutique hotel right next to the town hall in the island’s pretty capital Mahón. All 16 rooms have complimentary minibars, wood-burning fireplaces, organic bath products and Netflix, while guests can also drop by the spa for treatments, sign up for private yoga classes, order a picnic to bring to the beach or dine by candlelight under orange trees in the courtyard. There’s even a lookout tower for panoramic views of Monte Toro, La Mola fortress and the city’s harbour.

Feel like royalty on your well-deserved break by booking this 16th-century palace in Ciutadella with 21 guest rooms, three suites and a grand villa with a private pool. The hotel has its very own boat when you fancy a private trip out on the water, plus a spa in an ancient cave and a nearby country club, where you can walk to the deserted cove of Ses Fontanelles with a vegetarian picnic hamper straight from the hotel’s garden.

If you’d rather have a little more space on your romantic retreat, this aparthotel with direct access to the Cala en Bosc beach will give you plenty of room to spread out. The studios have a living room and an amply stocked kitchen, so you can rustle up dinner à deux and dine on your own private balcony under the stars. Elsewhere, there’s a buffet restaurant and seafront pool or stroll straight to the sand to lounge with a fruity cocktail from the beach bar.
