The best luxury hotels on Menorca

MenorcaFlickr user Morfheos

Although much less popular or brash than its neighbours, Mallorca and Ibiza, the island of Menorca offers equally lovely beaches, clear seas and guaranteed sunshine. Even outside the peak holiday season, it is warm enough for relaxing on the beach or enjoying walks along its coastal paths or, inland, along its many hiking trails. And if you are looking for somewhere soothing and comfortable to base your stay - perhaps with a private pool, a good restaurant, a choice of suites or maybe a spa - then our pick of the best luxury hotels on Menorca is the perfect place to start. Some of Menorca’s luxury hotels are close to beaches, others inland, while others are adults-only.

In Ciutadella

Hotel Can Faustino

  • In the old town of Ciutadella, Hotel Can Faustino offers stylish, minimalist rooms - some with balconies - in a 16th-century former castle. With a quiet and understated atmosphere, it’s a lovely place to relax - helped by a choice of indoor and outdoor pool, plus spa.

In Mahon

Jardi de ses Bruixes

  • The smart townhouse Jardi de ses Bruixes, with its sea-blue shutters and location close to the harbour of Mahon, offers elegant rooms (some with balconies) that mix contemporary with antique furnishings. There’s also a peaceful courtyard for breakfasts and, in the evenings, relaxing with a drink.

Adults only luxury hotels

Ca Na Xini

  • For an adults-only retreat, Ca Na Xini offers just eight, chic, white-on-white rooms in the surroundings of a traditional country house. With a stylish dining room, excellent wines - many aged in its own cellar - and a pretty pool you will feel private and pampered.
  • Surrounded by rolling fields and plains, the former farmhouse and outbuildings of Torralbenc have been converted into light and sleek contemporary rooms, most with balconies or terraces, and some with private pools. There’s an elegant pool and an award-winning chef, too.
  • Set in beautiful, flower-filled gardens, Hotel Rural Morvedra Nou offers 19 rustic-chic rooms spread throughout its grounds, many with private terraces. With a pool and nearby walks, and a beach, and the town of Ciutadella within striking distance, the hotel’s hideaway location offers the best of all worlds.

If you’re looking for a sunshine-island holiday, within easy reach of the UK, but away from the tourist hot-spots and with a comfortable, relaxing base in which to stay, the best luxury hotels on Menorca could well fit the bill.
