Guests check in at an ancient stone olive press and enjoy dinner next to five-decade-old stone walls at this 16th-century Mallorcan retreat.
Located on a protected 157-hectare nature reserve in Serra de Tramuntana, The Lodge is surrounded by fields of lavender and groves of almond and olive trees. It’s similarly rustic inside the hotel, which has been overhauled by interior designer Pilar García-Nieto – who’s adopted a minimal aesthetic that puts the focus on the building’s original details.
Plenty of traces of the hotel’s farmhouse past have been preserved, including drinking troughs, a monumental oil press and stone walls that would have sheltered generations of families. The weathered nature of these remnants is only emphasised by García-Nieto’s use of whitewashed walls, Crittal doors and simple, geometric furniture – much of it vintage.
The Lodge’s communal spaces are all located in the main building, along with six guest rooms, which start from around €680 per night. There are further 18 suites spread across the site – and a fleet of bicycles and golf carts on-hand to reach them.
