Have some champagne, wear something red and have twelve grapes as the clock chimes the New Year in. These traditions – based in part on superstition – assure us we are going to get the New Year off to a good start, that it will be full of blessings and joys. There is something else, in addition to traditions, that is a guarantee we will get off to a good start: a get away break to disconnect and to think about out your resolutions for the New Year. It can be an unbeatable plan to celebrate New Year’s Eve, away for your home, or as New Year’s Day is a Thursday, how do you feel about having Friday off and a long weekend? We recommend a stay in an incredible place in Mallorca, the destination we know best, and where our shoes originate from.
Getting away near the sea is always a guarantee you will relax because listening to the waves, their soothing lap, entrances you, clears the world from your mind. In its own right the island is a perfect destination, but we know a unique enclave where you can hide away and put everything far behind, at least for a few days: at the boutique hotel Posada Terra Santa. It stands in a privileged place, in the high part of the city, away from the tourists. There it is the only hotel, a landowner’s house from the sixteenth century, in its classic Mallorcan style. It has gothic arches, and a solemn medieval façade decorated with renaissance elements, all subtly enhancing this cosy hotel. Inside it offers all that one can demand of the twentieth first century in comfort, design and technology. Its decoration is never over-stated. It is a true oasis in the middle of the picturesque historical quarter. On its roof this modern inn has a small swimming pool with views over the cathedral and a spa where you can relax and be at peace.
Plus, the accommodation offers maximum tranquillity and is on a personal scale: there are 26 exclusive bedrooms, in such a way that each guest is treated as special. They are completely refurbished, full of light and have all the modern comforts. They overlook either the grand inner patio, or the narrow and calm medieval streets of the neighbourhood.
The cuisine is another wonder that will be to your delight. “La Despensa del Barón” is the name of the restaurant on the ground floor. It is a gallery under the sixteenth century arches. Its decoration is both noble and welcoming and in its large salon you can enjoy breakfast, tapas, other dishes and the most select wines and champagnes.
What’s more, if you come with your couple, we offer a wonderful extra for both of you: night in a top quality room, and buffet breakfast. on your arrival you will be welcomed with champagne and chocolate in your bedroom, and you can enjoy private use of the relax swimming pool and a 30 minute massage for both of you. Could you start off the New Year in a better way?
Start 2015 away from the grind, and fulfil your first resolution. Enjoy time for yourself and be happy.
