About Orient

In the heart of the Tramuntana mountain range, the pretty hamlet of Orient is a cluster of honey coloured houses slightly precariously positioned on the side of a hill. Surrounded by olive trees. And some of the best places to stay in Orient are in amongst these peaceful houses.

Orient is remote, with an excitingly dangerous approach along hairpin bends winding in and around the mountains, and it is best known by walkers and those who’re looking for a place to escape everything. This is also the starting point for several hikes. The best places to stay in Orient promise the peace and tranquility this part of the island is known for.

For a romantic hideaway

  • Son Palou is a 12 rom, family run hotel in centre of Orient. The building is pale sandstone and bright terracotta and you’re surrounded by the green of the gardens and the surrounding valley.

For contemporary chic

  • L’Hermitage Hotel & Spa is an off-the-beaten-track oasis surrounded olive and citrus trees and the beautiful Mallorcan countryside. The decor is chic and contemporary and there’s a spa and an outdoor pool with magnificent views.

Still not sure which is the best place to stay in Orient for you?
