Get pampered at an exclusive day spa

Staying in a luxurious Mallorcan hotel will often give you access to a spa, but you’re also spoilt for choice across the island when it comes to wellness oases. Why not dedicate an entire day or two to test various health and beauty treatments and book into one of these spas?

Unique to the island in its kind, the Son Brull Spa only uses natural products that were hand-produced on the island. Located in Pollensa, this spa is known for using Mallorcan products like almond and olive oil, flor de sal or aloe vera that will leave your skin rejuvenated.

The St. Regis Mardavall Hotel in Costa d’en Blanes hosts the Arabella Spa, where you can choose from luxurious Western and Eastern wellness treatments like Shiatsu, Swedish massages, or Ayurveda. Afterwards, stick around and relax in the sauna or the hydropool.

Offering lots of natural light with soothing mountain views, the luxe Talise Spa within the Jumeirah Port Sóller Hotel is a state-of-the art spa with an outdoor hydrotherapy pool and revitalising treatments from head to toe so you can leave every ounce of stress behind.

Enjoy a relaxing yoga class in nature

When holidaying on Mallorca, you might feel like strolling through the picturesque streets of a Mallorcan town, taking a refreshing swim in the ocean, or maybe treating your body to a yoga class for some extra relaxation. Yoga has become quite popular on the island with many new yoga studios opening their doors.

Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced yogi, you could join a yoga class in one of the many studios on the island (e.g., in Palma or Sóller) and choose from the many different types of yoga offered, from vinyasa, yin or hatha yoga to bikram and aerial yoga as well as pre- and postnatal yoga.

If a fixed time in a studio does not fit your holiday vibe, you can also book a private class, which can be tailored to your personal needs. A private session means that you can practice yoga with a teacher at any time and place, like a hotel terrace, the beach, a finca or even a yacht.

Go on a peaceful sailing trip around the island

Mallorca offers breathtaking beaches tucked away in idyllic bays that are ideal for discovering from the water. The island’s modern maritime infrastructure makes it one of the most popular places for sailing in Europe.

Whether you’re a sailing enthusiast or a complete beginner, there are various options to undertake a Mediterranean sailing trip. You could spend a few hours, half a day or even several days on board a sailing boat during an organised sailing trip and enjoy the sun and the refreshing ocean spray in your face.

If you have a sailing license, you can rent a sailboat any time in Mallorca choosing from yachts of different sizes. As an alternative, you can also charter a yacht including its crew for a private outing.
